Astros: Free agent options to add left-handed relief to bullpen

With Will Harris, Joe Smith and Hector Rondon all hitting free agency, the Astros bullpen is in need of reinforcements before next season. Since they’ll need one or two arms from outside the organization, this could be an opportune time to add a left-hander, which they lacked for most of this past season.

The Astros front office might disagree with me, and in fact has often stated its view that having a left-hander isn’t all that important. But we saw how much difficulty the Astros had with left-handed slugger Juan Soto in the World Series.
