There are some familiar names on this list, with the major league depth on the active roster. Reed and White are just waiting for their chance while Davis has been given his chance with Josh Reddick‘s staph infection. Perez is the interesting one to watch in this group. He could have been drafted as a pitcher, but instead, the Astros drafted him as a third baseman.
Hernandez was drafted in the fifth round of the 2016 draft, is batting .262/ eight homers/ 38 RBI in High-A ball. He’s a switch-hitting above-average third baseman. He was also able to demonstrate his catching ability last year. Cesar had a lot of playing time with the Astros this spring with Yuli Gurriel‘s injury.
