Houston Astros Minor League All-Star Team


Houston Astros Minor League All-Star Team

With the MLB All-Star game coming up and the other minor league All-Star games going on, I think it would be a good idea to come up with the Astros minor league All-Star team. For the sake of the article, I will not use any players promoted to the Astros this season.

Here is the Astros minor league All-Star team!


Jacob Nottingham – Nottingham has enjoyed a breakout season for the Quad Cities River Bandits. Drafted in 2013, he has dominated in his first taste of full season ball. Check out my interview with Nottingham here: Nottingham Interview

2015 Stats: 56 G, .330 BA/.387 OBP/.560 SLG, 18 2B, 10 HR, 44 RBI, 16 BB/48 K

First Base

A.J. Reed – Reed was drafted as an advanced college bat and he has dominated the California League to this point. He actually finished second in the California League homerun derby too.

2015 Stats: 68 G, .335 BA/.442 OBP/.616 SLG, 14 2B, 3 3B, 18 HR, 65 RBI, 50 BB/66 K

Second Base

Tony Kemp – Not much debate here. Kemp has moved through the system since being drafted showing a nice hit tool while drawing walks and stealing bases.

2015 Stats: 63 G, .363 BA/.455 OBP/.429 SLG, 50 R, 11 2B, 3B, HR, 28 RBI, 21 SB, 40 BB/30 K

Third Base

J.D. Davis – Davis was drafted a round after Reed and they have formed the Astros minor league version of the Bash Brothers. While it is Lancaster, Davis has showed nice power.

2015 Stats: 62 G, .289 BA/.362 OBP/.477 SLG, 14 2B, 2 3B, 10 HR, 41 RBI, 24 BB/76 K


Jack Mayfield – Correa obviously dominated the minors but we will leave him out since he was promoted. Mayfield has put together a nice season and has only made three errors all season.

2015 Stats: 57 G, .308 BA/.369 OBP/.474 SLG, 10 2B, 4 3B, 7 HR, 39 RBI, 19 BB/38 K


Derek Fisher – Drafted as a high potential college outfielder, he has shown his ability over two different levels. In his A+ debut he went 4-f0r-6 with 2B, 3 HR, 12 RBI.

2015 Stats: 60 G, .291 BA/.371 OBP/.500 SLG, 57 R, 14 2B, 2 3B, 11 HR, 50 RBI, 18 SB, 30 BB/59 K

Brett Phillips – Phillips broke onto the scene last year and has continued the success this season. He is showing a ton of power in the hitter friendly Lancaster and will be promoted to AA Corpus Christi following his appearance in the A+ All-Star game.

2015 Stats: 66 G, .320 BA/.379 OBP/.588 SLG, 68 R, 19 2B, 7 3B, 15 HR, 53 RBI, 8 SB, 22 BB/64 K

Jon Kemmer – Kemmer showed nice power in Lancaster last season and that has translated well to AA this season evident with his .520 slugging percentage.

2015 Stats: 44 G, .313 BA/.392 OBP/.520 SLG, 7 2B, 8 HR, 29 RBI, 16 BB/46 K

Designated Hitter

Jon Singleton – Singleton and Reed could go back and forth between 1B/DH. He had some struggles last season but he has put together a great season so far in AAA.

2015 Stats: 68 G, .280 BA/.389 OBP/.537 SLG, 17 2B, 2 3B, 15 HR, 62 RBI, 47 BB/61 K

Staring Pitchers

Joe Musgrove – Musgrove has moved through three different levels this season. He has video game numbers this season walking only three batters in 67+ innings. Check out my interview with him here: Musgrove interview

2015 Stats: 9-1, 2.13 ERA, 67.2 IP, 62 H, 16 ER, 3 BB, 71 K, 0.4 BB/9, 9.4 K/9, 23.6 SO/BB

Chris Devenski – Devenski has been flat out dominant this season in Corpus, sporting a 1.23 ERA in 66 innings pitched this year.

2015 Stats: 7-1, 1.23 ERA, 66 IP, 47 H, 9 ER, 16 BB, 55 K, 2.2 BB/9, 7.5 K/9

Brian Holmes – Holmes has flown under the radar but continues to pitch well at every level. He has struck out 11 guys per 9 innings this season.

2015 Stats: 3-3, 2.61 ERA, 58.2 IP, 44 H, 17 ER, 20 BB, 72 K, 3.1 BB/9, 11.0 K/9

Other deserving: Thomas Shirley, Aaron West, Josh Hader, Daniel Mengden, Akeem Bostick, Francis Martes

The Houston Astros system might be the deepest in all of baseball which made some of these choices difficult. It is a good problem to have though. Any thoughts or changes?
