Astros agree to deal with reliever Crain

HOUSTON (AP) - All-Star free-agent reliever Jesse Crain has agreed to a one-year deal with the Houston Astros.

Financial terms were not released.

Crain made the All-Star team last season with a 0.74 ERA in 37 appearances for the White Sox. He had a streak of 29 straight appearances without allowing a run from April 17 to June 22. Crain was traded to Tampa Bay on July 29, but didn't appear in a game for the Rays because of a right shoulder strain.

Houston general manager Jeff Luhnow calls Crain a ''proven reliever'' who will ''help us win games in 2014.'' Houston's bullpen was one of the biggest problems last season on a team that lost a franchise-record 111 games and had the worst record in the majors.
