To infinite and beyond!

15 rounds down another 25 to go. There was a lot of excitement in both days of the draft can Bobby Heck and company provide some more?

Here are your first fifteen picks, the first 11 of which we've done profiles on. We won't be doing profiles for all 40 players drafted, however, if we see a name of interest we may do a profile on that player. I'm eying that 20th round selection because the Astros seem to always find an interesting prospect at that spot: Wade Miller, Tim Redding, J.R. Towles, J.D. Martinez and last years 20th round selection Matt Duffy. In the case of Duffy he's not a Top 30 prospect but he's having a good year for Lexington and there's still a chance he could move through the system.
