The Houston Astros have improved their farm system from worst to near first in the last couple of years.
On Thursday night, they'll have a chance to boost their young talent again when they pick first overall in the draft for the second consecutive year.
In 2012, they selected high school shortstop Carlos Correa with the No. 1 pick. This year they'll look to add another top-tier player to help with their long-term rebuilding process.
General manager Jeff Luhnow says they've whittled the list down to between three and eight players. Top prospects in this year's group include Oklahoma pitcher Jonathan Gray and Stanford pitcher Mark Appel.
