The Houston Astros, who reached the top of the American Professional Baseball (MLB) last season, are considering Brad Asmus (54), former Los Angeles Angels manager, as their new general manager. reported on the 26th (Korean time), citing a source, 스포츠토토 “Houston is in contact with former manager Asmus to appoint the next general manager,” and “Vice President of Scouting Dana Brown interviewed in person.”

Former coach Asmus, who played an active role as a catcher during his active career, played 1,259 games in a total of 10 seasons wearing a Houston uniform from 1997 to 1998 and 2001 to 2008.

After retiring, he took the helm of the Detroit Tigers for four years from 2014, and in 2019 he took over as manager of the Angels, but was sacked within a year amid poor results of 72-90.

Meanwhile, Houston effectively dismissed general manager James Click six days after winning the World Series in November of last year, and sent the Stove League with the general manager position vacant.

Formally, it was a breakup due to the expiration of the contract, but the local media interpreted it as close to being fired due to a conflict with Jim Crane, the owner of Houston.

In the offseason, Houston traded ace Justin Verlander to the New York Mets, but managed to retain core bullpen Rafael Montero and alternate hitter Michael Brantley. They also recruited heavy hitter Jose Abreu, who was released as a free agent (FA).
