Astros fire Jeff Luhnow and A.J. Hinch

Houston Astros

The Houston Astros have fired GM Jeff Luhnow and manager A.J. Hinch. These firings come directly on the heels of the MLB announcing they would be suspended for one year due to the cheating scandal.

ESPN’s Jeff Passan broke the news via Twitter on Monday afternoon. He went on to say who would take over baseball operations and the GM position.

These firings are mildly surprising, considering their success with the Astros. But the cheating scandal left a black mark on the organization, and their only World Series victory. This must have lead Crane to make the business decision to move on from the scandal entirely.

The news of the suspensions broke around 2:25 on Monday afternoon. The details of the suspension and the scandal are laid out in TGH’s breaking news article here.

There is no information on who will be the next manager of the Astros, although it seems assistant GM Putila will likely be elevated.
