The Houston Astros have agreed to sign Michael Brantley to a two-year, $32 million deal.

Brantley gives the Astros a left-handed bat in the middle of their lineup.

Brantley hit .309 with 17 homers and 76 RBIs in 2018 after missing most of 2016 and 2017 with injuries.

The Cleveland Indians acquired Brantley in 2008 as part of the CC Sabathia deal.
