Happy Birthday - 2/9

Happy Birthday to ~

RHP Daniel Minor (24)
Drafted in the ninth round in 2012 out of Texas A&M University at Corpus Christi, Minor was 9-3 with a 4.25 ERA and a 1.302 WHIP in 36 bullpen appearances for Lancaster in 2014. He also got the save in a combined no-hitter in May. If you back out Minor's first three appearances of the season (two of which were a bit dicey), his numbers improve to a 3.02 ERA and a 1.145 WHIP over his final 33 outings.

Two former Astros celebrate birthdays today as well ~

RHP Ramon Garcia (46)
Drafted from the Brewers in the 1996 Rule 5 draft, Garcia pitched in 42 games (20 starts) for the Astros in 1997 with a 9-8 record, a 3.69 ERA and a 1.305 WHIP.

LHP Hal Gilson (73)
Gilson came to Houston in a trade with the Cardinals in June 1968 and pitched only three and two-thirds innings in two games for the Astros that year with forgettable results.
