SS - HOU
Astros SS Carlos Correa says he isn't currently having extension talks with the team.
GM James Click said earlier this month that the two sides were having discussions, but Correa says the two sides haven't had any since avoiding arbitration on a one-year pact. He also noted that he didn't want things to linger into the season. Correa is a free agent at the end of the year.
Astros GM James Click says the Astros and SS Carlos Correa are discussing a long-term contract extension.
Correa and the Astros recently avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $11.7 million deal. However, it sounds as if the two sides are interested in getting a deal done before Correa reaches free agency after the 2021 season. The 26-year-old had a down year last summer but is fully expected to receive a huge contract wherever he winds up.
