Astros Minor League Recap (8/7): Haders gonna Hate

Where we talk about the best farm system in baseball, newly-acquired prospects, a good pitching prospect with an ERA over 5.00, the two best friends that anyone could ever have, and walk-up music.

Astros Minor League Recap (7/31): Trade Deadline

The Astros farm system still played games on the day of the Trade Deadline, and won most of them, like usual.

Astros Minor League Recap (7/24)

Astros minor league affiliates went 7-0 on Wednesday night, improving their MiLB-best winning percentage. Dig in for some good performances, some not so good performances, some walk-off home runs, a pie in the face, and Neil Diamond's huge-ass ears.

Astros Minor League Recap: July 18, 2013

Lance McCullers out-dueled Zach Eflin on Wednesday night.

Astros Minor League Recap: Free Jarred Cosart

The promotion of Jarred Cosart officially signals a new era in Houston Astros baseball.

Byron Buxton is going to be a stud. Carlos Correa is also going to be a stud.

Astros Minor League Recap (6/26): Preston Tucker

Astros fans are excited about Preston Tucker, but is he a repeat of Jon Gaston? Maybe. Maybe not.

Astros Minor League Recap: Meet Michael Feliz

There's a 19-year-old pitching prospect in the Astros system who stands 6'4" and touches 97 with his fastball, yet not many people know who he is. He dominated in his 2013 debut, so I wrote about him. Do yourself a favor, bookmark his player page on

Astros Minor League Recap (6/12): Springer, Correa

A brief look at George Springer's declining strikeout rate, Carlos Correa versus Manny Machado, and the notable statlines of the Astros Top Prospects.

Astros Minor League Recap: June 5, 2013

All three Astros minor league affiliates lost on Wednesday night, but fear not – Thursday is DRAFT DAY!!!

UPDATED 2013 MLB Draft Profile: Aaron Judge, OF

No, that's not Rob Gronkowski playing outfield. It's not Blake Griffin either. It's Aaron Judge, who's built like an NBA Power Forward or NBA Tight end. He has massive raw power, and it's begun showing up in games.

UPDATED 2013 MLB Draft Profile: Michael Lorenzen

Michael Lorenzen is the best defensive outfielder in the entire draft. Can he hit enough to showcase his defensive talents?

2013 MLB Draft Profile: Colin Moran, 3B, UNC

Colin Moran doesn't fit the typical number one overall pick profile, but will that stop the Astros from taking him if he agrees to sign for a huge discount?

2013 MLB Draft Profile: Jon Denney, C

Jon Denney is the best-hitting catcher in this year's draft. It'd be a dream come true if he magically fell to the Astros in the second round

UPDATED MLB Draft 2013 Profile: Rowdy Tellez, 1B

Rowdy Tellez is a big dude with big power. The left-handed firstbaseman is an intriguing candidate for the Astros in the second or third round.

2013 MLB Draft Profile: Travis Demeritte, SS

Travis Demeritte is a legitimate candidate for the Astros second round pick.

UPDATED 2013 MLB Draft Profile: Cavan Biggio, 3B

Son of Craig obviously has Astros fans intrigued, but he has a lot of questions as a prospect.

2013 MLB Draft Profile: Jason Monda, OF, Wash.

Jason Monda is probably the lowest-ranked prospect we will profile at TCB.

2013 MLB Draft Profile: Ryan Boldt, OF, HS

Ryan Boldt – a first-round talent who will probably go in the second round. Sound familiar, Astros fans? Could he be this year's Lance McCullers or Rio Ruiz?

UPDATED 2013 MLB Draft Profile: Justin Williams OF

Justin Williams came into 2013 as one of the top HS prospects. A mediocre spring has dropped his stock, and he's now expected to be drafted much later than originally thought.

Astros Minor League Recap (5/29)

Talking two of the Astros Top Prospects, Jonathan Singleton and George Springer. Not all is rainbows and lollipops with the latter.

UPDATED 2013 MLB Draft Profile: Cord Sandberg, OF

Cord Sandberg is a toolsy outfield prospect, but a scholarship to play quarterback in the SEC creates a lot of uncertainty with the future of his baseball carrer.

UPDATED 2013 MLB Draft Profile: Billy McKinney, OF

Billy McKinney has one of the best present and future hit tools in this year's high school class. Even though he doesn't have All-Star upside, his bat makes him a really good prospect.

UPDATED 2013 MLB Draft Profile: Adam Frazier, SS

Adam Frazier is the cut from the same cloth as Astros prospect, Nolan Fontana, only not as good.

UPDATED 2013 MLB Draft Profile: Alex Balog, RHP

Alex Balog has solidified himself as a mid-second round prospect, with rumors that he could go as early as the first.

UPDATED 2013 MLB Draft Profile: Buck Farmer, RHP

Buck Farmer is expected to go within the first five rounds of the 2013 MLB Draft after a dominating senior season at Georgia Tech.

2013 MLB Draft Profile: Dustin Driver, RHP

Dustin Driver began the year as one of the top HS pitching prospects. His stock has fallen significantly since.
