Astros sign P Erik Stiller


May 18: P Matt Nevarez placed on 7-Day DL with an unspecified injury
May 18: P Erik Stiller assigned to Corpus from Houston

This would lead me to believe that the Astros had signed pitcher Erik Stiller, who has pitched the last two seasons for Cleveland's Double-A team in Akron. is reporting that the Indians had released Stiller five days ago. Stiller was 1-0 in eight appearances for the Aeros, striking out 12 and walking three. He had a 3.86 ERA and an even 1.00 WHIP.

He has a career 3.58 ERA / 1.17 WHIP in 291.2IP, with a 2.79 K:BB ratio.
