Of the eight Wisconsin natives who were selected this year, the Brewers grabbed three: UW-Milwaukee pitcher Joshua Uhen was the first Wisconsin-born player drafted when the Brewers took him on Friday, and they added Minnesota pitcher Drew Ghelfi (born in La Crosse) and Notre Dame outfielder Charlie Markson (born in Whitefish Bay).
37th round pick JaVon Shelby is Brewer coach John Shelby's son. After Saturday's game the elder Shelby told reporters "It's pretty evident that he's probably going to go to school, but still thankful. He's very excited about it."
Here's a quick breakdown of Brewer selections by position:
- Of the 40 players selected, 23 were pitchers. That includes four of the team's top five picks overall. Six pitchers (led by ninth round pick Tyler Linehan) were lefties and 17 were righties.
- Among the position players, four were shortstops, including second round pick Tucker Neuhaus.
- The Brewers picked three first basemen, including sixth round pick Garrett Cooper.
- The Brewers picked up eight outfielders, including five players listed as center fielders.
- You'd think the team would need some catchers to work with all these new pitchers but they only drafted two, and one of them was 13th round high schooler Tanner Norton.
The Brewers spent their first two picks on high schoolers but favored college players overall, selecting them with 24 of 40 picks. They selected 12 high schoolers and four junior college players.
The Brewers raided the closet of NAIA school Lee University, selecting three pitchers from the same small college. Lee finished third in the NAIA World Series this season.
Finally, and perhaps most surprisingly, the Brewers almost let the entire draft go by without selecting a Canadian. 33rd round shortstop Charles Leblanc was the 14th of 16 players selected from north of the border overall.
