Ivan Rodriguez has reportedly agreed to a one-year contract worth $1.5 million with the Houston Astros.

Rodriguez has turned up his play during the World Baseball Classic in an effort to secure a free agent deal by the start of spring training.

Rodriguez hit .276 with seven home runs and 35 runs batted in last season for the Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees after being traded for Kyle Farnsworth.
