    A nice story on Davis Vainer (21), who lives with alopecia.



    Vainer intends to transfer to Arizona to work on his Master's.



    Garrett Gayle (12) plans on signing.

    Nix signing is a surprise. Love it when Houston gets late round picks to sign.

    Danny Cody (17):



    Preston Pavlica's (24) Instagram bio says "Astros organization"

    Arizona Daily Star: Davis Vainer (21) "is expected to follow through on his transfer plan."

    As I've mentioned earlier, Vainer intends to transfer to Arizona to work on his Master's degree.

    Luhnow just said on the broadcast that they will go overslot for Barber and they believe he was a 2nd round talent at the very least. Also said they will save some money from the first three selections to make that happen.
