The 25-year-old was second of Astros minor leaguers in total strikeouts (146) and innings pitched (111.0). His combined 3.32 ERA and 4.29 strikeout-to-walk-ratio were tops of any Astros minor leaguer to log at least 70 innings pitched. His ratio of 11.8 strikeouts-per-nine-innings was second-best of Astros minor leaguers with at least 70 innings pitched.

The Astros selected Bermudez in the 23rd round of the 2018 MLB Draft from Southeastern University (Lakeland, Fla.). The Astros also announced that catcher Luke Berryhill, who spent time with Low A Fayetteville, High A Asheville and Corpus Christi this season, was named the organization's Minor League Player of the Year.
