Rockies assistant general manager Bill Geivett is a candidate for the Astros’ general manager opening, according to Brian McTaggart of MLB.com.
McTaggart writes that the Rockies granted the Astros permission to interview Geivett, although the Rangers did the same with Thad Levine earlier this week and he ultimately decided to withdraw his name from consideration anyway.
Geivitt is in charge of the Rockies’ scouting and player development, and the 47-year-old has spent 11 seasons in Colorado’s front office. He previously worked for the Dodgers, Rays, Yankees and Expos.
