Milwaukee Brewers: 2019 MLB Mock Draft Roundup 2.0

The MLB Draft is tonight! The Milwaukee Brewers will make their first selection at No. 28 overall. Who could that pick be? The Internet has ideas.

Mock drafts are fun. It’s fun to see where the players you’ve been reading about for so long could end up and which player will end up on your favorite team. For us, that’s the Milwaukee Brewers.

Our first mock draft roundup had a variety of different selections. Let’s see how things turn out in our second and final mock draft roundup.

MLB Pipeline

Brennan Malone, RHP, IMG Academy (FL)

Malone has a ton of upside and as with most high school pitchers, projectability. He has a solid four pitch mix, including a big fastball and a nasty slider. The Milwaukee Brewers need pitchers with high upside in their system, and Malone would fit perfectly.

Malone is committed to the University of North Carolina.

Fangraphs

Michael Busch, 1B/OF, North Carolina

Busch is one of those rare first basemen with a big hit tool, and not just power. The Brewers love big hit tools and the left-handed slugger can also bring plenty of power, which should get the team excited just thinking about him in Miller Park, despite his name being Busch.

He can also play the corner outfield, which should also be enticing to the Brewers, although most of his value is tied up in his bat.

CBS Sports

Brennan Malone, RHP, IMG Academy (FL)

This is the first time we’ve had a repeat of the same player in a mock draft roundup so far. Perhaps Malone is the target should he still be on the board at 28. If Malone is still on the board, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him be the pick, but other mock drafts have him being taken off the board ahead of the Milwaukee Brewers selection.

Bleacher Report

Hunter Barco, LHP, The Bolles School (FL)

Barco is a lefty that mock drafts have had pegged for the Brewers for a while now. There’s huge upside and projectability with Barco as he’s a 6’4″ lefty that has plenty of frame left to fill out. He’s got as high of a ceiling as any prep pitcher in this class.

He has three solid-above average pitches in his arsenal that make him an exciting prospect. He has a commitment to the University of Florida he will need to be signed away from.

The Big Lead

Brett Baty, 3B, Lake Travis (TX) HS

Baty is a guy most have pegged for the middle of the first round, not the end of the first round, so it’ll be a surprise if he gets this far. But if he does fall to 28, it would not be a surprise to see the Milwaukee Brewers select him.

Baty has above average hit and power tools from the left side of the plate and has a strong arm over at third base.

My MLB Draft

Matthew Lugo, SS, Carlos Beltran Academy (P.R.)

Lugo is a shortstop that has a strong hit tool and could make sense for the Brewers. Milwaukee might be in the early part of Lugo’s range on Monday night, but if some of the higher targets are off the board, then Lugo could be the guy.

Draft Site

Kameron Misner, OF, Missouri

Misner is an outfielder that looks like a classic slugger at 6’4″, 219 pounds. But he can run, and his polished left handed swing is conducive to solid contact and big power. He has the speed to play centerfield in the bigs and the throwing arm to play in right field if needed to down the line.
