The Astros have signed 36 of 51 picks

But hope to make it at least 37. While everyone has focused on Erik Castro's old teammate, the Astros are coming down to the wire on tomorrow's signing deadline from the June Draft.

While Scott Boras has his Soul Hoover out after anyone and everyone, the Astros hope to sign at least one more pick to add to their 36 signees this year:

Amateur Scouting Director Mike Burns:
"We are currently engaged with a couple of players we selected as summer follows and are hoping to land at least 1 more to add to the 36 players we have already signed from the 2009 draft,"
