Please use this thread to share your thoughts, links, stories, pictures and anything else on the Brewers' picks on draft day from rounds 6 through 20. Please do not start separate threads to discuss the individual picks.

Please use the in-draft thread to talk about the picks, similar to a game thread.

6 (174): @Brewers select Louisville SS Devin Hairston. http://m.mlb.com/video/topic/210960834/v1452382083 … #MLBDraft

Though he has been one of the best players on one of college baseball's best teams this spring, Hairston creates mixed opinions among scouts. Those who like him think he could go as high as the third round and envision him as a big league utilityman and perhaps even a regular if he hits enough. Those who don't worry about his lack of size and speed and can't find a profile he fits. A versatile defender who can play anywhere in the infield, Hairston committed just two errors in his first 58 games this spring. He doesn't have great range at shortstop and his arm hasn't bounced all the way back since surgery to transpose a nerve in his elbow during the fall, yet he still finds a way to make plays. He likely will fit better at second base in pro ball, though his instincts are exceptional and his proponents won't bet against him being able to handle shortstop. Hairston occasionally can turn on balls, but at 5-foot-7 and 170 pounds he knows he won't be a power hitter. He concentrates on making contact from the right side of the plate and has good bat-on-ball skills. He doesn't walk much and he's a below-average runner, so he'll contribute little offensively beyond his batting average.

Devin Hairston is Nick Allen sized, another utility type in this draft. Another of my top 101 down to 11 left

And Devin Hairston goes one pick after Dalton Guthrie — similar kind of guys. Winners, defense-first guys. #Brewers

This is the first one that's puzzling to me. He's not a senior, so it's not necessarily a money saving move. But there doesn't seem to be much projection to him. Awfully small too.

Love it watched a couple times and he had a ton of solid contact. Was hoping for him obviously later, but hopefully he came cheap like others have said.

He isn't a senior, but seems like an attempt to save some pool money. If not I really don't like it. His defense isn't that good and his offensive game is extremely limitted. Why draft a utility player Top 10 rounds?

I'm going to assume you're correct and it's a money saving move. Must have an idea of what it'll take to get him. Otherwise, this one doesn't seem to make a ton of sense.

Maybe he has 60 grade scrap and grit.

I guess it really isn't even a question because it will save money. He is a severely limitted ceiling guy so going back for his senior year will just make him a senior sign next year. Not like he is going to increase his stock at this point.

Agreed that this is the first head-scratcher, at least for me. A second baseman who has fringe gap power, doesn't walk, and is a below average runner to boot. Maybe they think he can stick at shortstop.

Hope they got him cheap.

I guess I am a little surprised that is the best pool saver we could find.

Anyone gone through and estimated what they think the Brewers may have available for surplus pool money so far?

This guy threw at his own son in a father son game

I doubt they have much if any. I'd bet most of these signs are pretty close to slot.

Scooter Gennett replacement?

Could hit for a solid average? Check. Is not going to ever take a walk? Check. Has negative value defensively? Check. Is a tiny human? Check.

Looks like he fills all the needed requirements to be the next Scooter. Looks like we'll be seeing a 4 home run game out of this dude in the future.

Hairston was actually ranked higher than he was drafted on most of the lists. It's interesting, though, that some of the scouting reports seem more negative than you'd expect given the rankings.

Bowden Francis, interesting pick in the 7th. Like the three pitch repetoire, not crazy about the weird delivery, but what do I know.

The Brewers now have a Bowden and a Bowdien (Bubba Derby).

Probably a bullpen guy. At least that is what comes to mind when I look at him overall.

Interesting, the Dodgers just took Zach Pop. White Sox also took Evan Skoug.

Really? Even if he does have three real pitches?

He just gives off that vibe to me. Probably because that is usually where one would see a sinkerballer pitcher. Also fits the profile of a workhorse at 6-5 235.

In all honestly you could say every pitcher we draft is probably a bullpen guy because most will be. That is how it works.
