Intro to the Astros 2014 Draft Class


A brief introduction to each of the Astros 2014 draft picks.

Astros and Aiken Agree to Terms


Astros have come to terms with their top draft selection, Brady Aiken

8th Round Pick: Bobby Boyd, CF, WVU

Speed and contact at the plate. It's his calling card.

7th Round Pick: Derick Velazquez, RHP, Fresno St

Drafted as a reliever, he will likely move pretty quickly through the system.

Sixth Round Pick: Brock Dykxhoorn, RHP, JUCO

JUCO pitcher with great strikeout numbers but lacks great velocity. The size is impressive though.

Fifth Round Pick: Jacob Nix, RHP, CA HS

Projectable RHP's with 96/97 MPH fastballs will always be noticed. He's got a lot of work but the upside is nice.

2014 4th Round Pick: Daniel Mengden, RHP, TAMU

Four-pitch mix with command can only last so long. He was originally thought of as a first rounder.

2014 2nd Round Pick: A.J. Reed, 1B, Kentucky


You want POWER? Well here is plenty of it and from the left side.

1.37 Draft Pick Profile: Derek Fisher, OF, UVa

Where the TCB crew will answer ALL of your 2014 MLB Draft questions...well sort of...I CAN'T PREDICT THE FUTURE!

2014 Draft Profile: Brady Aiken, LHP, HS

Easily the top prep LHP in the draft and arguably the top pitcher in the draft. Good mechanics with top flight stuff from the left side is hard to come by.

2014 Draft Profile: Brett Graves, RHP, Missouri

He's been drafted by Jeff Luhnow before and has seen dramatic improvements in his peripheral stats. There's good stuff and room for improvement.

2014 Draft Profile: Chase Mallard, RHP, UAB

College senior are usually late bloomers and can provide a lot of flexibility in the draft. This senior has good stuff and keeps walks to a minimum.

TCB MiLB POTW: 5/23-5/29

Daily Crawfish Boil: Pitching Up in the Zone


Subber10 looks at a recent fangraphs article that challenges conventional thinking on fastball location.

2014 Draft Profile: Jace Fry, LHP, Oregon St.

Plans never work out, and while the end result has to be what Fry was looking for, the path certainly was not.

2014 MLB Draft Profile: Luke Weaver, RHP, FSU

More of a polished college arm with very good control but lacks high end upside due to a lack of a dominant breaking ball and lowered velocity.

2014 MLB Draft Profile: Bryce Montes de Oca: RHP

This is the definition of a big bodied pitcher. However, his big frame and velocity come at a price since he has a significant injury history that will affect his draft stock.

2014 MLB Draft Profile: Michael Kopech, RHP, TX HS

He's a tall and wiry frame athlete on the mound. There a lot of potential but needs a lot of work to refine the mechanics and stuff to reach anything near his ceiling.
