Hoes made the move from the home team's clubhouse at Camden Yards to the visitors' clubhouse on July 31, 2013 when the Astros traded Bud Norris to the Orioles in the middle of a series in Baltimore. Bouncing between Houston and AAA for the next 2-1/2 years, Hoes hit .240 with four home runs and seven stolen bases in 109 games in an Astros uniform. Unable to win a job in a crowded Houston outfield, L.J. was sent back to the Orioles after the 2015 season in a cash deal.
