With the 1st pick of the 37th Round (1119th overall), the Astros select 6'2" 194lb RHP Michael Dimock, a senior closer out of Wake Forest.
Wake's Head Coach:
"Michael emerged last year as a true closer. He has always featured a good hard fastball and a dominant slider, but now he commands them both and has added a solid changeup. Look for him to set the standard for end of the game guys in our league this year."
In 28 games in 2012, Dimock threw 42IP, with 38K:19BB, getting 12 saves to go along with a 3.43 ERA and a .248 BAA.
Coming out of high school, Dimock was ranked the 20th-best prospect in North Carolina, and was the All-State Player of the Year.
