Jack Armstrong, once injured, now The Man

Here's a nice article on Astros 3rd Round pick Jack Armstrong, son of the similarly-named former ML pitcher, who will be handling the younger Armstrong's negotiations...when it's time:

"I haven't even given it two thoughts. My dad doesn't want me to [focus on signing] and neither do I. It's just a way to kind of focus on the task at hand, what we've got ahead of us. We've got plenty of time after the season's finished to negotiate all that stuff and find the right path for me."

Armstrong, who had some elbow issues earlier in the year, has apparently put that behind him, sitting between 96-98 on the radar gun.
