Jsonline is reporting that Jake Odorizzi, a supplemental draft pick by Milwaukee, signed today in the neighborhood of $1.1MM! Great news for the Brewers, considering that he has a scholarship to play football at Louisville in fall. This kid absolutely raked in high school (IL) where he his ERA was .08, meaning this:
-He gave up only run in 89 and 2/3's innings!
-Went 14-0 on the season
-Led his team to the state title
*This leaves Milwaukee with only two un-signed draft picks from their top 10 picks. The next player expected to sign is First Round pick Brett Lawrie from Candada. He is another high school player who will play with Team Canada in the JR Level Tourney this summer. This isn't a big deal according to Melvin, picked up by JS. Hopefully they sign him quickly!
