Astros avoid arbitration with Gattis, agree to 1-year deal
The Houston Astros have avoided an arbitration hearing with Evan Gattis by agreeing to terms on a one-year contract. General Manager Jeff Luhnow announced that the deal includes a club option for 2017. Financial terms were not disclosed. </p> </p> </p> Reportedly, the deal is worth $3.3 million for the 2016 season with an option on the 2017 season. </p> </p> As a result of this deal, all of the Astros arbitration-eligible players are now signed. Only catcher Jason Castro went to an arbitration hearing with the team and will make $5 million in 2016, the club figure, as the team won the arbitration case. </p> </p> In 2015, which was Gattis' first season playing for Houston, he reached career highs in home runs (27), RBI (88) and triples (11) finishing tied for third in the AL in the latter. He also appeared in a career-high 153 games, with 136 starts as the designated hitter. </p> </p> Astros pitchers and catchers report to spring training on Thursday, with position players joining them for full workouts on Feb. 23. </p>
