News: The Astros declined Albers' option for 2015, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. Impact: Albers gave up just one run over 10 innings to begin the year, but a shoulder issue forced him onto the shelf in late April and he was unable to make it back before the end of the campaign. His price tag for 2015 was $3 million, and it seems the Astros were not optimistic he would return and maintain full health throughout the course of next season.(RotoWire, )
