And the Astros' 8th overall pick, Delino DeShields, Jr, had some words following his drafting:
"I guess they liked what they saw when I was down there to make them change their minds and take me earlier. I've always known they liked me, but I didn't know they liked me that much. It feels really good."
"I knew heading into the Draft that it would either be Houston or Toronto. I'm just speechless. I don't know what to say. When they called my name, all my friends and family jumped up and mobbed me. I'm glad it's over now and I can settle in and relax before getting back to work."
