Rockies’ Geivett in running for Astros’ job
Bill Geivett, the senior vice president of scouting and player development/assistant general manager of the Colorado Rockies, has been given permission to interview with the Astros, a Major League Baseball source confirmed for MLB.com on Thursday.
Houston is trying to fill its GM spot that became open when Ed Wade was dismissed last week after four-plus years.
Geivett, 47, oversees both scouting and player development for the Rockies, while also assisting GM Dan O’Dowd with all baseball decisions and evaluations. He joined the Rockies in 2000 and just completed his 11th season with the club and 24th in professional baseball.
