ESPN.com is reporting that the Astros are closing in on a deal with Pedro Feliz. Feliz, who had his $5.5M club option for 2010 turned down by Philadelphia, will make $4.5M in 2010, according to Alyson Footer of MLB.com.
Feliz hit .266 last season with the Phillies, but struggled in the postseason with a .167 batting average.

Feliz, 34, will hopefully provide protection for the middle of the Astros order.
