25-736: Zach Davis

With the first pick of the 25th Round of the 2014 MLB Draft (736th overall) the Astros select LHP Zach Davis out of the University of Central Missouri.

Davis is a 6'3" 220lb senior who transferred to UCM after one year at Longview Community College. This season he put up a 3-2 record with a 1.98 ERA in 25 games (41 IP) out of the bullpen, featuring 51:13 K:BB, 12 saves, and a .178 BAA. Last month, he was named Second Team All-MIAA as a reliever.

Davis actually pitched at Minute Maid Park back in February, retiring the only batter he faced to earn the save and nail down a 3-2 win for UCM over Winona State.
