Houston, TX (Sports Network) - Former Houston Astros pitcher Jeriome Robertson passed away on Saturday after a motorcycle accident in Exeter, California. He was 33.

Robertson finished seventh in the 2003 National League Rookie of the Year voting as he went 15-9 with a 5.10 earned run average for Houston. His 15 wins led the team and all rookies that season.

"The Astros family is saddened by the death of Jeriome Robertson," said Astros president Tal Smith. "We drafted Jeriome in the 24th round in 1995, and he was a member of our organization for eight years. He was 15-9 in 2003 in what was essentially his rookie season. That season, he was one of four starters that were drafted in the 20th round or later, along with Wade Miller, Roy Oswalt and Tim Redding. It is tragic to see death claim another former player at such an early age, and we wish to express our condolences to Jeriome's family and friends."

Over his brief, three-year MLB career, he went 16-12 with a 5.71 ERA in 51 appearances, which included 32 starts. He spent his final time in the majors with Cleveland in 2004.
