Report: Brad Ausmus interviewing for Astros manager job

Brad Ausmus

Another experienced candidate has emerged as the Houston Astros hunt for a new manager.

According to Brian McTaggart of, former Tigers and Angels manager Brad Ausmus is a candidate for the Houston manager job, and is in town to interview for the position on Friday.

Ausmus was very closely linked to the Astros during his playing days. He spent parts of ten seasons there, and was a member of their National League championship team in 2005. He’s 386-422, and his only playoff appearance came in 2014 with a talented Detroit team he inherited from Jim Leyland. Perhaps that will help his cause, as the Astros will be looking for someone to win with a championship-caliber roster assembled and guided by the new manager’s predecessors.

The Astros have been speaking to a host of experienced candidates as they work to replace A.J. Hinch, who was fired for his role in the team’s sign stealing scandal. Ausmus is one of the more prominent names involved, but not the most prominent interview so far.
