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.

WYTV:
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."

I keep thinking the Astros drafted Rorschach whenever I see his name.
