Winter Meetings underway

Greetings from Nashville, where the annual Winter Meetings are underway. Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow, who was hired as the Meetings came to a close a year ago in Dallas, was scheduled to arrive Monday morning with the rest of his baseball operations staff.

The Astros’ top goal is trying to find a DH ahead of the team’s move to the American League next year. The Astros desperately need to better their run production, and adding a slugging bat to play DH is the easiest way. Luhnow could also add some pitching depth, but the Astros aren’t going to spend big money or commit to any long-term contracts.

This story has a breakdown of what Astros are going to try to do while in Nashville, but stay tuned to for all latest Astros news. First-year Astros manager Bo Porter, hired in October, will meet with the media at 4:30 p.m. CT on Tuesday to give his thoughts on taking over a club coming off 107 losses.
