With Spring Training Approaching, Here are the Positions where the Astros Must Improve the Roster.
But there is still work to be done in the meantime. Certain positions will need to be addressed, or at least clarified, before pitchers and catchers report in February. If Houston Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow planned to address these needs in free agency, then this will be a more difficult task as two potential targets in free agency, Ian Kennedy and Chris Davis, have recently signed brand new contracts with the Kansas City Royals and Baltimore Orioles respectively. However, there are also plenty of internal options that the team could turn to clear up some of their concerns.
The question is whether the team will stand pat or does the front office have a few tricks up their sleeves?
