Quinton Low is the Brewers’ version of Shohei! Okay, okay, no one will ever be Shohei. But Quinton is a really interesting two way guy even if he doesn’t stick with both. That alone is something that makes him a really intriguing prospect for the Brew Crew.
Quinton Low was drafted in the 13th round in the 2021 Amateur Draft out of Chatfield High School in Littleton, Colorado. He’s 6’4” and 215 lbs and is 20 years old (DOB: 9/5/2002). He bats left and throws right and First Base and pitches here and there as well.
Low played 9 games in 2021 for ACL Brewers Blue, accumulating a .364 batting average among 26 plate appearances with a .364 on base percentage as well. However, in 2022 Quinton played 43 games and had a .254 average with two home runs, 16 runs batted in, one triple, seven doubles, and even had an exceptional .370 on base percentage. He did however strike out 35 times among 114 at bats, which is pretty high unfortunately for a kid in the lower ranks.
In ‘22, Low played 229 innings at First Base, amassing 202 put outs through 213 chances. He had four errors (.981 fielding percentage) but did help contribute to 23 double plays. I could not find any video, so I am unsure if his four errors came because of bad scoops that he should have had or if they were throwing errors.
While playing for Brewers Blue in 2022, Low pitched 11 innings, allowing only one run (on a home run), five walks, and had 16 strike outs. In a very limited amount of innings, Low impressed, and I would be surprised if the Brewers did not allow him to continue on the mound.
So, Where Does He Rank?

Quinton Low is a super unique prospect. With him being such a low pick, that gave the Brewers the opportunity to allow him to both hit and pitch, and it could work out for them. While he has a very small amount of data to go off of, his pitching looks really solid and he also has a frame that he could mold into a solid first base or corner outfield spot. Only the future will tell what comes of Low, but I think he is definitely someone that we should keep an eye on as Brewers fans and see where his potential can take him.
