HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston Astros say former slugger Jimmy Wynn has died. He was 78. Wynn was nicknamed “The Toy Cannon” because of the power he produced despite his small size. Wynn was a three-time All-Star outfielder in the 1960s and ’70s. The Astros announced that he died on Thursday, but did not provide any further details.
