Astros Name Tony DeFrancesco As Interim Manager

The Astros announced that they have appointed Tony DeFrancesco as their interim manager.  The 49-year-old was the skipper for the club's Triple-A affiliate.  

Dan Radison has been brought aboard as the club's interim first base coach while Ty Van Burkleo will serve as interim hitting coach.  At this morning's presser, Astros GM Jeff Luhnow stated that the search for a permanent staff will begin immediately.

The Astros cleaned house late last night, dismissing manager Brad Mills, hitting coach Mike Barnett, and first base coach Bobby Meacham.  In total, the club went 171-274 with Mills at the helm.
