|Born||October 22, 1991|
|Drafted||Was selected in the third round by the Brewers in the 2013 Draft from Arkansas.|
Astin was originally a third round pick of the Brewers in 2013, and was acquired by the Reds in the Jonathan Broxton trade in 2014. Astin struggled early on in the Brewers organization as a starter, but saw more success as a reliever prior to the deal. He has a fastball in the high-80s to low-90s. He also works with a curveball and a cutter as his off pitches. Following the trade, Astin got off a good start with High-A Daytona, but really struggled after being promoted to Double-A with both command and hits. Both of these led to an elevated ERA and WHIP. The 2016 season was off to a much better start, as the strikeouts were up and the walks and hits were both back down.
