MLB Draft Order: Houston Astros Up On The Clock At Eleven

The first and supplemental first rounds of the MLB Draft will be held today, starting at 5 PM CT. You can watch it live on MLB Network or streaming live at MLB.com. Your Houston Astros were granted pick No. 11, and the names surrounding them have been pretty varied. They could go with Oklahoma HS righthander Archie Bradley, Texas righty Taylor Jungmann, Florida prep shortstop Francisco Lindor, or even a true surprise like Stanford lefty Chris Reed. Rice's Anthony Rendon is expected to go in the top couple of picks, possibly as high as No. 2 overall and if not, likely in the Top 5.

The Astros accumulated zero "sandwich round" picks, as they are called, because they lost no free agents worth offering arbitration to last offseason. Ergo, after No. 11, they will sit on their hands until the second round, where pick No. 69 will be their next chance to improve the farm system. Scouting director Bobby Heck seemed to think that the pitching was more impressive than the hitting, so it looks likely that they'll go there a couple of times in the first few rounds.

Here's a complete order of the first round picks that will be happening tonight:
