Astros | Backe may not be tendered

The Houston Chronicle reports unless a deal is reached before Dec. 12, there is a chance the Houston Astros won't tender a contract to SP Brandon Backe, who had Tommy John surgery on his right arm earlier this year. "Here's a player who's likely to miss the majority of the season," general manager Tim Purpura said. "But also that's a surgery that players typically have been able to come back from not easily, but more successfully in more recent years."
