With Final Pick of Day 2, the Astros Choose 3B Austin Deming

Austin Deming is the final pick of the second day.

In the end, 244 more players came off the board in day two of the 2023 MLB Entry Draft.

Added to the 70 that went yesterday, that’s 314 in total, with another 300 due tomorrow. Austin Deming is the last of the first two days, but he’s still a 10th round draft pick.

Deming is a six-foot, 200 lb. corner infielder out of BYU. A native of Murray, UT, he played a full five seasons for the Cougars. Through his first three seasons, he hit around .200 with four home runs in 78 games. In 54 games in 2022, he hit .295/.371/.456 with five homers and 28 RBI, along with 15 walks to 40 strikeouts.
