Astros Sign Mike Hampton

WEDNESDAY: The Astros are having a press conference for Hampton in about 25 minutes, implying that he passed his physical.

TUESDAY: Dave O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution says Hampton turned down a slightly higher offer from the Braves to be closer to his children, who are in Arizona.

MONDAY, 3:31pm: Ken Rosenthal says it's a one-year, $2MM deal with another $2MM in appearance-based incentives.  Hard to find fault in that.

2:44pm: According to FOX 26 Sports in Houston, the Astros signed pitcher Mike Hampton today.  He needs to complete a physical to make it official.  Hampton pitched for the Astros from 1994-99 before he was traded to the Mets.

Hampton sought a one-year deal with no option, so I imagine that's what the Astros offered.
