HOUSTON, TX – SEPTEMBER 12: Tony Kemp
HOUSTON, TX – SEPTEMBER 12: Tony Kemp /

Tony Kemp

While Kemp probably would have been on the opening day roster for most clubs, Kemp spent this season with the stacked Fresno Grizzlies. Kemp played the Altuve role for the club, hitting .329/.375/.470 and swiping 24 bases. The 25-year-old has seen some time with the big league club and has value just about anywhere in baseball. His career should be a fun one to follow.

Jack Mayfield

The journeyman and fan favorite had a terrific 2017 season. The utility type infielder played all over the infield over two levels, AA and AAA. Mayfield slashed .283/.327/.500 and slugged 20 bombs with 67 RBI’s. If Mayfield doesn’t get a chance in the majors for Houston, he will get it elsewhere.

Honorable Mentions

Ryne Birk

The former Texas A&M Aggie has played well since joining the Astros farm system. His .266/.325/.430 line is solid, and his 15 home runs aren’t too shabby either.
