MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Brewers selected outfielder Trent Clark out of Richland (TX) High School with their first pick (15th overall) of the First-Year Player Draft.

Vice President of Amateur Scouting/Special Assistant to the General Manager Ray Montgomery made the announcement.

“We are excited to have Trent in the organization,” said Montgomery. “He has proven to be a team leader and is one of the better bats in the draft. He is a potential five-tool player and we are excited to get that type of player with the 15th selection.”

Clark, 18, batted .552 with 3 HR, 24 RBI and 11 stolen bases during his senior season. He bats left-handed and plays center field. He was scouted by national crosschecker Steve Riha.

The Brewers have two more draft picks Monday night, June 8th coming in Competitive Balance Round A (#40 overall) and in the second round (#55).

The Draft will resume Tuesday at noon with rounds 3-10.
