Drafted in the 20th round (604th overall) by the Houston Astros in 2004
The Athletics have selected C J.R. Towles in the last two drafts, in the 32nd round out of high school in 2002 and in the 23rd round out of Collin County (Texas) CC in 2003. Towles ranked fourth among national juco hitters with a .484 average last year, then transferred to North Central Texas after Collin County disbanded its program. Though he slipped to .340 this spring, his bat still has appeal, as do his catch-and-throw skills. He'll head to Oklahoma State if he doesn't turn pro this summer.
