Order for June draft established

Baseball America has the order for the 2009 June Amateur draft.

1st Round: 21st pick. And because the Astros did not tender contracts to Randy Wolf or Ty Wigginton, there will be no compensation picks. But the Astros do get the 111th pick (third round supplelemental) for not signing 2008 third-round draftee, 6'6" first baseman Chase Davidson, who instead chose to attend the University of Georgia. It would have been nice to have the 46th-ranked prospect working his way up the ladder for the post-Lance years...
