After a lengthy search, the Houston Astros announced on Thursday that they have hired a new GM to replace James Click.

The Astros hired former Braves VP of Scouting, Dana Brown. Brown has made a name for himself as a top-notch talent evaluator, recently drafting Spencer Strider (2020) in the fourth round and Michael Harris (2019) in the third. Harris was the 2022 NL Rookie of the Year, with Strider finishing in second place.

Bob Nightengale is reporting that the job came down to Brown and former Astro, Brad Ausmus.

Now the Astros are set to get the 2023 season started with their new GM in place, and pitchers and catchers reporting to spring training in mid-February.
