Sources: Astros improve outfield, approve 2-year deal with Michael Brantley

Outfitter Michael Brantley joined a two-year contract of $ 32 million with Houston on Monday. Sources familiar with the deal told Yahoo Sports, which gave its steady left handflaps to the top of an Astros series already considered to be one of the most dangerous in the American league. Brantley's versatility and bat-to-ball ability appealed greatly to Astros, who has a team full of these types and the plan is that he will rotate among the left-hand field, first base and designated hitter. 31-year-old Brantley resurrected his career in 2017 after missing almost the entire previous season with a shoulder injury and followed up with a second consecutive All-Star Game appearance. Brantley is a clear antidote that stays in only 10.7 percent of his debut after debut in 2009 and plays an important role in three post-season teams. Originally played the player later in the 2008 deal that sent CC Sabathia from Cleveland to Milwaukee, Brantley flourished from a contact-oriented hit to a threat of consistent gap power. He completed a .309 batting medium last season with a .364 on-base percent and .468 slugging percent, and while his 17 home team and 76 RBIs do not scream classical corner outfielder, Brantley's sustainability makes for what thunder his bats can miss 13 PHOTOS MLB Players Changing Teams Over The 2018-19 Off Season View Gallery
