2011 MLB Mock Draft: Sickels Has Astros Taking Dylan Bundy

More mock drafts? Sure, why not. The site hasn't felt the same without our NFL Mock Drafts.

The Astros have definitely leaned towards high school players under the new regime. Of the six first round or supplemental first round picks Houston have been able to sign over the past three years, only Jason Castro was a collegiate selection.

Stilson goes 13th to the Mets in Sickels' mock, Texas right-hander Taylor Jungmann goes 23rd to the Nationals.
