Could the Astros Sign Craig Kimbrel? A Hypothetical Contract Pitch

Could the Astros Sign Craig Kimbrel? A Hypothetical Contract Pitch

With the All-Star closer still on the market, should the Astros consider making an unusual offer? The Astros were never really major players for either of the big names on the free agent market this past winter, which made sense. They’re are one of the few teams in the league that could actually say there wasn’t a place in the infield for Manny Machado where he would be a clear improvement over their current options, thanks to Carlos Correa, Alex Bregman, and Jose Altuve.

In two games Jake Marisnick hit .400 with a home run to lead off the Spring Training season against Max Scherzer. In his one...
