(46th Round) The Astros select 6'2" 175lb SS Justin Gonzalez, from Christopher Columbus (FL) High School.
Gonzalez was a 2008 2nd Team Pre-Season High School All-American, and has signed a letter of intent with Florida State. FSU associate head coach Jamey Shouppe had this to say:
"Justin is a very good middle infielder from down in Miami. He possesses great defensive skills. He also swings the bat very well. Justin is a guy that will benefit from our outstanding strength program because as he matures physically he will turn into a very good college player."
