Good signs for Brewers and top pick

There was nothing official from the Brewers or agent Jason Wood on Thursday, but all signs pointed to the team finalizing a contract for second-round Draft pick Devin Williams by the end of the weekend.

Williams, a right-handed pitcher from a St. Louis-area high school, was Milwaukee’s top pick in the First-Year Player Draft because the team surrendered its first round selection to sign Kyle Lohse. Williams was in Milwaukee for a physical exam on Wednesday (he Tweeted a nice aerial shot of Miller Park on his way into town) and was to undergo a motion analysis study on Thursday — standard operating procedure for pitchers in the Brewers pipeline.

Look for Williams to receive a bonus above the $1,017,300 slotted by Major League Baseball for the 54th overall pick.

So, barring an unforeseen snag, a deal will get done. In the meantime, you can revisit my story about Williams and the Brewers’ other Day 1 Draft pick, Tucker Neuhaus. The Brewers have not formally announced any Draft signings, but they already have finalized a $771,000 bonus for Neuhaus, who was also in Milwaukee on Thursday, and third-round pick Barrett Astin.
