With their 32nd Round pick...

...The Astros select 6'3" 175lb RHP Zach Dando, a 20-year old out of Central Arizona College.

Dando has signed with USC.

In 2010, Dando threw in 15 games with a 4-2 record and a 3.54 ERA.

Central Arizona head coach Joe Wente had this to say about Dando last month:

Zach has improved so much this year. Last year, he struggled many times with his command. This year the command has been very good. He throws in the upper 80s to low 90s and can be very dominant at times. He has a very good slider and his change has really improved throughout the year. I am not sure what Zach’s plans will be this summer because the major league draft could give him another option.
