Player Notes
The Astros and Jason Castro haven't discussed a contract extension yet this offseason, according to Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle.

Advice: Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said the club is open to extensions, but Castro hasn't been one of those engaged to this point. Drellich notes that the team did extend an offer to Castro last winter, with Castro declining the proposal. The 27-year-old may be more inclined to consider a deal this time around after struggling to a .222/.286/.366 line this past season. Castro's name has also appeared in some trade rumors this hot stove season.

Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com reports that the White Sox are a "team to watch" in a potential Jason Castro trade.

Advice: Cotillo notes that Chicago general manager Rick Hahn "has been enamored with Castro for a while." Tyler Flowers hit 15 homers for the White Sox this season, but he's a career .218/.287/.382 batter and Castro, at least offensively, would be a notable upgrade. The Astros are reportedly willing to listen to offers for Castro following the acquisition of Hank Conger.
