Brice Turang selected by the Brewers in first round

Brice Turang heard his name called by the Milwaukee Brewers with the 21st overall pick in the 2018 MLB Draft.

The signing bonus for the draft pick is worth $3,013,600. Turang is a LSU commit.

Professional scouts considered Turang, a prep shortstop from California, as the top prospect in this year’s draft class last June. The high expectations and mediocre results last summer caused his draft stock to take a slight hit this spring.

A left-handed hitter, Turang is capable of hitting line drives to all parts of the field and will be a top-of-the-order bat. Although he possesses average power, scouts expect him to hit around 15 homers in the major leagues.

Expected to stick at shortstop long-term, Turang has above-average speed and arm strength.
