Astros To Sign Alberto Arias

The Houston Astros have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with right-handed reliever Alberto Arias, tweets Zachary Levine of the Houston Chronicle.  The 27-year-old will earn just under $440K.

The hurler missed the entire 2010 season after undergoing surgery on his right shoulder surgery, but GM Ed Wade and manager Brad Mills intend to give him every opportunity to earn an Opening Day roster spot in the bullpen, writes Stephen Goff of Examiner.com.  Making the squad could prove to be more difficult than once thought as Goff writes that Arias told the team that he felt discomfort in his throwing shoulder yesterday.

Arias made 42 appearances for the Astros in 2009, posting an ERA of 3.35 with 7.7 K/9 and 3.7 BB/9.
