In Review: Gulf Coast League Astros

So later on - perhaps today - we'll start the In Review section of the posting schedule, in which we recap the minor-league season, player-by-player. This is an effort to get a jump on the posting as soon as the season ends, as we barely got to Lancaster last year before Spring Training started.

But right now we take a look at the GCL Astros as a team.

The GCL Astros finished the season 20-36, 17GB of the GCL Marlins, and 4GB of the GCL Yankees for the worst record in the GCL.

Home: 11-16
Away: 9-20

It should be pointed out that the average age of the GCL Astros' batters was 18.8 - below the League average of 19.6.

Runs: 216 (15th out of 16), 3.86 per game
Doubles: 74 (16th)
Triples: 20 (2nd)
Homers: 11 (16th)
Stolen Bases: 55 (11th) - 32 caught stealing - 63.2% SB rate
Strikeouts: 437 (7th-most)
Walks: 162 (12th)

Batting Average: .232 (15th)
OBP: .305 (15th)
SLG: .311 (16th)
OPS: .616 (16th)

The GCL Astros' pitchers fared about the same, with their 19.6-year old average almost a full year below the 20.5 average for pitchers in the GCL.

Runs allowed/game: 5.71 (16th)
ERA: 4.38 (16th)
WHIP: 1.49 (16th)
Strikeouts: 415 (12th)

Offensive Employee of the Year: It could feasibly go to Rafael Valenzuela, but he only played 16 games for the GCL Astros before getting promoted. So the Offensive Employee of the Year goes to Jordan Scott.

Pitcher of the Year: Jose Perdomo. In 11 starts, he allowed 11 earned runs, and posted 10.5 K/9, and a 3.45 K:BB ratio.
