The Milwaukee Brewers will have 40 picks available in the 2018 MLB Draft. We will keep track of all of the Brewers selections, as well as if they signed and their bonus if they signed, on this page. You can bookmark this page and check back regularly as the signings continue. Any time we update this page with a signing, we will also note it in the comments below. If you find information about a player that signed, also post it in the comments below along with a source and we will verify it and add it to the table as well.

Note: The Brewers lost their third round pick, as well as the corresponding bonus amount, with the signing of Lorenzo Cain in the offseason. They were also awarded a Competitive Balance pick following the second round of the draft.

While there’s no slot value to players picked after round 10, the Brewers can sign those players for up to $125,000 without counting against their cap. However, if they sign for over that amount, any amount over will count against the cap.

Here are the potential overage amounts and attached penalties for the Brewers this year. In the years since the bonus pools and overage penalties were instituted, teams regularly exceed their allotment and go into the overages. Last season, 21 of 30 teams went over their bonus pool. However, no team under the current system has exceeded the 5% threshold.
