McTaggart: First Round Pick Foltynewicz Leaning Towards Signing With 'Stros

This is one name that I feel I will never, ever learn how to spell. Copy and paste, for the win.

Anyway, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com is reporting that Astros first round pick Mike Foltynewicz, currently slated to go to the University of Texas, is leaning towards signing with Houston.

Mike Foltynewicz, the hard-throwing right-handed pitcher the Astros selected with the 19th overall pick Monday in the First-Year Player Draft, said Tuesday he’s more likely to sign with the Astros than go to the University of Texas.

“I want to get my professional career headed out in the right way and right now I’m definitely going to considering starting my professional career,” he said.

We don’t want this year to end up like 2007 did. Sign the kid, Ed!
