BULLOCK, JUSTIN

Position: Pitcher

DOB: May 12, 1999

Height: 6’2″ / Weight: 195

Bats: Right / Throws: Right

40-man roster: No

How acquired: Drafted (16th round, 2017)

Profile:  Selected out of high school by Milwaukee in the 16th round of the 2017 Draft, the Brewers were able to lure Bullock away from an offer to North Carolina State, signing him for $295,000.  From there, they sent him to Maryvale to begin his pro career in the Arizona League, where he worked in six games in 2017.  Pitching with poise that is rare for a high school draftee, Bullock uses a low-90’s fastball, combined with a better than average changeup and a developing curveball to keep hitters off-balance and did a good job of throwing strikes in his pro debut.

2017:  The Brewers gave Bullock a sizeable bonus in order to get him signed and then sent him to Arizona to make his professional debut with Maryvale in the AZL.  He appeared in six games, starting one, and went 1-0 with a 3.09 earned run average, striking out 11 while walking just three in 11.2 innings of work.
