The Astros did not extend Gonzalez a $17.9 million qualifying offer prior to Friday's deadline, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports.

Gonzalez is officially on the free-agent market after spending the past seven years in the Astros' system. Though he took a step back from his breakout campaign in 2017, the 29-year-old still provided solid value as a Swiss Army knife for Houston this past season, slashing .247/.324/.409 with 16 home runs and 68 RBI while playing every position except pitcher and catcher.
