Carlos Correa has been with the Houston Astros since he was 17, but his time with the team is likely nearing its expiration date, which will likely end when the club’s playoff career ends.

“This is my house,” he said. But it doesn’t depend on me.

Correa becomes a free agent after the season and the Astros appear unwilling to pay him what another team will likely do. The parties negotiated in the offseason to no avail, and the star shortstop cut off the talks when the season began so they weren’t a distraction.

He certainly hasn’t looked worried on the field this year, hitting 26 home runs and leading all position players with 7.2 overall WAR and 2.9 defensive WAR.

“I just hope there is a way to retain and sign Carlos, because he is a great part of this team, not only on the field, but he is one of the true leaders,” said the manager Dusty Baker.

General manager James Click deflected conversations about Correa’s future. “Right now, we’re focused on the postseason,” he said. “We will address the rest when we can.”

With his future in limbo, Correa reflected on what this team has meant to him as he went from boy to man. He remembered the day in 2012 when the Astros drafted him first overall. And the overwhelming feelings that enveloped him the moment he set foot in Minute Maid Park shortly after that.

“I felt like it was still a dream and I couldn’t wait to be here, playing full time,” he said. Correa knew what was expected of him from day one and was challenged to help turn around a franchise that lost 107 games the year he was drafted.
