2016

2015

Cruz, a ninth-round pick of the Astros in 2008, appeared in 26 games (22 starts) between Double-A Corpus Christi and Triple-A Oklahoma City last season, going 8-8 with a 3.68 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 118:38 K:BB over 124.2 innings. The 24-year-old left-hander doesn't walk too many batters and has struck out nearly a batter per inning since 2011. Cruz only made five starts in Triple-A last season, however, so that's likely where he will begin to open the 2015 campaign.
