CARDS I HAVE PLAYER POSITION REMARKS
1 Mike Hacker Card Pitcher
5'9" lefthander was a 25th round pick in the June 2008 draft and excellent in relief for the 2008 ValleyCats, with a 2.73 ERA and a .187 BAA. Pitched at Lexington in 2009, with a little less success. Tri City ValleyCats logo
14 Josh Hader Cards Pitcher

Martinsville Astros 1999 logo
12 Dave Hajek Cards
2nd Base
 
1990 Sally League All-Star rose to Tucson by '94 and got serious consideration in 1996 for the third base spot previously held by the departedDave Magadan. The cold reality is that Hajek was 3 for 12 in 13 games with three runs scored over the '95 and '96 seasons. Went 2 fvor 3 with a double, 2 RBI and a run scored in Mark Petkovsek's no-hitter on May 16, 1994.

25 John Halama Cards
Pitcher
 
Houston Astros 1994 - 1999 logo
On October 1, 1998, became the Player to be Named Later in the Randy Johnson trade. Up and down with the Mariners, but did pitch a perfect game in the PCL--not by any means an easy thing to do.
1 Adam Hale Card Pitcher
Greeneville Astros logo32nd round draft pick pitched at Greeneville in 2006
1 Chad Hale Card Pitcher
Pitched for the River Bandits in 1997 following his acquisition from the Red Sox organization. After that--who knows?

Righthander inished tenth in ERA (2.44) in the 2006 New York-Penn League. The only member of the 2006 ValleyCats to be on the Opening Day roster for the '07 version. Got a promotion to Lexington in August. Nice 2.68 ERA and nice 1.14 WHIP for the '08 Salem Avalanche. Pitched at High A Lancaster in 2009.
Lancaster JetHawks logo
2 Robert Hallgren Cards Outfield
Mid \'80s Daytona Beach Astros logo
Spent '76 with Covington and Dubuque; topped out in '77 with Cocoa, before moving on to the Rangers' organization. Hallgren "had some pop for a small guy" per his teammate with the 1975 Covington Astros, Mike Lally.
2 Kyle Hallock Cards Pitcher
Lefthander out of Kent State was # 10 pick in the June 2011 draft, and posted a fine 1.22 WHIP thereafter at Tri-City
Tri City ValleyCats logos
4 Miles Hamblin Cards Catcher
12th round pick in the previous June's draft finished third on the 2011 Tri-City ValleyCats in total bases and was their primary catcher. Limited to two early April Games with Lexington in 2012, Hamblin returned in 2013 at Quad Cities, and mostly DHed, serving as a First Baseman 14 times and as a Cattcher twice. He hit .202 in that limited duty and was released in late June
Tri City ValleyCats logos
14 Mark Hamilton Cards Pitcher
In his short career in the Astros organization, this TCU grad has played infield at Martinsville in 2000, played the Outfield at Michigan in 2001, pitched at Michigan the same year, pitched at Tri-City and Michigan in 2002, and pitched at Salem and Lexington in 2003. Results at all positions so far have been mixed, although Topps is certainly all over him, and he was a Midwest League All-Star in 2001
Michigan BattleCats logo
2 Milo Hamilton Cards Broadcaster
Houston Astros 1965 - 1993 logo
Radio voice of the club from 1985 called Mike Scott's division-winning no-no, Darryl Kile's no-hitter, The six-pitcher no-hitter at Yankee Stadium, and Biggio's 3000th hit
1 Ryan Hamilton Card Pitcher
12th round pick in the June 2000 draft: one short season at Martinsville, then goodbye . . .

Mike Hampton Cards
Pitcher
 
Houston Astros 1994 - 1999 logo
Bulldog hit .311 AND won 22 in 99; becoming the first guy since Bob Gibson in 1970 to win 20 and hit over .300. This season as I'll argue, was an aberration almost as wild as Mark Whiten (lifetime .259) hitting 4 homers and driving in 12 RBI in a single game. Returned to the fold as previously damaged goods for 2009--trips to the DL and an ERA over 5.00 were the predictable results.
3 Tim Hamulack Cards Pitcher
Michigan BattleCats logoLefty pitched well at three stops between 1997 and 1999, leading Michigan in ERA for 1999. What'd we do, trade him away?
2 Buddy Hancken Cards
Coach
 
Managed the Texas League Amarillo Sonics to a pair of second place finishes in 1966 and 1967, then became Bench coach in Houston under the Harry Walker regime, 1968-1972

Lexington Legends logoRighthander from Pearl Lagoon, Nicaragua had a 2.18 to 1 K/BB ratio for Tri-City in 2002 and a 1.65 ratio for Lexington in 2003
46 JA Happ Cards
Pitcher
 
Acquired from the Phillies July 29, 2010 in the deal that sent away Roy Oswalt, Happ was immediately inserted into the rotation, and went 5 - 4 with a 3.75 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP. But that was the best it ever got: at turns inconsistent, or just plain bad, Happ was sent to the Blue Jays in a ten-player deal five months before his 30th birthday by the wheeler/dealer Luhnow
Houston Astros logo, 2000 - logo
2 Carroll Hardy Cards
Outfield
 
Played halfback for the 1955 San Francisco '49ers, bounced around the majors for a while, then hit .194 for the 1963-64 Colts. Pepsi included him in their 1963 set. Houston Colt .45's logo
5 Larry Hardy Cards Pitcher/Coach
Charleston Charlies logo
Acquired with Joe McIntosh in the trade that sent Doug Rader packing to San Diego, Hardy pitched in 15 games at Houston in '76 and got an SSPC for his trouble. By '78, he was doing more coaching than pitching at AAA Charleston
2 Don Harkness Cards Infield
Pitched for two really bad Florida State league affiliates in '77 and '78, at Cocoa in '77 under Jimmy Johnson and at Daytona in '78 under Leo Posada

PETE HARNISCH Cards
Pitcher
 
Two great and two slightly less than average seasons for the Astros. 1991 All-Star, during a season in which he would lead the NL in BAA at .212, and H/9IP at just over seven, and pitched a scoreless sixth inning in the interleague tilt at Toronto. Famously involved in six 1 - 0 games during that 1991 season, winning two, losing two and gaining two no-decisions. 1992 Opening Day starter and loser. Led the NL in BAA and H/9IP again in 1993. Struck out the side on nine pitches vs. the Phillies on September 6, 1991, and did it in the ninth inning. Harnisch is thereby one of nine pitchers in MLB history to have accomplished the nine pitch/3K thing in the ninth inning, and is one of only four starters. Jim Bunning and Ron Guidry had done it prior to Harnisch; Trevor Wilson of the Giants did it subsequently, ironically vs. the Astros. Harnisch was later screwed by the Mets and chewing tobacco both.

2 Justin Harper Cards Pitcher
Tri City ValleyCats logo

4 Lum Harris Cards
Manager
 
1980's Houston Astros logo
70 - 105 as skipper of the Houston club in 1964 and 1965; Harris is thus last on any list of Houston managers ranked by winning percentage, and second to last on any list ranked by wins (in front of only interim one-game-winner Salty Parker).
1 Reggie Harris Card Pitcher
Played professional football for the Seattle Seahawks, in the majors for the Phillies, and in 1998 for the New Orleans Zephyrs
New Orleans Zephyrs banner
14 Rusty Harris Cards Infield/Coach
Debuted at Auburn in 1987, and actually hit .294 during a partial season at AAA Tucson in 1990. Never hit higher than .264 otherwise, and his last playing year was 1992 for the Jackson Generals. Coached in 1994 at Auburn and 1996 at Jackson. . .
1991 - 1999 Jackson Generals logo
6 CHUCK HARRISON Cards
1st Base
 
Even though the back of his 1967 Topps # 8 says different, Opening Day in 1966; hit .248 in three years for the Astros. Astros Shooting Star logo
5 Billy Hart Cards Infield
Salem Avalanche logo
Fifth round draft pick only played ten games at Tri-city that summer due to injury, but did well in the limited action, hitting .282 with a .364 OBP. Edged for the 2007 Carolina League batting title, hitting .305405 to Einertson's .304933. Hit .260 with 23 doubles in an injury-shortened campaign at Corpus in '08

Asheville Tourists logo
17 Dean Hartgraves Cards
Pitcher
 
Threw a 7-inning no-hitter for the Asheville Tourists on his 22nd birthday, August 12, 1988, then threw another six-inning jewel for the Osceola Astros one year, nine days later. He thus became, with Juan Quintana and Don Wilson, one of only three players in organizational history to throw two no-hitters while toiling for the franchise. Made his major league debut at the age of 29 years 254 days, and won his first major league game only six days shy of his 30th birthday. 2 - 0 with a 3.91 in his 59-game stint with Houston in 1995 and 1996, before being left on waivers and claimed by the Braves in July of '96.
Osceola Astros 1985 - 1993 logo
1 Jason Hartman Card Strength Coach
I had never seen a card for a strength coach, 'til I saw this one . . . . Worked for Round Rock in 2007. Salem Avalanche logo
2 JC Hartman Cards
Infield
 
Houston Colt .45's uniform
In 1955, at the age of 21, was a teammate of Satchel Paige on the Kansas City Monarchs. Played 1961 for the AA Houston Buffaloes, then after starting 1962 at AAA Oklahoma City, was called up to the major league Houston club July 21, 1962. Looks like he did the same thing in 1963, started at AAA Oklahoma City, then got called up to Houston. Always claimed to make more money selling teammates haircuts than playing baseball

Osceola Astros 1985 - 1993 logoEighth round selection in the 1993 draft played at Auburn in 1993 and at Osceola in 1994

2 Michael Hasley Cards Pitcher

56 BILLY HATCHER Cards
Outfield
 
Houston Astros 2000 - logo
Opening Day 87 - 89, but what's really important here is that he hit the biggest home run in Houston history, his 14th inning solo shot off Jesse Orosco, that tied the sixth game of the '86 NLCS at 4, and assured that the 16-inning affair would be remembered as one of the greatest games ever.
17 Chris Hatcher CardsOutfield
Tucson Toros logo1991 Midwest League All-Star (and MVP of the midseason game) had reached AAA Tucson by 1994, but could advance no further. Good power, with 70 home runs and 20 triples through 95, but four seasons with more strikeouts than games? Ya gotta make him a
5 Grady Hatton Cards
Manager
 
His success at AAA Oklahoma City--two league titles in three years--got him a Minor League Manager of the Year award in 1965, and a promotion to Houston, but after a good first year showing for the 'Stros in 1966, did not translate to further success.
Tucson Toros logo
2 Michael Hauschild Cards Pitcher
6' 3" righthander struck out 39 in 30-1/3 at Greeneville in 2012 and led G-ville regulars in WHIP and ERA after being made the Astros 33rd round pick in the previous June's draft. Began 2013 at Quad Cities, and was 6- 1 with a 2.92 in early July when he was promoted to Lancaster, fo rwhom he went 3 - 3 with a 4.72 the rest of the way. Got three critical outs while giving up no hits in Game Four of the 2013 Cal League Finals vs. Inland Empire, as Lancaster became Cal League champions in Game Five

Played 1961 for the AA Houston Buffaloes, then after starting 1962 at AAA Oklahoma City, was called up to the major league Houston club July 21, 1962. Looks like he did the same thing in 1963, started at AAA Oklahoma City, then got called up to Houston. Always claimed to make more money selling teammates haircuts than playing baseball

Bulldog hit .311 AND won 22 in 99; becoming the first guy since Bob Gibson in 1970 to win 20 and hit over .300. This season as I'll argue, was an aberration almost as wild as Mark Whiten (lifetime .259) hitting 4 homers and driving in 12 RBI in a single game. Returned to the fold as previously damaged goods for 2009--trips to the DL and an ERA over 5.00 were the predictable results.

Pitcher
 
Two great and two slightly less than average seasons for the Astros. 1991 All-Star, during a season in which he would lead the NL in BAA at .212, and H/9IP at just over seven, and pitched a scoreless sixth inning in the interleague tilt at Toronto. Famously involved in six 1 - 0 games during that 1991 season, winning two, losing two and gaining two no-decisions. 1992 Opening Day starter and loser. Led the NL in BAA and H/9IP again in 1993. Struck out the side on nine pitches vs. the Phillies on September 6, 1991, and did it in the ninth inning. Harnisch is thereby one of nine pitchers in MLB history to have accomplished the nine pitch/3K thing in the ninth inning, and is one of only four starters. Jim Bunning and Ron Guidry had done it prior to Harnisch; Trevor Wilson of the Giants did it subsequently, ironically vs. the Astros. Harnisch was later screwed by the Mets and chewing tobacco both.

Then Juan Agosto betrayed Hennis by giving up two, thus setting up Dave Smith for his 53rd and final major league win. Hennis was left with a 0.00 ERA in 9-2/3 innings for his major league career. A little like Cameron Drew in that you gotta wonder whatever happened to Hennis. I mean, he spent the following year at Tucson, but the '91 Astros--young, talented, and a certainty to finish last--couldn't give Hennis a shot? And why wasn't he back for '92? Oh well, at least Hennis became part of a board game.

Inside the Park HR (!) vs Pirates 5/8/92. I will always remember a game Henry pitched April 19, 1992 vs. the Padres at home. Andy Benes (and he was real good, back then--he'd end the year with a 3.35 ERA) started for the Pads, and threw nine innings of shutout ball. But here's the thing: so did Henry. No-one then (or now) would put Butch Henry in the class of Andy Benes, but on that day, Henry would not yield. Benes gave up five hits and walked one, while Henry gave up seven hits and walked none. I seem to remember Henry being in trouble all day long, but he always worked out of it. The game went into extras tied at 0. Finally both managers pinch hit for their starters, and Xavier Hernandez ended up getting the decision over Rich Rodriguez as the Astros won 1 - 0 in 11. Henry would pitch in the majors til '99, but I would think that game was his finest hour.

AKA "Kike"," which I have to imagine is pronounced Kee-Kee. Sixth round pick in the June 2009 draft from Toa Baja, PR finished third in hits in the Gulf Coast League that summer and led the Astros in doubles and RBI, and was later named GCL MVP. Promoted to Tri-City, where he split time at second with Ben Orloff. Primarily a left-fielder at Lexington in 2011, where he OPSed .667. Most of 2012 was spent at Lancaster, where he finished third on the club in doubles and proved the second-most difficult Cal-Leaguer to strike out. Hit .236 with 13 Homers at Corpus in 2013.

11 Manny Hernandez Cards
Pitcher
 
Long minor league career began in the Gulf Coast league at Sarasota in 1979. Spent three years at Daytona Beach, including the '81 FSL championship year, and '83, when Hernandez was 10 - 3 with a 2.99 in 102.0 innings. After two and a half years at Tucson, Houston brought him up in June of 1986; he pitched in 9 games with a 2-3 record and a 3.90 ERA. In '87 he split time again between the PCL and the NL, but the major league ERA ballooned to 5.40. '88 was spent exclusively at Tucson, and at the end of the year he was signed as a minor-league free agent by the Mets. He pitched one inning for New York in 1989 . . .and there the trail ends. That's his story, and this is his one major-league card.

2 Pedro Hernandez Cards Outfield
Was an infielder when he played for the '78 Daytona squad, then got traded to Toronto in November of '78 with JJ Cannon and Mark Lemongello for Alan Ashby. Mostly played at AAA Syracuse and AA Knoxville, though he got 9 at bats for Toronto in '79 and '82. No hits, but did score a run. The Astros must've signed him back as a minor league free agent in the offseason after 1984, and he played outfield for the '85 Tucson Toros and Columbus Astros.

First and only major league start (as well as third and last major league appearance) came in the last game of the season October 3, 1990. Gave up only one hit (a sixth-inning double to Ron Oester) and no runs. Was removed after the sixth with the Astros leading 2 - 0. Then Juan Agosto betrayed Hennis by giving up two, thus setting up Dave Smith for his 53rd and final major league win. Hennis was left with a 0.00 ERA in 9-2/3 innings for his major league career. A little like Cameron Drew in that you gotta wonder whatever happened to Hennis. I mean, he spent the following year at Tucson, but the '91 Astros--young, talented, and a certainty to finish last--couldn't give Hennis a shot? And why wasn't he back for '92? Oh well, at least Hennis became part of a board game.

Henriquez had pitched in four games with a 4.50 ERA before the trade, and pitched in 15 games with an 8.55 for the Marlins in '98. I know Dave Dombrowski kinda had his hands tied behind his back, but the thing is, Oscar didn't even have good numbers in the minors . . .

24 Butch Henry Cards
Pitcher
 
Inside the Park HR (!) vs Pirates 5/8/92. I will always remember a game Henry pitched April 19, 1992 vs. the Padres at home. Andy Benes (and he was real good, back then--he'd end the year with a 3.35 ERA) started for the Pads, and threw nine innings of shutout ball. But here's the thing: so did Henry. No-one then (or now) would put Butch Henry in the class of Andy Benes, but on that day, Henry would not yield. Benes gave up five hits and walked one, while Henry gave up seven hits and walked none. I seem to remember Henry being in trouble all day long, but he always worked out of it. The game went into extras tied at 0. Finally both managers pinch hit for their starters, and Xavier Hernandez ended up getting the decision over Rich Rodriguez as the Astros won 1 - 0 in 11. Henry would pitch in the majors til '99, but I would think that game was his finest hour.

I know Dave Dombrowski kinda had his hands tied behind his back, but the thing is, Oscar didn't even have good numbers in the minors . . .

Greeneville Astros logo
Number Two pick in the June 2005 amateur draft out of Key West High began at Greeneville, but struggled some with the bat. Repeated in 2006, and struggled some more. Received a promotion to Lexington for '07, and struggled yet again. Traded to the Mets for lefthanded pitcher Josh Appell on November 28, 2007.
24 Butch Henry Cards
Pitcher
 
Inside the Park HR (!) vs Pirates 5/8/92. I will always remember a game Henry pitched April 19, 1992 vs. the Padres at home. Andy Benes (and he was real good, back then--he'd end the year with a 3.35 ERA) started for the Pads, and threw nine innings of shutout ball. But here's the thing: so did Henry. No-one then (or now) would put Butch Henry in the class of Andy Benes, but on that day, Henry would not yield. Benes gave up five hits and walked one, while Henry gave up seven hits and walked none. I seem to remember Henry being in trouble all day long, but he always worked out of it. The game went into extras tied at 0. Finally both managers pinch hit for their starters, and Xavier Hernandez ended up getting the decision over Rich Rodriguez as the Astros won 1 - 0 in 11. Henry would pitch in the majors til '99, but I would think that game was his finest hour.

Actually rather effective at times, especially during the 1998 season, when he picked up eight wins and had a 3.04 ERA, Henry had become, by the time was traded to the Giants for triple-A caliber pitcher Scott Linebrink in July of 2000, notable almost exclusively for his firestarting properties.

AKA "Kike"," which I have to imagine is pronounced Kee-Kee. Sixth round pick in the June 2009 draft from Toa Baja, PR finished third in hits in the Gulf Coast League that summer and led the Astros in doubles and RBI, and was later named GCL MVP. Promoted to Tri-City, where he split time at second with Ben Orloff. Primarily a left-fielder at Lexington in 2011, where he OPSed .667. Most of 2012 was spent at Lancaster, where he finished third on the club in doubles and proved the second-most difficult Cal-Leaguer to strike out. Hit .236 with 13 Homers at Corpus in 2013.
10 Federico Hernandez Cards Catcher
Switch-hitter from Caracas finished third in slugging on the 2008 Greeneville Astros then hit .231 for the 2009 Lexington Legends. Primary catcher for the 2010 Lancaster JetHawks, for whom he slugged .426. Split 2011 between Lancaster and Corpus christi, hitting above .200 for neither

11 Manny Hernandez Cards
Pitcher
 
Long minor league career began in the Gulf Coast league at Sarasota in 1979. Spent three years at Daytona Beach, including the '81 FSL championship year, and '83, when Hernandez was 10 - 3 with a 2.99 in 102.0 innings. After two and a half years at Tucson, Houston brought him up in June of 1986; he pitched in 9 games with a 2-3 record and a 3.90 ERA. In '87 he split time again between the PCL and the NL, but the major league ERA ballooned to 5.40. '88 was spent exclusively at Tucson, and at the end of the year he was signed as a minor-league free agent by the Mets. He pitched one inning for New York in 1989 . . .and there the trail ends. That's his story, and this is his one major-league card.

2 Pedro Hernandez Cards Outfield
Was an infielder when he played for the '78 Daytona squad, then got traded to Toronto in November of '78 with JJ Cannon and Mark Lemongello for Alan Ashby. Mostly played at AAA Syracuse and AA Knoxville, though he got 9 at bats for Toronto in '79 and '82. No hits, but did score a run. The Astros must've signed him back as a minor league free agent in the offseason after 1984, and he played outfield for the '85 Tucson Toros and Columbus Astros.

Pitcher
 
Houston Astros 1994 - 1999 logo
Fourth round pick in the '92 draft went 11 - 10 with a 2.27 for Quad City in 1993. Later he would go 2- 2 with a 1.87 for the '95 Jackson Generals. But this hard luck perhaps found its best expression in 1997, when - in a year where the average National League ERA was 4.00--he went 8 - 12 with a 3.52. Was more junky than hard luck in '99 and 2000, but Chris is more deserving of our compassion than our scorn. And of course, the hard luck continued after he was traded to the Tigers.

Pitcher
 
Drafted from the Braves organization by the Astros in the November 1966 minor league draft, this left handed reliever spent 1967 with Oklahoma City, and went 7 - 4 with a 2.04 while striking out 99 in 97 innings. That earned him a September callup, where he got into six games for Houston, winning one and losing none with a 4.50 ERA. He began 1968 at OKC again, getting called up and sent down again in June, then coming back up to stay mid-July. Overall, he was 3 - 1 with a 1.80 for the '89ers in '68, and 1 - 1 with a 7.71 for the Astros. Was 9 - 9 with a strong 2.57 for Oklahoma in 1969 before being traded to the Reds for Jim Beauchamp on December 16, 1969.

The first half swoon in 2004--not much aided by Andy Pettitte's unavailability--after huge preseason expectations cost him his job on July 14, 2004, when he was replaced by Jim Hickey. Eight years as pitching coach at the AAA level followed

4 Stan Hough Cards Coach
Acquired in the deal that sent minor league catcher Bruce Bochy to the Mets on February 11, 1981, Hough would approach the Mendoza line for AA Columbus in '81 and '82 as a player before being enlisted as a coach for Daytona in '83 and '84 and Tucson in '85.

Martinsville Astros 1999 logo
Originally picked out of high school by the Mariners in 1997, Houlton instead attended the University of the Pacific, and was then made the 11th round choice of the Astros in 2001. At Martinsville that year he was 5 - 4 with a 2.50. He had a complete game and a .240 BA against, and he was named one of the league's top prospects for his efforts. Was a Texas League Top Prospect after 2004, as well. Taken as Rule V draftee by the Dodgers after his 2004 season at Round Rock, Houlton won six games for Los Angeles in 2005.
1 Scott Houp Card Outfield
Never hit higher than .228 at three levels between 1983 and 1985. Was, however, a member of the 1984 South Atlantic League champions Asheville Tourists.

4 JR House Cards
Catcher
 
Signed as a minor league free agent January of 2006, House began the 2006 season at AA Corpus Christi, but got two promotions, and got into four games with Houston. Had an 1.121 OPS for Round Rock in 31 games. Signed again by the Astros for 2008, and was assigned to Round Rock, where he hit .306. Perhaps separated at birth from Koopa Paratroopa

2 Pat House Cards
Pitcher
 
Drafted from the Braves organization by the Astros in the November 1966 minor league draft, this left handed reliever spent 1967 with Oklahoma City, and went 7 - 4 with a 2.04 while striking out 99 in 97 innings. That earned him a September callup, where he got into six games for Houston, winning one and losing none with a 4.50 ERA. He began 1968 at OKC again, getting called up and sent down again in June, then coming back up to stay mid-July. Overall, he was 3 - 1 with a 1.80 for the '89ers in '68, and 1 - 1 with a 7.71 for the Astros. Was 9 - 9 with a strong 2.57 for Oklahoma in 1969 before being traded to the Reds for Jim Beauchamp on December 16, 1969.

Great name might have helped him pitch a seven-inning no-hitter for Gulf Coast in 1977, but didn't help him get higher than the Florida State League within the Astro organization. Neither did switching from pitching to position-playing after we traded him to Pittsburgh with others for Phil Garner. Had a 108.00 ERA for Buffalo in 1982.

Made his major league debut as a 25-year old in August of 1970 and hit .307 the rest of the way for Houston. Never pictured by himself for Topps, Howard did get onto the 1971 Topps and O-Pee-Chee # 102 Rookie Stars with Ken Forsch

Good Times Bad Times: Led off Opening Day '76 after a fairly solid 1975 campaign, in which he was eighth in the NL with 32 stolen bases and hit .283. Ever-declining production for the big club through 1978 left him at Charleston for 1979, and at Yucatan (Mexican League) for the duration of his career afer that.

Fast but straight. His appearance in the 1994 All-Star game after having started the year at AAA Tucson remains one of the most startling success stories in club history. But in the end, what everyone told him in the minors before 1994 was true: he needed a second effective out pitch, especially after his fastball began losing velocity in 1995. His rapid rise, however, produced some really cool cards.

In August of '95, the Astros traded him to the Royals for Pat Borders.
