With their 45th Round pick...

...The Astros select 6'0" 190lb Chris Epps, a senior OF out of Clemson.

Epps was Clemson's co-captain in 2011, and was the starting RF, but also played CF, and mostly DH. In his career, he drew a walk out of 3.97ABs.

In 2011, Epps hit .292/.422/.497, with 10HR, 42RBI, 58K:41BB in 195 ABs.

In November 2010, Epps said, about Clemson:

"Clemson seemed like the right fit for me. I didn't believe it was necessary to rush a pro career, plus, an education is so important. Clemson is one of the top programs in the nation, and I knew that playing here would help me gain the experience needed to have a future in pro baseball."
