Milwaukee Brewers select Mario Feliciano 75th overall

With their third selection of the 2016 MLB Draft the Brewers selected Puerto Rican catcher Mario Feliciano.

The Brewers made three selections on the first day of the 2016 MLB Draft. Their third, the 75th overall pick, was a high school aged catcher out of Puerto Rico, Mario Feliciano. He's a bat first catching prospect with above average to plus power potential. It's difficult to say at this point whether he can improve defensively enough to stay behind the plate. But if he can, and the bat develops, he could be a special player. If he can't improve defensively the bat may still play elsewhere.
