Happy Birthday - 11/9

Happy Birthday to ~

LHP Christian Perdomo (21)
Perdomo is in his second professional season, having played his first in the Red Sox organization. It appears that he was signed as a non-drafted free agent out of ASA College in Brooklyn. In 17 bullpen appearances for the GCL Astros in 2014, he had a 6.75 ERA and a 1.929 WHIP.

Three former Astros also mark the day ~

Witt came to Houston from the Pirates in May 1962 and pitched in eight games for the Colt 45's that season with a 7.04 ERA and a 1.891 WHIP. Witt's major league career was delayed by military service as he served in the Korean War. His best season was for the Pirates in 1958 when he was 9-2 in 18 appearances (15 starts) with a 1.61 ERA and a 1.292 WHIP.

RHP Rick Williams (62)
Signed by Houston as an amateur free agent in 1972, Williams pitched in 48 games (17 starts) for the Astros in 1978 and 1979 with a 3.58 ERA and a 1.314 WHIP.
