Nine-year veteran Scott Feldman has agreed to a three-year, $30 million deal with the Astros, pending a physical, according to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal.

Feldman, who is 6-foot-7, was 12-12 with a 3.86 ERA in 30 starts last season for the Cubs and Orioles. Before that, he pitched eight seasons for the Rangers, but knee problems limited him to only 11 appearances in 2011. He is 51-56 with a 4.62 ERA in 234 appearances, including 131 starts.

The Astros have had the worst record in baseball each of the last three seasons, and their pitching staff had a league-worst 4.79 ERA last season.

But they did acquire outfielder Dexter Fowler in a trade earlier this week.
