With the 881st pick...

(29th round) The Astros select 6'3" 230lb CF Garen Wright from Putnam City (OK) HS.

Versatile player, also pitches, and Perfect Game had this to say:
Large muscular frame, hits from an open stance, strong hands, hits back spin line drives, gets barrel to baseball, has good plate coverage, balanced swing, good arm strength, good baseball flight and carry, pitches from natural 3/4 arm slot, max effort, fastball has arm side run and late life, CB has 12-6 spin, good speed. Good student.

Wright is an Oklahoma Coaches Association All-State outfielder, as well.
