Astros interested in Robertson
The Astros are looking to upgrade the bullpen this Winter and David Robertson may be their man.
According to the New York Post, the Astros have talked with Robertson’s agent, Scott Leventhal.
While Robertson is one of the top closers on the market, it remains to be seen how much the Astros would be willing to pay.
The right-hander is reportedly looking for a contract around four years and $13 million per year.
Robertson converted 39 of 44 saves in 2014 and posted a 3.08 ERA in 64 1/3 innings.
The Yankees did offer Robertson a one-year $15.3 million qualifying offer earlier this off-season so if the Astros did sign him they would have to relinquish a draft pick.
