Drafted in the 4th round (148th overall) by the San Francisco Giants in 2012 (signed for $270,000)
The Brewers drafted Okert after each of his two seasons at Grayson County (Texas) CC, in the 43rd round in 2010 and in the 33rd round in 2011. If they want him this June, they're going to have to pull the trigger much earlier. Okert has blossomed after transferring to Oklahoma and moving to the bullpen a month into this season. A fastball that sat at 88-91 mph a year ago now resides at 90-93, consistently touches 95 and peaks at 97. He has added velocity to his slider, and it's death on lefthanded hitters. Some scouts think it's still worth giving Okert a chance to start in pro ball, though he may lack the changeup and command to make that work. They love his effortless delivery and note that he has firmed up his 6-foot-2, 219-pound frame.
