With their 48th Round pick...

...The Astros select 6'2" 215lb A.J. Murray, catcher out of Westfield High School in New Jersey.

Back in November 2010, Murray signed an LOI with Georgia Tech (meaning, "don't expect him to take 48th Round money.")

In 2010 Murray hit .482 with 12 doubles, 33 runs, 26 RBI and a .735 SLG.
