With the 92nd overall pick in the 2020 MLB Draft the Brewers drafted the 21 year old Zavier Warren.
Standing at 6 foot, 190lbs the Brewers took him as a catcher. That came as a surprise to most because he played primarily SS and 3B at Central Michigan University. One thing to note about the young kid is that he is a switch hitter with line drive gap power. He doesn’t possess much HR power considering he only hit for one HR in 17 games in 2020. Although in those 17 games he hit in the heart of the batting order and posted a .328 BA. Another impressive stat for Zavier is his OBP for 2020 that came to be .469.
The Michigan Native was named to the ABCA/Rawlings All-American third team in 2019, where in that season he posted a . 363 BA and a .498 OBP. Adding onto his 2019 resume, he was ranked as one of the best players in the MAC that led to him receiving First Team All-MAC honors. In addition he also was one of the top players in almost every offensive category in the MAC.
Warren is described as versatile, athletic, as well as explosive during his time at CMU. With the addition of a very strong throwing arm and an impressive skill set on both sides of the plate, it’s easy to see why the Brewers were attracted to Zavier Warren.
