KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - On his second day as the Houston Astros' executive adviser, Nolan Ryan asked for patience.
The 67-year-old Hall of Famer is back with the Astros, a team he pitched for during nine of his 27 major league seasons.
During six seasons as president of the Texas Rangers, Ryan helped lead the team to four straight 90-win seasons and World Series appearances in 2010 and 2011. He resigned in October.
The Astros are coming off four consecutive seasons of 100 or more losses.
