HLP Update, 1:27 PM CDT: We've made twelve picks so far today. Five pitchers and three shortstops have been taken, which has spelt an early draft trend of left side of the infield players (3B/SS) and pitchers. Ten of the twelve players selected are post high school players.  

HLP Update, 4:41 PM CDT: Day Two is but a memory.

  • Twelve of the players were drafted out of high school, and nineteen were plucked from either a Junior College or a Four Year University/College
  • Eighth Round pick Brandt Walker (Stanford) hails from Austin and was the only player with Texas ties drafted so far by the Astros
  • Two players drafted were teammates at Boston College: Barry Butera and James McDonald
  • Robert Donovan (RHP) is the second player drafted by the Astros in the past five seasons from Stetson University (Chris Johnson being the other)
