2012 MLB Draft: Milwaukee Brewers Select Catcher Clint Coulter

Clint Coulter, C, Union HS, Camas, WA: This former high-school wrestler has a strong 6-3, 210 build. He is a fairly polished hitter with power and plate discipline from the right side, and has the tools to be a strong defender with more experience. He isn’t quite as athletic as Wyatt Mathisen, a Texas high-school catcher who was Coulter’s main competitor among the prep backstop ranks, but the general consensus is that he has a decent chance to stay behind the plate if a) he doesn’t get too big, and b) he puts in the work, which he will. He has a confident personality, along with a reputation as a hard worker and team leader. Coulter is committed to Arizona State but is signable for first-round money. The Brewers went heavy for pitching in the draft last year, so adding a powerful backstop provides some positional balance for the organization.
