Center field is another position that is not very strong for the Astros' minor league system. Here are some possible options:
Austin Wates (22): he wasn't originally a centerfielder, but the Astros are trying him out some there. At offense-friendly high A Lancaster, Wates has 5 HR, 16 SB, a .785 OPS, and 2 errors.
Jay Austin (20): he is still young, though a recent demotion to Lexington is an indicator of his lack of progress. At Lancaster he had 3 HR, 17 SB, a .683 OPS, and 4 errors. At Lexington so far he has 0 HR, 2 SB, a .683 OPS, and 2 errors.
Daniel Adamson (23): he is old for his level and has been injured for over a month this season, but his numbers are pretty good: 3 HR, 1 SB, .906 OPS, 2 errors at Lexington, after a good half season at Tri-City last year.
Justin Gominsky (21): At Tri-City, this 2011 11th round draft pick has 0 HR, 7 SB, and a .621 OPS to accompany a solid defensive reputation (0 errors).
Javaris Reynolds (18): 2011 7th round pick has struggled some offensively for the GCL Astros - 0 HR, 7 SB, .545 OPS. He also has 2 errors. He does show some patience at the plate (12 walks so far), and has time on his side.
