Astros get permission to interview Nevin

The Astros have received permission to interview former big leaguer Phil Nevin to be their manager, a baseball source confirmed for MLB.com. Nevin, the former No. 1 overall draft pick by the Astros, is managing in the D-backs system at Triple-A Reno.

Nevin, 43, played 12 years in the Major Leagues after being taken by the Astros with the No. 1 overall pick in the 1992 First-Year Player Draft. He was a bust with the Astros, but wound up having a solid career by hitting .270 with 208 homers and 743 RBIs with the Astros, Tigers, Angels, Padres, Rangers, Cubs and Twins.

Nevin managed three seasons at Triple-A Toledo in the Tigers system before the D-backs hired him to managed this year at Reno.

Astros interim manager Tom Lawless will interview with general manager Jeff Luhnow on Saturday in New York for the full-time managerial position. Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reported earlier the Astros have interviewed at least five candidates by phone: A.J. Hinch, Dino Ebel, Torey Lovullo, Don Wakamatsu and Dave Martinez.

Brian, we know Nevin has been around to several MLB teams, so we know his record while playing and his history as manager, would be a good choose like when he first was conserved by the Astros to be a manager, the other selection I don’t know, I am sure you know, but do you have a vote in the selection ?         Ralph
