The Astros have made three picks: two high school hitters and a college senior who pitches. Only one MILB game tonight, in Sugar Land. Tell us what you think in the comments. Whitaker was the 30th ranked prospect at ESPN. We’re basically getting a late-first round talent in the 3rd round. A disaster if he can’t be signed.
What else is on your mind? Who’s elevated his prospect status most? Who in AA or AAA might help in September? Who pitches on 7/20 if Greinke and Urquidy still aren’t ready? Jump in!
