Houston Astros reportedly want Nolan Ryan

Posted: Updated:

When Nolan Ryan left the Texas Rangers he said he had no plans to go to the Houston Astros. But the Astros owner reportedly wants to talk to the baseball legend about going to work there.

Owner Jim Crane told the Houston Chronicle he plans to talk to Ryan soon to gauge his interest in working for the club again.

Ryan played in Houston for nine seasons and was a special assistant to the former owner from 2004 to 2008. His son Reid is now the Astros president of business operations.

Ryan resigned three months ago as chief executive of the Texas Rangers and sold his ownership stake in the team.

While speaking at a banquet Friday he said lately he has been spending a lot more time at his ranch and with his grandkids, and that it's been good to set his own schedule.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
