The 2012 MLB Draft is coming up on June 4 and so the mock drafts are flying around with their final projections. The latest mock draft from ESPN's Keith Law who has the Houston Astros sticking with the same pick from his prior mock drafts with them taking Stanford Cardinal ace Mark Appel with the No. 1 overal pick:
The decision appears to be down to Appel, Byron Buxton, Lucas Giolito, Carlos Correa and Kevin Gausman. The Astros insist they'll take the best player available, but I'm sure that if they can get that player to sign for less than the $7.2 million recommended bonus for this pick, they won't complain.
