With the 581st pick...

The Astros select 5'9" 180lb righty CF Brian Kemp, a junior from St. John's.

Kemp was 83x219 (.379/.470/.507), 19XBH-35RBI, 25K:25BB, and was HBP a Biggio-esque 17 times in 2009. He committed 1 error in 90 chances for a .989 fielding percentage.

Kemp was the first batter to ever take a pitch in a game at the Mets' CitiField, as he was the lead-off batter vs Georgetown earlier this spring.
