The Houston Astros currently only have two players wearing an “H” on their hat in the National Baseball Hall of Fame. That in all likelihood won’t be changing with this year’s inductees.

But there are plenty of former Astros on this year’s ballot, some of whom have a very legitimate shot to get in if not this year, than in the coming years.

The former Astros on the Hall of Fame ballot are the following in order of most percentage of votes to least:

  1. Curt Schilling 71.1 percent (Final year on ballot)
  2. Roger Clemens 61.6 percent (Final year on ballot)
  3. Billy Wagner 46.4 percent (Sixth year on ballot)
  4. Jeff Kent 32.4 percent (Eighth year on ballot)
  5. Andy Pettitte 13.7 percent (Third year on ballot)
  6. Bobby Abreu 8.7 percent (Second year on ballot)

For those unaware of the rules, a player needs 75 percent of the votes submitted by the Baseball Writers Association of America within 10 years since they were active or they are removed from the ballot. Here are the former Astros still on the ballot.
