Since Nolan Ryan resigned as CEO of the Texas Rangers back in October, there have been rumors about him going to work for the Houston Astros. It appears that those rumors have become fact. According to Mark Berman of FOX 26 Houston, Ryan will be joining the Astros front office in an advisory role.
“It would be special and totally different than I have dealt with before because it’s on the major league level and an organization. And if I could assist him in some way, it would be fun and challenging.”
“I see my role in baseball different now from when I was with the Rangers. That gives you kind of a different feel about it and about the way it would involve my time and commitment. It would be more on a consultant type basis.”

He was with the Astros for eight seasons and spent five with the Rangers. Before being back home in his native state of Texas, Ryan also pitched for the New York Mets and the then California Angels. An eight time All-Star , Ryan finished his 27-year career having pitched 5,386 innings, winning 394 games and posting a 3.19 ERA.
