Salas a perfect way to end Draft's Day 2

Salas a perfect way to end Draft's Day 2

With their final pick of the second day of the MLB First-Year Player Draft, the Brewers selected Javi Salas, a pitcher who already has a perfect game to his name.

Salas, a senior right-hander at Miami, threw a perfect game in March against Villanova, the 23rd in Division I baseball history.

"He's a sinker-slider guy," said MLB.com Draft analyst Jim Callis. "When he's good, he's very, very good. Doesn't miss a ton of bats, but a guy who's performed in college. You'll see what you have when you move him up the ladder."

The 6-foot-4 Coral Gables, Fla., native had a 2.92 ERA in 14 appearances, including eight starts, this season. He struck out 43 and walked 15 over 52 1/3 innings.

At No. 296, Salas was the third pitcher and fourth overall player selected from Miami. He was the Hurricanes' team captain for the past two years.

He was drafted by the Twins in the 38th round of the 2013 Draft before opting to finish college.

Through two days of the Draft, Milwaukee has selected six college players and five high school players. Five of their 11 picks have been pitchers, with four of those being right-handers.

The Draft concludes on Saturday, with exclusive coverage of Rounds 11-40 beginning on MLB.com at noon CT.
