The Milwaukee Brewers had no picks in the third round of today’s round 3-10 chapter of the MLB Amateur Player draft, and in the fourth round they finally added a pitcher - left hander Aaron Ashby, a nephew of former big leaguer Andy Ashby.
Ashby is a 6’1” hurler who has had significant success at JuCo Crowder College. He had ten consecutive no hit innings in two starts earlier this season, and struck out 27 over that span. He was drafted last year by the Texas Rangers after his first season at Crowder, in the twenty-fifth round, but stayed for his second (and final) season in Joplin, Mo.
Ashby has committed to the University of Tennessee if he is unable to reach a contract agreement with the Brewers.
Jared Porter of the Joplin Globe provides a nice view of Aaron in this article from April 1st of this year.
