Houston Astros Birthdays

Michael Knorr (23) was a third round choice out of Coastal Carolina in the most recent MLB Draft. A right-handed starting pitcher, he was recently promoted from the Low-A Fayetteville Woodpeckers to the High-A Asheville Tourists.

Switch-hitting right fielder Kevin Bass (64) spent 10 of his 14 major league seasons with Houston in two stretches from 1982 to 1994. He hit .278/.330/.423 with 87 home runs and 468 RBI.

A third-round pick in 2017, Tyler Ivey (27) made his major league debut in 2021, allowing four runs over 4 23 innings, striking out three. He went on the restricted list early last season, and hasn’t appeared in a game since then.
