With the 20th Round pick (603rd overall)

The Astros select 5'11" 210lb CF Daniel Adamson, out of Jacksonville State University (AL).

Adamson hit .349 (76x218) with 61K:32BB in 218ABs for Jacksonville State in 2010, leading the team in triples, and was second on the team in homers, third in hits, RBI, and stolen bases.

In May, Adamson hit four homers - and two grand slams - in a doubleheader at Morehead State.

Jacksonville State:
One of the top defensive players to ever play the outfield for the Gamecocks and does so much for the pitching staff with the balls that he can run down…a fourth-year player that is expected to start in center field every day…has pop in his bat and has improved each year at the plate.
