Houston Astros Prospects Organization All-Stars Announced for 2022 Minor League Baseball Season

Minor League Baseball named the Houston Astros organizational All-Stars for the 2022 season Wednesday. Among the 12 players named, three were in the dugout in October and November for the Astros’ second World Series.

Catcher: Yainer Diaz

Starting the season with Double-A Corpus Christi, Díaz crushed the Texas League, posting an .871 OPS with nine home runs and 13 doubles in 57 games. The 24-year-old catcher continued that into Sugar Land with a .929 OPS and 16 home runs in just nine fewer games.

Díaz was promoted to the Major Leagues in September, and although he only appeared in six games, he stuck around on the taxi squad in the postseason. After being acquired from Cleveland at the 2021 trade deadline, Díaz was still in Single-A, showing how quickly he’s advanced through Houston’s system. He is currently playing in LIDOM.
