MILWAUKEE -- Former American League Fireman of the Year Ken Sanders, who pitched three seasons for the Brewers, including their inaugural 1970 campaign, will represent the club on the first day of next month's First-Year Player Draft.

Sanders and Mark Mueller of the Brewers' player development department will be part of a group of draft reps that includes three Hall of Famers, three Most Valuable Players, three World Series-winning managers and 25 All-Stars. They will get plenty of airtime on Thursday, June 6 at MLB Network's Studio 42 in Secaucus, N.J.

Day 1 of the three-day Draft includes the first two rounds, plus compensation rounds and competitive balance picks. Coverage on MLB Network will be simulcast on MLB.com beginning at 5 p.m. CT, and the Houston Astros will make the No. 1 overall pick 6 p.m. CT.

The Brewers, who forfeited their first-round selection to sign pitcher Kyle Lohse, do not expect to make their first selection -- No. 54 overall -- until just after 9:30 p.m. CT. They also have a competitive balance pick at No. 72 overall on the first night of the Draft that will be made at approximately 10 p.m. CT.

MLB.com will begin its exclusive live programming of the Draft's final two days with a live draft show from its New York studios at 11:30 a.m. CT on June 7, followed by a live pick-by-pick stream and draft and scouting expert commentary from experts Jonathan Mayo and Jim Callis. MLB.com will provide DraftCaster, a live interactive application that includes a searchable database of every draft-eligible player supplemented by statistics, scouting reports and video highlights.
