Draft day is upon us. Check back early and often for updates.


Scouting director Bobby Heck and club president Tal Smith on draft day last year.

We’re only a few hours from the beginning of the 2010 First-Year Player Draft, which begins with round one at 6 p.m. CT.

The first round of the Draft will be televised on MLB.com and MLB Network, beginning with the Draft preview show at 5 p.m. CT.

The Astros will pick three times today. They have the eighth, 19th and 33rd overall selections.

Be sure to check back to this blog often tonight, as we’ll be posting pictures and videos that will capture the more poignant moments of draft day, including the moment the Astros make their first pick. You can also follow along on Twitter, where we will post the selections as soon as they’re made public and any other interesting news and notes we pick up in the Draft room.

Happy Draft Day!
