In this special Easter weekend episode, recorded March 21, we look back at the Houston Astros' pre-season top ten prospects, according to John Sickels Minor League Ball blog. There are some familiar names (Carlos Correa, Lance McCullers, Jr.) and some unfamiliar (Jarred Cosart, Rio Ruiz) along with some forgotten (Domingo Santana) and one Astro fans wish they could forget. On the whole, a solid crop of prospects with some big stars mixed in with hard-luck stories and players that just never made the final jump to become a big league regular.
This is the first in a series for Hooks & Runs in 2023, focusing on Astro drafts and prospects.
