...The Astros select 6'1" 180lb Brad Propst, a senior RHP out of Oklahoma State.
Propst was 7-6 with a 3.66 ERA in 16 starts with three complete games, throwing a team-high 103.1IP, allowing 95H/42ER, 69K:20BB, with opponents hitting .247 against him.
In March, catcher Jared Womack said of Propst:
“He hits his spots constantly and just is a winner.”
How did he get to OSU? Let's ask head coach Frank Anderson:
"(OSU assistant Greg Evans) recruited him at Frank Phillips because we needed a shortstop, and he might be our best shortstop. But he can't hit at all. We tried him on the mound two years ago and had some success, and last year obviously it was even better. "This year, the first two-thirds of the season he was outstanding, but I think he's hit a little bit of a wall because the innings number is higher than he's ever been to."
