Rd 11, #343) Ryan Clifford, OF, Crossroads HS (NC)

Clifford is sweet swinging left handed outfield prospect with an advanced approach and power at the plate. He was ranked the #92 prospect by MLB and will need a strong bonus to sign. Some scouts referred to him as a Seth Beer with athleticism according to MLB.com.

Rd 12, #373) Zach Dezenzo, SS, Ohio State

Dezenzo is a right handed hitting shortstop who put together a monster senior season slashing .319/.413/.701 with 19 HR in 51 games. He has some swing and miss to his game, but has some loud tools that make him a very intriguing senior prospect.

Rd 13, #403) Jackson Loftin, SS, Oral Roberts

Like Dezenzo, Loftin is also a right handed hitting shortstop who played four years in college. As a senior he hit .349 with a 1.019 OPS and 10 HR, 25 SB. He also performed well in the wood bat leagues in the summer including 76 SB in 101 games.

Rd 14, #433) Tommy Sacco, SS, TCU

Sacco is a switch hitting shortstop who played for TCU as a 5th year senior in 2022. This season he slashed .355/.443/.645 with 23 2B, 14 HR, 18 SB in 60 games. Another up the middle pick for the Astros.

Rd 15, #463) Joey Mancini, RHP, Boston College

Mancini pitched this season as a senior, but is only 21 years old. The right hander had a 4.70 ERA with 63 K in 76.2 innings but had a 3.34 ERA in 91.2 innings in summer leagues.

Rd 16, #493) Tim Borden, SS, Georgia Tech

Borden tranferred from Louisville to Georgia Tech for his senior season and put up some monster numbers slashing .335/.466/.689 with 20 HR in 59 games. Borden is listed at 6’2″ and 200 lbs.

Rd 17, #523) Garrett McGowan, 1B, Pittsburg State

McGowan is a lefty hitting first baseman who played as a 5th year senior in 2022. This season he crushed the ball slashing .399/.478/.755 with 20 2B, 18 HR, 79 RBI in just 52 games. He is 23 years old.

Rd 18, #553) Isaiah Jackson, OF, Cienega HS (AZ)

Jackson is an athletic outfielder standing at 6’3″ and possesses tremendous raw power. He has a commitment to Arizona State and will need a good bonus but his a very high upside prospect if the Astros can sign him.

Rd 19, #583) John Garcia, C, Grambling State

Garcia is a catcher from the Dominican Republic that played for Grambling State in 2022. The right hander slashed .409/.515/.679 with 18 2B, 10 HR, 67 RBI in 55 games as a 21-year-old this season.

Rd 20, #613) Ryan Wrobleski, C, Dallas Baptist

Wrobleski is a right handed hitting catcher that played three seasons at Dallas Baptist. His senior season was his best when he hit .318 with a .956 OPS and 8 HR in 38 games.
