The Astros re-signed veteran catcher Brad Ausmus to a one-year, $2 million contract today that includes incentive bonuses.

Ausmus, 38, hit .235 (83-for-349) with three home runs, 17 doubles and 25 RBIs in 117 games with the Astros this year. He is the franchise’s all-time leader in both games (1,166) and starts (1,057) at catcher and leads the majors in games played, assists and total chances at the position since 1995.

I have no problem at all with this move. It will be good for Towles development.

Yes it will. Towles gets most of the starts, Ausmus as backup... and feeding his knowledge to Towles in between.

I know it's unrealistic to think Towles will continue hitting at the torrid pace he set in September, but I was impressed by how impressed management & Ausmus was with his maturity as a catcher. I don't remember hearing that about any of our other catching "prospects".

No, we have multiple tracks that our minds follow... they just all run parallel to that one.
