HOUSTON, TX - The Houston Astros have tendered 2018 Major League contracts to all but one of their unsigned 40-man roster players, as right-handed pitcher Mike Fiers was not tendered a contract. Tonight was the deadline for all Major League clubs to tender contracts to players on their 40-man rosters. The announcement was made by Astros General Manager Jeff Luhnow.

Fiers becomes a free agent, free to sign with other Major League clubs.

The Astros now have eight arbitration eligible players remaining on their 40-man roster in catcher Evan Gattis, right-handed pitcher Ken Giles, left-handed pitcher Dallas Keuchel, outfielder Jake Marisnick, right-handed pitcher Lance McCullers Jr., right-handed pitcher Collin McHugh, right-handed pitcher Brad Peacock and outfielder George Springer.

With the removal of Fiers, the Astros 40-man roster now stands at 38 players.
