When Leostany Molina of Santiago made his debut with the Wasps in the ’59 National Series, he could never have imagined that three years later, he would hit his first home run in the uniform of a franchise that had won the major leagues, such as the Houston Astros.

In the same 2021 he signed for the Astros and was taken to the Dominican Summer League. He was named an All-Star after combining for 51 hits in 164 at-bats with six doubles, three triples and one home run extra-base hit. Additionally, he finished the tournament with a .311 average and 27 RBIs.

He spent all of 2022 playing in Fayetteville of the Carolina League, playing in 116 games, hitting 214/.277/.298/.575 (AVE/OBP/SLG/OPS), with 98 hits, six of them home runs. He played 54 times and scored 37 runs.
