That makes 21 out of 54 signed. I found it interesting that of the 54 players we drafted, 6 are Canadians including our 1st rounder. Maybe, it comes as no surprise since Mr. Melvin was born somewhere in Ontario I think.

I was wondering if anyone knows what the Brewers scouting strtaegy is…Do they have more scouts in Canada in the hopes of finding some overlooked players? I assume that the majority of Major League teams prefer to look in the Dominican Republic or at the University level.

Or maybe, scouting is so organized these days that finding a player that has slipped under the radar is very rare.

The Brewers are well known for being having the best and most thorough scouting team in Canada. Teams don’t scout Canada all that hard, as players cannot play all year around like they can in the south. It’s just personal preference for the Brewers, and I’m sure the fact that Melvin is Canadian doesn’t hurt anything.
