The Houston Astros signed right-handed reliever Hector Neris to a two-year contract on Tuesday.

Neris is expected to serve as a replacement for right-hander Kendall Graveman, who recently signed a three-year contract with the Chicago White Sox.

He sports a 21-29 record with a 3.42 ERA and 84 saves in eight seasons, all with the Phillies. He has made 405 career appearances, all in relief.
