PITCHERS

Jake Buchanan

Age: 24

Hometown: Dallas, N.C.

The North Carolina State product, a starter, notched a 5-6 record, 4.49 ERA last season, splitting time between Triple-A Oklahoma City and Double-A Corpus Christi.

Jose Cisnero

Age: 25

Hometown: Bajos de Haina, Dominican Republic

The stocky reliever bounced between Oklahoma City and Houston last season, but he spent the bulk of the season with the Astros (4.12 ERA in 44 IP).

Paul Clemens

Age: 26

Hometown: Burke, Va.

A starter, Clemens spent most of last season in the bullpen with the Astros, but he also made six starts, finishing 4-7 with a 5.40 ERA. He opens the season in the RedHawks rotation.

Bobby Doran

Age: 25

Hometown: Flower Mound, Texas

Part of OKC’s “eight-man” rotation, Doran was 3-0 with the RedHawks following a late-season call-up. The Texas Tech product earned the promotion following a solid four-month stint (8-2, 3.26 ERA) with Double-A Corpus Christi.

Darin Downs

Age: 29

Hometown: Lake Worth, Fla.

The former fifth-round pick has spent the bulk of his 10-year pro career in the minors, but Downs appeared in 47 games with the Detroit Tigers the past two seasons.

Mike Foltynewicz

Age: 22

Hometown: Minooka, Ill.

The 19th overall pick in 2010, Foltynewicz can hit 100 mph on radar guns. Foltynewicz was 5-3 with a 2.87 ERA for Double-A Corpus Christi. The Astros’ No. 4 prospect could earn a mid-season promotion to Houston if he the right-hander pitches well in Triple-A.
