Scott Feldman only definite Astros starter

On a pitching staff filled with lots of potential, the one big free agent signing is the only one guaranteed a job.

MLB.com’s Brian McTaggart spoke with General Manager Jeff Luhnow about how the rotation was going to stack up, and his answer didn’t exactly clear anything up.

The Astros have also signed Jerome Williams, who could be used either as a rotation member or as a long reliever. The club will also look at Number One draft pick Mark Appel out of Stanford as he has been invited to Spring Training.

After spending eight years with the Texas Rangers (the last two of which he was a swingman), Feldman spent last season with the Cubs before being traded to the Orioles. Overall, he posted a 12-12 record with a 3.86 ERA over 181.2 innings in his first full season as a starter in three years. He signed a three-year, $30 million contract with Houston in the off season.
