With the 551st pick...

The Astros select 6'2" 190lb RHP J.B. McDonald from Boston College.

In 2009, McDonald's line...
5-7 record, 96.1IP, 96H/52ER, 72K:31BB, .250 BAA. Caught 7 of 13 baserunners stealing.

McDonald:
"Pro ball is what I'd love to do. I've talked to some teams lately: the Padres, Tigers, and Royals. A fair amount of teams basically called me to make sure my health is good and asked if I wanted to play (pro baseball). There wasn't been any kind of talk about money or (which) round. Honestly, I have no idea what round I may get picked or if I will be drafted. I definitely want to play (professionally) and my BC coach, Don Oaki, feels I have a shot at being drafted."
