With the 27th Round pick (813th overall)

The Astros select Jacke Healey, 6'2" 180lb shortstop out of Youngstown State.

Healey hit .293/.376/.521, with 53K:15BB for Youngstown State in 2010.

Healey led the Penguins in homeruns (12), runs batted in (59), triples (2), runs scored (63) and base hits (83) in 2010. The former NJCAA All-America second-team selection as a member of the Potomac State Catamounts hit .356 this past season. Healey finished the year with a seven-game hit streak.

Coach Rick Pasquale:
"Jacke will do very well in professional baseball because he is a pro-style player. The Astros organization will be getting a polished infielder that loves playing the game."
