Brewers select Nash Walters with third round pick in 2015 MLB draft

With their third round pick in the 2015 MLB draft -- number 90 overall -- the Milwaukee Brewers have selected Nash Walters, a right-handed prep pitcher out of Lindale High School, Texas.

The analysts on the MLB.com stream noted that Walters generally sat around the low-90s with his fastball, though it seems he can ramp up to the mid-90s at times. As he develops, it seems he could potentially be a guy who throws around 93-94 miles per hour. His secondary offerings, like many high school pitchers, need work. That's especially true with Walters as he didn't start pitching until last year.

Walters stands at 6'4" and 195, so there's room on his frame to potentially fill out. The Brewers haven't shied away from slimmer pitchers with Kodi Medeiros last year and Nathan Kirby this year also being thinner body types.

Baseball America listed Walters as the 34th-best prospect in Texas available for the 2015 draft. Minor League Ball did not have him in their list of the top-400 players available in the draft.

Nash is also committed to Texas A&M and seems fairly committed to them if his Twitter is anything to go by.

Recommended slot value for this selection is $646,300.
