2010 Draft update

According to Zach Levine, the Astros are trying to sign more draft picks, including continuing to negotiate with 3rd Round pick Austin Wates, who has apparently returned to Virginia after passing his physical, and 6th Round pick Adam Plutko.

Bobby Heck:
"We're going to feel very good if we get three (of the four) signed. If we get all four, we'll probably be doing cartwheels."

Brian McTaggart has a further note from Heck on 19th Round pick JaCoby Jones:
"We have a high value on him, but it's not close to where it's going to take for him to forgo LSU."
