The Astros signed Abreu to a $58.5 million dollar contract in 2022, that has 1.5 years left. With his release, the team will owe him a remaining $30.8 million.
Abreu is a career .283 hitter with 263 homers and 960 RBIs in 11 seasons.

The Astros GM stated that it is obviously a tough pill to swallow when a big contract and a great player doesn't work out, especially with the amount of money they still have to pay out to him.
"It's always tough when the deal doesn't work out, but it just didn't work out this time. I have nothing but good things to say about him," Brown said. "I thought he was very graceful. He handled it well. He understands baseball, and he understands that he wasn't producing and that he ran out of time." - Brown.
