Nolan Ryan has spoken with Astros owner Jim Crane in the month that has passed since Ryan left his post as CEO of the Rangers. But no front-office or advisory job offer has been extended — at least not yet.

“I have talked to Nolan,” Crane said Thursday. “We haven’t really discussed anything about him joining the team yet. But that certainly could be a possibility down the road. It depends what Nolan wants. … As far as an offer of us talking about a position, we haven’t done that.”
