Houston Astros general manager Dana Brown won't get the axe with the team falling significantly below expectations to start the 2024 MLB season, according to USA Today's Bob Nightengale.

Nightengale reported Sunday that "Brown's job is safe" with two years left on his current contract.

The Astros are third in the American League West at 32-39. They're nine games back of the first-place Seattle Mariners and trail the Minnesota Twins by 6.5 games for the final wild-card spot.

Beyond its record, José Abreu's release symbolized how Houston has drifted from the team-building strategies that served it so well under previous regimes.
