The Houston Astros are having a heckuva time during the 2015 MLB Draft. The team had an outstanding day one, when they were able to  draft three top-10 talents – SS Alex Bregman, OF Kyle Tucker, and OF Daz Cameron – in the first round, with the second, fifth, and 37th picks overall. That’s quite impressive. The Astros capped their first day of drafting by taking RHP Thomas Eshelman in the second round. Two of those picks are collegiate athletes, Bregman and Eshelman, while Tucker and Cameron are elite high school talents.

On the second day of the draft, the Astros continued to add to their haul. Houston made eight picks, of which only one was not drafted out of college. Also, the Astros turned their attention to pitching, taking five hurlers out of those eight selections. The biggest challenge for the team now is to ink these young men to contracts.

Here’s a brief rundown to get you caught up on yesterday’s action:
