Astros leaving no stone unturned, looking into Headley
The Astros are reportedly “kicking the tires” on free agent third baseman Chase Headley, according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe.
Along with Headley, the Astros have also been looking into a potential reunion with shorstop Jed Lowrie, as reported by MLB.com’s Brian McTaggart. Houston, of course, has also been tied to free agent closer David Robertston and made a strong push to sign reliever Andrew Miller, before Miller elected to sign with the Yankees last week.
It’s clear that the Astros are more than willing to spend this offseason, but it remains to be seen whether or not they will ultimately land any of their main targets.
