Jordan Lyles and J.D. Martinez have been named the Astros' minor league pithcer and player of the year respectively. (Lyles and Martinez were also voted to these same honors by readers of Farmstros earlier this month.) The duo will be honored at a special ceremony prior to Saturday's game against the Cubs at 6:05 p.m. This event is part of the Astros Minor League MVP event which has been mentioned here previously. Remember if you buy a ticket to this event and tell Richard Tapia at 713-259-8303 that Farmstros sent you, I will give you a homemade Farmstros magnet Saturday at Minute Maid Park.
Omar Lopez who managed the GCL Astros this season will also be honored as Houston's Player Development Man of the Year.
