2013 Draft: Day Two Recap and Reaction

38

As Day Two draws to a close, here are the Astros selections and some reaction to what their selection means.

2013 10th Round Pick: Austin Nicely, LHP, VA HS

5

The Astros' last pick of day two is an intriguing raw talent who will be brought along slowly if he signs

2013 9th Round Pick: Brian Holberton, C, UNC

3

He's not a flashy prospect, but Holberton brings a modicum of upside to the Astros' farm system.

2013 Draft 7th Round Pick: James Ramsay, CF, USF

1

An All-Big East selection this season, Ramsay shows a good approach at the plate and great defensive skills in centerfield.

2013 Draft 8th Round Pick: Jason Martin, CF

5

Speed everywhere! He plays the game fast and it allows for him to be an asset on both sides of the ball.

2013 Draft 6th Round Pick:Jacob Nottingham, C

+

He's a project but the upside is there as a power hitting catcher with some receiving skills.

2013 Draft 5th Round Pick: Tony Kemp, 2B

5

Small and quick, Tony Kemp can be electric on the basepaths but lacks power to be a star.

2013 Draft 4th Round Pick: Conrad Gregor 1B

6

A first baseman who has struggled to display his power in the regular season but has some of the best plate discipline in college baseball.

Third Round Pick: Kent Emanuel, LHP, UNC

7

The Astros add a polished southpaw to the mix with their third selection.
