Happy Birthday - 1/3

Happy Birthday to ~

RHP Hansel Paulino (19)
Signed by Houston as an international free agent from the Dominican Republic, Paulino's first professional season with the DSL was brief as he made only three appearances early in the season and three appearances late in the season, totalling 5.2 innings. Since it's his birthday, let's just be charitable and say that he didn't have the best results.

Manager Omar Lopez (38)
Lopez managed the Quad Cities River Bandits for his second year in 2014. It is his sixth season managing in the Astros system. In 2013, he led the club to a Midwest League Championship.

SS Luis Rivera (51)
Rivera signed as a free agent with Houston in January 1997 and played in only seven games for the Astros that year, hitting .231/.286/.385. He played the bulk of his career prior to that for Montreal and Boston. After his playing days, he went on to manage in the minor leagues for the Cleveland organization before becoming a member of the Indians major league coaching staff. In 2010, he joined the Blue Jays organization and most recently served as third base coach for that organization.
