Houston, extended contract with ‘AL’s most innings’ ace? “There was no negotiation! but… ”
Reporter Yoon-Jun Ko = ‘World Series Champion’ Houston Astros recently signed a 5-year contract extension with Christian Javier. As a result, rumors of an extended contract with ace Framber Valdez are naturally flowing out.
After the World Series ended, Houston broke up with general manager James Click, who had a feud with owner Jim Crane, and is with new general manager Dana Brown. 안전놀이터
Brown is keeping an eye on contract extensions with existing players upon joining Houston, and has actually agreed to a multi-year contract with Javier. As a result, a number of players such as Kyle Tucker and Alex Bregman were listed as contract candidates, and Valdes was the same.
In addition, reporter Hector Gomez of ‘z101’ reported on the 14th (Korean time), “According to sources, Valdez will be able to sign an extension contract until the opening match.”
Valdez emerged as Houston’s ace last year with a record of 17 wins, 6 losses, ERA of 2.81 and 194 strikeouts. As the report came out, Houston fans couldn’t hide their joy.
However, Valdez’s agent said in an interview with the ‘Houston Chronicle’, “This is 100% false information. We didn’t even talk to Captain Brown. All the guesses are wrong,” he jumped up.
However, the agent said, “Of course, this does not mean that an extension contract is impossible. Valdez loves Houston. He said, “Conversation is the first thing to do to extend the contract.”
