Brewers ready board for June Draft


MILWAUKEE -- Brewers amateur scouting director Bruce Seid gathered his staff at Miller Park beginning Monday for the first of three days of regional scouting meetings, the final step in preparing for next week's First-Year Player Draft.

When those meetings adjourn Wednesday, Seid will remain in Milwaukee to finalize the team's Draft board. The Brewers forfeited their first-round pick to sign Kyle Lohse, so they will not select until No. 54 overall.

They also own pick Nos. 72 and 90 in the top 100.

"The most important thing has been trying to identify who won't be in front of us so we don't waste a whole lot of time talking about those guys," Seid said. "We wanted to zero in on guys we feel will be in the top three picks of ours. In reality, at 54, 72 and 90, there's big leaguers in there."

The Draft will take place Thursday, June 6, through Saturday, June 8, beginning with the Draft preview show on MLB.com and MLB Network on June 6 at 5 p.m. CT. Live Draft coverage from MLB Network's Studio 42 begins at 6 p.m. CT, with the top 73 picks being streamed on MLB.com and broadcast on MLB Network.

The Draft will then resume Friday beginning with selection No. 74.
