MLB Draft 2012: Astros Select ASU RHP Brady Rodgers In Third Round

The action at the 2012 MLB Draft is flying fast and furious on Tuesday's second day of selections. The Houston Astros once again held the first pick in the third round. They used that pick to select Arizona St. Sun Devils junior right-handed pitcher Brady Rodgers as the No. 96 overall selection.

Rodgers shows consistent velocity in the low-90s and has a full repertoire of four pitches that should prove to be at least major league average with some more experience. He shows good knowledge of how to use all of his pitches and will likely have plus location after some time in the minors.
