    Astros will face a 40-man crunch. In order to protect guys like Forrest Whitley, Freudis Nova, and others, they’ll need to move some guys.

    They also need OF help. Cincinnati has the extra 40-man spots, so in exchange for those spots, they take on some high-upside arms.

      The Astros currently have 45 on the roster but 5 coming off for FA and at least two on the IL for the majority of next season…so that makes 38 plus several non tender and dfa candidates…safely assume 35 on the roster…so 5 spots to add Whitley and Nova and think Jairo Solis then you gotta assume Click makes trades for the OF or he goes to a depressed FA market…I do think Toro and possibly Perez gets moved due to Raley’s option likely being exercised but there are better options out there than Goodwin…think Tampa Bay with their excess in OF’ers and Clicks connections there….possibly bringing in Phillips, Renfroe or Margot.

        According to RosterResource, after removing all impending free agents, Houston still has 43 guys on the 40-man roster. Meaning, they’ll need to need to clear 3 just to get down to 40. So to get their Rule 5 protections in, they need to clear about 8 spots, all the while making moves to improve the team.

        Houston will be better off trying to trade players and getting value as opposed to just cutting or non-tendering decent players.

          Those 3 extra are restricted players that absolutely will be waived,dfa’d or traded (Kent Emmanuel and Francis Martes off the top of my head) likely other active players to be waived or dfa’d (Garneau, De Jong, Mayfield, Diaz, Osuna, and Devenski) not countng that Verlander and Josh James will be on the IL for most if not all next year allowing others to take their roster spot while on the IL…so that leads again to 35 active spots…like I said Toro will most likely be shopped due to him being blocked at 3rd,2nd and 1st base. Click will I’m sure at the trade market first and see what he can get for Toro with Perez and likely Sneed as fillers…that is why I think a trade involving Goodwin doesnt work.

            You listed 6 guys. It’ll open up a few spots, but leaves them with few options if they want to sign free agents.

            Verlander’s and James’ IL spots still count against the 40-man roster until after Spring Training, when they can be added back onto the 45-day IL (or whatever the terms will be).

            Also, I don’t see them DFA’ing Roberto Osuna. With the payroll constraints they currently have, they’ll need to save money where they can. Osuna still brings value to Houston.

    Houston will not pay 10 million a year or more for an injured closer especially if you think Houston will have “payroll constraints” absolutely bogus (he has only thrown from flat ground since his injury and hasnt progressed from what has been reported)

    if you think payroll constraints because of pandemic then every team will have payroll constraints…if you think payroll constraints in general then no you are wrong…this roster is up there as the most expensive in all of baseball and Crane has stated he will be aggressive to keep the window open
