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

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

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

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.
