Happy Birthday ~

RHP Derick Velazquez (21)
Drafted by Houston in the 7th round out of California State University Fresno, Velazquez had a very successful inaugural season with the Tri-City team. In 18 appearances out of the bullpen, he was 2-1 with a 1.57 ERA, a 0.857 WHIP and two saves. He walked only two batters and struck out 24 in 23 innings of work.

Two former Astros celebrate the day as well ~

1B/OF Jim Fuller (64)
A second round pick by the Orioles in 1970, Fuller came to Houston as a free agent in November 1976. In 34 games for the Astros in 1977, he hit .160/.243/.280. In nine seasons in the minors, he hit .254/.351/.505.

RHP Pedro Astacio (46)
Astacio came to Houston in a July 2001 trade with the Rockies for Scott Elarton. In four starts for the Astros that season he was 2-1 with a 3.14 ERA and 1.186 WHIP.
