Brewers Top 30 Prospects from MLB.com

MLB.com has released their top 30 prospects for every team in the league. The Brewers ranked in top five this season. David Stearns has put this team in a great position with rebuilding the Brewers farm system. Along with guys like Orlando Arcia, Johnathan Villar, Zach Davies, Domingo Santana, and Keon Broxton already in the majors. This team is young and has the pieces in place to contend soon. The goal of the franchise was to obtain as many CF and SS as possible, they are usually the most athletic on the field and often most flexible at playing other positions. Lewis Brinson is a potential five tool player that is going to make a huge impact on this Brewers squad for years to come. Corey Ray is another guy that has the tools to make a significant impact, but I actually think Ray might be one of those guys that are traded down the road for an impact guy for a playoff run. By the All-Star break if not sooner Josh Hader will be up in the majors as a number four or five starter for this team. Most of the guys are still young AA or lower but should see AA, AAA or the majors within the next two years. My biggest questions for this list is will Nottingham, Cordell, Phillips, Brinson, and Ray start the year at AAA. If they do, it’s going to be fun to watch the games at Colorado Springs this season. It’ll be interesting to see how this list changes from this year to next year. If Braun actually does this list is going to get even better than it already is. Phil Bickford is going to be interesting to watch after his 50 game suspension. Bickford came from the Giants along with Andrew Susac, Bickford appeared to be a great piece to get in return for one relief pitcher. He was one of the Giants top prospects he has had a high K/9 around 10, and at 21 years old he has a couple years to really develop into a strong pitching option for the Brewers. Ryan Cordell came from Texas as the player to be named later, Cordell had 19 HR and 70 RBI in AA with 12 steals. He is a tall and lengthy guy who should split his time between AA and AAA. Potentially seeing some time in the majors in September and into the 2018 season. Jorge Lopez has seen his name drop over two to three years on this top prospects list, he did not fare well in AAA last season. Colorado Springs is a launching pad, and his ERA reflected that last season. He will start the year in AA and most likely just to the MLB. Once a top pitching prospect for this team, look for him to rebound this season back in AA.
