With the 2020 season fast approaching, the Houston Astros have interviewed Buck Showalter for their vacant managerial position, multiple outlets reported Thursday. The Athletic reported that Showalter had a sit-down meeting with Astros executives Wednesday. According to Houston's Fox26, the team also has a meeting scheduled Thursday with another veteran manager: John Gibbons.

The Astros need to replace former manager A.J. Hinch, who was fired this week shortly after he was suspended by Major League Baseball for one season following an investigation into electronic sign-stealing during the 2017 campaign. General manager Jeff Luhnow also was suspended and then fired. Showalter, 63, has managed four teams, starting with the New York Yankees from 1992-1995. He also has been on the bench with the Arizona Diamondbacks (1998-2000), Texas Rangers (2003-2006) and Baltimore Orioles (2010-2018).

In his 20 seasons, he has compiled a 1,551-1,517 record, while also going 9-14 in four postseason appearances. Gibbons, 57, managed the Toronto Blue Jays from 2004-08 and 2013-18. He posted a 793-789 record with two postseason appearances, advancing to the American League Championship Series in 2015 and 2016.
