Acquired in the 2010 deal that sent Lance Berkman to the Yankees, the Dominican infielder made his debut with the Astros as a third baseman in 2011, but has also spent time at second base and in the outfield. Paredes had a solid trial in his rookie season but spent most of 2012 in the minors learning new positions.
