Astros Tuesday Minor League Recap


Apparently the majority of the minor leagues shut down for the All-Star game.  The Pacific Coast League, California League, South Atlantic League, and Appalacian League were all off on Tuesday.  While that made this post a little easier to write, it made it less exciting.  Just four games in one post.  Well three since Tri-City got postponed.  But, all three won which is great right? 

But, I really want to point out the discussion that these posts have generated.  I'm absolutely loving it.  I love discussing our minor league players and all the intricacies of the minor league system.  All opinions, statements, and questions are always welcome and enjoyed.  Yesterday's discussion was great about promoting players whether it was about the Astros aggression in promotion or Jimmy Van Ostrand.  This is really what this whole thing is about, informing you of how guys are doing and getting you excited about what the future of the Astros.  There is light at the end of the tunnel.

Oh yeah, Felipe Paulino made a rehab start for those of you who only follow the big league club and don't focus on the minors much.

Round Rock-Off

Corpus Christi won 5-4 in the 10th

Felipe Paulino started the game in his rehab stint as he gets ready to come back to Houston and it was a solid start to shaking off the rust.  He pitched four scoreless innings and gave up just two and one walk while striking out three. Jailen Peguero pitched three scoreless innings but blew the save since he allowed a run that was charged to Tyler Lumsden.  He allowed three hits and struck out three.  Danny Meszaros got the victory with a scoreless inning of work with one hit, one walk, and one strikeout.  Jack Shuck went 3 for 5 with a stolen base.  Jonathan Gaston went 2 for 4 with a stolen base and a walk.  Michael Affronti went 2 for 4 with a strikeout.  Marcos Cabral went 1 for 4 with a double. 

Lancaster-Off

Lexington-Off

Tri-City-Postponed

Well now there is only three games

Greeneville-Off

GCL Astros lost 9-2

While its impressive that Venezuelan, Luis Ordosgoitti, is playing in an American pro league in his first pro season at the age of 17.  His first two starts were solid but his last two, not so much.  He pitched three and two-thirds innings and gave up five hits and two walks that led to three runs while striking out two.  Evan Grills made his debut out of the pen and allowed just one hit in his one inning of work  Jose Monzon went 1 for 4 with a double and a strikeout. 

DSL Astros lost 5-1

Jose Montero is solid so far and looks to be a major bright spot for the DSL Astros.  He pitched five innings and gave up two runs (one earned) on five hits and two walks while striking out four.  He already features a low 90's fastball and he's just 17 with a projectible 6-4, 190lb frame.  Luis De La Rosa went 2 for 4.  Franny Polanco went 1 for 1 with two walks and a stolen base.  How many catchers do you know of that steal bases?  Yoiner Angulo went 1 for 3 with a double and a strikeout.
