No future Astros with birthdays today, but these former Astros celebrate the day ~

Hernandez was first signed by the Tigers in 2001 as a NDFA out of the Dominican Republic and was picked up from Cleveland by the Astros as a waiver claim in 2010.  In 132 games for Houston in 2010, he hit .188/.304/.229. Hernandez played for the Chunichi Dragons in the Japan Central League in 2014.
