I have learned, and it was corroborated, that 2012 5th Round draft choice Damien Magnifico has agreed to a professional contract pending results of a physical examination.
Magnifico is a flame-throwing pitcher who, scouts say, throws an easy 100 MPH fastball. He needs to develop a secondary pitch to find success at the big league level as a reliever, but that’s something people feel he is certainly capable of.
Congrats to Magnifico and a warm, if pending, welcome to the Brewers organization!
Jim Callis from Baseball America has learned that Magnifico agreed to a contract value of $285,000 which is higher than the slotted pick value of $209,900.
