Happy Birthday - 11/13

1B/DH Erik Castro (25)
Drafted in the 10th round in 2009 out of San Diego State, Castro spent his second season with Lancaster where he showed that he is fully healed from a surgery that sidetracked his career, shutting him down in 2010 and limiting his playing time in 2011. In 128 games this season, he hit .285/.382/.511 with 27 doubles, one triple, 27 home runs and tied for the organization lead in RBI with 108. Castro was one of many players who contributed to the JetHawks making the playoffs with his .981 OPS in the last 10 regular season games. He hit .306 with five doubles and eight RBI in the post-season.

RHP Chris Devenski (22)
Originally drafted in the 25th round by the White Sox in 2011 out of Cal State Fullerton, Devenski came to the Astros organization a little late as the PTBNL in the Brett Myers trade. He only made five starts for Lexington, going 2-2 with a 3.07 ERA and a 1.330 WHIP, but it was his final start of the season that set him apart as he pitched a complete game no-hitter with 16 strikeouts that was only one walk away from being a perfect game. For the season, he was 8-7 with a 3.86 ERA and a 1.330 WHIP in 24 appearances (13 starts).
