Fall instructionals underway

Each of the Brewers’ first six picks in the most recent First-Year Player Draft are taking part in the fall instructional league in Arizona, and 2008 first-round pick will join the fray once he’s finished playing for Team Canada in the baseball World Cup.

Games against other teams’ instructional league squads began on Saturday, and through Tuesday the baby Brewers were off to a 2-0-1 start. They beat a group of Cubs farmhands, 10-2, on Tuesday, when first-round supplemental pick Kyle Hechathorn allowed two runs in four innings.
