Bass pitched in the major leagues from 2008-2010 and made 101 appearances with the Minnesota Twins, Baltimore Orioles and Pittsburgh Pirates. He has a career ERA of 5.16.

The 30-year-old right-hander has made just four career starts but after pitching as a starter in Korea, he will work as one for the Astros. He has been assigned to Triple-A Oklahoma City and will make his debut on Wednesday.

At this point, Bass will serve as organizational depth, but he could be one of the first options, if a starter goes down with an injury.
