With the 32nd overall pick...

Lance LeQueAnalyst IJune 13, 2008
The Milwaukee Brewers select RHP/SS, Jake Odorizzi, from Highland HS.
Odorizzi, 6-3 and 190 pounds, throws hard, in the 93-94 mph range and some considered him the best high school pitcher in the draft. He also has a solid slider and was a good-enough athlete to be a star shortstop with speed and power.
Odorizzi also was an all-conference wide receiver who has a scholarship to Louisville.
My Take
If this guy declines his scholorship, then the Brewers just picked up a stud pitcher for the future. Hopefully they can continue to build up the farm system, and get some of these guys on the team within a few years.
