Following last week's draft, the Brewers have taken a step forward in getting this year's draft class ready to go. Yesterday, three of the Brewers draft picks were in Milwaukee to take their physicals and sign their contracts. First-round pick Trent Clark, second-round pick Cody Pnce, and third-round pick Nash Walters were all in Milwaukee and were introduced at a press conference yesterday. Trent Clark and Nash Walters are heading to Arizona, while Cody Ponce is going to Helena. It's their first steps through the system, that will hopefully start at rookie ball and end around five years later in Milwaukee. We won't know if these were good choices for a few years, but these players will get their chance to make it to the majors.

Yesterday's Results

Royals 8, Brewers 5

Kyle Lohse's descent this year just continued on Monday night. He allowed five earned runs in five innings on five hits, two walks, and two strikeouts. Meanwhile, the final score doesn't show how much of a blowout this game was. The Royals led 8-2 at one point. Jonathan Lucroy did drive in three runs on two hits in the loss, and Martin Maldonado had a pinch hit that drove in two runs.
