Happy Birthday - 3/16

Happy Birthday to ~

LHP Reymin Guduan (22)
A NDFA from the Dominican Republic, Guduan made all but one of his 11 appearances (two starts) for the Gulf Coast League Astros, ending the regular season with a spot appearance for Oklahoma City. He compiled a 4.30 ERA and a 1.435 WHIP for the season. Reportedly, Guduan can routinely hit the high 90's with his fastball, but his control is still a little iffy. He struck out 12.5 batters per nine innings, but he also walked 5.1 batters per nine.

IF Raoul Torrez (26)
Signed by Houston as a minor league free agent prior to the 2013 season, Torrez gets the Frequent Flyer Award for getting moved eight different times between Lancaster, Corpus Christi and Oklahoma City. He also played all four infield positions, ten games in left field and I saw him work as a bullpen catcher in Lancaster. Torrez ended the season with a combined line of .225/.297/.326 in 66 games.

One former Astro celebrates today as well ~

RHP Mickey Storey (28)
Originally signed by Oakland in the 31st round in 2008, Storey came to the Astros organization in a trade with Oakland for "future considerations" in July 2011 and made his major league debut in Houston on August 3, 2012. In 26 games, he had a 3.86 ERA and a 1.220 WHIP. He is currently with the Blue Jays organization.
