Free-agent RP Jose Veras (Tigers) is interested in returning to the Houston Astros this winter. Veras saved 19 games for Houston last year before being traded to the Detroit Tigers. "It feels like family there," Veras said. "It's a young team and they're hungry to win. I feel part of the team. It doesn't matter to me if we won or lose. When you play as a team and everybody cares, that's the best part for me. I do my job to make the team excited we won the game." The Astros are also talking to free-agent RPs Jesse Crain (Rays) and Chad Gaudin (Giants).
