1.27- Lucas Sims, RHP, Georgia HS- Sims has a good fastball that can touch the upper-90s with a plus curveball and a changeup that can at least be average in the future. The Brewers like guys with big fastballs and great curveball, and Sims fits that criteria. He adds some upside pitching to the Brewers' farm system and could turn out to be a good #2 starter.
1.28- Joey Gallo, 1B, Nevada HS- The Brewers love guys with huge bats and although Gallo may have trouble making contact at times, his sheer power is undeniable. He has the power to hit 30-40 home runs per season and would add a high-ceiling bat to the Brewers' farm system.
1s.38- Stephen Piscotty, 3B, Stanford- Even though the purpose of this pick was to save money to pay for the first two picks, Piscotty is still a very solid pick. He provides solid defense at 3B and provides decent home run power- enough to hit for 20 home runs per season. He's pretty polished and should be able to contribute to the big league club in a couple of years.
2.92- Josh Henderson, OF, Virginia HS- Henderson is raw but has plenty of talent and has a very high ceiling. He'll need to take a while in the minors honing his skills, but he could turn out to be a very good player in the long run. He also doesn't have a particularly strong commitment to college so he should be signing for around slot.
3.122- Kenny Diekroger, INF, Stanford- He was once a projected 1st-round prospect but he has shown that he cannot stick at SS and doesn't have much power with the bat. Nonetheless he makes a lot of contact and should be a good utility infielder in a couple of years.
Overall this is a solid draft for the Brewers, a mixture of high-upside guys and quick-to-the-majors guys, and although the first two picks are going to be pricey, because the remaining picks should sign for around slot- or maybe even below- the Brewers should be able to afford all the picks with little difficulty. All of these players should add more talent to the Brewers farm system, which has taken a heavy hit after trading for Shaun Marcum and Zack Greinke.
