Brewers sign seven more Draft picks

NEW YORK -- The Brewers' front office has been busy.

The club announced Thursday the signings of seven more players from last week's First-Year Player Draft, bringing the two-day total to 17.

Among those inking their first professional deals were three picks from the top 10 rounds: Indiana University third baseman Dustin DeMuth, prep right-hander David Burkhalter and Kansas State outfielder Mitch Meyer.

DeMuth led his team with a .374 average while slugging .531 as a senior this season before going in the fifth round. Meyer, Milwaukee's seventh-round selection, batted .264 with a .351 on-base percentage as a redshirt junior.

Collegiate righties Brandon Woodruff (11th round) and Caleb Smith (15th round) were also among the new signees. Right-hander Taylor Stark (30th round) and southpaw Chad Reeves (33rd round) rounded out Thursday's list.
