Carlos Correa returns to the Astros suddenly with a new life

For a while, it looked like Carlos Correa would leave the Astros as a free agent but Houston has now returned to discussions with the star.

The Astros not giving up on keeping Carlos Correa in Houston.

Despite serious interest from potential and the shortstop reported selling his house, Houston is still not out of the race. They just reopened discussions with shortstop, per Fox 26’s Mark Berman.

“Our team has reached out to his agent. We’re in discussions,” owner Jim Crane told Berman this week.

On the one hand, it proves there are teams out there trying to give Correa that long-term deal. However, a figure below $300 million could be a good sign for the Astros.

If Correa’s ultimate goal is to hit that milestone but another team doesn’t accept an offer of that caliber, he could be persuaded to re-sign with Houston and try again for his big payday later.
