MLB Rumors: Astros In Extension Talks With TWO MORE Star Players

The Houston Astros are in the midst of negotiations aimed at securing Kyle Tucker with a contract extension, right after the team just locked up Jose Altuve for the long-term.

General Manager Dana Brown has expressed a strong desire to finalize extension deals for both Tucker and All-Star left-hander Framber Valdez.

Brown's approach is to ensure these key players are locked in before the season progresses, emphasizing the importance of having a stable roster that can focus solely on performance on the field.

Although Brown did not set a strict deadline, there's a clear preference to conclude these discussions promptly, underscoring the urgency of these negotiations for the Astros' future planning​.

In a notable development during the offseason, Kyle Tucker declined a substantial $200 million extension offer from the Astros.

This decision has set the stage for further negotiations, with Tucker potentially seeking a more lucrative deal in recognition of his significant contributions to the team.

The Astros' management, led by GM Dana Brown, remains optimistic about retaining Tucker for the long term, suggesting that the organization values his role and is willing to invest accordingly to ensure his continued presence on the team​. Photo Credit:  Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports
