Astros Sign Doug Brocail

According to a press release, the Astros signed Doug Brocail to a one-year deal today.  He'll get $2.5MM plus incentives in '09 and there's a club option for $2.85MM plus incentives for '10 with a $250K buyout.  The Astros declined Brocail's $3.25MM '09 option in October and did not offer him arbitration yesterday.

Brocail, 41, posted a 3.93 ERA in 68.2 innings this year.  His strikeout rate was up significantly from '07.  He struggled in July and August, but pitched well in September.
