Multiple sources are reporting that former LSU pitcher Will Harris is leaving the Houston Astros for a three-year, $24 million dollar deal with the Washington Nationals.

Harris, a native of Slidell, La., played at LSU from 2003-2006 and was selected by the Colorado Rockies in 2006 draft. He spent the last four years with the Astros. Per ESPN:

Harris had a 1.50 ERA and 62 strikeouts in 60 innings for the Astros during the regular season. He also had 26 holds and four saves as the Astros led the majors with 107 wins. He made 12 appearances during the postseason, posting an 0.93 ERA while striking out 11 in 9? innings.

"I felt like the whole process was kind of trending toward the Nationals maybe from the beginning," Harris told "They seemed to be the most bullish on me and made me a priority from the beginning. ... They were on my really, really short list of places I wanted to go, and to have that kind of matchup, I think, was great for everybody."

A lot of astros fans didn’t appreciate Harris. I’m happy he’s getting paid.

Idiot ones maybe. He contributed a ton during the world series win a few years back.
