Reid Ryan, the son of Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan, is in line to replace George Postolos as president of the Astros, reports CBS Sports. Postolos resigned this week after a short stint as the team's president, saying he was going back to his work as a consultant. There had been some friction between Postolos and new Astros owner Jim Crane stemming from the team's TV deal.

Ryan, 41, ran the team's Double-A team and is CEO of Ryan Sanders Baseball Inc., which includes the Triple-A Round Rock Express, an affiliate of the Texas Rangers, and the Astros' affiliate Double-A Corpus Christi Hooks. His father is the principal owner and CEO of the Texas Rangers.

From the CBS report:

"He's very bright and would be great in that role,'' said a person who has had dealings with the younger Ryan. "He's an out-front personality and good operator.''
