Lack of draft-day call fuels Chris Munnelly’s pitching

After being bypassed in Major League Baseball’s draft in June, Chris Munnelly is relishing his role in the Houston Astros organization as a shutdown relief pitcher. “So far, so good,” he said by telephone from Greeneville, Tenn. “I enjoy relieving. I think I’ve found my little niche here.” Munnelly, a graduate of North Carolina, will finish his first regular-season of professional baseball this week. (Winston-Salem Journal)
