Braves and Astros Draft Rosters

The two teams spring training complexes were in Orlando in 2016. The Astros will be moving east for 2017 but myworld decided to lump them in the same pool. The Braves have a pretty solid lineup, especially if they move Brandon Belt and Brandon Drury to the outfield. The starting pitching falls short. The Astros early drafts are pretty weak. In 2007 the only players to make the major leagues are the three players they could not sign early in the top ten portion of the draft. Below are the rosters from the two teams if they only relied on players drafted from 2005 to present.
