Astros Hiring Surprising GM Candidate

The Astros are hiring a surprising GM candidate, it would appear.

Although the organization has received much more press for its managerial search, Houston also needs a new general manager.

After Major League Baseball came out and implicated the Astros in a far-reaching signal-stealing operation, the team fired former GM Jeff Luhnow.

According to The Athletic MLB insider Ken Rosenthal, Houston is now interviewing former San Francisco Giants general manager Bobby Evans for the role.

“Former #SFGiants GM Bobby Evans has interviewed for the #Astros’ GM position, sources tell The Athletic,” he tweeted out.

Evans served as San Francisco’s GM for a three-year stretch between 2015 and 2018.

He also served as the team’s vice president of baseball operations for the 2010, 2012 and 2014 championship campaigns.

The Astros will continue to interview potential candidates for general manager and skipper over the next week, but will likely make a final decision regarding both positions at some point in early February.
