The Astros select 6'0" 188lb 2B Davis Duren, a junior out of Oklahoma State.
Duren hit .383/.429/.543 in 230 ABs for Oklahoma State in 2010, with 21K:15BB, 24 extra-base hits, and 55RBI (2nd on the team), and hit a grand slam in the bottom of the 8th inning to seal a 12-5 win over Rice last month.
Duren, the Cowboys’ second baseman, occupies the traditional leadoff spot at No. 1 in the lineup. And he’s among the Big 12’s best, leading the league with 25 stolen bases and carrying a .419 on-base percentage.
