Happy Birthday - 5/29

Happy Birthday to ~

OF Leo Heras (24)
Heras was in his seventh season with the Mexican League when his contract was purchased by the Astros in August of 2013. In his first 35 games at Corpus Christi this season, he is hitting .218/.350/.319.

OF Terrell Joyce (22)
Drafted by Houston in the 12th round in 2012 out of Florida College, Joyce played in 72 games with Quad Cities in 2013, hitting .186/.284/.283. I am assuming that he is currently in Extended Spring Training.

RHP Juan Delis (20)
Delis was signed as a non-drafted free agent out of Panama and has now pitched for the DSL Astros for the last three seasons. In 13 appearances (18.2 innings) in 2013, Delis was -3 with a 3.38 ERA and a 1.500 WHIP.

RHP Harold Arauz (19)
Arauz signed as a NDFA out of Panama in July 2011 and excelled in his second season for the DSL team in 2013. In sixteen games (12 starts), he was 5-0 with a 1.91 ERA and a 0.894 WHIP.

Two former Astros celebrate the day as well ~

LHP Trever Miller (41)
Originally drafted by Detroit in the first round in 1991, Miller first came to Houston in this trade:
December 10, 1996: Traded by the Detroit Tigers with Brad Ausmus, Jose Lima, C.J. Nitkowski and Daryle Ward to the Houston Astros for Doug Brocail, Brian Hunter, Todd Jones, Orlando Miller and cash.
He pitched on the major league level for Houston in 1998 and 1999 before being traded to Philadelphia in March of 2000. Miller came back to Houston for two additional seasons in 2006 and 2007. In 230 games for the Astros, he was 7-5 with a 3.96 ERA and a 1.435 WHIP. He holds the record for the most appearances in a season (76) without getting a decision in 2007.
A fourth round pick by the Giants in 1983, Hayes played in only 31 games for Houston at the end of his major league career in 2001. He played for seven teams over 14 seasons. His best season was in 1993 for Colorado when he hit .305/.355/.522 with 45 doubles, two triples and 25 home runs.
