HOUSTON (AP) - Less than a month before the start of spring training, the American League champion Houston Astros are without a manager and general manager after AJ Hinch and Jeff Luhnow were suspended by Major League Baseball and then fired by team owner Jim Crane for a sign-stealing scheme. The penalties were announced Monday by MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred after he found illicit use of electronics to steal signs in Houston’s run to the 2017 World Series championship and again in the 2018 season. The Astros lost Game 7 of the World Series last year and begin spring training in four weeks.
