HOUSTON (CBS HOUSTON) – The Houston Astros are facing a tough situation.  Reports from CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman are that the Astros #1 overall pick Brady Aiken has an issue with his elbow ligament.

The issue is delaying the Astros signing of the left-handed pitcher as the Astros have lowered their offer to the top pick.

A deal was close to being done a few weeks ago, but was called off last minute and speculation of a medical issue arose.  Now that issue has been confirmed and might cost the young prospect $1.5 million on his contract.  Heyman reports the Astros have dropped their offer from $6.5 million to $5 million.

The deadline to sign Aiken is July 18th.
