Houston Astros Minor League Recap: April 22nd

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

#TheFutureIsBright. You will see me tweet that from time to time, including nights like last night. The Astros farm system had another sweep, and the Astros franchise had an organizational sweep with all teams from the MLB to Low-A taking home the win.

A few Astros prospects have had a great start to the season. Let’s check my daily checklist:

  • Did Jonathan Singleton hit a home run? – Yes
  • Did a Lancaster pitcher have another great outing? – Yes
  • Did Nolan Fontana draw a walk? – No, but he did go 4/7 in an extra inning game. I’ll take it.
  • Did all four Houston Astros Minor League teams win? – HELL YEA!
