2011 MLB Draft Second Day Open Thread

Here you can discuss what's going on during Day Two of the Rule 4 draft. We'll have more analysis as it progresses and a list of the draft picks will be updated here.

I'm trying to get to the draft profiles. Have finished Houser, but will have to wait until late tonight for the rest of the top 10.

2) Adrian Houser, RHP, Locust Grove HS (OK)

From Baseball America

An Oklahoma recruit, Houser has good size (6-foot-3, 200 pounds) and a quick arm capable of delivering 90-92 mph fastballs and topping out at 95. He also shows feel for a hard curveball but has a lot of work to do with his changeup. He uses his height and a high arm slot to throw on a steep downhill angle. Though he's athletic, Houser needs to do a better job of maintaining his delivery and command. His father Mike is the baseball coach at Locust Grove, and one of his cousins (Bob Davis) spent eights seasons in the big leagues as a big league catcher.
