The depth of the Astros farm system takes a hit with the departure of two prospects in the trade for Matt Lindstrom Wednesday as well as reportedly a pick in Thursday's Rule 5 draft. However, Robert Bono and Luis Bryan are far enough down the ladder that it's worth the risk to see if Lindstrom regains his form of 2007 and 2008.
Robert Bono, RHP will be 22 by opening day of 2010. He was part of the Lexington starting rotation in 2009 posting a 3.20 ERA in 25 starts. He was named a member of the Farmstros Five three times in 2009.
Luis Bryan, IF, 20 spent 2009 with the short season GCL Astros where he batted .340 in 31 games and received one Farmstros Five honor.
