Brad Ausmus, who played 10 seasons for the Houston Astros over two separate stints, will interview for the team's vacant manager position, multiple outlets reported Friday. Ausmus managed the Los Angeles Angels in 2019 but was fired after one season after the team went 72-90 and finished in fourth place in the American League West. The Angels have since hired former Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon to the post.

Ausmus also has four years of experience as the manager of the Detroit Tigers from 2014-17, going 314-332. The club won the American League Central in his first season. The 50-year old was a career .251 hitter with 80 home runs and 607 RBIs. He batted .246 with 41 home runs and 386 RBIs in his 10 seasons with the Astros, winning three Gold Glove Awards with the club.

The Astros reportedly will narrow their candidate list this weekend and possibly name a successor to A.J. Hinch next week. Hinch was fired, along with general manager Jeff Luhnow, in the fallout of Major League Baseball's investigation into electronic sign-stealing during the 2017 season. In addition to Ausmus, the Astros' list of manager candidates includes Buck Showalter, Dusty Baker, John Gibbons, Will Venable, Jeff Banister, Eduardo Perez, and Joe Espada.
