Shaping the future: Look back at the Brewers' first-round draft picks under David Stearns' leadership

  • 0

For the second straight year and fourth time in six drafts under president of baseball operations David Stearns, the Milwaukee Brewers chose a college outfielder with their first pick in the MLB Draft, which got underway Sunday night.

By virtue of their 29-31 record during the pandemic-shortened 2020 season, the Brewers held the No. 15 overall pick in this year's draft, which they used to select center fielder Sal Frelick of Boston College.

Frelick hit .359/.443/.559 with six home runs and 13 stolen bases in 48 games as a junior for the Eagles this season. He was ranked 11th among all draft-eligible players by MLBPipeline.com.

"Sam's a great player," Brewers scouting director Tod Johnson said. "We're really excited we got him at 15."

The Brewers also held the third pick in Competitive Balance Round A, No. 33 overall, which they used on Tyler Black, a junior outfielder from Wright State University.

The draft continued Monday with rounds 2-10. The final 20 rounds will be held Tuesday, ahead of the All-Star Game scheduled for later that night at Coors Field in Denver.

Here's a look back at the Brewers' first-round selections in the previous five drafts:
