HOUSTON -- Chad Qualls is returning to the Houston Astros, his original team.

The right-handed reliever agreed to a two-year contract Saturday with a team option for 2016.

Qualls went 5-2 with a 2.61 ERA in 66 games for the Miami Marlins last season and has made at least 50 appearances in nine straight seasons. He has pitched for eight clubs in his big league career, going 45-37 with 51 saves and a 3.79 ERA in 663 appearances.

Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow says improving the bullpen is a major priority this off-season and bringing Qualls back to Houston "is a big step in that direction."
