Yordany came to HOU from SD where he was a highlight-reel outfielder. I believe last year they gave him the choice to either be released or to go down to low-A to see if he could pitch.

I'm disappointed b/c what a unique weapon it would have been to have had a reliever who could leave the mound for a few outs to be a defensive replacement in the OF, and return to the mound if necessary. :)
