Report: Astros reach agreement with Jose Altuve on five-year extension

Jose Altuve

Jose Altuve will be staying with the Houston Astros for a while.

According to reports, the Astros are in agreement on a five-year extension with Altuve that will kick in once his current deal ends after 2019.

Altuve was already a superstar, but he firmly established himself as the heart and soul of the Astros with a series of remarkable postseason performances. He had been on a ridiculously team-friendly contract that covered five years for just $18.5 million. This should compensate him more fairly — and he’ll still only be 29 when it kicks in, making it a win-win proposition for team and player.
