Astros sign fourth-round pick Gregor

The Astros signed their highest Draft pick to date when they agreed to terms Thursday with Vanderbilt University first baseman/outfielder Conrad Gregor, a source confirmed for MLB.com.

Gregor, taken in the fourth round of last week’s First-Year Player Draft, announced the signing on his Twitter account:

Gregor hit .308 with three homers and 48 RBIs and a .440 on-base percentage for the Commodores this year, starting 65 games. He becomes the 14th of Houston’s 50 Draft picks to sign. Contract terms weren’t disclosed, but the 107th overall pick has a prescribed slot bonus of $481,900.

Earlier Thursday, the Astros announced the signing of nine Draft picks, including Tony Kemp, who was Gregor’s former teammate at Vanderbilt.

The other announced signings Thursday were:  center fielder Jason Martin (eighth round), shortstop Thomas Lindauer (23rd round), left-hander Albert Minnis (25th round), right-hander William Chrismon (26th round), right-hander Pat Christensen (27th round), left-hander Randall Fant (29th round), right-hander Zachary Morton (32nd round) and right-hander Tyler Brunnemann (40th round) were all signed to contracts. <p>
