Astros have announced they reached an agreement with Jiovanni Mier, the 21st overall pick of the MLB Draft. Mier is reported to be heading to Greeneville once he passes a physical in Houston.
“I’m just really excited to get going right now,” Mier said. “The money isn’t really that big of a deal. It’s nice to have, but I am really excited about having a chance to play professional baseball. It’s a dream come true.”
Oh to be a teen again and have thoughts like 1.385 million dollars isn’t that big of a deal.
The Astros have now 34 of their 51 picks and 23 of the top 25. Greeneville is now home to Mier, Meyer (3rd sup), Hyatt (4th). The Gulf Coast League Astros are home to Bushue (2nd), and Nash (3rd). While Tri Cities has Wikoff (5th), Walker (8th), Orloff (9th) & Castro (10th). If the Astros are able to sign Dallas Keuchel (7th), who is the lone unsigned pick from the top 10 rounds, he will likely go to Tri Cities as well.
