EGNATUK, NICK

Position: Third Base

DOB: December 21, 1998

Height: 6’2″ / Weight: 185

Bats: Right / Throws: Right

40-man roster: No

How acquired: Drafted (5th Round, 2017)

Profile: Drafted by the Brewers out of high school in the fifth round in 2017, Egnatuk signed for a bonus of $500,000 passing up an offer to play college ball at Pittsburgh.  He was sent to Maryvale after his signing, and made his professional debut with the AZL Brewers, appearing in 33 games.  A good athlete who played shortstop in high school, Egnatuk has a strong arm and is better suited for the hot corner.  He has a patient approach at the plate and uses all fields with plus bat speed and should develop good power as he continues to grow.

2017:  Assigned to the Brewers’ affiliate in the rookie Arizona League after signing, Egnatuk wound up playing in 33 games during his first taste of pro ball and finished the year batting .224/.362/.267 with five doubles and 17 runs scored.
