The Houston Astros and outfielder Kyle Tucker weren't able to reach a contract extension and are no longer discussing a new deal, sources told Mark Feinsand and Brian McTaggart of MLB.com.

Tucker is making just over $762,000 this season and will become arbitration-eligible for the first time in 2023.

The 25-year-old is coming off a breakout 2021 campaign in which he slashed .294/.359/.557 with 30 homers and 92 RBIs over 140 games for the Astros. He's hit five round-trippers with an .800 OPS across 34 contests in 2022.
