James Click will not return as general manager of the Houston Astros after declining the one-year contract offered to him by team owner Jim Crane.
This comes days after the Houston Astros took down the Philadelphia Phillies in six games to win the World Series.
“We are grateful for all of James’ contributions,” Crane said in a statement. “We have had great success in each of his three seasons, and James has been an important part of that success. I want to personally thank him and wish him and his family well moving forward.”
Click joined the team prior to the 2020 season and helped bring the Astros to the ALCS in 2020 and the World Series in the next two seasons, finally winning it all this year.
The Astros did agree to a one-year contract with manager Dusty Baker for the 2023 season.
