YearComment
2013 Jose Valdez can top 95 mph semi-regularly, but the Astros let him go, and there was so little demand for him that they were able to bring him back on a minor-league deal.
2012 Since moving to the bullpen in 2007, Jose Valdez has shown promising strikeout rates in the minors, but he's been so riddled with injuries in his career he's rarely at his best. The Astros see the potential and kept him on the 40-man roster despite his age and struggles.
2010 Valdez had been in the Yankees organization since 2002, but injuries kept him in A-ball until 2008. He throws in the low 90s with deception, but that's a double-edged word, as the deception is created by miserable mechanics, also the cause of the aforementioned injuries. After a terrific showing in the Dominican Winter League (including two walks in 21 innings) the Astros signed him to a free-agent contract and will give him a 40-man roster spot and a shot at the back of their bullpen.
