Former Detroit Tigers and Los Angeles Angels manager Brad Ausmus is set to interview for the Houston Astros‘ managerial vacancy, according to MLB.com reporter Brian McTaggart.
The former catcher, who spent 10 of his 18 years in the league behind the plate for the Astros, compiled a 314-332 record during his four years as a manager in Detroit and a 72-90 record during his lone season in Los Angeles.
The Astros are searching for a manager after firing A.J. Hinch in the wake of MLB’s findings from the 2017 sign-stealing scandal. Hinch guided the Astros to a World Series title that season.
Earlier this month, former Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons interviewed for the position.
