Dodgers sign 6th round pick Brock Stewart

Illinois State

Terms have not been disclosed, but slot value for pick No. 189 is $222,200.

The Dodgers have signed Illinois State right-handed pitcher Brock Stewart, their sixth round selection in the 2014 MLB Draft, per WMBD/WYZZ TV in Normal, Illinois. Stewart signed on Monday night, though terms have not been revealed.

Allotted slot value for pick No. 189 overall is $222,200, though as a college senior it seems likely the right-hander would have signed for less than slot.

"I never thought I'd be drafted as a pitcher, since I haven't pitched a lot since high school,"' Stewart told the television station. "I'll be a pitcher and I'm looking forward to it. I've always known my arm is my best tool. Let's go out there and see if I can use it to my advantage. And see how far it takes me."

Stewart was 3-2 with a 2.36 ERA in 11 games as a senior for Illinois State in 2014, with 30 strikeouts and eight walks in 26⅔ innings. He also hit .238/.317/.396 as a third baseman. His father Jeff is a Padres scout.

Stewart, 22, will report to the Dodgers training facility at Camelback Ranch in Arizona. He tweeted Wednesday morning that he was on his way.
