The Houston Astros are an American professional baseball team based in Houston. The Astros compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League (AL) West division, having moved to the division in 2013 after spending their first 51 seasons in the National League (NL).
A. J. Hinch, the manager of the Houston Astros, and Jeff Luhnow, the general manager of the Houston Astros, both received one-year suspensions from Major League Baseball on January 13, 2020, after an investigation revealed that the Houston Astros stole signs during their run to the 2017 World Series. Both men were terminated shortly after receiving their suspensions.
On January 29 and February 3, 2020, respectively, it was reported that Dusty Baker would be taking over as the new manager, while James Click would take over as the new general manager.
The 2020 baseball season was cut short due to the pandemic, but the Houston Astros still managed to qualify for the postseason despite finishing with a losing record.
They made a run for their fourth straight appearance in the American League Championship Series by claiming victories over their division rivals, the Oakland Athletics and the Minnesota Twins.
In spite of the fact that they were just the second team in the history of baseball to come back from being down 0–3 in a series, the Astros were ultimately defeated by the Tampa Bay Rays in the American League Championship Series after seven games that were historically close.
