The Houston Astros are in need of a new manager after firing A.J. Hinch and already have a list of candidates they are considering.

According to FOX 26 in Houston’s Mark Berman, the Astros have numerous candidates on their list, which includes veteran managers like Jeff Banister, Dusty Baker, Buck Showalter and Bruce Bochy. Current Astros bench coach Joe Espada, Cubs third base coach Will Venable, and Dodgers special assistant Raul Ibanez are others they are considering.

The Astros fired Hinch on Monday, the day MLB announced its punishments for the team for cheating, which included season-long suspensions for Hinch and GM Jeff Luhnow. Houston will actually have some competition in the managerial market. The Boston Red Sox also need a new manager after firing Alex Cora and reportedly are considering some of the same candidates.
