Astros: Buck Showalter interviewed for manager, John Gibbons on deck

Owner Jim Crane is wasting no time to begin the hunt for Houston’s next manager to take the helm and lead the Astros in 2020. With less than a month remaining before Spring Training starts, there really is no time to waste. Just two days after the firing of Hinch, it was reported that Buck Showalter was the first to sit down for an interview yesterday and John Gibbons is scheduled for today.

In Jim Crane’s news conference on Monday announcing that Jeff Luhnow and Hinch were let go, he indicated that he would most likely look externally for their replacements.
