2006 Draft: 16th Pick

Quote:
MILWAUKEE -- With the First-Year Player Draft now days away, Brewers scouting director Jack Zduriencik is anything but bummed about dropping out of the top 10.

"Hopefully, we drop considerably more next year," Zduriencik said. "That would mean good things have happened."

Major League teams draft in reverse order of their record, and by virtue of an 81-81 finish last season, Milwaukee owns the 16th overall selection in the first round. The Brewers have not drafted that low since taking right-hander Jeff D'Amico with the 23rd selection in 1993, and the Brewers have not picked out of the top 10 since taking Mike Jones at No. 12 in 2001.

The relatively low position means a tougher job for Zduriencik and the Brewers' amateur scouting staff. Beginning with Prince Fielder at No. 7 overall in 2002, the Brewers have had only a handful of teams drafting ahead of them. In 2003, only the Devil Rays had an earlier pick, and the Brewers were able to land Rickie Weeks at No. 2.

This year, Brewers scouts needed a wider focus.

"I don't think you worry about that," said Zdurencik, who assumed his current post prior to the 2000 draft. "I think you approach it the same way. There might be three or four guys that you don't go see because the consensus is that they're going way ahead of you. But you have to be careful with that, too. Sometimes guys slide."

Later in the article, "'To find those kind of players with the 16th pick in the draft is not going to happen,' Brewers general manager Doug Melvin said last winter.". Sounds real optimistic. Let's see what comes our way.

Jeremy Jeffress, straight outta high school.

From the article..

Quote:
Jeffress, 18, is a 6-foot-0, 175-pounder from Halifax County Senior High School in Virginia who has been clocked in the triple-digits but reportedly sits more comfortably in the 90-mph range. Other notable players selected 16th overall include Scott Kazmir by the Mets in 2002, Lance Berkman by the Astros in 1997 and Shawn Green by the Blue Jays in 1991.

Sounds pretty intriguing to me.

Your Brewers also drafted the Pac 10 player of the year and 2nd team all american, Cole Gillespie from Oregon State University.
