The Astros made two very important editions to their roster today. They signed relievers Pat Neshek and Luke Gregerson. The Astros needed bullpen help desperately. The Astros bullpen hasn't finished last in both of the past two years. Neshek and Gregerson should help them out a lot.
Luke Gregerson pitched for the Athletics last year and earned a 1.7 WAR. He has now signed with the Astros for the next three years earning a total of at least $18.5 million. Gregerson will most likely be the Astros closer for 2015, a large improvement over 36 year old Chad Qualls.
