MLB Draft 2011 Prospects: Astros Take Taylor Jungmann In Mayo's First Mock

We're about three weeks away from the MLB Draft and it doesn't look like much has been sorted out anywhere. There are quite a few candidates for the Astros at No. 11, both depending on who makes it down there that they might not expect and the guys they would normally be deciding on.

11. Houston Astros: Taylor Jungmann, RHP, Texas
It's a mistake to try and peg the Astros as going one direction or the other (college vs. high school), but a Texas kid who could get to Houston quickly might be too enticing to pass up.

Despite his insane numbers at the college level, Jungmann doesn't have typical "ace" projections from scouts because his stuff isn't dynamic in any way. Still, with the potential to command three or four quality pitches, all the tools are there for him to be a very solid starter. His windup is a bit funky and that could scare teams away from him in the top five or so picks, but look for him to be an option for any team selecting below that.
