MLB Draft 2011 Prospects: Latest Minor League Ball Mock Lands Jungmann With Astros

The Astros have begun to become a very popular draft projection for Texas right-hander Taylor Jungmann. Jungmann has dominated for the Longhorns this season, putting up a 0.95 ERA with 116 strikeouts in 127 innings, and allowing just 67 hits over the course of the year. Astros scouting director Bobby Heck tends to lean more towards projection and high schoolers, but even if Jungmann doesn't have classic ace stuff, his build and command are likely to be appealing to the Astros. Here's what Minor League Ball had to say in sending him to Houston in their latest mock:

11) Astros: Taylor Jungmann, RHP, University of Texas: Home-state product, very talented, good mixture of safety, affordability, and upside.

I tend to think that if the Astros had their druthers, SS Francisco Lindor would be their pick. Heck loves up-the-middle talent, as Houston showed with the selections of Delino DeShields Jr. and Jiovanni Mier. The question will be: does Lindor make it to Houston?

I would be remiss in not pointing you to the excellent Crawfish Boxes work on some of the possibilities at No. 11 overall. Here's a list of who they've profiled so far:
