Astros sign Chris Munnelly

The Astros have signed undrafted free agent pitcher Chris Munnelly out of the University of North Carolina.

Munnelly is a 6'2" 200lb RHP who went 6-0 for North Carolina in 22 appearances (eight starts) with a 2.39 ERA/1.04 WHIP. He allowed 36H/16ER, 63K:27BB in 60.1IP and a .172 BAA.

All of their front-office guys got to see us pitch early in the season, and I think that gave us a little bit of an edge. Once they saw us, they could follow us the rest of the year. 

Munnelly went to Forsyth County Day School, the alma mater of 2011 8th Round pick Brandon Culbreth.
