Brantley to Astros, per reports

MLB Rumors: Michael Brantley and the Houston Astros have agreed to terms on a one year deal to have Brantley return to Houston, per reports. Brantley is reportedly getting $12 million, plus another $4 million in potential incentives, which, if earned, would get him the $16 million per year he made under his last deal with Houston.

Brantley, 36, missed the second half of the 2022 season due to a shoulder injury which ultimately required season-ending surgery to address. Brantley is largely limited at this point in his career to left field and designated hitter, and is probably best suited to DH.
