Former UVa baseball stars Nick Howard and Derek Fisher have officially signed with their Major League Baseball teams.
Fisher signed with the Astros Tuesday.
Houston selected Fisher with the 37th pick in the 2014 MLB First Year Players Draft in early June.
The 20-year old outfielder reportedly signed a deal worth over $1.5 million.
Batting in the five-spot, Fisher posted a .281 average with 30 doubles, 12 triples, 17 homers, 127 RBI, and 17 steals in 601 at-bats during his three years at UVa.
Howard agreed to a $1.9 million dollar bonus.
The 21-year old right-handed pitcher saw 31 games for the Cavaliers this season.
He posted a 1.91 ERA and an ACC-record 20 saves, with just 14 walks, and 60 strikeouts in over 37 innings this season.
