Astros' Myles Straw: Contract selected by Astros
Straw slashed .257/.349/.317 with 35 stolen bases in 38 attempts after his promotion to Triple-A Fresno in mid-June. Base stealing is an area in which the organization wanted him to be more aggressive, and Straw responded with 70 steals between Double-A Corpus Christi and Fresno, nearly double his total from the previous season. The 23-year-old is unlikely to work his way into the Astros' outfield rotation, but could be a late-inning pinch runner given his baserunning prowess in the minors.
