Last night, the Astros selected 1B/OF Seth Beer out of Clemson with the 28th pick. The pick was somewhat surprising, due to Beer’s lack of speed or defensive tools, but his power is real and the strikeout/walk numbers are great. Plus, he has a great name. In the second round, the Astros selected right-handed high-school pitcher Jayson Schroeder. For more information on the Astros selections check out our full draft coverage below.
