Crew nabs hard-thrower Heckathorn at No. 47
Another blurb, this one on a familiar name who went to the Brewers with their second first-round sandwich pick:
Supplemental Rd. 1, Kyle Heckathorn, RHP, Kennesaw State (Ga.): No surprise to see the Brewers jump on the 6-foot-6, 240 pounder, who, like Arnett, is a hard-thrower coming off his junior season in college. Club officials were not shy in the weeks leading up to the Draft in saying they were high on Heckathorn, who can reach 99 mph with his fastball but sits more comfortably in the 94-97 mph range, and also features a hard slider. He was 4-1 with a 3.44 ERA and 98 strikeouts in 86 1/3 innings for the Kennesaw State this season, including a 15-strikeout game. Like Davis, he turns 21 later this month. Some mock Drafts had Heckathorn going to the Brewers in the first round.
