The Brewers used their first pick (16th overall) on catcher Brett Lawrie from Brookswood Secondary School in Langley, British Columbia. This past spring, Lawrie played on Team Canada's Junior National Team and hit .486 (17 for 35) with 8 HR and 24 RBI while playing against MLB Dominican Summer League teams.
Lawrie became the highest drafted Canadian positional player in the history of the MLB June First-Year Player Draft and is just the sixth Canadian ever selected in the first round.
Among the teams choices, the Brewers used the 54th pick overall on center fielder Cutter Dykstra out of Westlake (CA) High School. He is the son of former Major Leaguer Lenny Dykstra.
