Brewers Agree To Terms With Second-Round Pick

Milwaukee has "come to terms with" second-round draft pick Jimmy Nelson, tweets Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.  Nelson, a right-hander from the University of Alabama, was taken 64th overall by the Brewers and is the highest-picked of the club's selections to have signed thus far.  First-rounder Dylan Covey is the only one of Milwaukee's first six picks that has yet to agree to a contract.

Nelson was 107th on Baseball America's Top 200 pre-draft rankings.  The pitcher was described as a "big-bodied potential innings-eater [who] can dominate off heavy fastball."
