the BEST
Houston Astros 1965 - 1993 logo
4 John Cangelosi Cards
Outfield
 
Cangelosi is the Astros' all-time leader (minmum 500 plate appearances) in a stat I made up called "special bases," which is:
(Walks + Hit By Pitch + Stolen Bases)
minus
(2 x Caught Stealing)
all divided by
(Plate Appearances - Hits).
I was trying to come up with a stat that would quantify a player's ability to get a base for you, regardless of his ability to hit. Only 4 players (again 500 PA minimum) have had a career special bases score over .200 with the Astros: Cangelosi at .255, Jeff Bagwell, Joe Morgan, and career walk-rate leader Joe Ferguson.

Houston Astros 1965 - 1993 logoThree years in the minors, including league MVP of the Florida State League in '87, then went 1 - 1 in 6 games in '89 for Houston with a 5.09 ERA; I guess he was released or traded out of spring training in '90. Most famously, the father of Robinson Cano
7 Mike Capel Cards

6 Francisco Caraballo Cards Outfield
Led the 2003 Martinsville Astros in triples--and in strikeouts. Second behind Pence in homers for the 2005 Lexington Legends, and was named a South Atlantic League All-Star as a result.

Lexington Legends logo
9 David Carpenter Cards
Pitcher

Began 2011 at AA Corpus, but was promoted to AAA Oklahoma in May, where he didn''t give up a run in 19 games. Made his major league debut with Houston on June 30, and pitched in 34 games thereafter, posting a 1 - 3 record and a 2.93 ERA. Probably the centerpiece (for the Jays, anyway) in the ten-player deal that Luhnow engineered with Toronto on July 20, 2012

Round Rock Express logo
Righthander with little defensive utility but with the freest, easiest power swing you have ever seen was acquired from the Oakland A's on February 4, 2013 with Brad Peacock and Max Stass in exchange for Jed Lowrie and Fernando Martinez. Hit 29 Homers and walked 70 times to lead the team in 2013, while also posting a ridiculous 212 Strikeouts, which needless to say led the American League. "Only" struck out 182 times in 2014, while becoming the first Astros since Carlos Lee in 2007 to hit 30 Homers, and in fact finished second in the American League; however, Walks were down to 54
12 Albert Cartwright Cards 2nd Base
Lexington Legends logoSecond baseman from Nassau, The Bahamas played at Greeneville in 2007, then posted a team-best .410 OBP upon repeating there for 2008.

1 Jack Cassel Card
Pitcher
 
Brother of Patriot stringer Matt pitched at Round Rock and with Houston in 2008, going 9 - 5 with a 3.69 for the team at Dell Diamond, and 1 - 1 with a 5.64 for the one at Minute Maid Park

4 Vinny Castilla Cards Third Base
Houston Astros logo, 2000 -
Free agent that the Hun stumbled across in midseason was a key to the 2001 Central crown, and became known among those in the know as "The Mexican Mullet." Hit three homers (and was robbed of a fourth) in the first game of the doubleheader vs. the Pirates July 28, 2001
1 Braulio Castillo Card Outfield
Tucson Toros logoJourneyman spent a year in Tucson
3 Jeiler Castillo Cards Pitcher
Venezuelan righthanded reliever spent two years at Greeneville and had a 5.00+ ERA in both of them. However: in 2008, his K/BB was 18:21 and in 2009 it was 34:14. Began 2010 at Tri-City, but was demoted quickly and spent the rest of the year at G-ville, where he fiunally got the ERA below 5.00
Tucson Toros logo
10 Erik Castro Cards Infield
Tenth round pick in the June 2009 draft had played catcher at San Diego State University under Tony Gwynn, but played third base for the V-Cats during his debut season in the Astros chain. Missed all of 2010 with an injury, then OPSed .772 at Lancaster in 2011. Primary DH for the Cal League champion JetHawks in 2012, and led that team in RBIs, Total Bases, and Doubles, while co-leading in hits and finishing second in homers. Finished third to Domingo Santana and George Springer for the 2013 Corpus Christi Hooks in Homers, and led the team in Walks, too, while earning the Hooks' Player of the Month award in May and August. Began at OKC in 2014, but hit .175 and was released in June, to be picked up the Braves a month later

89 JASON CASTRO Cards
Catcher
 
10th overall pick in the June 2008 draft hit .275 at Tri-City that summer, and was playing at AA Corpus Christi by June 2009. After JR Towles flunked out for the last time in April 2010, it was only a matter of time before Castro was prematurely recalled to back up Humberto Quintero, and it was . . . . premature, that is. Missed all of 2011 with a knee injury. Split time with Chris Snyder (mostly) and Carlos Corporan in 2012, and had a 92 OPS+ through the middle of August The primary starter in 2013, and propelled by an offensive attack that featured a bunch of doubles, found himself named as the Astros' only representative in that season's All-Star Game. Disappointing season in 2014, as he hit only .222, while being outplayed in most phases by his backup Corporan
Lancaster JetHawks logo
22 Ramon Castro CardsCatcher

Missed all of 2011 with a knee injury. Split time with Chris Snyder (mostly) and Carlos Corporan in 2012, and had a 92 OPS+ through the middle of August The primary starter in 2013, and propelled by an offensive attack that featured a bunch of doubles, found himself named as the Astros' only representative in that season's All-Star Game. Disappointing season in 2014, as he hit only .222, while being outplayed in most phases by his backup Corporan

all divided by
(Plate Appearances - Hits).
I was trying to come up with a stat that would quantify a player's ability to get a base for you, regardless of his ability to hit. Only 4 players (again 500 PA minimum) have had a career special bases score over .200 with the Astros: Cangelosi at .255, Jeff Bagwell, Joe Morgan, and career walk-rate leader Joe Ferguson.

25 Koby Clemens Cards3rd Base
8th Round Pick in 2005 deflated talk of nepotism by slugging .477 with a .398 OBP in his first season at Greeneville. First professional homer was a grand slam. A hand injury in 2006 while playing for Lexington kept Koby from getting up a full head of steam--or did he just reach his ceiling? Repeated at Lexington in '07, and raised his OPS to .756 while leading the team in homers with 15--but he also struck out 122 times. Made the conversion to catcher that many had predicted for Salem in 2008, and hit about .270 with a .420 SLG. The arrest for disorderly conduct that came after--even though charges were dismissed--sure didn't help the by-then beleaguered family name. In 2009, though, came a truly surprising and truly awesome year: Playing for the High A Lancaster JetHawks, Clemens led the California League in average, slugging, RBI and OPS, while finishing third in OBP. Clemens' 121 RBI led all of minor league baseball, and he was named Lancaster's MVP for the year. Hit 26 homers (good for third in the Texas League) at Corpus in 2010, and was named team co-MVP, despite a .241 batting average. Hit .235 at AAA Oklahoma City in 2011, and even his team-leaading 16 homers would not persuade the Astros to re-sign him

UT graduate was already headed for the Hall of Fame when he decided to pitch a season for his quasi-hometown 'Stros. Won his first seven starts as an Astro, and was elected to start the 2004 All-Star Game held at Minute Maid Park. But Clemens got shelled during the All-Star game, and lost Game 7 of the 2004 NLCS, so he decided to come back and try again in 2005--when he improved his ERA to the point where he led the league, and won a playoff game in relief. But Roger was not happy with the playoffless Astros in 2006, and he returned to the Yankees for 2007, for whom he was somewhat underwhelming.

Middling infielder copped an attitude in '69 when he failed to report after trade from Expos; Clendenon was returned, and the teams scrambled to make a bad trade for the Astros even worse. Never played an inning in Houston, yet somehow, the people at Topps came up with the 1969 Topps # 208, and the people at Milton Bradley followed suit. Clendenon unfortunately had the last laugh when he was named 1969 World Series MVP for the Mets, a team he evidently found more to his liking.

25 Koby Clemens Cards3rd Base
8th Round Pick in 2005 deflated talk of nepotism by slugging .477 with a .398 OBP in his first season at Greeneville. First professional homer was a grand slam. A hand injury in 2006 while playing for Lexington kept Koby from getting up a full head of steam--or did he just reach his ceiling? Repeated at Lexington in '07, and raised his OPS to .756 while leading the team in homers with 15--but he also struck out 122 times. Made the conversion to catcher that many had predicted for Salem in 2008, and hit about .270 with a .420 SLG. The arrest for disorderly conduct that came after--even though charges were dismissed--sure didn't help the by-then beleaguered family name. In 2009, though, came a truly surprising and truly awesome year: Playing for the High A Lancaster JetHawks, Clemens led the California League in average, slugging, RBI and OPS, while finishing third in OBP. Clemens' 121 RBI led all of minor league baseball, and he was named Lancaster's MVP for the year. Hit 26 homers (good for third in the Texas League) at Corpus in 2010, and was named team co-MVP, despite a .241 batting average. Hit .235 at AAA Oklahoma City in 2011, and even his team-leaading 16 homers would not persuade the Astros to re-sign him

Pitcher
 
UT graduate was already headed for the Hall of Fame when he decided to pitch a season for his quasi-hometown 'Stros. Won his first seven starts as an Astro, and was elected to start the 2004 All-Star Game held at Minute Maid Park. But Clemens got shelled during the All-Star game, and lost Game 7 of the 2004 NLCS, so he decided to come back and try again in 2005--when he improved his ERA to the point where he led the league, and won a playoff game in relief. But Roger was not happy with the playoffless Astros in 2006, and he returned to the Yankees for 2007, for whom he was somewhat underwhelming.

Never played an inning in Houston, yet somehow, the people at Topps came up with the 1969 Topps # 208, and the people at Milton Bradley followed suit. Clendenon unfortunately had the last laugh when he was named 1969 World Series MVP for the Mets, a team he evidently found more to his liking.

Only 7 runs were charged to Clancy, though, let's give credit to Bob Forsch, as well--there's plenty to go around.

Named the Legends' Offensive Player of the Month in May of '08, Corrado was assigned to High A Lancaster for 2009 and spent the season as their starting second baseman, though the results were middling at best

56 Carlos Correa CardsShortstop
Lancaster JetHawks logo
The organization's first number-one-overall June pick since Phil Nevin played only 11 games for 2012 Greeneville after signing, but slugged .600 and only made the one Error. Spent all of 2013 at Quad Cities as the youngest player in the Midwest League, and was named River Bandits Player of the Month twice, while also being named to the Midseason and Postseason League All-Star squads. Led the MWL in OPS, and finished over .400 in OBP, good for second on the circuit. 2014 was just as successful at High A Lancasrter . . . until he broke his fibula in June, and had his season ended. The numbers he posted until then were quite good, as he once again OBPed over .400 and slugged over .500, while fielding his position quite well. Began 2015 at Corpus Christi and led the Texas League in Doubles through April
2 Jorge Correa Cards Pitcher
Correa went 1 - 0 with a 20.65 in six games for the 1992 Auburn Astros. Think about that for a second. On the major league level, for example, only Dean Wilkins in the entire history of the Houston National League franchise, had a career ERA above even 10.00 and still managed to maintain a winning record. He was 2 - 1 with an 11.25 in 1991. Although now that I look further, I see that JR Richard did go 1 - 0 with a 13.50 for the '72 squad . . . .

Groundball pitcher who posted a 1.27 WHIP at Corpus in '11 got a slow start in 2012, but still managed to finish with a 3.52 at AA Corpus and a 2.60 at AAA OKC. Texas League Pitcher of the Week June 25, 2012. Surpassed Darryl Kile by pitching 6-1/3 no-hit innings to begin his major league debut on July 12, 2013, finishing with two hits over eight scoreless innings in getting the win over the Tampa Rays. Member of the Houston starting staff to begin 2014. Awful out of the gate, he was fantastic in May and June before running his mouth off on Twitter and thereby running afoul of stentorian management. Shortly thereafter traded to the Marlins for Jake Marisnick

Much like my personal fave, Curt Schilling, Cosgrove gave up a hit in a ninth inning after relieving a pitcher or pitchers who had thrown no-hit ball through eight. Cosgrove ruined the magic September 4, 1974, when Don Wilson, bidding for his third no-hitter, trailed the Reds 2 - 1 through the penultimate inning. Manager Preston Gomez brought in Cosgrove, Cosgrove gave up a single to Tony Perez, the Astros lost, and what could have been a game everyone remembers has now instead been totally forgotten.

6 Jamaine Cotton Cards Pitcher
15th round pick in the June '10 draft from St. Thomas, USVI is probably the only Jamaine in professional baseball history. Posted an 8.36 at Greeneville in 2010. Split 2011 between G-ville and Tri-City and actually pitched better in the NYPL. Stayed with the V-Cats for 2012, and despite a 3.31 ERA that was in the team's bottom quartile, Cotton did show a respectable 32:15 K/BB for the New York-Penn league runners up. 4.77 ERA at Quad Cities in 2013

Minor league veteran played 22 games at Oklahoma City and 52 at Houston in 2011. The at bats with the big club weren't pretty, but he slugged .413 with the Redhawks. Assigned to Oklahoma City again to begin 2012, Corporan once again got called up to help the hapless major league club, but this time contributed quite nicely, outslugging primary backstop Jason Castro, and much of the bench besides

3 Craig Corrado Cards 1st Base
14th round pick in the June 2007 draft committed 29 errors at Greeneville that year, but also led the club in stolen bases. Led Lexington in total bases in 2008, while finishing second in average. Named the Legends' Offensive Player of the Month in May of '08, Corrado was assigned to High A Lancaster for 2009 and spent the season as their starting second baseman, though the results were middling at best
Lancaster JetHawks logo
56 Carlos Correa CardsShortstop
Lancaster JetHawks logo
The organization's first number-one-overall June pick since Phil Nevin played only 11 games for 2012 Greeneville after signing, but slugged .600 and only made the one Error. Spent all of 2013 at Quad Cities as the youngest player in the Midwest League, and was named River Bandits Player of the Month twice, while also being named to the Midseason and Postseason League All-Star squads. Led the MWL in OPS, and finished over .400 in OBP, good for second on the circuit. 2014 was just as successful at High A Lancasrter . . . until he broke his fibula in June, and had his season ended. The numbers he posted until then were quite good, as he once again OBPed over .400 and slugged over .500, while fielding his position quite well. Began 2015 at Corpus Christi and led the Texas League in Doubles through April
2 Jorge Correa Cards Pitcher
Correa went 1 - 0 with a 20.65 in six games for the 1992 Auburn Astros. Think about that for a second. On the major league level, for example, only Dean Wilkins in the entire history of the Houston National League franchise, had a career ERA above even 10.00 and still managed to maintain a winning record. He was 2 - 1 with an 11.25 in 1991. Although now that I look further, I see that JR Richard did go 1 - 0 with a 13.50 for the '72 squad . . . .

Relief Pitcher

62 Jarred Cosart Cards
Pitcher
 
The first Jarred who spelled his name with two R's in team history, Cosart was acquired in the deal that sent Hunter Pence away in July of 2011. Groundball pitcher who posted a 1.27 WHIP at Corpus in '11 got a slow start in 2012, but still managed to finish with a 3.52 at AA Corpus and a 2.60 at AAA OKC. Texas League Pitcher of the Week June 25, 2012. Surpassed Darryl Kile by pitching 6-1/3 no-hit innings to begin his major league debut on July 12, 2013, finishing with two hits over eight scoreless innings in getting the win over the Tampa Rays. Member of the Houston starting staff to begin 2014. Awful out of the gate, he was fantastic in May and June before running his mouth off on Twitter and thereby running afoul of stentorian management. Shortly thereafter traded to the Marlins for Jake Marisnick

2 Rob Cosby Cards Infield
Minor league free agent signed by the Astros in January of 2008 played at Corpus that summer, hitting .222 in 102 games

12 Mike Cosgrove Cards
Pitcher
 
Much like my personal fave, Curt Schilling, Cosgrove gave up a hit in a ninth inning after relieving a pitcher or pitchers who had thrown no-hit ball through eight. Cosgrove ruined the magic September 4, 1974, when Don Wilson, bidding for his third no-hitter, trailed the Reds 2 - 1 through the penultimate inning. Manager Preston Gomez brought in Cosgrove, Cosgrove gave up a single to Tony Perez, the Astros lost, and what could have been a game everyone remembers has now instead been totally forgotten.

6 Jamaine Cotton Cards Pitcher
15th round pick in the June '10 draft from St. Thomas, USVI is probably the only Jamaine in professional baseball history. Posted an 8.36 at Greeneville in 2010. Split 2011 between G-ville and Tri-City and actually pitched better in the NYPL. Stayed with the V-Cats for 2012, and despite a 3.31 ERA that was in the team's bottom quartile, Cotton did show a respectable 32:15 K/BB for the New York-Penn league runners up. 4.77 ERA at Quad Cities in 2013

Very respectable finish in Colts' first year, then got no better; replaced by Lum Harris September 19, 1964--with 13 games left in the season. I am now also finding that Craft, much earlier in his career, caught a flyball for the last out in Vander Meer's second no-hitter.

Moderately well-traveled major league righthander was acquired in the July 2012 trade that sent JA Happ, David Carpenter, and Brandon Lyon to the Blue Jays. Cordero pitched in six games with a 19.80 before very quickly getting released on September 10
1 Mike Corominas Card Pitcher
1995 - 2000 Auburn Doubledays logo
12 Carlos Corporan Cards Catcher
Minor league veteran played 22 games at Oklahoma City and 52 at Houston in 2011. The at bats with the big club weren't pretty, but he slugged .413 with the Redhawks. Assigned to Oklahoma City again to begin 2012, Corporan once again got called up to help the hapless major league club, but this time contributed quite nicely, outslugging primary backstop Jason Castro, and much of the bench besides
1995 - 2000 Auburn Doubledays logo
3 Craig Corrado Cards 1st Base
14th round pick in the June 2007 draft committed 29 errors at Greeneville that year, but also led the club in stolen bases. Led Lexington in total bases in 2008, while finishing second in average. Named the Legends' Offensive Player of the Month in May of '08, Corrado was assigned to High A Lancaster for 2009 and spent the season as their starting second baseman, though the results were middling at best
Lancaster JetHawks logo
56 Carlos Correa CardsShortstop
Lancaster JetHawks logo
The organization's first number-one-overall June pick since Phil Nevin played only 11 games for 2012 Greeneville after signing, but slugged .600 and only made the one Error. Spent all of 2013 at Quad Cities as the youngest player in the Midwest League, and was named River Bandits Player of the Month twice, while also being named to the Midseason and Postseason League All-Star squads. Led the MWL in OPS, and finished over .400 in OBP, good for second on the circuit. 2014 was just as successful at High A Lancasrter . . . until he broke his fibula in June, and had his season ended. The numbers he posted until then were quite good, as he once again OBPed over .400 and slugged over .500, while fielding his position quite well. Began 2015 at Corpus Christi and led the Texas League in Doubles through April
2 Jorge Correa Cards Pitcher
Correa went 1 - 0 with a 20.65 in six games for the 1992 Auburn Astros. Think about that for a second. On the major league level, for example, only Dean Wilkins in the entire history of the Houston National League franchise, had a career ERA above even 10.00 and still managed to maintain a winning record. He was 2 - 1 with an 11.25 in 1991. Although now that I look further, I see that JR Richard did go 1 - 0 with a 13.50 for the '72 squad . . . .
1983 - 1994 Auburn Astros logo
3 Chris Correnti Cards Trainer
Trained in '90 in Osceola and '91 and '92 at Burlington. Would later be named trainer for the Boston Red Sox, and after he was fired there, became Pedro Martinez' personal trainer
1991 - 1992 Burlington Astros logo
5 Jim Corsi Cards
Relief Pitcher
 
After spinning a 0.00 ERA with no record through two games at Tucson in 1991, the Astros promoted Corsi in mid-April to their major league club, and he was their primary righthanded long reliever the rest of the way, going 0 - 5 with a 3.71.toros.jpg Houston Astros 1965 - 1993 logo
1 Jorge Cortes Card Outfielder
Corpus Christi Hooks logo
Minor league free agent signed in December of '05 scored the title-clinching run for Corpus Christi in the fourteenth inning of game four of the 2006 Texas League Championship Series
62 Jarred Cosart Cards
Pitcher
 
The first Jarred who spelled his name with two R's in team history, Cosart was acquired in the deal that sent Hunter Pence away in July of 2011. Groundball pitcher who posted a 1.27 WHIP at Corpus in '11 got a slow start in 2012, but still managed to finish with a 3.52 at AA Corpus and a 2.60 at AAA OKC. Texas League Pitcher of the Week June 25, 2012. Surpassed Darryl Kile by pitching 6-1/3 no-hit innings to begin his major league debut on July 12, 2013, finishing with two hits over eight scoreless innings in getting the win over the Tampa Rays. Member of the Houston starting staff to begin 2014. Awful out of the gate, he was fantastic in May and June before running his mouth off on Twitter and thereby running afoul of stentorian management. Shortly thereafter traded to the Marlins for Jake Marisnick
Corpus Christi Hooks logo
2 Rob Cosby Cards Infield
Minor league free agent signed by the Astros in January of 2008 played at Corpus that summer, hitting .222 in 102 games
Corpus Christi Hooks logo
12 Mike Cosgrove Cards
Pitcher
 
Much like my personal fave, Curt Schilling, Cosgrove gave up a hit in a ninth inning after relieving a pitcher or pitchers who had thrown no-hit ball through eight. Cosgrove ruined the magic September 4, 1974, when Don Wilson, bidding for his third no-hitter, trailed the Reds 2 - 1 through the penultimate inning. Manager Preston Gomez brought in Cosgrove, Cosgrove gave up a single to Tony Perez, the Astros lost, and what could have been a game everyone remembers has now instead been totally forgotten.

Tri City ValleyCats logo
6 Jamaine Cotton Cards Pitcher
15th round pick in the June '10 draft from St. Thomas, USVI is probably the only Jamaine in professional baseball history. Posted an 8.36 at Greeneville in 2010. Split 2011 between G-ville and Tri-City and actually pitched better in the NYPL. Stayed with the V-Cats for 2012, and despite a 3.31 ERA that was in the team's bottom quartile, Cotton did show a respectable 32:15 K/BB for the New York-Penn league runners up. 4.77 ERA at Quad Cities in 2013

7 Harry Craft Cards
Manager
 
Very respectable finish in Colts' first year, then got no better; replaced by Lum Harris September 19, 1964--with 13 games left in the season. I am now also finding that Craft, much earlier in his career, caught a flyball for the last out in Vander Meer's second no-hitter.

6 Luis Cruz Cards Pitcher
9th round pick in the June 2008 draft began at Greeneville that year, and was 1 - 1 over seven starts with 2.28 ERA. Repeated there in 2009 and finished 1 - 4 with a 6.75. Co-led the 2010 Lexington Legends in wins with 8. Split 2011 between Lexington and Lancaster with all the good work coming during his stay in Kentucky. Led the 2012 Lexington Legends in K's, while finishing second on the team only to Organization Pitcher of the Year Foltynewicz in Wins and Innings Pitched. Made 18 Starts for Lancaster in 2013, and 2 for Corpus Christi, posting a 4.56 ERA overall
