Astros Select Guduan to 40-man Roster

Left-handed reliever made 34 appearances at Triple A in 2016

HOUSTON, TX - The Houston Astros have selected left-handed pitcher Reymin Guduan to their 40-man roster today. The announcement was made by Astros General Manager Jeff Luhnow.

Guduan, 24, split his 2016 season between Triple A Fresno (34g) and Double A Corpus Christi (9g) posting a 3-3 record with two saves and a 4.18 ERA (26ER/56IP). The hard-throwing left-hander struck out 63 batters in 56.0 innings pitched, while allowing just a .235 opponent batting average on the season. He limited left-handers at the Triple A level to a .213 opponent batting average. The 2016 season was Guduan's seventh (2010-16) in the Astros system after signing out of the Dominican Republic in September of 2009.

With the addition of Guduan, the Astros now have 37 players on their 40-man roster.
