Astros sign Tanner Mathis

The Astros have signed undrafted free agent Tanner Mathis out of Ole Miss.

Mathis was initially drafted by the Astros in the 27th Round of the 2012 draft after he hit 359/.460/.416 with 18K:39BB as Ole Miss' leadoff hitter. The next day, he was unsure about what to do, but a couple of hours later tweeted that he was headed back to Ole Miss to lead the Rebels to Omaha.

In 61 games for Ole Miss in 2013, Mathis hit .280/.409/.307 with 18K:34BB
