MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers have signed their top five draft picks from the first-year player draft, the team announced Monday.
Second-round pick right-hander Devin Williams, competitive balance round B pick shortstop Tucker Neuhaus, third-round pick right-hander Barrett Astin, fourth-round pick right-hander Taylor Williams and fifth-round pick right-hander Josh Uhen have all signed and been assigned to minor league affiliates.
Devin Williams' advisor told FOXSportsMidwest.com that the 18-year-old from Hazelwood West High School (Mo.) signed for $1.35 million instead of heading to the University of Missouri. He will report to Milwaukee's rookie team in Arizona.
Neuhaus and Uhen will join Williams in Arizona, while Astin and Taylor Williams will head to Milwaukee's rookie affiliate in Helena. Arizona and Helena begin their seasons Thursday.
The Brewers are expected to announce the signings of additional players later this week.
