The Astros have signed outfielder Jose Siri to a minor league contract, Robert Murray of FanSided tweets. Siri’s deal includes an invitation to major league spring training.
Before joining the Astros, the 25-year-old Siri had already been with three organizations – the Reds, Mariners and Giants. Siri was a well-regarded prospect in his younger days, but he hasn’t appeared in the majors yet. In his most recent minor league action, Siri batted .237/.300/.357 with 11 home runs and 26 stolen bases over 517 plate appearances between the Reds’ Double-A and Triple-A affiliates in 2019. The Reds then lost Siri on waivers to the Mariners, who lost him to the Giants last March. The Giants outrighted Siri in July.
Although he has no MLB track record to speak of, Siri could push for a roster spot in Houston, whose outfield will inevitably deal with major changes this offseason. George Springer, Michael Brantley and Josh Reddick are free agents, leaving the Astros with Kyle Tucker as their lone regular outfielder who’s a lock to return in 2021.
This will bring a World Series to the Astros lol
.921 OPS in AAA and so far, 1.324 OPS with major league club. Oh ya…lol.
Hey Siri who’s Jose?
That’s gold baby!!!
That’s old baby
He was once a Siri-ous prospect…..but now he’s been passed around so much, that people forgot which team he was on this week.
Zero risk move, smart depth option for the Stros.
Hey Siri, go hit me a homer. Siriously.
Sure. Had 16 in AAA with an OPS of .921. Already has 4 HR in 25 AB’s with the big club.
His wife’s name is Alexa
Siri sign with the Reds
George hubschman, roto imbeciles
I’m just hoping that over time Jose Siri doesn’t become known as a poor man’s Trayvon Robinson. One of Crenshaw High’s finest. Same high school as Darwin Cook, Willie Crawford, Darryl Strawberry, Akbar Gbaja-Biamila, Kevin Ollie, and Ellis Valentine.
Ok Google, sign an outfielder
The next Drew Stubbs lol
I remember when Reds fans were ready to induct him into the HoF after his season in A ball and 39 game hitting streak.
