A jack-of-all-trades defensively, he can play just about anywhere on the diamond and play it well, thanks in large part to his athletic abilities. Primarily as a second baseman, Mittelstaedt boasts a very solid 3. However, one of the most neglected facets to his game has been his speed. By no means does Gennett have elite-level speed on the bases, he is a very productive base-runner.
Once that develops, though, his defense could be a real strong-point to his game. Kentrail Davis has always been known for his superb speed; from his college days at the University of Tennessee up until his promotion to double-A ball this season, he has consistently strutted his quickness on the bases and in the field of play.
Last season in high-A ball, Davis swiped 33 bases on 41 attempts and moreover compiled eight triples out of the leadoff role in Brevard County. In 61 games in center field, the former Volunteer garnered an eye-opening 2.
Drafted in the third round of the draft, Josh Prince has always been known for having deadly speed on the bases. Scouts took notice to his tremendous agility during his junior season at Tulane University, where he swiped 44 bases in just 59 games for the Green Wave. His quickness has garnered attention thus far in his professional career, as well.
In his rookie campaign, Prince stole a combined 38 bases in 50 attempts between rookie and low-A ball and followed that up with a 44 stolen-base season in with high-A Brevard County. Last season, he totaled 24 stolen bases in 32 attempts.
Not only that, but his athleticism has translated nicely to the field of play. In games at shortstop, Prince boasts a 4. Since Haydel is far from a power-hitter, his game is almost solely predicated off his elite quickness on the bases. Garnering a career 1. He moreover scored 60 times and notched seven triples, proving to be one of the most productive top-of-the-order bats among all Midwest League players.
In center field last season, the Danville, Virginia native posted a 2. An unmitigated barn-burner dating all the way back to his college days, Farris has employed his speed both on the bases and at second base and has proven to be an extremely valuable prospect.
As a 21 year old in his first professional season in , Farris notched 21 stolen bases and two triples. His sensational career 4. Which top Brewers prospects have the best shot at becoming an impact player at the big league level? First and foremost, Farris is an unmitigated thief on the basepaths.
In , the former fourth-round pick stole 70 bases in just games in high-A ball. The problem is, his bat, particularly the power portion, has been non-existent. In plate appearances in triple-A last season, Farris amassed just a. That facet of his game has been the most pressing issue in his development as a prospect. Now 26 years old, Farris has limited time to shore up that portion of his game. A late bloomer, Davis tapped into his slugging capabilities in low-A ball in , mashing 22 home runs and 72 RBI on his way to a very solid.
He followed that up with an 84 RBI campaign last season between high-A and double-A ball, quickly grabbing attention from scouts through his slugging ways. This season, Davis is absolutely destroying the ball, so far garnering a career-best.
Widely considered a steal at 47th overall at the draft, Kyle Heckathorn has hardly performed up to his billing as one of the top collegiate arms of the class thus far in his pro career. His lanky framework allows him to work on a downward plane and have good command, which is one of the foremost strengths to his game.
Unfortunately, his biggest strength is also his biggest weakness. He tends to leave the ball over the plate at a far too concerning rate and hitters have as a consequence lit him up on a consistent basis since he lacks the velocity necessary to blow by hitters.
Improvements to his game have been palpable this season, particularly in lowering his walk rate 4. Heckathorn is still a bit of a project, however, he could definitely grow into an impact back of the rotation starter at the next level. Drafted in the ninth round of the draft as an extremely raw 18 year old, Rivera has always been known for his near elite defensive range at shortstop.
In just over two full professional seasons, Rivera boasts a 4. Hardy and Alcides Escobar. Rivera has averaged a. In total innings, he punched out batters and walked just 36 for a solid 3. His performance warranted a promotion, where he made a couple relief appearances for the Brewers in September. His very good fastball-changeup combo portends he could thrive out of a relief role in a major league bullpen.
He leads all Brewers prospects with a 0. Gagnon was a very productive starter on the collegiate scene thanks to a solid three-pitch repertoire — a mid to lows fastball, curve and changeup — allowing roughly seven hits per nine innings pitched during his junior season at Long Beach State. A fifth-round draft pick in , Caleb Gindl wasted no time adapting to pitching in the minor league level. His power witnessed a decline from his first two seasons, though, posting a. Not only that, but he can also hold down the fort at first base with great efficiency.
Morris holds true to a career. Ever since his scintillating rookie campaign in the low minors, the Brewers have had Logan Schafer on their radar. Still, the year-old Cal Poly product has proven he can do it all: Hit for minimal power and a high average, play unparalleled defense in center field, flash a strong arm when needed and be a threat on the bases when needed.
Nevertheless, teams are always on the lookout for outfielders with exceptional range. He could turn out to be an impact player in that regard. The first and most obvious reason can be attributed to his exceptional hitting efficiency.
On top of his surprisingly impressive hitting capacity, Gennett is moreover a respectable base-stealer. The year-old has nabbed 30 stolen bases through roughly two and a half professional seasons for a career 5. Gennett still maintains a fair amount of skeptics who believe his stature will ultimately become his downfall against tougher competition.
Based on the way he continues to produce, though, it looks like he has a real shot to be an impact player at the next level. Just what makes Thornburg so effective? Despite his lack of size, Thornburg has tremendous velocity, able to run his four-seam fastball up to 95 MPH on a consistent basis and has a devastating changeup and solid curveball to go along with it. Those three pitches have bestowed him with a tremendous strikeout capacity, striking out exactly 11 batters per nine innings pitched thus far in his career.
Consequently, Nelson is finally developing to the polished starter the Brewers saw when they took him in the second round of the draft. Add in the fact that Nelson has three very solid pitches — mid 90s fastball with good sinking action, much improved changeup and a plus-average slider with exceptional movement — and Nelson has the makings of an impact middle to back of the rotation starter at the big league level. And for the that reason alone, many scouts see him growing into an impact player at the big league level.
Of course, there are plenty of other reasons why the statuesque right-hander projects to be an effective starter at the next level. The Brewers are hoping he can fly through the system to be their No. After signing on as a free agent out of the Dominican Republic at just 16 years of age, Wily Peralta has swiftly developed into a one of the most MLB-ready pitchers in all of minor league baseball.
His size, durability, solid three-pitch repertoire and impressive strikeout capacity are all things to like about his game. His frame has granted him the durability needed to go deep into a majority of his starts, averaging 5.
While his above-average stamina is one of his foremost strengths, his strikeout abilities are probably the most impressive facet to his game. The Georgie Tech product has three projectable pitches to his repertoire and prototypical frame, was highly successful during his junior season with the Yellow Jackets and is moreover a very personable guy with tremendous baseball IQ.
His prototypical frame allows him to hide the ball well and also go deep into ballgames, additionally. Bradley easily takes the cake over other Brewers prospects with respect to MLB potential. However, a successful first-year player draft has officially put the Brewers back on the map in terms of markedly young talent in the minors. However, there are a number of prospects who may have their sights set on the majors.
Gindl, though, might be an exception to that fact. Not terribly impressive, but it was enough for Milwaukee to add him to their man roster. Last season in triple-A, he maintained a. Schafer, 25, was at one point a very promising young star but a heated battle with injuries has derailed his development. Last year between high-A, double-A and triple-A ball, Schafer batted.

He skipped rookie ball and went straight to low-A ball where he batted. He also notched 14 stolen bases. Last year at Brevard County, he batted an even. His ceiling is limited, though, with Rickie Weeks holding down the fort at second-base. I do expect him to push for a starting role by , nevertheless.
