The Houston Astros signed outfielder Trevor Crowe and pitcher Sergio Escalona to minor league deals on Tuesday.

Both players have Major League experience, but haven’t appeared in the big leagues since 2011.

The 29-year-old Crowe spent the last three seasons with the Cleveland Indians, accumulating a .245 avg., with three homers, 55 RBI’s, and 29 stolen bases. In 2010, Crowe had most most extensive playing time, accumulating 442 at-bats, hitting a .251, with two homers, 36 RBI’s, and 20 stolen bases.

Crowe, a first-round pick of the Indians back in 2005, who can play all three outfield positions, hit a .281 at three minor league venues last year, after hitting a .214 in 48 Major League at-bats in his last stint with the Indians in 2011.

Escalona, a 28-year old lefty, appeared in 49 games for the Astros in 2011, all in relief, going 2-1, with a 2.93 era.

Escalona missed all of last year, after undergoing Tommy John surgery just prior to the start of last season.
