Astros' Lance McCullers: Will be restricted in 2016
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

McCullers will be placed under restrictions with the intention to keep him ready for the playoffs, Astros GM Jeff Luhnow said on MLB Network Radio.

The actual level of restriction was unspecified, but it can be estimated by looking at McCullers' previous workload. After two straight seasons spent throwing approximately 100 innings in the minors, the 22-year-old threw a career-high 157.2 innings between the majors and Double-A. That mark also included a 19-day stint at Corpus Christi in the middle of his tenure at Houston in which he only started one game, the plan being to give him some time to rest. With that 157.2 inning mark in mind, it seems reasonable to think McCullers won't be restricted too much below the 200-inning mark. This definitely hurts his upside, but probably not in a way that a solid backup can't fix for a few weeks.

Astros' Doug Fister: Signs deal worth $7 million Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Fister's deal with the Astros is for $7 million, MLB.com's Brian McTaggart reports.

The deal also includes potential for $5 million more in performance bonuses related to innings pitched. He will presumably begin the year as the No. 5 starter, but his lack of strikeouts gives him a very small margin for error. Fister managed a 2.41 ERA and 1.08 WHIP back in 2014, but he also offered just 98 strikeouts in 164 innings, so he wasn't nearly as useful as those ratios indicate, and it seems far-fetched to expect another sub-3.00 ERA in 2016.

Astros' Danny Worth: Signs with Astros
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Danny Worth signed a minor league contract with the Houston Astros that includes an invite to spring training, Jose de Jesus Ortiz of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Worth spent the 2015 season in the Diamondbacks' organization, sporting an impressive .314/.394/.469 slash line in 106 games with the Triple-A club. The 30-year-old has some major league experience, but he figures to serve as organizational infield depth with Houston.
