The Houston Astros are reportedly contemplating a serious commerce this offseason that may closely have an effect on the way forward for their infield.
According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the Astros are procuring All-Star shortstop Carlos Correa. The Astros have been dangling Correa in commerce discussions as a result of they consider it is unlikely he’ll signal a cope with the group earlier than he reaches free company on the finish of the 2021 season.
The 26-year-old has spent his whole profession with the Astros, serving to the group win the World Collection in 2017. Final season, Correa averaged .264 on the plate with 25 RBI and 5 house runs. He was much more spectacular within the postseason, batting .362 with 17 RBI and 6 house runs in 47 plate appearances.
Correa is not the one participant who may depart the Astros group this offseason. Outfielder George Springer is being pursued by quite a few groups in free company, and it is unlikely that he returns to the group.
Houston is coming off a loss to the Tampa Bay Rays within the American League Championship Collection and can hope to contend once more in 2021. Nonetheless, that may be troublesome to do with out the likes of Correa and Springer, who’ve been leaders on the plate and within the area for the Astros since being drafted.
