Two former Valley Leaguers were named in the Houston Astros’ Organization All-Stars article over on milb.com- Tyler White (Haymarket 2010) and Chris Devenski (Woodstock 2011). White got his own write-up, while Devenski was an “honorable mention” at right-handed pitcher.
White was named the all-star at the Utility/DH position, along with the following writeup:
Not that you’d want to, but White can’t be ignored any longer. The 997th overall pick in the 2013 Draft, he had his biggest year yet with the Astros, hitting .325/.442/.496 with 14 homers and 99 RBIs at two stops. He walked more times (84) than he struck out (73) and was actually better at the higher level (.362/.467/.559), where he was named PCL Offensive Player of the Postseason by MiLB.com. The 25-year-old saw time at both first and third this season but is not incredibly adept at either spot. His bat did plenty of talking though.
Author Sam Dykstra is right- Tyler can’t be ignored any longer! Although Sam also hints at the potential problem with White; no one is sure where he can play, if anywhere, in the field.
My guess is that both White and Devenski will make their major league debuts at some point in 2016!
