HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston Astros have agreed to one-year contracts with right-hander Lance McCullers Jr. and infielder Aledmys Díaz to avoid salary arbitration, but couldn’t come to terms with star shortstop Carlos Correa. Houston also finalized a $12.5 million, two-year deal with reliever Pedro Báez that includes a club option and could be worth $19.5 million for three seasons. Last season he was 0-0 with a 3.18 ERA and two saves in 18 appearances for the Dodgers. The Astros and Correa exchanged arbitration figures, with Correa asking for $12.5 million in 2021 and Houston offering $9.75 million.
