CARDS I HAVE PLAYER POSITION REMARKS
1 Derek Dace Card Pitcher
Lefty was fourth in the NY-Penn League for 1996 in wins with nine, and I'm thinking--though I'm not sure--that he was the PTBNL when the Astros picked up Andujar Cedeño from Detroit on September 11, 1996

Houston Astros 1965 - 1993 logoOne Year Wonder set -- (Non) No-hitter for the Moultrie Colt .22's in '63 RIP
2 Casey Daigle Cards
Pitcher
 
Major leaguer who had appeared in 20 games for the D-Backs in the mid 2000's pitched at Round Rock in 2009, and led the team in appearances, while posting a 4 - 3 record, with a 2.91 ERA. Called up in 2010 when Chris Sampson was placed on the DL June 1st, Daigle pitched in 13 games for Houston, and posted an 11.32 ERA before being sent back to RRx on the 21st of July. Led RRx that year in games finished and was second to Roy Corcoran in saves with 8

3 Gershon Dallas Cards Outfield
Asheville & Osceola 90 - 91. Went five for six with two stolen bases in an SAL game vs. the Myrtle Beach Blue Jays July 23, 1990
Asheville Tourists logo
5 Brian Dallimore Cards Infielder
1991 - 1999 Jackson Generals logo
As high as AA Jackson in '98; Led the '97 Quad City River Bandits in runs scored and stolen bases. I was listening on the radio April 29, 2004, when Dallimore made his major league debut for the San Francisco Giants, grounding out against Florida's Brad Penny. But because I had other things to do, I wasn't listening or watching the following day, when his first major league hit was a grand slam, off Dontrelle Willis. . . .
2 Zach Dando Cards Pitcher
32nd round pick in the June 2011 draft pitched at Greeneville and tied for the club lead in saves and posted a 1.00 WHIP. Repeated at Greeneville in 2012 at the age of 21 and went 4 - 0 with a 3.18 ERA (but no saves)
1991 - 1999 Jackson Generals logo
2 Andrew Darnell Cards Outfield
35th Round pick in 2005 played two years at Rookie Greeneville and got a quick callup to Single A Lexington at the end of '07

Houston Astros 1965 - 1993 logo41st round pick in June 2011 was sent to Greeneville, where he led the club in OBP, SLG, OPS, RBI, doubles and homers--but somehow wasn't named team MVP. Also one of five 2011 G-ville Astros to strike out exactly 51 times. Injury limited Davidson to 9 games and a .156 average at Tri-City in 2012
19 Kevin Davidson CardsCatcher
28th Round Selection of the Astros in the June '02 Draft hit .221 at Martinsville that year. Invited back for 2003, he responded with a .331 average, and was named team MVP. This got him a bunch of major league rookie and prospect card appearances in 2004, but a series of promotions did not go well. Received a promotion to AAA Round Rock during the 2007 season, but was later released.

Not the Cliff Davis who no-hit El Paso in 1963, but rather the Astros' sixth round pick in the June '03 draft who went 1- 0 with a 7.50 ERA over 12 games in the Appalachian League that year, and followed that with two equally nondescript years.

2 Bob Dean Cards Pitcher
Cedar Rapids Astros logoPaulo De Leonin blanking Danville 6 - 0. When they were done, they found that they'd pitched a combined seven-inning no-hitter. The date was July 25, 1973, and odds are, you weren't there.
7 Kevin Dean Cards Outfield
Dean, in 1987 named the second-best prospect in the Florida State League by Baseball America, was acquired by the Astros along with pitcher , in exchange for noted Jetsons fan Charley Kerfeld on April 29, 1990

3 Tony DeFrancesco Cards Manager
Asheville Tourists logo
Managed the 2011 Oklahoma City Redhawks, leading them to a fourth place finish at 68 - 75. Came back to OKC for 2012 and did marginally better, until stepping in on an interim basis for the fired Brad Mills as skipper of the big club in late August. Returned to OKC for 2013, when he lead the Redhawks to a PCL American South Divisional title before the Redhwaks got swept in the first round
9 Ivan De Jesus Cards Coach
Kissimmee Cobras logoShortstop most famous with the Phillies I guess coached a few years at Osceola and Kissimmee, then became minor league infield and baserunning co-ordinator for two years. Most recently, manager for the last Astros affiliate at Lexington in 2011
2 Jesus De La Rosa Cards
?
 
Doubled and scored a run for the '75 big club in three at bats; but those darn 75 Iowa Oaks cards--they don't give a position! I wouldn't know WHAT Jesus did, if it weren't for the fact that he played those three games for Houston and is thus listed in the Media Guide under the All-Time Roster. . .Plus, I can give him the cool icon next door.
Iowa Oaks logo
4 Joey De Leon Cards Pitcher
18th Pick in the 2001 Draft began at Martinsville that year, and led the club in strikeouts. Led the 2003 New York-Penn League in innings, and the that year's Tri-City team in ERA Martinsville Astros 1999 logo
5 Jorge De Leon Cards
Shortstop/Pitcher
 
Martinsville Astros 1999 logo
Dominican infielder who made his US debut at Greeneville in 2008 played at Tri City and Lexington in '09. Converted to pitcher for 2010, he began the year as Tri-City's closer, but finished one behind Michael Ness in saves for the year. Still, posted a 0.64 ERA. Led Lexington in saves for 2011, and ended up with a fine 1.10 WHIP for the year. Switched to starter in 2012 at Lancaster, but the move did not agree: 2 - 9 record, 7.70 ERA and a 1.80 WHIP. Pitched at three levels in 2013, making three Starts in 29 Games at Corpus, pitching 12 times for OKC, and 11 times for Houston, where he posted a 5.40 ERA. Pitched at three levels in 2014, including at Houston, and the work at Corpus and OKC was pretty good. The work at Houston less so. Placed on waivers October 9, and picked up by the A's

Martinsville Astros 1999 logo'82 - 84 pitched with the Padres, but by '88 he was at AAA Tucson
3 Paulo De Leon Cards Pitcher
The cards were short prints, they were in black and black, and the variable sizing might have made them look a little cheesy, but thanks to TCMA, Mr. de Leon's somewhat obscure career HAS been chronicled

2 Pedro De Leon Cards Pitcher
Proof that not EVERYONE from San Pedro De Macoris became a Hall of Fame shortstop--De Leon spent two years in the low minors as a pitcher Houston Astroslogo

11 Collin Delome Cards Outfield
Outfielder from Lamar University, and 5th-round pick in June 2007, was the highest pick in that ill-fated draft to sign. Went on to finish second on the club in average, and first in slugging. while being named a New York-Penn League All-Star. Began '08 at Lexington, but was promoted to Salem midseason after slugging .513 in the Sally league. Hit 20 homers for AA Corpus in '09, and was named a midseason Texas League All-Star. Hit .224 for Round Rock in 2010 but co-led the team in homers and paced it in triples

King of the throw to first; the Hall of Fame campaign may have been a joke, but the eight strikeouts to start a game definitely wasn't.
50 Delino DeShields, Jr. CardsCenterfield
#1 Draft Pick and son of the guy you'd think led the 2010 Greeneville Astros in hitting and the 2011 Lexington Legends in Stolen Bases. Organizational Player of the Year in 2012, when he split the year between A Lexington and High A Lancaster, hitting .287 with 12 home runs and 101 Stolen Bases. Was also named MVP of Lancaster's victorious Cal League Championship Series. Spent all of 2013 at Lancaster, and finished third in the Cal League in Runs, second in Triples, and second in Stolen Bases, while OBPing .405. Led the 2014 Texas League in Stolen Bases while playing for Corpus, but Hit only .236. Astros left him exposed in the Rule V draft, and the Rangers bit
Lancaster JetHawks logo
1 Chris Devenski Card Pitcher
Acquired from the White Sox in the trade that sent Brett Myers away, Devenski pitched one of the greatest games in Astros minor league history on September 1, 2012, when he no-hit the Rome Braves while striking out 16 and walking one. Devenski began 2013 at High A Lancaster, but after a 7.88 ERA posted there, was sent down to Quad Cities in early July. After splitting time as a starter and out of the bullpen in the Cal league, Devsnki was a starter exclusively for the River Bandits, and he righted the ship somewhat, walking only 9 in his 8 starts, and putting up a 4.36 ERA

2 Kyle DeYoung Cards Pitcher
Lexington Legends logo
31st Round pick in '06 gave up a ton of hits at Tri-City in '06, but showed a good K/Bb ratio, so they brought him back in '07, and placed him at Lexington, where he did a bit better.
