With their 9th Round pick...

...The Astros select 6'5" 215lb senior RHP, 22-year old Jonas Dufek, out of Creighton.

Dufek is from Omaha, and was a 2010 Second Team, All-MVC pitcher, and was Creighton's number one starter.

In 2011, Dufek led the Missouri Valley Conference in wins (12), ERA (2.08), and strikeouts (128), in 112.2IP (walking just 29) with a .198 BAA, and was a 3rd Team All-American.

Just last Friday, Dufek threw a complete game, 5H/1ER, 10K:1BB outing against Georgia in the NCAA Corvallis Regional.

“That game was exactly how a Creighton baseball game should be played -– fast-paced … and then finding a way to win. Early on, I was leaving quite a few of my pitches up and they put some balls in play, but my defense was behind me early.

“And then later on, I was able to settle down and strike a few more guys out. But the whole game, my defense made plays behind me that really worked for me.”
