35th Round pick HS 1B Esteban Gomez probably won't be signing with the Astros, according to the Brooklyn Heights Courier:
He has already locked up a scholarship to San Jacinto College in Texas, one of the top junior colleges in the country and its doubtful his signing bonus will come anywhere close to his scholarship offer.
But Gomez, the second player from Bishop Ford picked by the Astros – pitcher John Halama (23rd round, 1994) was the first – is keeping his options open.
“I just have to see what the offer is, what they’re willing to give and just take it from there,” Gomez said. “I’m going to listen to the advice my family gives me, but ultimately it’s going to be my decision.”
