Astros re-signed RHP Jose Valdez to a minor league contract.

He also gets a spring training invite. Valdez, 29, made 13 relief appearances with the Astros this season and compiled a 4.95 ERA and 59/12 K/BB ratio over 43 2/3 innings at the Triple-A level. He's likely to function as organizational depth in 2013.
