MILWAUKEE -- Signability might be a term third baseman Trent Boras heard a lot growing up.
The USC commit, the son of agent Scott Boras, was selected by the Brewers in the 30th round of Tuesday's MLB Draft. Scott Boras represents several high-profile MLB players, including Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder, who is expected to explore free agency this offseason.
Brewers amateur scouting director Bruce Seid said he anticipates Trent will attend USC, but Seid didn't hold back when asked about the third baseman's ability. The prep prospect didn't attend Milwaukee's pre-Draft workout, but the two sides are very familiar with one another.
"He's played on our area code team, which is a high-profile team in California," Seid said. "He played third base for us, he played on our Fall team and Trent is a good player. Trent's going to USC to play baseball right now, and you know he's a left-handed hitter who makes contact, he's pretty good with the glove at third base. Just like any high school kid, he's got to develop. Trent will be playing professional baseball -- if not this year, definitely in years to come."
Boras' other son and USC infielder, Shane, was also in the Draft but has not yet been selected. Shane is a red-shirt sophomore who was drafted in the 35th round by the Cardinals in 2008 before opting to attend college.
"It's a good relationship we have with not only Scott and his organization, but being in Southern California, he's a big part of the Southern California baseball scene," Seid said. "He's out watching ball games and he's an easy guy to get to know to."
