MLB Rumors: St. Louis Cardinals Catcher Linked to Houston Astros

The Houston Astros are looking to add another catcher to their roster before the start of the season, as it is a position that could use a boost. Due to this, they are reportedly one of the clubs making a push to 
sign Ivan Herrera.

The Cardinals are reportedly listening to offers for Herrera. This is in response to them signing Willson Contreras to a long-term deal. As a result, Herrera has become expendable and several teams will now be looking to take a chance on the young catcher. Now we have confirmation that the Astros are one of them.

We will need to wait and see if the Astros end up bringing him in from here. On paper, there is a clear match here, as he would stand a good chance of being their starter.
