Astros Make Multi-Year Offer to OF Michael Conforto

Pat Ragazzo of Sports Illustrated reported that the Houston Astros had made an offer to free agent outfielder Michael Conforto. The deal is reportedly for two years and worth $30 million. We have not seen Conforto on the field since his 2021 season with the New York Mets. He had shoulder surgery in April, which deterred the Mets from resigning him and other teams from making offers during free agency this past offseason. The one wrinkle in signing Conforto is he is not eligible for the postseason since he did not sign before the August 31 deadline.
