The Milwaukee Brewers have signed USC Recruit Jacob Gatewood to a MLB contract with a $1.83 million bonus. The Brewers have picked Gatewood with the 41st overall pick and were intent on being aggressive to lure him away from playing at Southern California.
Gateway excited about playing professionally commented,
“It’s definitely a relief to know where I’m going to go and a relief to know I’m going to such a good organization. I’m just enjoying it right now. We’ll see what happens down the road, but I’m looking forward to playing in the Brewers organization.”
