Former NASA engineer Mejdal leaves Astros for Orioles

BALTIMORE (AP) New Baltimore Orioles general manager Mike Elias called upon a familiar face to help rebuild the club, hiring former NASA engineer Sig Mejdal from the Houston Astros to be assistant general manager for analytics.

Mejdal will report to Elias and will oversee all aspects of the club's growing analytics effort and serve as an adviser to Elias, the Orioles said Wednesday. Mejdal had been a special assistant for process improvement to Houston GM Jeff Luhnow since October 2015.

Elias was introduced Monday as Baltimore's general manager. The 35-year-old has been charged with turning around a team that finished 47-115, the worst record in the majors.
