Happy Birthday - 10/28

Happy Birthday to ~

OF Brauly Mejia (20)
Signed by the Astros as an international free agent in May 2012 out of the Dominican Republic, Mejia spent most of his 2014 season with the Gulf Coast League Astros, hitting .273/.394/.429 in 49 games. He played his last five games of the season with Quad Cities, and let's just say that his bat didn't have time to get warmed up.

RHP Mark Knudson (54)
Drafted by the Astros in the third round in 1982, Knudson pitched in only 11 games for the Astros in 1985 and 1986. In those 11 games (9 starts), he went 1-7 with a 5.20 ERA and a 1.621 WHIP. He was traded to the Brewers in August of 1986 and went on to have modest success with Milwaukee over six seasons with that organization.

Originally drafted by the Mets in the eighth round in 1987, Bogar came to Houston in a March 1997 trade with New York. In 392 games for the Astros in 1997 through 2000, he hit .219/.297/.327 with 43 doubles, nine triples and sixteen home runs. In the 1999 NLDS, he went 3-for-4 with a double, walk and an RBI. In 2014, he served as the bench coach and interim manager for the Texas Rangers.

RHP Kirk Bullinger (45)
A 32nd round pick by the Cardinals in 1992, Bullinger signed with Houston as a free agent in December of 2001. In 34 games pitched for the Astros in 2003 and 2004, he had a 6.28 ERA and a 1.397 WHIP.
