Draft Notes: Brewers, Padres, Nationals, Giolito

Tonight's draft notes, with the latest news up top..

  • ‪The Brewers‬ signed third-rounder Zach Quintana for $325K, just under the suggested pick value of $385K, tweets Jim Callis of Baseball America.  The high school right-hander out of Nevada boasts a 90-95 mph fastball and a hard breaking ball.
  • The Padres‬ signed second-rounder Dane Phillips for $450K, significantly less than the pick value of $734K for the No. 70 pick.  The catcher/first baseman is said to have a sweet bat and has a chance to stay behind the plate.
  • The Nationals gave first-round pick Lucas Giolito a grand tour of Nationals Park earlier today, writes Mark Zuckerman of NatsInsider.com.  The 17-year-old right-hander is a UCLA commit.
