Astros have talked about an extension with Jason Castro.

It seems that both sides are set on what they want in this deal. The Astros recently won the arbitration hearing with Jason Castro after being $250,000 apart from one another. The deal is for one-year at $5 million. Castro is a free-agent after the 2016 season and so far the talks of a two-year deal and a three-year deal with an option have not gone anywhere. The Astros are trying to lock-up their 28 year-old pitcher/catcher duo this off-season, but so far nothing is imminent. The defense is their, but Castro doesn't do anything crazy in terms of offense.
