Some of the top talent from the Houston Astros farm system will give fans a glimpse of what’s to come during the inaugural Houston Astros Futures Weekend on March 30-31, 2019. The Triple-A Round Rock Express and Double-A Corpus Christi Hooks will face off in a two-game, home-and-home series just before the start of the Minor League Baseball season.
Whataburger Field, home of the Hooks, will play host to the first game of the series at 6:15 p.m. on Saturday, March 30. The two teams will then travel to Round Rock for a 2:05 p.m. first pitch in game two at Dell Diamond, home of the Express, on Sunday, March 31.
The two-game series promises to be chock-full of future stars as 14 of the Astros’ top 20 prospects, according to MLB.com, played at either the Double-A or Triple-A level in 2018, including the club’s top six prospects. Pitchers Forrest Whitley (#7), Josh James (#62), Corbin Martin (#81) and J.B. Bukauskas (#97) as well as outfielders Kyle Tucker (#8) and Yordan Alvarez (#44) all recently appeared in MLB.com’s Top 100 Prospects list as well.
