Astros Minor League Recap: POTW

I haven't been able to do player of the week in quite some time, so instead I'm going to basically hand out a player of the week but for guys I think have performed well enough over the past several weeks to deserve it.

Jose Altuve Award: Josh Magee

Magee had one of the bigger stories to end the season for Greeneville and put his name on the list for players to watch next season.  Since he was a high school pick within the first twenty rounds last year, he at least has some talent.  There are several factors that make you drop that far, including being in a small area, not playing the big circuits, or not having outstanding tools.  Either way, he's at least interesting to watch.

Pitcher of the Week: Nick Tropeano

Trope is one of my favorite pitchers from this years draft and has finished the season very strong.  Reports are that he's leaning on his fastball more now and his velocity is actually in the low 90's which makes him all that more of an attractive prospect.  He could move very quickly through the system with a good fastball that apparently has good movement and a changeup that has been described as one of the best in the draft.
