Brewers go for high schoolers in Round 2

Two more blurbs about the Brewers’ back-to-back picks in the second round, Nos. 73 and 74 overall:

Round 2, Max Walla, OF, Albuquerque Academy (N.M.):   Described in his scouting report as offense-first, defense second, Walla should fit right into an organization that has found homes for similarly-described players over the past 5-7 years. He’s a 5-foot-11 left-handed hitter and thrower described as a “Brian Giles type” who probably fits in an outfield corner.

Round 2, Cameron Garfield, C, Murrieta Valley HS (Calif.): After selecting collegiate players with their first three picks, the Brewers go with a pair of high schoolers in consecutive selections in the second round. He has decent offensive skills and a plus throwing arm, but was limited to designated hitter duties for much of his senior season because of an ankle injury.
