Bushue waits to hear for spring assignment

-A A +A
By Jonathan Stark

It was about nine months ago that Houston Astros’ legend Craig Biggio walked to the podium on draft day and called out Tanner Bushue’s name.

This spring, the former South Central High School pitcher is gearing up for his first full season in the minor leagues. Bushue was drafted last summer in the 2009 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft. The righty was taken in the second round, 69th overall, by the Astros.

Shortly after being drafted, Bushue signed a deal worth $530,000, plus about $1,200 a month.
