A family takes care of family, right? 

The Houston Astros drafted the grandson of Jose Cruz and the brothers of Carlos Correa and Alex Bregman.

Carlos' brother, J.C., was taken in the 33rd round and played at Alvin Community College. He has signed to play with Lamar University.

A.J., brother of Alex, is a left-handed pitcher selected in the 35th round during the final day of the 2018 MLB Draft. 

Alex Bregman had the luxury of breaking the news to his little brother that the Astros had drafted him. A.J. noticed something is his big brothers swing and told him, "Stay inside the ball a little bit more in bp, you're getting on top of it." 

"Why don't you check Twitter bro," Alex . "you just got drafted in the 35th round by the 'Stros."

A.J.'s face = priceless

The Astros also drafted Antonio Cruz, the grandson of Jose Cruz, who is signed to play for Rice.

Other famous 2018 MLB Draft picks include the University of Oklahoma's presumed starting quarterback, Kyler Murray, Christian Hackenberg's brother Adam, and Cannon King. Yes, Larry King's son was drafted by the White Sox in the 37th round.
