Keith Law is a unique figure in baseball, a person who has shifted between front-office and media positions.
He soon may be on the move again.
Law, a senior baseball writer for ESPN.com, interviewed last week for a number of front-office roles with the Houston Astros, including the job of scouting director, according to major-league sources.
Law met with both new club president George Postolos and general manager Jeff Luhnow, but the team has yet to offer him a position, sources say.
In his current job, Law oversees ESPN’s scouting-related content. Prior to joining ESPN in 2006, he spent 4½ years as a special assistant with the Toronto Blue Jays. Prior to that, he was a free-lance writer for Baseball Prospectus and ESPN.
