 Biographical Information
Brett Austin was a first-round pick in 2011.
Austin hit .537 with 12 home runs as a high school senior. He had a commitment to North Carolina State University when the San Diego Padres chose him 54th in the 2011 amateur draft. The pick was compensation for the loss of Yorvit Torrealba to free agency. It was the third of four San Diego first-round selections that year, following Joe Ross and Michael Kelly and preceding Jace Peterson. Austin did not wind up signing.
