Yulieski Gurriel didn’t waste any time in making a good first impression.

The 32-year-old rookie, who was called up by Houston on Saturday, got his first hit in his first major-league at-bat on Sunday against Baltimore Orioles starter Yovani Gallardo, ripping a single to center.

The former Cuban league star was signed by the Astros on July 16. In 15 seasons in the Cuban league, Gurriel batted .335/.417/.580 with 250 home runs, 308 doubles, and 1,108 RBIs.
