Astros Notes: Valverde, Lo Duca

A few Astros notes from Brian McTaggart of the Houston Chronicle.

  • The Astros discussed an extension with closer Jose Valverde, but ultimately signed him for one year and $8MM.  Valverde is eligible for free agency after the ’09 season.
  • The Astros are in negotiations with Paul Lo Duca.  He could join the mix on a minor league deal.
