HOUSTON (AP) — Shortstop Carlos Correa and the Houston Astros have settled their arbitration case, reaching a deal on a one-year contract for $11.7 million. Correa had asked for $12.5 million and the Astros had offered $9.75 million. The 26-year-old All-Star had an $8 million salary that became a prorated $2.96 million during the pandemic-shortened season. Correa hit .264 with five home runs and 25 RBIs in 58 games last year, then excelled in the postseason. He hit .362 with six homers and 17 RBIs in 13 playoff games as Houston came within one win of reaching the World Series. Correa led major league shortstops with a .995 fielding percentage.
