2011 MLB amateur draft, SF Giants has the 29th pick

The drafting order for the 2011 MLB amateur draft was just released this past week, and the defending World Champs will have the 29th pick. One website that conducted a mock draft predicts that the Giants will select Jack Armstrong (RHP, 6'6, 225 lbs) from Vanderbilt University. The Pirates have the #1 pick, and it appears they may go after Anthony Rendon (3B, 5'11, 180 lbs) from Rice University.
