Given the 1 day break I would think they did enough signability homework to have some confidence that they could sign their 11th round pick. If they can sign him it raises this draft for me a lot because it’s another guy in the top 20 prospect discussion.


Agreed. I think we'd be safe in projecting that Frelick, Black and Binelas would all instantly slot into our Top 20 prospects right away. Riggio I would have to figure would be the 4th guy who would be really close to that 20 spot. Would add some quality depth too to our system, which still badly needs it. And give us a bit of wiggle room if we need to trade a couple of our Top 20 guys in the next few weeks around the trade deadline.

Jace Avina sounds like a late bloomer and a keeper.

Some of these pitchers are tall and projectable.

Story from a year ago on Hunter Hollan, telling about how Covid affected his college/draft decision:

Will be interesting to see how many of these guys sign. It is weird to think the Brewers have drafted more JUCO pitchers than 4-year college pitchers thus far. I wonder if the Brewers weren’t the biggest fans of the depth in this year’s college pitching crop of if the Angels just drafted them all.

They may want the younger arms that come from the JuCO ranks so they can get them into the "pitching lab" earlier in their developmental years.

@BrewerNation

With the 507th overall pick of the 2021 MLB Draft, the Milwaukee #Brewers select Will Rogers, C, Mounds View HS (MN).

Rogers may not get drafted high enough to divert him from college but could develop into a premium prospect at Arizona State. He's a right-handed hitter with solid power and arm strength who needs to polish his hitting and receiving. He helped his cause by performing well at the inaugural MLB Draft Combine.

The guy whose BP impressed me the most at the MLB Draft Combine was Will Rogers. Just barrel after barrel and long line drives and fly balls up the middle. An
@ASU_Baseball commit.

Keep an eye on Will Rogers (
@willrogers219
He had moved up more than 100 spots in our latest draft rankings.
And he posted some of the best BP exit velos of any prep hitter at the MLB Draft Combine.

Looks like we may possibly ruin the season of ASU, should things go in the Brewers' way.

Isn't Yelich from Thousands Oaks (like Riggio). Have him reach out to Riggio to make him feel loved and wanted to be part of the Brewers contingent of California Strong.

Here are some articles on Will Rogers. Sounds like he’s a catcher-first, pitcher-second with good pedigree, but appears excited about attending ASU. We’ll see what happens:

Holton, Carter
Benedictine Military School (GA)
P
L/L
HS SR
5' 11" 195lbs
DOB:09/04/02

player-headshot
Benedictine Military School (Savannah, Ga.) has produced a pair of big leaguers in Hawk Harrelson and Mike Fitzgerald, but the Cadets have never had a pitching prospect of Holton's caliber. He has repeatedly dominated on the showcase circuit and can flash four plus pitches, though he comes with relief risk because of his size. He's the best pitcher in Vanderbilt's recruiting class, but may be more signable than a typical Commodores recruit and could land in the top three rounds. Holton ran his four-seam fastball up to 96 mph last summer at the Perfect Game All-American Classic and usually favors a two-seamer that sits in the low 90s with sink. He has two distinct breaking balls, with scouts slightly preferring his upper-70s slider to his mid-70s curveball, and both pitches have been more consistent this spring. He also has a low-80s changeup with some sink and keeps hitters off balance by mixing his pitches. Holton is doing a better job of staying more under control and pitching with less effort than he did last summer. He has some crossfire in his delivery that adds deception, especially against left-handers. He has a quick arm and throws all of his pitches for strikes, so the only real concern about him remaining a starter is his 5-foot-11, 195-pound frame.

The Angels used all 20 draft picks on pitchers, 19 of which were college pitchers. That seems incredible.

Carter Holton was apparently holding out for a certain $$ figure in the early rounds, so I guess the Brewers are taking a flyer here in case we fail to sign some other players and have excess cash to win him over. He’s a dominant pitcher first, but also hits well.

Brewers last pick was possibly the oldest guy ever drafted.

This fits the mold of drafting more than likely un-signables but because you drafted them get to be the team getting to know them deeper for a future draft potential. Would be surprised if the signed 5 or more of these kids. Basically you check on the top 10 you want to sign and work your way down with what you have to offer til 1 or more agree to it. Which is a great thought process in my opinion. Land a kid that you wouldn't have expected signing and likely with the restrictions, for less than expected. Gain your lottery ticket that possesses talent vs filler that fizzles at A ball talent. You save money on the kids that don't sign vs that filler you paid.

Brewers have been very good about locking up picks up. They pay close attention to the money as they go. Looking at Johnson’s track record, we can probably assume we will get at least 5 of these picks signed.

Riggio & Vire will probably top priority & they must know price could fit in budget.


Avina & Low are very interesting, hope we can at least land one of them


Rogers & Holton are late flyers on guys you probably can’t sign but build relationship & who knows…. Something goes wrong with Riggio & Vire… throw that money at one & see what happens.

From article with interview Avina

With a spot on the Wolf Pack's roster available to him next season, Avina said his ultimate goal is to be drafted and sign with a pro team in the coming months. It's a dream that has only come into focus as a potential reality in recent months


Looks like he is wanting to sign & get started.
