Nolan Ryan joins Galloway & Company to discuss his role with the Rangers. Ryan says that he has not been in contact with the Astros about a possible opening and he doesn't think that he would be interested anyway.
According to the report, the Astros will introduce Reid Ryan at a Friday news conference.
The hiring of Reid Ryan will end a short search for a new president after George Postolos announced his resignation Monday.
Reid Ryan, 41, has been serving on the board of trustees for Major League Baseball, the executive committee of the Pacific Coast League and is the board of trustees representative for the Baseball Internet Rights Company.
Reid Ryan's father played nine of his 27 major league seasons with the Astros, and is baseball's all-time strikeout leader. He is currently president and CEO of the Texas Rangers.
