The 2016 Houston Astros season was the 55th season for the Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise in Houston, their 52nd as the Astros, fourth in both the American League (AL) and AL West division, and 17th at Minute Maid Park. After a 7–17 start in the month of April, the Astros produced a winning record over their next four months, highlighted by an 18–8 record in June. After going 12–15 in September, the Astros were eliminated from playoff contention. They finished in third place in the AL West with a final record of 84–78, eleven games back of the division champion Texas Rangers.

Offseason[edit]

Spring training[edit]

2016 marked the final year the Astros will play their spring training ball at Osceola County Stadium in Kissimmee, Florida, where Houston has played since 1985. In 2017, the Astros will move to The Ballpark of The Palm Beaches, a brand new stadium located in West Palm Beach, Florida that Houston will share with the Washington Nationals.[9][10]

Houston finished fifth in the Grapefruit League with an 18–11 record, four games back of the champion Nationals.
