Astros re-sign Edgar Gonzalez, Jose Valdez

Optioned off of the 40-man roster last week, the Astros have re-signed pitchers Jose Valdez and Edgar Gonzalez to minor-league deals with an invite to Spring Training.

Valdez, who will be 30 in January, threw 12IP for the Astros in 2012, with 12H/3ER, 10K:8BB for a 2.25 ERA/1.67 WHIP. He spent most of his time at OKC, where he threw 43.2IP, with 53H/24ER, 59K:12BB.

Edgar Gonzalez, who will also be 30 on Opening Day 2013, was somewhat of a surprise for the Astros in 2012. In six starts for Houston, he threw 25IP, 23H/14ER, 18K:8BB, for a 5.04 ERA/1.23 WHIP. Though he never made it out of the 6th inning, He posted Game Scores over 50 (which is average, which the Astros weren't) in four of the six starts.
