Brewers Supplemental Pick Close to Signing

According to a local newspaper in Illinois, Brewers supplemental draft pick Jake Odorizzi, a pitcher from Highland High School in Illinois, is close to signing a contract with the Brewers.

Odorizzi has a scholarship to go to Louisville.

Odorizzi's team also won the state title this year in baseball. According to the St. Louis Post Dispatch:

The 6-foot-2, 175-pound righthander was 14-0 and ended his career with a 25-game winning streak. He had a 0.08 earned-run average, allowing just one earned run, and three runs all season, in 89 2/3 innings. Odorizzi gave up just 33 hits and six walks with 146 strikeouts while throwing fastballs that touched 97 mph.

No Robert Wooten or Blakeny Billings in the fold yet. Wooten has an excuse since Carolina is still in the CWS.
