Astros Crawfish Boil: December 8, 2022
With the Winter Meetings over, it’s time to sit back and wait. There are still more than 10 weeks until the pitchers and catchers report.
First of all, I apologize. This boil was signed and sealed last night with enough time for a timely delivery. Unfortunately, I set it to 8:00 PM instead of 8:00 AM. I was at work so far, my first chance to fix the problem. Anyway, I hope it doesn’t ruin your off-season mood. Health!

I don’t think I’ve ever seen the legacy of the Astros explained as PERFECTLY as former Marlins executive David Samson does here. This was from the night the Astros won the World Series. It’s worth the 2 minutes. I totally feel that way. Every word of it. pic.twitter.com/v6u4vFrfbF

Wow! All Astros: Yeremi Ceballos
Yeremi Ceballos is a six-foot-two, 165-pound left-handed relief pitcher from Santo Domingo, DR. Born December 21, 1998, he made his first professional appearance with the Rookie DSL Astros Blue in 2016, pitching to a 0.79 ERA in 34 innings, with 30 strikeouts and 18 walks.
Ceballos pitched in three games in 2017, then played in 15 contests in 2019 across four levels of Houston’s system. He threw 2 2⁄3 innings with the rookie-level GCL Astros, nine innings with the short-season A Tri-City ValleyCats, 3 1⁄3 entries with the Quad Cities River Bandits Mid Level A and 9 1⁄3 innings with the then High-A Fayetteville Woodpeckers. In 24 1⁄3 total innings, he allowed just 11 base hits and struck out 26. Opponents slashed .129/.275/.271 against him in what was likely a career high.
After sitting out 2020, Ceballos posted an 8.74-over-22 ERA 2⁄3 tickets in 2021 with High-A Asheville Tourists. Last season, he managed to pitch one inning apiece for each of Houston’s rookie-level Florida Coastal League teams, striking out four and allowing three runs on three hits. Houston granted free agency on November 10.
