Carlos Correa’s time with the Houston Astros just might come to an end before to the start of next season.

That discussion was brought up from Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic who said the team is “floating” their All-Star shortstop in trade talks since it is “unlikely they will sign him before he reaches free agency at the end of the season.”

He’s not the only big name player that could be leaving the team this year as MLB.com’s Brian McTaggart noted that George Springer, the Astros’ biggest free agent this offseason, is unlikely to return because of what he can command on the market and “some upgrades (Houston will) need to make in their pitching staff.”

Correa does have injury concerns, as he missed a total of 192 games in three seasons from 2017 to 2019, but he looked fully healthy in 2020, especially in the postseason when he hit .362/.455/.766 with six homers in 13 games.
