Astros Could Consider Trading Alex Bregman This Offseason

Nov 28, 2023 8:22 AM

Those around baseball believe the Houston Astros are listening to trade offers for Alex Bregman, who will be a free agent after the 2024 season.

"I think that there is a chance that he may not even be playing in Houston this year," MLB Network Radio's Jim Duquette said of Bregman. "... There are teams out there that would definitely have interest if [the Astros] are making him available. And you kind of quietly hear his name -- if they are not shopping him, I think they are listening."

Andy Martino of SNY corroborated Duquette's report.

The Astros have a lot of decisions to make in the coming months. Jose Altuve will be a free agent following next season, while Framber Valdez and Kyle Tucker are on track to hit the open market in 2025.
