Scouts recall Brewer stepping out of a batting cage at last summer's East Coast Showcase to answer cell phone calls from college football recruiters. He was obviously distracted, as the swing and approach scouts previously saw was nonexistent. Brewer committed to Florida State to play wide receiver as well as baseball, but he rediscovered his stroke this spring and could find his way in the top five rounds. His pitch recognition and plate discipline have improved, but he has a pull approach and swings and misses frequently. When he squares balls on his barrel, he shows above-average power. Combine that with 4.2-second home to first times, and it's easy to understand why clubs are reluctant to write him off. Comparisons range from Brian Jordan to Reggie Sanders, though his choppy swing looks more similar to Greg Golson's presently. Brewer's hands are solid and he has enough arm for shortstop, but he's best-suited forcenter field.
