I just got this in my email from the Media Relations department. I hope it's not a dupe, I didn't see this anywhere else.

The players in bold have signed, and their expected level of assignment is noted (Helena or Arizona).

Keep in mind that Etheridge (12th round), Bramhall (18th) and Scott (39th) are all playing in the College World Series and thus can't sign as of yet. We'll try to remind you when you can watch them during the tournament.

46 drafted, 26 signed.
26 Pitchers: (9 lefties 13 righties), 3 catchers, 3 1b, 1 2b, 4 3b, 5 ss, 8 of, {24 college kids, 22 High Schoolers)

ESPN has it that LaPorta signed. Who knows if it is accurate or not, but hopefully it is.

That list at ESPN seems like it must be in error...they also have Jonathan White, Merklinger, Hawn, Scarpetta all signed...while I'd love that, the big reason I distrust it is that they've got people still playing in the College World Series on there: Etheridge and Bramhall.

ESPN screwed that up and listed all the players the Brewers drafted in that item. They are totally incorrect, disregard it.

That's a shame. I was curious about that, but I figured it was possible that they only drafted guys they knew they could sign.

Dr. Wood, this post in our Draft Forum fills you in -- Paciorek is the son of former Milwaukee Brewer big leaguer Jim ('87), and nephew of long-time big-leaguer Tom.

Sorry, but we've mentioned in a few places on the site that the ESPN post is in error -- it lists every Brewer draft pick.

The one change just made in the draft pick post above is that we've learned that 18-year-old 5th round CF Caleb Gindl will apparently begin at Helena, not Arizona.

One thing I've always been curious about that I hope someone can answer: how is it decided whether a draft pick is sent to Helena as opposed to Arizona (or vice versa). Is one more advanced than the other? Or is it because one league is considered a "hitters" league and the other a "pitchers" league?

Thanks in advance!

Arizona is a complex-based rookie league, using spring training facilities in many cases. The players there are often fresh out of HS or a 2-year school, or very young signees from Latin America. Helena (and the Pioneer League) is described as 'Advanced Rookie' or, sometimes, R+. Most of the teams have a greater proportion of college kids, or prep draftees in their second year of pro ball. There are often exceptions, though, and a few years back the Brewers had no complex league team, so their HS draft choices went to Ogden or Helena in the Pioneer League.

Also note that there are teams in the league with Helena that still just send their HS kids there. That's one of the reasons Helena seems to contend every year and many of us don't get overly excited when we have a college kid come in and tears things up a bit.

I remembered Pacioreck a bit. Played LF for the no-no, and took a hit away from Murray in the 2nd inning. Never got the publicity that Yount's catch got.

Speaking of rookie leagues, what ever happened to the proposal to eliminate rookie ball? Making the Pioneer a Shot-Season league. Appalachian league would be a co-op league. And the AZ and GCL would become extended spring training.
