Porter was the Astros manager since the start of the 2013 season. However, since he was named manager, the team is 110-190 with a .367 win percentage.
Jeff Luhnow, the Astros GM, will begin looking for a new manager immediately.
“Earlier today, I informed Bo Porter that he would no longer be our manager and told Dave Trembley that he would not complete the season as our bench coach,” Luhnow said. “Bo’s passion and energy are unparalleled, and his desire to win unquestioned. This decision was not made because of our current level of competitiveness in the Major Leagues. I recognize that our win-loss record is largely a product of an organizational strategy for which I am responsible. Rather, I made this decision because I believe we need a new direction in our clubhouse.”
“What we will seek going forward is a consistent and united message throughout the entire organization,” Luhnow continued. “It is essential that as an organization we create an atmosphere at the Major League level where our young players can come up and continue to develop and succeed. Ultimately, I am responsible for creating that culture, and I will do everything in my power to do so — even when it means making difficult moves like the one we made today.
“Moving forward, I am optimistic about the direction of our team. Our young core continues to progress, and I believe wholeheartedly that our plan-while at times challenging-is working and will bring a consistent winner to Houston in the very near future.”
