Astros interview Keith Law
The Astros have interviewed Keith Law, a senior baseball writer for ESPN.com, for a number of different positions in their front office, a source has confirmed for MLB.com.
Law met last week with team president and CEO George Postolos and general manager Jeff Luhnow, but Law has not been offered a job in the organization. Law has worked for ESPN since 2006, but was previously a special assistant with the Toronto Blue Jays. Prior to that, he wrote for Baseball Prospectus.
Luhnow declined to comment on Thursday.
Law, a graduate of Harvard, writes on a variety of baseball topics and relies heavily on statistical analysis. Luhnow, while working for the Cardinals, helped change the organization’s thinking when it came to scouting and developed player evaluation methods that increased the role of data-based analysis.
