Brewers draft six players in first three rounds; Arnett is top choice
The Milwaukee Brewers took Indiana University right-hander Eric Arnett as their first pick Tuesday in the Major League Draft.
He was the 26th overall selection. And it was the first time the Brewers chose a college pitcher as their top draft choice since Ben Sheets in 1999.
It's no secret the Brewers need pitching in their farm system, but scouting director Bruce Seid said he continued the team's tradition of taking the best player available.
