Draft review (1st round) & Day 2 links

I almost titled this post: JUST GO OVER TO BERNIE’S CREW because that is where I am sending you.

Here is Jim’s post on Milwaukee’s two top picks from Monday night.

Brief Scouting Reports. Click the link for the full deal:

RHP Taylor Jungmann

The right-hander is one of the most accomplished pitchers in the NCAA. He compiled a 0.95 ERA prior to the postseason and was the undisputed ace on a very talented University of Texas pitching staff.

At 6-foot-6, Jungmann gets very good downhill movement on his pitches. His fastball sits 91-93 MPH and can touch higher. He works it down in the strike zone very well and generates a good amount of groundballs. That plus-fastball is complemented by a very good curveball that has defined, two-plane break and a changeup that has reportedly improved throughout the spring.

LHP Jed Bradley

Milwaukee drafted a 6-foot-4 lefty to pair with Jungmann in this draft class, and Bradley is also considered one of the more advanced and safe pitchers in the draft. Unlike Jungmann, however, Bradley put up disappointing numbers for much of his collegiate career and has only come on the scene recently.

He improved dramatically over the past year — especially in Cape Cod — and posted a 3.49 ERA with Georgia Tech. This includes a 9.73 K/9 strikeout rate and a 2.85 BB/9 walk rate. His fastball sits comfortably in the 91-94 MPH range and has reportedly touched 97 MPH. Bradley maintains his velocity deep into games due to his big frame and even has a bit of projection left in him.

And Day Two has begun.  Here is the Bernie’s Crew thread for the day.

To follow the draft LIVE! here is the MLB.com draft tracker.

Milwaukee has already taken Pitcher Jorge Lopez from the Caguas Military Academy in Puerto Rico with the 70th pick of the draft.

Draft, 2011: Day One

The “First Year Player Draft” starts tonight.  At 5pm CDT.  It continues for 50 rounds over the next three days.

The Brewers draft 12th and 15th in the 1st round,  70th in the second round, 100th in the third round, & 131 in the 4th round.

MLB.com has a website devoted to the draft.  They also have a video preview with Jonathan Mayo.

Draft tracker will have all the picks.

Okay, you are most interested in the Brewers picks and which of those picks will be with the Rattlers at some point in 2011.

Here is your required reading:
Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel has this article.

Bernie’s Crew….Just…Bernie’s Crew…or, if you want just one post over there try the Bernie’s Crew draft day thread.

That thread is where I found the link to this Jonathan Mayo article that projects the Brewers taking Sonny Gray, a pitcher out of Vanderbilt, and Tyler Anderson, a pitcher out of Oregon, with their first round picks.

I’m reluctant to send you to this mock draft at Baseball America because it’s from April 25…Come ON, guys…There’s gotta be a more recent one than that.  They have the Brewers taking George Springer (a pitcher out of UCONN) and Blake Swihart (a high school catcher out of the Cleveland area).

Round One is tonight.  Rounds 2 through 30 start tomorrow at 11:00am CDT.  Rounds 31-50 are Wednesday beginning at 11am CDT.
