With the 1st pick in the 27th Round (819th overall), the Astros select 5'11" 180lb LHB CF Tanner Mathis, a Junior out of Ole Miss, originally from Lake Charles, Louisiana.
Perfect Game's Kendall Rogers tweeted:
Absolutely love that guy's game. Leaves it all on the field.
Mathis hit .359/.460/.416 with 18K:39BB and a perfect 8x8 on stolen bases as Ole Miss' leadoff hitter in 2012, making the All-Region team.
