Houston Astros Top 30 Prospects For 2019

Houston Astros Top 30 Prospects For 2019

I released 10 prospects a day, but here is the list compiled with all top 30 prospects!

30. Jeremy Pena, SS

Current Level: A-
ETA: 2022
DOB: 09/22/97

Pena was drafted by the Astros in the 3rd round of the 2018 draft. While many shortstop prospects in college end up moving off the position, Pena looks like a lock to stay at short. He has good speed which leads to good range and possesses a plus arm. He played in 36 games following the draft and showed some ability hitting .250 with 18 BB/19 K. He doesn’t have a ton of power but being able to stick at shortstop and be a plus defender there is huge. He should be able t o work his way through the minors by getting on base and playing great defense.

2018 Stats: 36 G, .250 BA/.340 OBP/.309 SLG, 5 2B, 1 HR, 10 RBI, 3 SB, 18 BB/19 SO

29. Ross Adolph, OF

Current Level: A-
ETA: 2022
DOB: 12/17/96

Adolph was recently acquired by the Astros in the JD Davis trade. Adolph was a 12th round pick by the Mets in the 2018 draft. He played in short season ball in 2018 but showed his ability posting a .857 OPS with 9 2B, 12 3B, 7 HR, 14 SB and a 147 wRC+. It appears the reason he fell was some past medical history but he was healthy this past season. He has plus raw power and speed. I haven’t been able to watch him but after reading reports, he seems to be a very good athlete and has a chance to stick in center field. The Davis trade looks like a solid one on paper right now.

2018 Stats: 61 G, .276 BA/.348 OBP/.509 SLG, 9 2B, 12 3B, 7 HR, 35 RBI, 14 SB

28. Alex McKenna, OF

Current Level: A
ETA: 2021
DOB: 09/06/97

McKenna was drafted by the Astros in the 4th round of the this year’s draft. He put together a solid showing in his Astros’ debut. Following the draft he played for Tri-City and had a .958 OPS with 7 2B and 5 HR in 32 games. The Astros then moved him up to Quad Cities where he had a .772 OPS in 12 games. Overall he had a 164 wRC+. McKenna has solid power and is a good runner. He has plus instincts and quickness in center field which should help him stick there. He will be a fun prospect to watch next year as he plays a full season in the system.

2018 Stats: 44 G, .311 BA/.394 OBP/.512 SLG, 8 2B, 2 3B, 7 HR, 28 RBI, 6 SB

27. Abraham Toro, 3B

Current Level: AA
ETA:2020
DOB: 12/20/96

Toro was drafted by the Astros in the 5th round of the 2016 draft. He made his full season debut in 2017 and made it up to AA in 2018. He started the 2018 season with Buies Creek where he hit .257 with .884 OPS in 83 games. This was good for a 136 wRC+ despite a low BABIP. He was promoted to Corpus Christi and hit just .230, but he did hit .296 over his final 20 games. Overall he had a 119 wRC+ with a solid 11.3 BB%. Toro has a very strong arm and good power, while being a switch hitter. He doesn’t strikeout a ton and draws walks at a solid rate. Hopefully his late season adjustment to AA will continue in 2019.

2018 Stats: 133 G, .247 BA/.345 OBP/.435 SLG, 35 2B, 16 HR, 78 RBI, 8 SB, 62 BB/108 SO

26. Cristian Javier, RHP

Current Level: A+
ETA: 2021
DOB: 03/26/97

Javier is a bit of an unknown in the Astros system but he has been dominant over his brief career. His first year in the Astros system, 2015, he had a 2.13 ERA in the DSL. In 2016 between the GCL and Greeneville he had a 2.29 ERA. Javier followed that up with a very good 2017 season with a 2.25 ERA and 80 K in 60 innings. His stuff is good but he has an advanced pitchability that allows him to dominate at the lower levels. He was very good in 2018 too striking out 146 over 110 innings. He finished the season in High-A (3.41 ERA in 60.2 IP) and should see time in AA in 2019.

2018 Stats: 25 G, 2.70 ERA, 110.0 IP, 72 H, 50 BB, 146 K, 11.9 K/9

25. Joe Perez, 3B

Current Level: Rookie
ETA: 2022
DOB: 08/12/99

Heading into the 2017 draft it looked like Perez would be drafted as a pitcher, though some teams stayed away from him due to his impending Tommy John surgery. The Astros announced him as a third baseman on draft night and have since stated they plan to have him play in the field. Perez has good power and the Astros believe he will hit for both average and power while having a plus arm at the hot corner. He missed the 2017 following the draft but made his debut in 2018. Unfortunately he only played in four games due to some nagging injuries. He has a very high ceiling.

2018 Stats: 4 G, .364 BA (4-for-11), RBI, SB, 3 BB/1 SO

24. Joshua Rojas, SS

Current Level: AA
ETA: 2020
DOB: 06/30/94

Rojas was drafted in the 26th round of the 2017 draft but has already been a quick riser making it to Double-A baseball in less than a year. He is a utility guy who can play all over the field and has good strike zone discipline, with some sneaky pop too. His final year in college he hit .294 with 28 BB/19 K. In 2017 following the draft he hit .256 with 10 HR and 40 RBI in 52 games for Quad Cities. In 2018 he played in 130 games and put up a solid 111 wRC+, 12.2 BB%, 16.0 K% and a .760 OPS. He also showed off the versatility playing 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, and LF while stealing 38 bases.

2018 Stats: 130 G, .263 BA/.351 OBP/.408 SLG, 34 2B, 6 3B, 8 HR, 55 RBI, 38 SB, 68 BB/89 SO

23. Garrett Stubbs, C

Current Level: AAA
ETA: 2019
DOB: 05/26/93

Stubbs was drafted by the Astros in the 8th round of the 2015 draft. He was drafted as a solid defensive catcher but has made improvements with the bat. He has steadily moved through the system and had a solid season in 2018. In 84 games for the Grizzlies he hit .310 striking out just 53 times. He also caught 19 of 42 base stealers for a 45% caught stealing rate. Overall he had a 120 wRC+ with a solid 10.3 BB%. He will probably make his major league debut sometime this season. Stubbs is 25 years old but is a solid depth piece for the Astros right now. A guy who can be good defensively behind the plate and make contact with called upon.

2018 Stats: 84 G, .310 BA/.382 OBP/.455 SLG, 19 2B, 6 3B, 4 HR, 38 RBI, 6 SB, 35 BB/53 SO

22. Brandon Bailey, RHP

Current Level: AA
ETA: 2020
DOB: 10/19/94

The Astros acquired Bailey in the deal that sent Laureano to Oakland prior to the 2018 season. Bailey pitched the majority of the season in Buies Creek and was arguably the ace of the staff. He had a 2.49 ERA with 113 K in 97.2 innings. He dominated in the second half of the season posting a 1.31 ERA with 8 BB/45 K in 41.1 innings. He also pitched in five games for the Hooks striking out 23 over 24.2 innings. Bailey has a fastball with late life and a very good 12-6 curveball. He fits the mold of a Collin McHugh like pitcher that the Astros fall in love with. His is smaller, and may end up the bullpen, but he should make it to the MLB at some point.

2018 Stats: 25 G, 2.80 ERA, 122.1 IP, 90 H, 52 BB, 136 K, 10.0 K/9

21. Jairo Solis, RHP

Current Level: A
ETA: 2022
DOB: 12/22/99

Solis was signed by the Astros out of Venezuela in 2016. He has all the makings of a top pitching prospect but, unfortunately, he had Tommy John surgery late last year and will likely miss all of the 2019 season. In 2018 he made his full-season debut at just 18 years old but held his own striking out 51 in 50.2 innings and posting a 3.55 ERA. He has a fastball that sits in the mid 90s, a good curveball, and a developing changeup. Despite the surgery, he will return in 2020 at just 20 years old and still one of the highest potential pitching prospects in the system.

2018 Stats: 13 G, 3.55 ERA, 50.2 IP, 49 H, 32 BB, 51 K, 9.1 K/9

20. Rogelio Armenteros, RHP

Current Level: AAA
ETA: 2019
DOB: 06/30/94

Armenteros really broke onto the scene in 2017 when he dominated across AA and AAA posting a 2.04 ERA with 146 K in 123.2 innings. Armenteros spent the entire 2018 season with Fresno and while his numbers were good, they weren’t as impressive as 2018. He still struck out 10.2 per 9 innings but had a 3.74 ERA. I thought he would get a chance to make his debut in 2018 but with the Astros adding him to the 40 man roster this season, there is a good chance he will debut in 2019. He won’t dominate you with stuff, but he has a solid mix and good pitchability.

2018 Stats: 22 G, 3.74 ERA, 118.0 IP, 106 H, 48 BB, 134 K, 10.2 K/9

19. Luis Santana, 2B

Current Level: Rookie
ETA: 2022
DOB: 07/20/99

The 19 year old infielder was signed by the Mets as an international free agent out of the Dominican Republic in 2016 as one of their more expensive signings and traded to Houston this off-season. Santana was ranked among the Mets’ top 30 prospects at the time of the trade. In his short time in pro ball thus far, the kid has done nothing but hit. Across 3 seasons his career numbers are astronomical: .329/426/.465 with a 64BB/52K ratio. Although he has hit just 7 homers, he has shown some pop with his 29 doubles. The source of excitement behind Luis is a quick bat and an outstanding ability to make consistent, hard contact on all types of pitches. Scouts see him as a spark plug type player. Santana’s line over the last two seasons: 118 G, .336 BA/.437 OBP/.476 SLG, 158 wRC+.

2018 Stats: 53 G, .348 BA/.446 OBP/.471 SLG, 13 2B, 4 HR, 35 RBI, 8 SB, 27 BB, 23 K

18. J.J. Matijevic, OF

Current Level: A+
ETA: 2020
DOB: 09/06/97

Matijevic was the Astros 2nd round pick in 2017. Scouts were unsure where he would play but it looks like the Astros are set on him being an outfielder at this point. Matijevic put together a really solid 2018 season. He started the year in Quad Cities but make quick work hitting .354 with 10 XBH in 13 games. He spent the rest of the year in Buies Creek and showed off his power with 20 2B, 19 HR in 88 games (.513 SLG). Overall he posted a respectable 10.2 BB% and a very good 147 wRC+. He generated some great exit velocity this season and really showed off the power stroke. Reports are down on his defense a bit but his bat should be able to carry him. For more on Matijevic click here.

2018 Stats: 101 G, .277 BA/.350 OBP/.538 SLG, 26 2B, 4 3B, 22 HR, 62 RBI, 13 SB

17. Peter Solomon, RHP

Current Level: A+
ETA: 2021
DOB: 08/16/96

Solomon was another high upside pick. A guy who had electric stuff but control issues. Just as the picks before, he dominated in the minors this season. He started the year with Quad Cities and had a 2.43 ERA with 88 K in 77.2 innings. He was promoted to Buies Creek where he was even better posting a 1.96 ERA with 4 BB/26 K in 23 innings. Overall he had a 2.32 ERA with a 2.40 FIP in 100.2 innings. Oh, and you wouldn’t believe it but he also posted good groundball numbers. Solomon has a low to mid 90s fastball and mixes in a solid slider, curveball, and changeup.

2018 Stats: 24 G, 2.32 ERA, 100.2 IP, 78 H, 32 BB, 114 K, 10.2 K/9

16. Framber Valdez, LHP

Current Level: MLB
ETA: 2018
DOB: 11/19/93

Valdez has been a favorite of many to breakout over the last couple years. He started the year in Corpus Christi and posted some of the best peripherals of his minor league career (2.8 BB/9, 11.4 K/9). He was promoted to AAA where he pitched in just two games before being called up the the Astros. With Houston he had a 2.19 ERA and 34 K in 37 innings. Overall in the minors he had a 4.11 ERA but a 2.93 FIP with great peripherals. Valdez has a good fastball and very good curveball but doesn’t really have a third pitch. His tailing fastball and curveball should be good enough to keep him in the MLB in the rotation or the bullpen.

2018 Stats: 22 G, 4.11 ERA, 103.0 IP, 100 H, 32 BB, 129 K, 11.3 K/9

15. Jayson Schroeder, RHP

Current Level: Rookie
ETA: 2022
DOB: 11/14/99

Schroeder is 6’2” and 200 lbs and was drafted by the Astros in the 2nd round of the 2018 draft. In his debut last year he struck out 18 over 18 innings with a 1.50 ERA. Schroeder has a fastball, curve, changeup, and slider in his arsenal. He throws his curve extremely well and shows a lot of fade on his changeup, but his slider is a work in progress. He has a lot of potential at this point and should be in full season in 2019.

2018 Stats: 7 G, 1.50 ERA, 18.0 IP, 13 H, 9 BB, 18 K

14. Ronnie Dawson, OF

Current Level: AA
ETA: 2020
DOB: 05/19/95

Dawson was drafted by the Astros in the 2nd round of the 2016 draft. He had a solid 2017 season and followed that up with a solid year in 2018 as well. He started the year in High-A and had a .728 OPS with 18 2B, 10 HR, 29 SB in 90 games. He was promoted to Corpus Christi where he played in 29 games and had a .859 OPS and 6 HR. He finished the year with a .762 OPS and a 114 wRC+. Dawson will have to cut down on the strikeouts a bit but he does draw some walks. He has solid power from the left side and, from reports, improved a ton defensively last season. Dawson is one of the more intriguing prospects with his power and speed combo.

2018 Stats: 119 G, .258 BA/.333 OBP/.428 SLG, 24 2B, 2 3B, 16 HR, 63 RBI, 35 SB, 45 BB/130 SO

13. Brandon Bielak, RHP

Current Level: AA
ETA: 2020
DOB: 04/02/96

Bielak was drafted out of Notre Dame in the 11th round following a really rough junior season. The Astros aggressively started Bielak in High-A and he pitched great posting a 2.10 ERA with 74 K in 55.2 innings. He was promoted to AA where he had a 2.35 ERA, even though his peripherals went down a bit (22 BB/57 K in 61.1 innings). Overall he had a 2.23 ERA with a 2.94 FIP across both levels. Bielak has a good fastball and mixes in a very good curveball, a solid slider, and developing changeup. He had a great first season and could see AAA this year in just his second full season.

2018 Stats: 25 G, 2.23 ERA, 117.0 IP, 96 H, 39 BB, 131 K, 10.1 K/9

12. Tyler Ivey, RHP

Current Level: A+
ETA: 2021
DOB: 05/12/96

Ivey was a high upside selection in the 2017 draft. He initially attended Texas A&M before transferring to Grayson Community College. Some saw it as a possible over draft but Ivey’s numbers, and stuff, are proving other wise. Ivey started the season with Quad Cities had a 3.46 ERA in 41.2 innings. The peripherals were even better. He had 8 BB/53 K (26.b K/BB%) and a 2.14 FIP/2.40 xFIP in those 41.2 innings. He was promoted to Buies Creek where he has a 2.69 ERA with 82 K in 70.1 innings. There he had a 2.56 FIP/2.86 xFIP and 54.4 GB%. Like Bielak, Ivey has a good fastball and an above average curveball. He also has a slider, chanegup, and cutter, though those are a little behind the other pitches. He has all the makings of a top starter.

2018 Stats: 24 G, 2.97 ERA, 112.0 IP, 86 H, 29 BB, 135 K, 10.8 K/9

11. Myles Straw, OF

Current Level: MLB
ETA: 2018
DOB: 10/17/94

Straw has steadily made his way through the system after being a 12th round pick in 2015. He hits for average, draws walks, and steals bases. He started the year in AA and hit .327 with a .414 OBP in 65 games. He was also 35-41 in stolen bases. He was promoted to AAA and played in 66 games hitting .257 with .349 OBP while stealing another 35 bags. Overall he hit .291 with 70 SB in 131 games. He saw some time in Houston too and was 3-for-9 with a homer. He possesses plus speed and is probably the fastest player in the Astros system. He also has a very strong arm and with the his speed, should be able to be plus in center field. Plus speed, plus arm, and above average defense bodes well for Straw to big a major leaguer for a long time.

2018 Stats: 131 G, .291 BA/.381 OBP/.353 SLG, 17 2B, 6 3B, 1 HR, 31 RBI, 70 SB, 73 BB/102 K

10. Bryan Abreu, RHP

Current Level: A
ETA: 2021
DOB: 04/22/97

Abreu has been a bit of a late bloomer as he was signed in 2013 but really broke onto the scene in 2018. In 2018, between two levels, Abreu had a 1.49 ERA and an absurd 90 K in 54.1 innings. Abreu possesses a solid mid 90s fastball but what really led to his strikeouts was his above average slider and curveball. The Astros added him to the 40 man roster to protect him from the Rule 5 Draft so he could be a fast riser. He has the size and stuff to project as a starter but a bullpen spot isn’t an unrealistic scenario either.

2018 Stats: 14 G, 1.49 ERA, 54.1 IP, 33 H, 23 BB, 90 K, 14.9 K/9

9. Freudis Nova, SS

Current Level: Rookie
ETA: 2022
DOB: 01/12/00

Nova is one of the highest potential guys in the Astros system. He was signed for $1.2 million in 2016 and made his stateside debut during the 2018 season. He played in 41 games and hit .308 with 6 HR and 9 SB. Overall he had a 120 wRC+ at just 18 years old. Nova really has all the tools to succeed. Quick feet, strong arm, plus speed, and the ability to hit for both average and power. He has above average raw power too, which is nice to see from a young shortstop. We should see him in Quad Cities in 2019 which will be a good test for the 19 year old.

2018 Stats: 41 G, .308 BA/.331 OBP/.466 SLG, 3 2B, 1 3B, 6 HR, 28 RBI, 9 SB

8. Cionel Perez, LHP

Current Level: MLB
ETA: 2018
DOB: 04/21/96

Perez originally agreed to a deal with the Astros worth $5.15 million but the deal was voided due to a physical. Perez was later signed for $2 million. Perez put together a great 2018 season. He started the year in AA and posted a 1.83 ERA with 83 K in 68.1 innings while flashing a 98 MPH heater. He pitched in 5 games in relief for the Grizzlies before being promoted to Houston. With the Astros, he had a 3.97 ERA in 11.1 innings. While he is smaller in stature, he has a solid mix of pitches with a mid 90s fastball and an improving slider and changeup. He also has the advantage of being a left handed pitcher and might be able to carve out a role in the bullpen this year, even though he still projects as a starter.

2018 Stats: 20 G, 2.08 ERA, 73.2 IP, 59 H, 28 BB, 89 K, 10.9 K/9 (AA/AAA)

7. Seth Beer, 1B/OF

Current Level: A+
ETA:2021
DOB: 09/18/96

Beer was the Astros first round pick in 2018, but some people wondered how he would do with a wood bat. He put up numbers early proving them wrong so far. Beer started with Tri-City and had a 1.090 OPS in 11 games before being promoted to Quad Cities. There he had a .934 OPS in 29 games. He finished the season with Buies Creek posting a .746 OPS in 27 games. Through all three levels he had a 155 wRC+ and had just a 16.6 K%. Beer has an intriguing combination of power and patience and should see his bat carry him through the system. Beer played more games in left than first base in 2019 but ultimately I see him ending up as a DH/1B. Here is another good read on Beer.

2018 Stats: 67 G, .304 BA/.389 OBP/.496 SLG, 14 2B, 12 HR, 42 RBI, 25 BB/49 SO

6. J.B. Bukauskas, RHP

Current Level: AA
ETA: 2020
DOB: 10/11/96

Bukauskas was the Astros first round pick in 2017. Bukauskas was involved in a car accident in spring training which pushed him timeline back a bit. He pitched a couple times in April before going back on the DL. He started his rehab Tri-City striking out 9 in 8.1 scoreless innings. He went back to Quad Cities and struck out 21 over 15 innings. JB was then promoted to Buies Creek where he really got rolling.  He started five games for Buies Creek and posted a 1.61 ERA while striking out 31 over 28 innings. He earned a final promotion to Corpus Christi where he struck out 8 over 6 scoreless innings in his one start. He also made one start in the playoffs allowing 1 run in 6 innings. Overall he had a 2.14 ERA with 71 K in 59 innings. Scouts still question his size but he has a hard fastball, and a 70 grade slider. He mixes in a nice changeup as well. The 2017 draft is looking really strong for pitchers right now.

2018 Stats: 14 G, 2.14 ERA, 59.0 IP, 42 H, 24 BB, 71 K, 10.8 K/9

5. Josh James, RHP

Current Level: MLB
ETA: 2018
DOB: 03/08/93

James was drafted in the 34th round of the 2014 draft and steadily made his way through the Astros system. James’ sleep issues are well documented, and getting this figured out, along with some mechanical adjustments, helped him gain elite velocity. This season in the minors he struck out 171 in 114.1 innings with a 3.23 ERA earning him his call up to Houston. James showed why he was getting a lot of buzz striking out 9 in 5 innings in his major league debut and showed off his 101.1 MPH fastball in the first inning. He led the Astros minor league system in strikeouts, and it wasn’t close. He ended up striking out 29 in 23 innings for the Astros this year. James was a late bloomer but has the tools to be a successful starter or reliever in the big leagues.

2018 Stats: 23 G, 3.23 ERA, 114.1 IP, 79 H, 49 BB, 171 K, 13.5 K/9

4. Corbin Martin, RHP

Current Level: AA
ETA: 2019
DOB: 12/28/95

Martin was a polarizing prospect in the draft with some seeing him as a first round talent and others seeing him as a mid round pick due to concerns as a starter. The Astros selected him in the second round and he has been great. He started the 2018 season in Buies Creek and struck out 26 batters in 19 scoreless innings while allowing just 4 hits, earning him a quick promotion to AA. Martin’s first start in Double-A was rough but he got rolling after that one. He pitched in 20 games after that first outing and he had a 2.45 ERA (3.26 FIP) with 96 K in 102.2 innings. Overall he had a 2.51 ERA (3.07 FIP) and struck out 122 in 122 innings. Martin has a mid 90s fastball, a plus slider, and an above average changeup. He had a great first full season in the minors and is on the cusp of a callup after just being drafted two years ago.

2018 Stats: 25 G, 2.51 ERA, 122.0 IP, 88 H, 35 BB, 122 K, 3.49 K/BB

3. Yordan Alvarez, LF

Current Level: AAA
ETA: 2019
DOB: 06/27/97

The Astros got a steal in Alvarez when they acquired him from the Dodgers in a trade for Josh Fields. Alvarez had a breakout 2017 and continued to see his stock as a prospect rise in 2018. He got off to a great start hitting .299 with 8 2B, 6 HR, 26 RBI in his first 27 games but then missed about a month dealing with a hand injyr. He came back in mid June and finished his time in AA hitting .325 with 12 HR, 46 RBI and 168 wRC+ in 45 games. He was promoted to AAA where he had a .801 OPS with 8 HR in 43 games (111 wRC+). Overall he had a 139 wRC+ as a 21 year old between AA and AAA. Alvarez is huge (6’5″, 225 lbs) but actually moves around really well. I think he has a chance to stick in the outfield and it looks like that is the plan so far. He has monster power and has improved his plate discipline. He was ranked the #34 prospect in all of baseball by Baseball America.

2018 Stats: 88 G, .293 BA/.369 OBP/.534 SLG, 21 2B, 20 HR, 74 RBI, 6 SB, 42 BB/92 SO

2. Kyle Tucker, OF

Current Level: MLB
ETA: 2018

Tucker came into the season as the Astros top position player prospect and the #15 prospect in all of baseball by Baseball America. He did not disappoint in 2018 and actually moved even higher in the pre-2019 lists. He started the season in AAA as just a 21 years old and dominated the Pacific Coast League. In 100 games he had a .990 OPS, 24 HR, 93 RBI and a 155 wRC+. He posted respectable walk (10.3 BB%) and strikeout (18.1 K%) numbers as well. He was eventually promoted to Houston and struggled a bit, but numbers indicate he was quite unlucky and didn’t really get enough opportunities to bounce out of it. Here is a good read on Tucker and his 2018 season. Astros fans should expect to see a lot of Kyle Tucker in 2019.

2018 Stats: 100 G, .332 BA/.400 OBP/.590 SLG, 27 2B, 3 3B, 24 HR, 93 RBI, 20 SB, 48 BB/84 SO

1. Forrest Whitley, RHP

Current Level: AA
ETA: 2019
DOB: 09/15/97

Whitley was the Astros first round pick in 2016 and he has steadily made his way up the prospect boards. Whitley was dominant in 2017 but had an interesting 2018 season. He missed the first part of it serving a suspension for violating drug policy. He struggled with some injuries and only tossed a combined 26.1 innings this year but is still the top pitching prospect in baseball. Whitley has five above average pitches with a plus fastball, slider and changeup. Fangraphs noted Whitley as having the best collection of pitches in the minor leagues. With his size and pitch collection, he has all the makings of a top flight starter. He might start back at AA this season but I doubt he lasts there long.

2018 Stats: 8 G, 3.76 ERA, 26.1 IP, 15 H, 11 BB, 34 K, 11.6 K/9
