Brewer Fanatic Contributor

#1 ( - ) Garrett Mitchell, OF, age 22, AA Biloxi

644 points (24 1st place votes) - 27 of 27 ballots

The Brewers top pick in 2020 was a near unanimous #1 in this year’s poll. Mitchell crushed high A pitching, but came down to earth at AA. Still, he has impressed with a blend of speed, power, discipline and average.

 

#2 (+1) Ethan Small, LHSP, age 24, AAA Nashville

578 points (1 1st place votes) - 27 of 27 ballots

Was on the fast track to Milwaukee with a sub-2.00 ERA until he was shut down with a strained tendon in his pitching hand. Walks a few too many batters, but has all the tools to be in Milwaukee’s rotation - perhaps as early as 2022.

 

#3 (+2) Aaron Ashby, LHSP, age 22, AAA Nashville

552 points - 27 of 27 ballots

Ashby’s electric fastball/slider combo has gotten him a couple of stints in Milwaukee this summer (with mixed results). He has struggled with his control at times - leading some to believe his future is in the bullpen - but the Brewers say they will continue to develop him as a starter.

 

#4 (-2) Brice Turang, SS, age 21, AAA Nashville

550 points - 27 of 27 ballots

While Turang has shown a little more pop, his walk rate has suffered and his K rate has increased as he’s moved into the upper minors. This has lead to solid, but unspectacular stats. It should be noted that Turang has been young compared to his competition for much of his pro career. With Willy Adames entrenched at SS in Milwaukee, some speculate that Turang could be a trade chip in the future.

 

#5 (+2) Hedbert Perez, OF, Age 18, ACL

519 points (1 1st place votes) - 27 of 27 ballots

While the sample size is small (less than 30 games), the toolsy Perez has come out big - producing lots of power and excitement. If he finishes the season strong, expect him to be one of the organization’s most watched prospects next year.

 

#6 ( new ) Sal Frelick, OF, Age 21, A- Carolina

507 points - 26 of 27 ballots

Milwaukee’s top pick in the 2021 draft, Frelick comes into the organization with a reputation as an outstanding hitter and defender. The only thing missing from his arsenal is power - which the club hopes will develops over time. While he’s only played a dozen or so games as a pro, Frelick has not disappointed with a .300+ BA.

 

#7 ( Re-entry ) Joe Gray, Jr., OF, age 21, A+ Wisconsin

436 points - 27 of 27 ballots

Gray broke out big early this year by pounding Low A pitching. He’s cooled off since his promotion to High A ball, but combined, he’s produced an OPS of .940 as well as 18 stolen bases. Gray still has a lot of swing-and-miss in his profile, but the speed/power combination he possesses could be formidable if he adapts to more advanced pitching.

 

#8 (-4) Mario Feliciano, C, age 22, AAA Nashville

426 points - 26 of 27 ballots

Feliciano’s ranking took a dive due to injuries that have limited him to less than 30 games this season (including a one game stop with the big league club). Still only 22, look for the sweet swinging backstop to re-position himself as the team’s catcher of the future in 2022.

 

#9 (-3) Antoine Kelly, LHSP, age 21, A- Carolina

404 points - 25 of 27 ballots

The buzz around Kelly faded a bit in 2021 due to injuries - limiting him to a handful of innings. Look for a reboot in 2022 for the man who has some of the best raw stuff in the Brewers’ system.

 

#10 (+2) Jefferson Quero, C, age 18, ACL

392 points - 25 of 27 ballots

Quero’s professional debut has gone well (albeit in just a couple of dozen games). He’s hit for average and shown a good eye at the plate (.400+ OBP). Quero’s reputation as an excellent receiver only enhances his potential.

 

#11 (new) Tyler Black, 2B, Age 21

377 points - 26 of 27 ballots

One of the best college hitters in 2021, Black, who is Canadien, has not yet made him professional debut due to visa issues. He should hit for average and take his share of walks once he gets his chance to take the field.

 

#12 (+1) Zavier Warren, UTL, age 22, A+ Wisconsin

304 points - 26 of 27 ballots

Warren has played C, 3B and 1B in 2021 - making him an intriguing utility option. In his pro debut this year, he has shown some solid power and a good walk rate. While his batting average has hovered around .250, the Brewers believe that will improve as he adapts to better pitching.

 

#13 (-3) Eduardo Garcia, SS, age 19, ACL

272 points - 25 of 27 ballots

Garcia is getting his first action in almost two years, and the rust has shown with mediocre numbers thus far (although with less than 100 ABs). Still, Garcia has a great glove and a projectable frame - making him a player who could be special as he matures.

 

#14 ( new ) Korry Howell, OF, age 22, AA Biloxi

271 points - 26 of 27 ballots

Howell got noticed in 2021 by slugging a dozen HRs at Wisconsin - earning him a promotion to AA ball. Howell has good size, speed, and has shown the ability to take walks. However, he does have some swing and miss issues that may limit his ceiling.

 

#15 (-7 ) Freddy Zamora, SS, age 22, A- Carolina

233 points - 23 of 27 ballots

Zamora barely played organized ball in 2019-20 due to injuries and last year’s pandemic. His bat has been solid - showing promise, including a good batting average and walk rate. An athletic shortstop, he has also demonstrated a plus arm, glove and range.

 

#16 ( new ) Felix Valerio, 2B, age 20, A+ Wisconsin

224 points - 23 of 27 ballots

The diminutive second baseman has leapt into the Top 25 with an impressive 2021. Valerio has hit for average (.300+), shown speed (20+ SBs), strong on base skills (.420+ OPS), and good bat skills (more walks than strikeouts). It all earned him a recent promotion to Wisconsin. At only 5’6”, Valerio’s upside may be limited, but no one will care about his height if he keeps producing.

 

#17 (+7) David Hamilton, INF, age 23, AA Biloxi

179 points - 19 of 27 ballots

I have speed. 40+ stolen bases of speed! I have a questionable hit tool - but I have speed. That makes me an interesting prospect - enough to reach AA in my first professional season.

 

#18 ( new ) Jake Cousins, RHRP, age 26, Milwaukee

153 points - 16 of 27 ballots

The Brewers signed Cousins out of the independent leagues in 2019 and he developed a wicked slider and seized the opportunity presented to him - becoming a key member of the big league bullpen this year. It’s been a pretty amazing ride for the former 20th draft pick. This is likely going to be the last time Cousins is eligible for this list - so it was nice having you, Jake.

 

#19 ( new ) Alex Binelas, 3B, age 21, A- Carolina

123 points - 16 of 27 ballots

The Brewers 3rd round pick in this year’s draft is a local kid - from Oak Creek, WI. The left handed hitting Binelas - who has only played a half dozen games thus far in 2021 - likely won’t hit for a high average - but he has power to spare.

 

#20 (-3) Dylan File, RHSP, age 25, AAA Nashville

102 points - 15 of 27 ballots

File missed most of 2021 with a fractured elbow, so anything he does in 2021 is a bonus. When healthy, File showed the ability to command his pitches - plus a recent uptick in velocity - making him a viable arm for Milwaukee’s staff.

 

#21 (+2) Jackson Chourio, SS, age 17, DSL

100 points - 14 of 27 ballots

Chourio has held his own in his professional debut. One of the top international players in 2020, he is a tall, lean kid who has the potential to grow into a 5-tool player.

 

#22 (new) Justin Bullock, RHP, age 22, AA Biloxi

90 points - 10 of 27 ballots

After some uninspiring numbers his first few years as a pro, Bullock improved his velocity and has broken out in 2021 - putting up solid numbers across three levels. The key for Bullock will be if he can continue his success against advanced hitting.

 

#23 (new) Russell Smith, LHP, age 22

70 points - 10 of 27 ballots

The Brewers #2 pick in this year’s draft out of TCU, Smith is a towering guy - 6’9” - and has a reputation for a good fastball and excellent command (something taller players often struggle with). He has not played yet in 2021.

 

#24 (new) Abner Uribe, RHP, age 21, A- Carolina

69 points - 11 of 27 ballots

Uribe’s fastball has been clocked at 103 mph. Can he control it? Well, not yet. But 103 mph is hard to teach - so that makes the guy intriguing.

 

#25 (-16) Tristen Lutz, OF, age 22. AA Biloxi

64 points - 15 of 27 ballots

A former Top 10 prospect in our community poll, many predicted 2021 was the year Lutz would breakout as one of the system’s top power bats. Instead, he struggled and then got hurt - and has not played since early July. It’s basically a lost year for young man. He’s still young enough to make good on his promise - but the clock is ticking.

Thanks to everyone for participating in the latest version of our Top 25 Prospect Poll. It’s been a year and a half since we’ve had some real minor league numbers, so there were a lot of changes.


Here are some numbers:

 

Exited Top 25: Carlos Rodriguez, Luis Medina, Micah Bello, Max Lazar, Corey Ray, Jesus Parra, Clayton Andrews (all dropped by #25), and Payton Henry (traded)

Newcomers: Frelick, Black, Howell, Valerio, Cousins, Binelas, Bullock, Smith, Uribe

Number of ballots: 27

Number of players on ballots: 61

Mr. Irrelevant (1 vote, 1 point): Israel Puello and Evan Reifert

Likeliest to graduate by end of the year: Cousins

 

Observations:

 

- We had one player get a 1st place vote (Ernesto Martinez) that did not make the Top 25.

- Huge drops from some long time top 10 type players, including Lutz and Ray.

- A lot of the people leaving the Top 25 dropped out - only one graduated or was traded. Many of these players have struggled in 2021 - with injuries a big role for some of the players.

- Many of the short season ball players are being judged on very small sample sizes - less than 30 games.

 

Please know that all write ups are my own observations and opinions.

 

Also, this process involves a lot of cutting and pasting, so if you see any mistakes, please drop me a PM and I'll correct. Thanks.

I wonder if this poll was taken now how many guys who are outside the top 25 would be in it. Maybe Mendez and Wiemer?

 

It is interesting that there are about half as many players with single digit votes as last time despite I believe the same number of ballots. Although, perhaps in part because of injuries to some of the sleepers, it does really feel like there is a group of about 50 after which there is a pretty clear tier-break but not a lot of distance between 20-50, so having fewer single-digit guys I guess makes sense.

 

Also, I'll stand by giving Reifert his one point. Since the calendar turned to July, in 25 2/3 innings: ERA, 0.70; WHIP, 0.89; K/9, 15.4; K/BB, 4.89.

Thanks to reilly for putting this whole thing together again & to everyone that submitted a list. It's been great just having a minor league season at all after last year, but to have so many guys putting up encouraging results has made it that much better.

 

MLB club currently sporting the 4th highest World Series odds with most of the team under control for next year & beyond.

 

At the upper levels / top of the list you've got Ashby (& even Feliciano) who have already seen MLB briefly this year with Turang, Small & Mitchell likely on the cusp for 2022/23.

 

Then there's a group of like a dozen hitters at the lower levels that will surely see some attrition & might not have the prospect clout of say Fielder / Braun / Weeks / Hardy / Hart, but it wouldn't surprise me at all if a few guys turn out in more of a sneaky Lucroy / Cain / Brantley kind of way.

 

Biggest weakness right now is probably that the pitching is a little thin after Ashby/Small. You've got File/Bettinger for upper level high floor low ceiling types, Kelly/Uribe for premium stuff high risk at the lower levels before it kind of falls off a little bit to guys with more question marks.

 

Also really intrigued to see which arms emerge from the DR complex over the next couple years. Brewers haven't invested much in terms of big bonuses for pitchers compared to position players on the international side, but with the organizational strides that have been made on the pitching development front since Stearns & company got here I wouldn't be surprised if they unearth a gem or two.

I'll take a look at the full-season stats when it comes time for the post-season Top 25 voting.

 

Martinez may drop due to injury, but like Howell, he added tools - in this case, he stole over 20 bases and he seems to be able to play a decent center field (and that could mean he also handles left field as well). It's a first-place vote I'll gladly stand by, especially if he shows the same stuff in Wisconsin. He always had the walk rate, and I figured power would develop.

 

Howell was 1B to Martinez's 1A on my ballot, and I almost flipped them. For Howell, I'm flashing to Baez, and what he did for the Cubs in 2016-2018. During that time, Baez saw time at all four infield positions as well as left field and right field. In a sense, Howell is superior since he's also seeing time in center.

 

I'll also stand by my high rankings of Fry and Weston Wilson, a pair of versatile bats who see action all over the field. I think they'll fill bench roles cheaper and better than the folks who've been pulled off the waiver wire.

 

I once said that if you developed even #3-5 starters, it would have value because you don't pay a Matt Garza or Randy Wolf eight-figure salaries. The same logic applies to these bench type-players.

 

Mitchell and Small rounded out my top 6, and both will be good.

If you think Fry & Wilson will only fill bench roles, why rank them higher than Mitchell & Small who you think will both be good?

In the case of Fry, it's a very plus bat that plays well at catcher in addition to the other positions. I could see him forcing his way onto the 26-man at the start of 2022. Wilson has Hernan Perez's versatility with OBP skills and is a contender for the 2022 26-man roster, also at the start of the season.

 

Mitchell, I think, has a 2023 ETA, and Small will probably come up mid-season 2022. They have higher ceilings than Fry and Wilson, but the latter two could contribute from the start of 2022. Honestly, I think Wilson would be a decent call up NOW.

 

I've liked Fry and Wilson for a long time.

A shorter ETA is not justification for ranking them higher. The ranking should be about their ceiling, shouldn't it? Can't you just admit that you enjoy being contrarian simply for the sake of being contrarian?

The issue with guys like Wilson and Fry is, do the Brewers see them as prospects? Because if they don’t, the chances of them making an impact with the team are minimal. I didn’t have either in the top 25, but if they are added to the 40-man at the end of the year, they probably move into the 20-25 range for me.

I don’t think ceiling should be the be-all-end-all but a combination of that and the likelihood to reach whatever that ceiling may be. Low ceiling/high floor types still have value, especially for small and mid-market teams.

I think it's ok to give a guy higher up the ladder a *slight* boost, as you can look at as he's more polished and more likely to reach his ceiling. He's more projectable at that point, perhaps

 

A 23 year old at AAA who projects to be a decent bench guy shouldn't be rated higher than an 18 year old at rookie ball who was a top 3;draft pick though. That 18 year old may flame out, but his ceiling is a lot higher.

How do you tell if that player you drafted, whether with a top-10 pick or in the 31st round, is developing? Best way I can think of after several years of doing the top 25 ballots is to look at the stats and see how they've produced, and to look at the trends.

 

To me, Ernesto Martinez and Korry Howell have shown breakthroughs this year - huge ones that I am projecting to very productive players - and I ranked them on my ballot accordingly. I also think that both Fry and Wilson have both produced consistently in terms of offense. They've also proven themselves to be versatile defensive players - across five or more positions (Wilson all four IF positions and the corner OF spots; Fry as a C/1B/2B/3B/LF/RF/CF). Hummel offered slightly less versatility (C/LF/RF/1B) but a bat that would have played well.

 

The way I see it, the Crew, as a small-market team needs a regular flow of the bench guys, mid-rotation guys, and bullpen role players as well. As Cooper Hummel showed, their value may not be just on the Brewers 26-man roster, it could be a rental, or maybe we get those lottery tickets from another small-market club.

 

The Yankees and Dodgers can afford to give out a nine-figure contract every year or so, as can the Red Sox, Padres, Angels, the Cubs, and White Sox. The Brewers can only do that once or (if they maximize their revenue) twice a decade. So, they need to develop a lot of their bench help, bullpen assets, etc. in-house whenever possible. That's why Fry and Wilson went 3-4 and Mitchell and Small were 5-6.

That doesn't explain whatsoever why you rank Fry and Wilson 3-4 and Mitchell and Small 5-6. I understand the value of developing MLB depth in the system, but that really has nothing to do with ranking future prospect value. Do you honestly believe that Weston Wilson is going to have more future value to the Brewers than Garrett Mitchell? Because that is what you are saying with your rankings.

Speaking of Hummel, what happened to your boy Clancy?

 

246/356/377 so far in the hitters paradise of Reno with his walk rate down to 13.7% vs 24.4% at Nashville.

 

Meanwhile, Arizona has the 2nd worst record in MLB with 30 year old Christian Walker putting up a 74 OPS+ at 1B, 35 year old Asdrubal Cabrera putting up a 96 OPS+ at 3B, 33 year old David Peralta putting up an 88 OPS+ in LF, and 33 year old Kole Calhoun putting up a 73 OPS+ in RF.

 

The D-Backs have also given the call to guys like Jake Hager (15 OPS+), Drew Ellis (26 OPS+) and Bryan Holaday (54 OPS+) instead of Hummel.

 

You'd think with so many old/terrible guys getting PAs in ARI that Cooper could crack the roster somewhere, maybe in September?

For as much attention as Clancy's picks get, in reality, so long as the number of voters stays at least where it is now, you could make a case that his ballot helps correctly place a certain type of prospect on the also receiving votes list. There isn't anything all that exciting about Fry, but the list of guys who have hit as well as he has (especially among those who don't have previous AA experience) since the Brewers affiliate moved to Biloxi is short enough where he probably belongs about where he is on the also receiving votes list. He is one of those guys who if he showed up in the 20-25 range on anyone else's ballot I don't think anyone would be all that shocked.

 

Not defending where he has them placed (or his sticking by QTC over a host of more viable relief options), but when folded in with the other results those outliers who he ranks high probably have a net neutral effect on the final list.

Yup. Looking at how the voting shook out there are around 21/22 guys who ended up with 100+ points & appeared on over half the ballots who are pretty much the consensus prospects.

 

After that, the margins are so thin that you could really put just about anyone in those last couple few spots & not have it be that much of a stretch.

Freddy Zamora quietly having a nice season. He's up to .290 with an .800 OPS on the year. 13%+ walk rate. Strikeout rate is below 20%. .394 OBP.

 

Considering he barely played for two straight seasons - it's a nice showing. He's almost 23, so he's a bit older than his peers - so I suspect they'll move him aggressively. The big thing will be if he can add a little power.

 

No matter, I think a lot of people downgraded him after he started the season pretty 'meh'.

Considering he barely played for two straight seasons - it's a nice showing. He's almost 23, so he's a bit older than his peers - so I suspect they'll move him aggressively. The big thing will be if he can add a little power.

 

No matter, I think a lot of people downgraded him after he started the season pretty 'meh'.

 

I may move him up if he keeps it up. It was probably about shaking off the rust.

I agree with this completely and he’s transitioned nicely moving from low-A to high-A so far. Isn’t he a plus defender at SS too?

The Brewers named Joey Weimer their offensive POY this year. Dude hit .295 with a .405 OBP between A and A+.

 

It doesnt appear he received a single vote in the mid-season rankings.

 

If we re-voted today I would have him in the top 10.

 

Wiemer had 29 points, the 38th highest total.
