Happy Birthday - 5/17

Happy Birthday to ~

RHP Jordan Jankowski (25)
Drafted by Houston in the 34rd round in 2012, Jankowski started out exclusively out of the bullpen in his first season in 2012 with a great deal of success. Since then, he has been used both as a starter and a reliever and, although he started the 2014 season out of the bullpen in Corpus Christi, he has already evolved into a spot start/long relief role. In 10 games (1 start) this season, Jankowski has a 4.30 ERA, a 1.261 WHIP and 10.2 strikeouts per nine innings of work.

One former Astro celebrates the day as well ~

1B/DH Carlos Pena (36)
Originally drafted by the Rangers in the first round in 1998, Pena signed with Houston as a free agent in December 2012. Pena hit .209/.324/.350 in 85 games with the Astros prior to being released at the end of July 2013. Pena had a Silver Slugger, Gold Glove and All-Star appearance to his name during his time playing for Tampa Bay.
