2006 Houston Astros Roster

It is a comprehensive team roster and player names are sorted by the fielding position where the most number of games were played during the regular season.

These team rosters are presented only when and where the data is available.

"The Astros' stunning push through the last two weeks of the season left them with positive feelings about their season, even if they fell a couple of games short of making a historic recovery just in the nick of time. But even though the Astros hit well, pitched well and played good defense through a nine-game winning streak that was almost enough to overtake the Cardinals, it should not cloud the big picture. The Astros were a talented but flawed team this year, and the basic needs still exist going into the 2007 season." - Sportswriter Alyson Footer on MLB.com (10/02/2006)
