Armstrong, drafted 99th overall by the Houston Astros in the June MLB Draft, elected to sign with the Astros instead of return for his senior year at Vandy. His signing bonus is $750,000, according to Baseball America.

Armstrong, a 6-foot-7 right-hander with a fastball that reaches the high-90s, was used as a reliever for the Commodores. His father, Jack Sr., spent seven seasons as a starter for four major league teams.
