The Houston Astros have hired Dana Brown as their new general manager. He comes to the Astros after working for the Atlanta Braves.

The Astros parted ways with general manager James Click after their World Series win. The position had been open since November.

“I’m coming to a winning team and a big part of what I want to do is sustain the winning long term,” Brown said. “We want to continue to build, continue to sign good players, continue to develop players, and continue the winning success.”

Brown had been with the Braves for the last four seasons. He had been their Vice President of Scouting.

He is credited with helping the Braves having a stellar 2019 draft. The team drafted center fielder Michael Harris II in the third round.

The team also drafted shortstop prospect Vaughn Grissom in the 11th round. Plus, the team also added Shea Langeliers in the same draft, before he was traded to the Oakland Athletics in a trade to acquire Matt Olson.

“When we did the complete evaluation, he’s the perfect fit for us,” owner Jim Crane said.

Click’s contract with the team expired after the World Series. The team elected not to renew it.

He was offered a one-year deal. However, Click decided not to accept the offer.

“At the end of the day, I think it’s good for our sport to have diversity,” Brown said. “I’m really excited for this opportunity and especially grateful that Jim Crane took an opportunity to say, ‘Hey, I like this guy. I like what he’s all about,’ and he’s rolling with me.”
