35-1059: Jimmy Sinatro

With the 1st pick in the 35th Round (1059th overall), the Astros select 5'10" 185lb catcher Jimmy Sinatro, out of Skyline HS in Washington. His father, Matt Sinatro, was a catcher for the Braves (who drafted him in the 2nd Round of the 1978 draft), A's, Tigers, and Mariners. Oh yeah, Matt Sinatro is also the Astros' catching coordinator.

Sinatro hit .281/.468/.421 for Skyline in his senior season, and was #39 on Baseball Northwest's Super Sixty baseball prospects. He is a first-team All-league selection from the Seattle Times. Sinatro is committed to Gonzaga.
