SEC Player of the Year Hunter Morris was selected by the Milwaukee Brewers in the fourth round of the Major League draft Tuesday with the 129th overall pick.
The first baseman hit .386 with 23 home runs and 76 RBIs this year. He had 46 home runs in his three-year college career, fifth most in Auburn history.
It's the second time Morris has been drafted. He was taken out of Grissom High in Huntsville, Ala., in 2007 by the Boston Red Sox with the 84th overall pick but did not sign.
Morris was the second Auburn player taken Tuesday. Center fielder Trent Mummey went 11 picks earlier to the Baltimore Orioles.
