According to FOXSports reporter and MLB insider Ken Rosenthal, the Houston Astros’ assistant general manager David Stearns is expected to be named the Milwaukee Brewers’ next general manager. Current GM Doug Melvin will be stepping down at the end of the 2015 season.

Although it has not been confirmed yet by the Brewers or Astros, Rosenthal says all sources in the MLB say it is all but confirmed.

Stearns, 30, is a Harvard graduate that is worked throughout baseball in the business side and baseball operations side of the game. He is helped the Astros go from one of the worst teams in baseball to the future of the American League in a short time alongside GM Jeff Luhnow. Stearns would fit the Brewers’ desires for a young and analytics-focused hire.

The Brewers are expected to announce the hire tomorrow. Once the report is confirmed, we’ll tweet it out along with a copy of the Brewers’ statement here. david-stearns

Here’s the Astros’ description of Stearns from their website:

The 2015 season will mark David Stearns’ third with the Houston Astros. In his current role, David, 30, assists General Manager Jeff Luhnow in all baseball operations capacities including player evaluations, player transactions, and contract negotiations and helps oversee the Astros’ scouting, player development, and analytics departments.

Prior to joining the Astros, David served as the Director of Baseball Operations for the Cleveland Indians from 2011-2012. Stearns spent 2008-11 working in the MLB Office of the Commissioner, where he most recently held the position of Manager, Labor Relations. In that role, he assisted in the salary arbitration process, handling uniform player contracts and was a member of MLB’s negotiating team for the recently completed Collective Bargaining Agreement.

Before joining the MLB Central Office, David worked in the Baseball Operations Departments of the New York Mets, Pittsburgh Pirates and the Arizona Fall League. He is a 2007 graduate of Harvard University.
