Astros to sign 3rd Round pick Austin Wates

Big props to Deputy Street for digging up that the Astros have agreed in principle with 3rd Round pick Austin Wates. You have to wade through a lot of the notebook to get to this:

Virginia Tech coach Pete Hughes said that All-ACC outfielder Austin Wates has agreed in principle with Houston, which selected him in the third round but the Astros have not made an announcement. Hughes said that five other Tech underclassmen are on the fence.

That leaves Delino DeShields, Jr, and Adam Plutko as the only Top 10 picks to not have at least agreed in principle.
