Baseball America's Mock Draft

Baseball America released their second mock draft this afternoon, and here's who they have the Astros taking:

1-2: John Manuel says the Astros really like Carson Fulmer, but projects the D'Backs to take him with the 1-1. In this mock draft, Manuel has the Astros taking Vanderbilt shortstop Dansby Swanson, who sounds like he would be more at home at dinner with Jay Gatsby.

1-5: While Vandy pitcher Walker Buehler (a character from William Faulkner's "As I Lay Dying") is a sleeper pick here, Manuel has the Astros taking Preston Tucker's brother Kyle, an outfielder from Plant (FL) High School.

As an aside, Manuel has Brady Aiken going to the Dodgers at 1-24.
