Astros signed LHP Joe Thatcher to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
He'll earn $1 million if he makes the roster (which shouldn't be an issue as long as he's healthy) with an addition $1.3 million available in incentives. Thatcher is a prototypical LOOGY, as he's pitched under 40 innings each of the last five seasons. He's good at what he does, though, boasting a career 3.40 ERA and 244/79 K/BB ratio over 238 innings while holding lefties to a .230/.289/.351 batting line. Feb 13 - 12:38 PM
