The Brewers have reached a deal with first-round pick Garrett Mitchell, who posted earlier today that he’s headed to Milwaukee to finalize things. The bonus lands in the realm of the slot value of $3,242,900, MLB.com’s Adam McCalvy tweets.
Mitchell drew strong grades from several draft pundits. MLB.com and Baseball America each ranked him the sixth-best available player eligible for selection. This signing completes the Brewers’ draft business.
While Mitchell was already a highly productive collegiate player at UCLA. And he’s said to possess a slate of skills that give him even more room to grow. Mitchell is an exceptional baserunner and defender, giving him a great starting point for launching a hopeful MLB career. If he can tap into his natural power in games, he could become an offensive force.
After Lutz hopefully this guy will be the next big (homegrown) thing for the Brewers. Wow the farm system is trash, but can’t argue with the ML product lately.
I wanted the Jay’s to select him before Martin fell into our lap
Martin is no prize.. maybe he will grow up some day
Wrong Martin! The Vandy Martin is pure class.. I apologize
I wanted rangers to take him too. We need OF help
My goodness how stupid are the Brewers? They allowed Jordan Walker to go right through their fingers. They pick Mitchell over Walker was a bonehead move

A guy ranked 6th drops into your lap at 20? Doesn’t take a degree in rocket science to see value in taking Mitchell.
For comparison sake. Walker ranked 33rd by mlb.
Time will tell of course, but Brewers were hardly stupid for drafting Mitchell, a top 10 prospect, that fell into their laps.
hey now, why bring logic into this when op clearly knowmorebaseball!
Is he the last of the 1st rounders to sign?
