Barrett Astin signs with Brewers


FAYETTEVILLE ( — Arkansas pitcher Barrett Astin signed with the Milwaukee Brewers Monday.

The Brewers drafted Astin with the 90th overall pick (third round) of the 2013 MLB draft and agreed to a deal with him Monday. Astin was the third Arkansas pitcher selected in the draft.

"I'm happy to be a Brewer," Astin said. "It was a cool process to be able to go through the draft and stuff. I enjoyed the last few years at the University of Arkansas and I learned a lot and matured a lot. We got a deal done with the Brewers and I'm leaving Thursday to get up there and get to what's next.
