MILWAUKEE, WI (LEARFIELD-WSAU) The Brewers have signed their nine top draft choices from earlier this month. They now have 22 draft picks under contract, along with four recent non-drafted players.
Milwaukee’s latest signings include sixth-round first baseman Garrett Cooper from Auburn, seventh-round outfielder Omar Garcia of Miami-Dade, eighth-round high school outfielder Brandon Diaz from Florida, and ninth-round pitcher Tyler Linehan of Fresno State.
Ten of the newly-signed players will get competition right away with the Helena rookie league team. The others will be play on a smaller-scale rookie team in Phoenix.
