Happy Thanksgiving, y’all!— Astros Stats (@astro_numbers) November 24, 2022
From an Astros perspective, I’m most thankful for Bryan Abreu’s breakout season, JV’s incredible Cy Young campaign, Framber’s 25 QS streak, and the return of prime Alex Bregman.

Oops! All Astros: Collin Price
Collin Price is a six-foot-six, 205 lb. right-handed catcher and corner outfielder from Suwanee, GA. Born on November 15, 1999, he was Houston’s sixth-round selection in 2022, with the 193rd overall choice out of Mercer State. He agreed to a deal that included a $122,500 signing bonus.
Price joined the Low-A Fayetteville Woodpeckers for his first professional assignment. He started his career with a nine-game hitting streak, banking slash-marks of .387/.457/.581 with seven RBI. On August 3, he hit a pair of doubles with three RBI in an 8-6 win against the Salem Red Sox. On August 21, he put up his first three hit game, collecting a single and two doubles in a 6-2 loss to the Carolina Mudcats.
In total, Price appeared in 19 games for the Peckers, posting a .290/.371/.468 line with two home runs and 10 RBI. He drew seven walks and struck out 17 times. Defensively, he caught 79 innings behind the plate, registering a .980 fielding percentage and throwing out 29 percent of basestealers. He also played five innings in left field and 3 1⁄3 in right field without an error.
Price was very good at the Low-A level, and I’d expect we’d see him next season with the High-A Asheville Tourists.
