Bobby Doran: 4th Round is high enough

A Lubbock Avalanche-Journal article indicates Bobby Doran will likely sign with the Astros.

"It was stressful and nerve-wracking for about 20 minutes. I was told I would go anywhere from 82 (second round) to the Yankees to that pick right there (with the Astros). It happened to be the last one and I'm realizing my dream happening. I'm excited, and I get to stay in Texas so I'm pumped. My parents are ecstatic and this is truly a blessing. It all happened the way it was supposed to."

Doran said he'd hoped to be drafted in the second or third but that going in the fourth round would not be low enough to deter him from turning pro. He was drafted by Pittsburgh in the 36th round a year ago...

...He said the Astros project him as a starter, as he was with the Red Raiders, but that he might be doing some relief work at first once he signs a contract.
