    • Biagini signed a one-year contract with the Astros on Monday, avoiding arbitration, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. Biagini posted a 4.59 ERA and 1.50 WHIP with a 60:26 K:BB over 64.2 innings in 2019. He's expected to slot in near the middle of Houston's bullpen heading into the 2020 campaign.

    • Biagini won't be on the Astros' ALDS roster, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. Biagini recorded an unremarkable 4.59 ERA in 64.2 innings with the Blue Jays and Astros this season. He'll continue throwing throughout the ALDS and could be a factor in the ALCS, should Houston advance.

    • Biagini allowed one hit and struck out one over two scoreless innings, picking up a hold in a 7-4 win over the Blue Jays on Friday. Biagini, a former Blue Jay, has been slow to adjust to the Astros' analytically advanced system since he was acquired at the trade deadline. Prior to Friday's appearance, he allowed 14 hits and walked five over 8.2 innings. Since his arrival, the Astros have asked him to eschew his sinker-driven pitching plan for one that throws more four-seam fastballs and his high-spin-rate curve, according to Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle. "I feel like there is some definite reason to use it more than I have been," Biagini said. "Especially trying to throw it hard and kind of trust the pitch instead of just trying to place it different places like I had been doing more of earlier this season. I think that could be good because I think it adds a wrinkle to what I could offer."

    • Biagini was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock prior to Thursday's game against the Tigers, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. Ryan Pressly (arthroscopic knee surgery) was placed on the 10-day injured list, so Houston summoned Biagini to take the vacant spot in the bullpen. He has a 3.63 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 55 strikeouts in 57 MLB innings this season.

    • Biagini was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock following Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the White Sox, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. Biagini allowed one run over three inning during the nightcap after scheduled starter Gerrit Cole (hamstring) was scratched, and he'll move to the minors in favor of a fresh arm. The 29-year-old has a 2.64 ERA and 1.47 WHIP over 17 innings since the All-Star break, so he figures to make a fairly quick return to the majors.
