Keep the train rolling: Astros could be back for more titles

HOUSTON (AP) It's not just one World Series title that has Houston excited. With Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa, George Springer and more locked in for years to come, the Astros are ready to be a force for some time.

Houston's plan to endure a difficult rebuild has put the team in a great position moving forward. No player in Houston's starting lineup for Game 7 of the World Series will be free agent earlier than 2019.

Alex Bregman and Yuli Gurriel are under team control until 2023, and All-Star shortstop Correa can't hit free agency until 2022. Springer, the World Series MVP, is under control through 2021, and promising young starter Lance McCullers Jr. is under team control until 2022. Altuve has team-friendly club options for the next two seasons that will keep him in town through 2019 at least.
