No future Astros, but one former Astros with a birthday today ~
LHP Fernando Abad (27)
Abad was signed by the Astros as a NDFA out of the Dominican Republic in 2002. In 2012, he spent most of his season at Houston, but also pitched in 13 games with Oklahoma City. With the Redhawks, he was 2-0 with a 3.90 ERA and a 1.446 WHIP in 13 appearances (two starts). As a reliever at Houston, he had a 3.80 ERA and a 1.437 WHIP in 31 games. Abad was in the process of being converted to a starter late in the season and in six starts, he was 0-6 with a 6.45 ERA and a 1.881 WHIP. Abad became a free agent after the season and signed with the Washington Nationals in November.
