HOUSTON — Just days after winning the World Series, the Astros announced they’re parting ways with general manager James Click.
The team sent a release on Friday morning with the news.
“We are grateful for all of James’ contributions,” team owner Jim Crane said in the release. “We have had great success in each of his three seasons, and James has been an important part of that success. I want to personally thank him and wish him and his family well moving forward.”
Click has been the team’s general manager since 2020, taking over For Jeff Luhnow, who was fired after news of the sign-stealing scandal broke.
Before joining the Astros, Click was with the Tampa Bay Rays as VP of Baseball Operations.
The team said any information about the structure of the baseball operations department will come later.
