Houston Astros Have Discussed Contract Extension With Star Outfielder

Houston Astros general manager Dana Brown said on Tuesday that the team has had conversations with Kyle Tucker regarding a potential contract extension.

Brown noted that the Astros have had some talks with Tucker in advance of this month's potential arbitration hearing.

There's no word yet on where the two sides stand in reaching a deal.

Regardless, Tucker has truly blossomed into one of the best outfielders in all of baseball over the last few seasons, reaching the 30-home-run mark in each of the last two seasons.

Since 2020, the twenty-six-year-old holds a .274/.341/.516 triple-slash line, with 69 home runs, 241 RBIs, 47 stolen bases and 187 runs scored over 348 games played.
