Brewers ink draft pick out of UWM
Milwaukee Brewers' director of amateur scouting Bruce Seid met with the media on Wednesday afternoon at the conclusion of the Major League Baseball First Year Player Draft, and expressed optimism about bringing all 42 picks into the fold.
"I can just say we're real close with a lot of the top guys," Seid said.
While much attention will be put on when first round picks Clint Coulter, Victor Roache and Mitch Haniger sign, the Brewers have wasted no time with their later picks, including 12th round pick Eric Semmelhack out of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
The junior right-hander signed this evening and will report to the Helena Brewers of the Rookie League on Monday.
"It made it a little more real for me," Semmelhack said of the signing. "This is a job now and this is something I need to try and strive at, which I always planned on."
Semmelhack, an Oak Creek native, finished the 2012 campaign with a 3.77 earned run average and five victories while leading the Horizon League in strikeouts.
In three full years at UWM Semmelhack won eight games with a 3.94 ERA and 153 strikeouts in 194.0 innings.
