The Milwaukee Brewers 2022 MLB Draft class will add potentially 21 new players to the organization. Who are these players and what will they sign for? We have all the information here for you in this handy tracker. This article will be updated regularly as information comes in on signing bonuses and selections.

This year, the Brewers have a bonus pool allotment of $7,070,900 for the top 10 rounds. Any money over $125k in a bonus for a pick in the 11th round or later also counts against the pool. It’s in the bottom third of bonus pool allotments this year on account of the Crew picking later in the rounds and their Competitive Balance pick being in the later round B this year.

Here is the Milwaukee Brewers 2022 MLB Draft selections and signing bonus tracker.

Round 1 (27): Eric Brown, SS, Coastal Carolina

A proven college performer with contact skills and low strikeout rates, Brown is the Crew’s first round pick. He has a wonky setup pre-swing that reminds many of Craig Counsell and has some scouts concerned. But the Brewers believe in the hit tool. He’ll get sent out as a shortstop and could stick at the position or move to 2nd base.

Signing Bonus: $2,050,000 ($651,900 under slot)

Round 2 (63): Jacob Misiorowski, RHP, Crowder (MO) JC

A Junior College pick from the same school as Aaron Ashby, Misiorowski has big upside. He’s 6-foot-7 and throws 100 MPH with his fastball. He also has a wipeout slider. He’ll need to develop a third pitch at least and some more command to stick as a starter, but the foundation and upside potential is tremendous.

The Brewers view him as one of the best pure arms in this class. It’ll be a project for the pitching lab, but a fun one.

Signing Bonus: $2,350,000 ($1,218,500 over slot)

Round CB-B (72): Robert Moore, SS, Arkansas

Thought of by many to be a potential first round pick heading into the year, Robert Moore fell down boards after struggling at the plate for the Razorbacks this spring. He’s a gamer and has a high baseball IQ. His contact skills are still good and he’s likely to be a second baseman if he’s going to play everyday.

Signing Bonus: $800,000 ($115,300 under slot)

Round 3 (102): Dylan O’Rae, SS, Northern Collegiate Institute (ON)

Canada’s prep Player of the Year is Dylan O’Rae, an undersized shortstop with speed to burn and excellent contact skills. There’s a lot of upside in the bat and O’Rae can play all over the diamond. He’s a great athlete with a natural feel to hit and the Brewers love those traits.

O’Rae is the earliest high school player selected for Milwaukee since the trio of Turang/Gray/Bello in 2018. He’s stated that he plans to sign.

Signing Bonus: $597,500 ($3,200 under slot)

Round 4 (132): Matt Wood, C, Penn State

The Big Ten’s batting champion this year was Matt Wood, with his .379 average and 1.147 OPS. He’s a left-handed hitter and has the defensive skills to stick behind the plate. His on-base ability and home run ability provides a tantalizing mix for the Brewers in a system that already has a number of good catchers.

Signing Bonus: $347,500 ($100,900 under slot)

Round 5 (162): Will Rudy, RHP, Cal Poly Pomona

Rudy put up some good numbers this year in the rotation for Cal Poly Pomona. He struck out batters at a high rate and didn’t walk many. He’ll need to add some velocity and polish his stuff, but the command is already there and the ingredients are a good foundation for the pitching lab.

Signing Bonus: $150,000 ($184,500 under slot)

Round 6 (192): Tyler Woessner, RHP, Central Arizona College

Woessner went from the bullpen to the rotation this year and performed well, showcasing a solid four pitch mix and swing and miss stuff. He’s a bit on the old side for a JUCO prospect.

Signing Bonus: $100,000 ($159,700 under slot)

Round 7 (222): Ben Metzinger, 3B, Louisville

A fourth year senior for Louisville, Metzinger was finally fully healthy in 2022 and he broke out with 19 homers and a huge season. The contact skills are high and there’s good power to go with. Metzinger is also a solid defender at the hot corner.

Signing Bonus: $97,500 ($107,000 under slot)

Round 8 (252): Nate Peterson, LHP, Illinois-Chicago

Peterson is a pitchability lefty with analytical traits on his pitches the Brewers should be able to develop and use. He’ll need to add more velo and could be a back end starter.

Signing Bonus: $167,500 ($3,600 under slot)

Round 9 (282): Tayden Hall, C, State College of Florida – Manatee-Sarasota

Hall has great contact skills, doesn’t chase, and draws plenty of walks. He can play all over the field but might have a future behind the plate where his bat will play up. He’d be big for a catcher at 6’4″ but he’s extremely athletic and could handle it.

Signing Bonus: $157,500 (Exactly Slot Value)

Round 10 (312): Brian Fitzpatrick, LHP, Rutgers

Another big lefty standing at 6’7″, Fitzpatrick started for Rutgers this year and did well. He boosted his stock even more in the Cape Cod League and has the ability to miss bats with his stuff.

Signing Bonus: $100,000 ($49,600 under slot)

Round 11 (342): Cameron Wagoner, RHP, Eastern Michigan

Wagoner has played two years at Eastern Michigan. He made 18 appearances this year, mostly out of the bullpen and had a 3.49 ERA. Has some good strikeout numbers and likely a reliever going forward. It looks like he will sign.

Signing Bonus: $125,000

Round 12 (372): Luke Adams, 3B, Hinsdale Central (IL) HS

This could be one of the guys the Brewers go with a big overpay for and were saving their money in the earlier rounds for. Luke Adams is a right handed hitter with a strong arm and could play either third base or corner outfield.  He’s a good athlete and has a lot of power potential being 6’4″ and 210 pounds. There’s likely some more muscle to add as well.

Might be a tough sign. He’s committed to Michigan State.

Signing Bonus: $282,500 (157,500 counts vs pool)

Round 13 (402): Zane Petty, RHP, Corsicana (TX) HS

The Brewers follow up Adams with another high school pick, this time a pitcher in Zane Petty. They believe they can get more velocity out of him and like the foundation he has. Another tough sign though as Petty is a Texas Tech commit.

Signing Bonus: Did not sign

Round 14 (432): Aidan Maldonado, RHP, Minnesota

This is the second time the Brewers have drafted Aidan Maldonado. They took him out of high school in 2018 and select him again in 2022. Maldonado was the Sunday starter for the Gophers this year and posted a 3.91 ERA with 90 Ks in 73.2 IP

Signing Bonus: $125,000

Round 15 (462): Satchell Norman, C, Florida SouthWestern State

The Brewers have been targeting hit tools and contact skills this year and Satchell Norman is no different. He hit .376 this year for Florida SouthWestern State and added 16 doubles and 10 home runs.

Signing Bonus: $125,000

Round 16 (492): Ethan Lege, 3B, Delgado College

Another contact skills hitter that walks more than he strikes out. Lege had a dominant season for Delgado, hitting .398/.493/.556 with 25 walks and just 11 strikeouts. He’s committed to Ole Miss, but could join the Brewers.

Signing Bonus: Did not sign

Round 17 (522): Brady Neal, C, IMG Academy (FL)

Neal was one of the top high school prospects in the country this year. He was ranked 74th overall in this class by MLB Pipeline and was a 2nd or 3rd rounder based on talent. Signability has pushed him down the board to the Brewers in the 17th round.

This will be a tough sign, but the Brewers do have some money saved and this could either be a backup plan for the 12th rounder Adams if he doesn’t sign or the primary plan and there are other backups. Neal is committed to LSU.

Signing Bonus: Did not sign

Round 18 (552): Jurrangelo Cijntje, BHP, Champagnat Catholic (FL) HS

BHP is not a typo. Cijntje is a both handed pitcher, a switch pitcher. He’s also a switch hitter and wants to be a two-way player. He can throw mid-90s from both the right and left side on the mound and is such a talented and gifted athlete. If any organization can help him get the most out of that, especially on the mound, it’s the Brewers.

Cijntje will be a tough sign and he does have a strong commitment to Mississippi State.

Signing Bonus: Did not sign

Round 19 (582): Jaden Noot, RHP, Sierra Canyon (CA) HS

Jaden Noot is another 2nd-3rd rounder based on talent. A member of the Brewers Area Code Games team last year, Noot is someone they know well. Another LSU commit, Noot has a big starter’s build and a big fastball to lead his four pitch mix. The upside is high if the Brewers can get him to put pen to paper.

Of these last three picks of Neal, Cjintje, and Noot, likely at most only one of them will sign. The Brewers will take runs at them and if they can get one, it’ll be a huge win for the organization.

Signing Bonus: Did not sign

Round 20 (612): Noah Hall, RHP, South Carolina

To finish out the draft class is Noah Hall. After two years at Appalachian State, Hall transferred to South Carolina and put up a 4.34 ERA in 15 games, including 12 starts. He’s likely a reliever at the next level but could be sent out as a starter.

Signing Bonus: Did not sign
