Round 2, pick 54 RHP Devin Williams (6-3, 165), Hazelwood West (Mo.) H.S.: Long, athletic pitcher with tremendous upside and a projectable frame. Williams was ranked as the 20th overall prospect in the draft by ESPN.com, and many feel the Brewers got a first-round talent with Williams falling to them. His fastball sits in the 88-92 mph range, but has increased in the past year. He throws a slider, change-up and curveball as off-speed pitches. The Brewers will have to be patient with Williams, but his potential is high. Competitive Balance Round B, pick 72 SS Tucker Neuhaus (6-3, 200), Wharton (Fla.) H.S.: The Brewers feel they found a gem in Neuhaus because of how early they first scouted him. Because of a couple of injuries, Neuhaus missed the majority of his senior high school season, causing a lot of teams to miss out on seeing him play. A left-handed bat with power potential, Neuhaus may have to slide over to third base, but hell start his professional career at shortstop. His defensive tools are solid, but the range is the concern. He's faced a lot of adversity in the past year, as his older brother passed away in a car accident last November. Neuhaus was coached in high school by Hall of Fame third baseman Wade Boggs. Round 3, pick 90 RHP Barrett Astin (6-1, 200), University of Arkansas: After spending his first two seasons in the bullpen for Arkansas, Astin moved to the rotation last year and went 4-4 with a 1.79 ERA in 90 23 innings. A strike-thrower, Astin walked just 20 this season and allowed only one home run. Ranked 125th by Baseball America, Astin is projected by some scouts as a future reliever. Astin has a good curveball, but Baseball America says his slider and sinker may play better in the bullpen. As a sophomore in 2012, Astin went 3-5 with a team-high 11 saves in 32 games as the closer for the Razorbacks, playing a big role in their run to the College World Series.
