MILWAUKEE -- Former Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Wade Miley, who surprised fans and pundits alike with an excellent 2018 campaign, has signed a one-year deal with the Houston Astros, The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal reports.

Miley has passed his physical and will be introduced at a news conference in Houston Friday, Rosenthal said on Twitter.

The 32-year-old left-hander had arguably the best season of his career with the Brewers in 2018, posting a career-high 2.57 ERA.

Miley was a free agent going into the 2019 season, and Journal Sentinel writer Tom Haudricourt reported as recently as Thursday morning that the Brewers were not showing interest ire-signing him:

The Brewers will definitely need starting rotation help headed into 2019, with Jhoulys Chacin, Chase Anderson, Zach Davies, Brandon Woodruff, and the still-injured Jimmy Nelson now projected to start.
