Quincy Hamilton (25) just may be the next outfielder to make his major league debut with Houston. Since starting the 2022 season with the Low-A Fayetteville Woodpeckers, Hamilton was promoted three times, culminating in his joining the Triple-A Sugar Land Space Cowboys just a week ago. He’s hit .278 in 47 games between Houston’s highest two levels of minor league ball this year, with 10 jacks and 37 RBI.
