The Houston Astros would like to add an ace-caliber pitcher via trade this offseason, but they won't include Alex Bregman as part of a package.

Astros executives are telling teams that there's "no chance" Bregman will be dealt.

He is controllable through 2022 after being selected second overall in 2015.

The 22-year-old hit .264/.313/.478 in 217 plate appearances this past season.
