Signed out of Venezuela when he was 16, the 5-7 second baseman rose all the way from A ball to the majors in 2011. In 2012, he became the Astros' All-Star representative while batting .291 and leading the team in runs, hits, doubles, triples and stolen bases. He appears to be one of the central players in the rebuilding process for future seasons.
