Brewers Picks
1. Mark Rogers - RHP - Mt. Ararat (Maine) - ME - SIGNED
Fire-balling righty that has been clocked as high as 97 mph with good movement on his fastball. Similar style of pitcher to the Brewers Mike Jones. Has a smooth yet max effort delivery & is very athletic, and could be considered as an outfield prospect. Both his curveball and changeup have shown improvement this spring. His curveball works well in the mid-70s which is a nice change from his low to mid-90s fastball. He still needs to develop more consistency with this pitch, especially making sure that he maintains his arm slot & speed. He does maintain his arm speed well with his changeup, which has also shown improvement this year. It fades away from left-handed hitters. He also throws a split-fingered fastball, although this may be a pitch he is encouraged not to throw as a pro given the toll that pitch takes on an arm. In 38 innings pitched this spring he has allowed only 3 hits and 9 walks while striking out 99 batters. As a junior he went 11-2 with a 0.16 ERA with 158 strikeouts in 83 innings of work. He is a very good overall athlete that has excelled as his team's shorstop, both in the field and at the plate. He also is one of the top hockey players in the nation, and has also lettered in soccer. Rogers is a very good student in the classroom, and has committed to play for the Miami Hurricanes.

2. Yovani Gallardo - RHP - Trimble Tech (TX) - TX - SIGNED
Relatively unknown pitching prospect that burst onto the scene last summer after flashing a 93 mph fastball, touching the mid-90s, and a hard breaking, mid-70s curveball at the Area Code Games. Gallardo has good size and shows a decent overall delivery. His mechanics need a little bit of work, and he could add a few more ticks to his fastball once he does so while filling into his body. He has a very live arm, and the ball explodes out of his hand. Committed to TCU.

3. Josh Wahpepah - RHP - Cowley County JC - AR - SIGNED
Great pitcher's build at 6'4", 185 pounds. Has an interesting delivery that creates a fair amount of deception, although with every unorthodox delivery there are some mechanical concerns. Despite his delivery, he has enjoyed a significant bump in velocity in each of the past two years. This year he worked comfortably in the 90-95 mph range, with great sinking movement on his fastball. He needs to improve his breaking pitches, although he does show good feel for his changeup. He is also praised for his work ethic, and was drafted by the Tigers last year. Committed to play for the Texas Longhorns next year if he doesn't sign. Was teammates with Brewers farmhand Clay Blevins at Cowley County and in high school.

4. Josh Baker - RHP - Rice - TX - SIGNED
Baker's name often gets lost when talking about Rice pitchers. Baker started his collegiate career at Alabama, but then transferred after his freshman year. He comes from an extremely athletic family as his father played in the NFL, his uncle played in the Major Leagues while his brother-in-law is Astros outfielder Lance Berkman. At 6'5", 210 pounds Baker has the perfect body for a pitcher. He went 8-0 as a sophomore for Rice, and as a junior he has assumed the role as spot starter & long reliever. He doesn't have the pure stuff of any of his 3 more heralded teammates, but he throws in the 89-91 range with a good slider. He struggles with control at times, but when he's on he can be dominant.

5. Angel Salome - C - George Washington HS - NY - SIGNED
Short yet extremely strongly built catcher. His arm alone has drawn attention, as it might be one of the best pure tools available of all draft eligible prospects. Shuts down the opposing team's running game. On top of his strong arm he has a very quick release. He has very good overall athleticism for a catcher, is quick behind the plate and has good speed. Playing 3B or even 2B isn't out of the range of possibilities if he can't cut it behind the plate. He does need to work on his overall catch & throw skills, and despite putting up a monster year at the plate, there are some concerns about his offensive abilities. His swing can get long at times, and he can get fooled by breaking pitches. Has a similar build & overall profile to Ivan Rodriguez, whom he models his game after. Played at the same high school as Manny Ramirez, and is a native of the Dominican Republic. Committed to play for Gulf Coast CC.

6. Steven Chapman - CF - Marianna HS - FL - SIGNED
Played for the Junior National team for Team USA baseball last summer. A good all around baseball athlete whose skills are highlighted by a polished bat. Has a smooth stroke from the left side of the plate with good gap power & decent over the fence power. Should hit for a high average and also displays a discplined eye. He also has good speed in the outfield and on the basepaths, and shows good instincts in both areas. His arm ranks as average. He is a similar prospect to Colin Curtis from a year ago, who is now at Arizona State, and like Curtis, Chapman could enjoy immediate success at the college level given his advanced approach should he honor his commitment to play for the Auburn Tigers.

  http://www.brewerfan.net/ViewFeaturedAmateurProfil
7. Craig Langille - RHP - Charles P Allen HS - NS - SIGNED
Tall and lanky righty with long limbs and a projectable frame. Throws from a 3/4 delivery, and is your classic sinker/slider pitcher. His sinking fastball works well in the high-80s, and his slider when its on shows late bite. He also shows a good feel for a changeup that also has late, breaking action, and repeats his delivery well. A good overall athlete with a smooth delivery, Langille has plenty of room to improve.
8. Brandon Parillo - LHP - Marina HS - CA - SIGNED
Shorter yet stocky left-handed pitcher with strong, muscular legs. His velocity has increased into the low-90s this spring. He shows a very good curveball and a sinking changeup. He throws all 3 pitches for strikes with good overall command and an advanced feel for pitching. Committed to play for Long Beach State.
9. Derek DeCarlo - RHP - Florida International - FL - SIGNED
Has a great, projectable pitcher's frame at 6'4" 170. Long legs and arms that generate create extension on the mound. Throws from a high 3/4s delivery. His fastball explodes out of his hand and has late life in the strike zone. He also throws a sharp curveball and an improving changeup. He has had some health issues, otherwise he may have been taken a lot higher than where he was.

  http://www.fiu.edu/~athletic/basestat03/teamcume.h
10. Steven Sollmann - 2B - Notre Dame - OH - SIGNED
College senior that has done nothing but produce in his four years at Notre Dame. He is a good leader on the field, and does everything well. He plays very good defense and makes all of the routine plays. He has decent speed, stealing 38 bases during his junior year, and a live drive stroke at the plate. He also runs the bases very well. There isn't much home run power in Sollmann's swing, but he'll hit a few to the gaps. He was drafted by the A's last year in the 32nd round

  http://und.collegesports.com/sports/m-basebl/mtt/s
11. Lenny Leclercq - SS - West Vigo HS - IN - SIGNED
Extremely athletic SS prospect that has solid tools across the board. His speed probably highlights his toolset, as he also runs track, reaching the state finals in the 100 meter dash. He has a strong arm, quick feet, and positions himself well on defense. He has been extremely productive at the plate with good power potential. He's committed to Indiana, and is considered a tough sign.

12. Andrew Albers - LHP - John Paul II HS - SK
  http://kykernel.com/dynakernel/story.php?id=1440
13. Angel Ayala - 1B - Lino Padron Rivera HS - PR - SIGNED
Exciting power prospect with a very large, barrel-chested frame. Has a long, uppercut swing that can lead to a lot of strikeouts, but when he makes contact he can hit the ball a long, long way. He has some athleticism and an average arm, so he isn't necessarily stuck at first base. Ayala could be a DFE candidate.
14. Grant Richardson - 1B - Washington State - WA - SIGNED
Powerfully built first base prospect that is a proven run producer. Led the Pac-10 in RBIs this year with 68, along with posting a league-leading slugging percentage (.544). He also batted .311 with a .418 OBP, so he has a knack for drawing walks. He added 13 home runs, and despite being a big slugger, he only struck out 23 times in 206 at-bats.

  http://wsucougars.collegesports.com/sports/m-baseb
15. David Johnson - RHP - UCLA - CA - SIGNED
Extremely well built righty with a solid 3-pitch repertoire. He throws his fastball in the high-80s with good, late movement in the zone. He also throws a low-80s slider that projects as an average to above average MLB pitch. He mixes in a curveball that also shows good life, and is close to being a MLB average pitch.
  http://uclabruins.collegesports.com/sports/m-baseb
16. Alexandre Periard - RHP - St Eustache HS - QB
Polished Canadian right-handed pitcher with a solid 3-pitch repertoire. He is a very advanced pitcher for his age, as he is only 16 years old, with good control and an aggressive nature on the mound. His fastball offers good movement thrown in the 89-91 range, with an improving curveball and changeup.
  http://www.lakeshore-online.com/en/articles/system
17. Lorenzo Cain - LF - Madison County HS - FL
Athletic, well built outfield prospect with good size and great speed that could be a DFE candidate as he has committed to play for Tallahassee CC next year.
18. Darren Ford - CF - Vineland HS - NJ
Extremely fast, athletic centerfield prospect that could be a likely DFE candidate.
  http://www.philly.com/mld/inquirer/sports/high_sch
  http://www.thedailyjournal.com/news/stories/200406
19. Josh Brady - LF - Texas Tech - TX - SIGNED
Played his first 2 collegiate seasons at Southern Nevada CC, and was a big part of the team's JC World Series Championship hitting .346 with 16 doubles and 6 home runs while stealing 31 bases. At his first year at Texas Tech he hit .362 with 19 doubles and 20 home runs, stealing 34 bases in 38 attempts. Brady has a very good stroke from the right side of the plate with gap power and very good speed.
  http://texastech.collegesports.com/sports/m-basebl
20. Jose Garcia - RHP - Indian Hills CC - FL
Very tall righty with a strong, wiry frame. Throws on a very good downhill plane. His fastball works in the 86-91 range with the body to add more velocity with tighter mechanics. He also throw a very good, late-breaking slider in the 80-82 range. He has great work ethic, and loves to play the game. A possible DFE candidate.
21. Andrew Bowman - LHP - Dakota Ridge HS - CO
Polished lefty that has been moving up the charts the past few years. Has increased his velocity from the low 80s to the 87-90 mph range over the past year and a half. He shows a very easy & consistent delivery, and shows good command. He has a nice, tight spin on his overhand curveball, and also has a developing changeup. Similar overall pitcher in size & stuff to Rangers LHP prospect John Danks, a first-rounder from a year ago. Given his polish he could enjoy immediate success as a pro or in college, as he has committed to play for Arizona State, and that is likely the reason why he fell so far as he did.
  http://www.brewerfan.net/ViewFeaturedAmateurProfil
22. Matthew Kretzchmar - RHP - San Pedro HS - CA
Strong, durable frame with an aggressive nature. Has improved his delivery, curveball and changeup over the past year. His curveball shows very good break when it's on. His fastball shows late sinking movement.
23. Tony Festa - 3B - UC Riverside - CA - SIGNED
5th year senior that should be a relatively easy sign. A high energy player that plays all out all the time. He leads by example, and has a good head on his shoulders. Somewhat limited tool-wise, and as below average speed but he's a smart baserunner & overall ballplayer. Has a good left-handed swing with some power potential. He makes all the routine plays at 3B defensively, and has an average arm.

24. Jose Delgado - RHP - PR Baseball Academy - PR
Lanky righty that needs to develop his body and add more weight for sustained durability. Because of that he has a lot of room to improve. He shows a very fluid delivery with good arm speed. His 3/4s arm slot generates a fair amount of sink with his fastball, and he may profile as the prototype sinker/slider pitcher type down the road. A likely DFE candidate.
25. Sean Morgan - RHP - Sugarland HS - TX
Big, strong athlete with a powerful frame. As a right-handed pitcher he has a max effort delivery that produces 89-91 fastballs with good, late sinking action. He also shows a sharp slurve and a developing changeup that needs more consistency. He also profiles well as a left-handed hitting first-baseman, and may take his 2-way talents to Tulane. He is considered a tough sign, not only as a talented ballplayer, but as a strong student. Given his max effort delivery & promising 2-pitch repertoire, he could be an exciting closer prospect down the road.
  http://tulanegreenwave.collegesports.com/sports/m-
26. Dustin Timm - RHP - U of Nebraska - NB
Tall & thin righty that is still developing. Missed most of the 2003 season due to Tommy John surgery, and only now is he starting to re-gain his velocity. Throws in the 90-93 range with ease, with a fluid motion that could add a few more ticks as he builds back his arm strength. His fastball also shows great sinking action. He has a nice foundation for both his slider & changeup, although both pitches need more development. Could possibly be a DFE candidate through next spring as a 5th year senior.
  http://www.huskers.com/ViewArticle.dbml?SPSID=105&
27. Ty Pryor - RHP - Olympia HS - FL
Big, strong athlete that entered the season as a talented switch-hitting catching prospect. Was moved to the mound given his special right arm. Touched 94 this spring, and worked well in the low-90s with plenty of room to get better. Many believe he could touch the high-90s with more time spent on the mound. Has very good arm action and has a good foundation on both his slider & changeup, and overall he works well down in the zone with late, downward movement on all of his pitches. He still is very raw, and his body could use better conditioning. He also is a very good student, and might be tough to pry away from South Florida.
28. Ronnie Prettyman - 3B - Cal State Fullterton - CA
A good overall athlete with average speed. He's polished defensively around the 3B bag with good feet, range and a solid average arm. As a left-handed hitter he is short & quick to the ball, makes good contact and has some gap power. He was a big part of Cal State Fullerton's run in 2003 with numerous clutch hits. He projects to be a utility player down the road, and may be able to play a little 2B and possibly SS in a pinch.
  http://sports.fullerton.edu/baseball/2004/personne
29. Ryan Patterson - RHP - Lake Cowichan HS - BC
30. Brian Johnson - RHP - East Islip HS - NY
Played quarterback for his high school football team. Has touched the low to mid-90s, but works comfortably in the mid to high-80s. Focusing on baseball should help him find more consistency with his fastball command & velocity. Also shows a very good curveball. A DFE candidate that is expected to attend Manatee CC.
  http://schoolsports.theinsiders.com/2/255516.html
31. Kanekoa Texeira - RHP - Kamehameha HS - HI
Aggressive, well proportioned athlete with a strong yet projectable frame. Has touched the low-90s, but works comfortably in the mid to high-80s. His fastball also shows good, late sinking action. He is relatively polished, knowing how to hit his spots and he throws an advanced changeup with good, consistent arm speed. He needs to work on his breaking ball at this point in time, and may have to learn how to throw a slider. Committed to play for Hawaii.
  http://www.mauinews.com/sports/story/0610202004_sp
32. Joel Needham - RHP - U of California - Davis - CA - SIGNED
Big, strong righty that projects as a short or middle reliever down the road, as he was used at Cal-Davis. He has a good fastball that works in the 88-92 range. He really needs to work on the consistency of his offspeed pitches, and it wouldn't hurt to tighten them up a bit so they show better break as they tend to flatten out. Similar pitching prospect to Josh Alliston in size & stuff.

33. Luis Bernal - RHP - Pima CC - AZ - SIGNED
34. Krzysztof Dabrowiecki - RHP - Ursula Franklin Academy - ON
Known as Kris. Projectable righty with a great pitcher's body. Has very good mechanics and a good arm with clean, loose arm action in his delivery. He's a very fast worker on the mound. His fastball works well in the 87-90 range with good, late sinking action, and has seen a boost in velocity over the last year. His slider shows good, late movement in the upper 70s to low 80s, and also mixes in a curveball and a changeup. He throws strikes, and at this point in time, despite his size, he is more of a finesse pitcher that hits his spots while changing speeds. He has committed to play for either D1 program Northeastern or Chipola JC. More than likely he'll attend Chipola, and therefore will be a DFE candidate to follow through next spring.
35. Chris Copot - C - Diefenbaker HS - AB
36. Stephen Barnes - RHP - First Coast HS - FL
Good sized righty that can touch 90 with his fastball and shows a very good curveball. He has improved his mechanics the past couple of years, and at some point he should be able to pitch consistently in the 90 mph range. A DFE candidate that is committed to play for Lake City CC.
  http://www.lakecity.cc.fl.us/departments/athletics
37. Shawn McCraw - C - Alvin HS - TX
38. Donald Jordat - RHP - Summit Christian HS - FL
Polished, physically mature righty. Works well in the 89-90 range with good sink on his fastball. Can touch the low-90s, and his frame doesn't offer much in the way of physical improvement. He also throws a pretty good curveball and changeup, but needs to tighten up both pitches to be successful as a pro.
39. Jeremy Bloor - LHP - Grand Rapids CC - MI
40. Chris Rickey - LHP - Reno HS - NV
Aggressive left-handed pitcher that won't back down from any situation. Committed to play for the University of Nevada, but will consider a JC to remain under the control of the Brewers through next spring as a DFE candidate.
41. Jimmy Coker - LHP - Spartanburg Methodist College - SC
  http://www.smcsc.edu/athletics/men/baseball/player
42. Joshua Louis - RHP - Temple JC - TX
43. Brandon Jasper - 3B - Newport Harbor HS - CA
Talented athlete with a strong frame. He has shown very good hitting skills from both sides of the plate with intriguing power potential, and a short, compact stroke with good bat speed. He is also expected to be a very good 3B defensively since he is expected to move over from SS at the pro or college level.
44. Jon Mungle - OF - Mississippi St - MS
Mungle was drafted by the Brewers in 2003 in the 23rd round. He missed most of this season after a season ending knee injury. Since he redshirted his freshman year, he likely will return to Mississippi State getting an extra year of eligibility as a redshirt 5th year senior, and will remain under control of the Brewers as a DFE candidate. When healthy Mungle has a very smooth left-handed swing with intriguing power potential. He had a better sophomore year in 2002 when he hit .341 than he did as a junior in 2003 when he hit .260. If Mungle returns fully healthy next season and starts hitting like he can he could be an exciting prospect to follow next spring.
  http://www.mstateathletics.com/0,5604,1_24_0_56565
45. Deik Scram - LF - Cowley County CC - KS
Exciting shortstop prospect with a good bat. Hit .363 from the left-side of the plate with a .481 on-base percentage and a .643 slugging percentage as a freshman at Cowley College. Another interesting DFE candidate to follow through next spring.
  http://www.cowleytigers.com/baseball/basescram.htm
46. Louis Metzner - RHP - No School - ON
47. Derek Miller - LHP - U of Vermont - VT
Older lefty that redshirted his freshman season after an illness, and missed 2004 after elbow surgery in the fall of 2003. He likely will earn another redshirt year of eligibility, and should be under the control of the Brewers through next spring as a DFE candidate. He has a good fastball for a lefty with a great curveball with good control. Could be a late-inning reliever/lefty specialist type down the road.
  http://www.uvm.edu/~sportspr/?Page=News&storyID=51
  http://www.uvm.edu/athletics/baseball/?Page=bsbros
48. Brandon Glover - CF - McKinney HS - TX
Talented, athletic centerfield prospect. He is best known for his polished defensive prowess, as he shows natural instincts in CF with good speed and a good arm. At the plate he is rather raw, although he does show good bat speed and decent power potential as his body fills out. Committed to play for Texas A&M, so he may be a tough sign as a 48th rounder.
  http://sports.tamu.edu/press/pressRelease.php?PRID
49. Shane Buriff - LHP - Sickles HS - FL
Strong lefty with limited athleticism. Is extremely slow, but throws in the upper 80s and has touched the low-90s on occasion. Is a fearless bulldog on the mound that attacks batters.
50. Chad Miller - 1B - Chandler-Gilbert CC - AZ
Miller was drafted last summer by the Brewers in the 33rd round, and they controlled his signing rights through this spring as a DFE candidate. He hit .287 for Chandler-Gilbert CC, but didn't show the kind of power he's capable of. The Brewers obviously like him enough to draft him again this year in hopes that he improves his power production next year as the Brewers will once again retain his signing rights until a week before next year's draft.
