The Astros and California State University, Fullerton pitcher Thomas Eshelman have reached an agreement, reports Fox's Mark Berman.

The Astros selected Eshelman with the 46th pick in the 2015 MLB Draft. At Cal State Fullerton, Eshelman was the Titans' Friday starter - pitching in 19 games in 2015 and collecting 137 innings pitched. He had 8-5 record with one save, five compete games, 139 strikeouts, seven walks, and a 1.58 ERA.

Eshelman was named the 2015 Fullerton Regional MVP, 2015 Louisville Slugger All-American First Team, 2015 Big West Conference Pitcher of the Year, 2015 Big West Conference First Team, and a 2015 Golden Spikes Award Semifinalist.

In his career at Cal State Fullerton, he posted a 28-11 record with a 1.66 career ERA.

Eshelman and Daz Cameron are the only picks left in the Astros' top ten selections that are unsigned. It will be interesting to see the final figure to see how much money they have to play with to sign Cameron and other picks outside the top ten.
