The Astros have checked-in on Hanley Ramirez
Ken Rosenthal reports that the Astros have checked in on free agent Hanley Ramirez
I know they’re the 2017 World Series champs and everything, but I have to think that (a) the Astros aren’t yet willing to spend big for a free agent like this; and (b) Ramirez may be looking for more of a win-now situation. Also worth noting that Houston has a lot of prospects who would be blocked if Ramirez was on the team.
Of course, no one really though Robinson Cano would go to the Mariners until he did last year, so who knows?
