Garrett Cooper had a great season on the Plains, leading the Tigers' offense and playing solid defense.

The Milwaukee Brewers selected Auburn first baseman Garrett Cooper in the sixth round of the MLB First-Year Player Draft on Friday. Cooper was the first Auburn player to go off the board.

He ranked seventh in the SEC in batting average, fifth in slugging and led the conference in on-base percentage. Cooper tied with two other players, including Auburn third baseman Damek Tomscha, for seventh in homers.

In the field, he committed eight errors and compiled a .985 fielding percentage. His 498 putouts ranked second in the conference.
