    Scouting Report

    Ashby can enjoy the top prospect slot until our next poll - but after that, he is gone as he has firmly worked his way onto the big league roster. He sports a deadly fastball/slider combo, but will need to continue to work on his control if he wants to be a rotation fixture.

    Brewers 3, Pirates 1 - Ugly Wins Still Count the Same in the Standings

    It was a sight we’ve seen all too many times this season across baseball - bad weather, weak bats, fielders standing where the ball is hit - but the Brewers did what they’ve done all season; they scored just enough runs to win while they leaned on their pitching staff to hold onto that lead late.

    Brewers Opening Day 2022: Season Preview and Predictions

    At approximately 1:20 this afternoon, the Milwaukee Brewers will open their season at Wrigley Field against the Cubs. Game 1 of 162 for the Brewers as they attempt to win the NL Central Division and advance to the World Series for the first time in 40 years, and hopefully win the first World Series championship in team history.

    Scouting Report

    Wiemer burst onto the scene with a huge run in Wisconsin (A+) last year - hitting .336 with 14 HR in just 38 games. There's so much to like: speed, power, great hair. Should be one of the system's most exciting players to watch in 2022.

    Brewers Minor League Link Report (5/21): Things Stay Knarr-ly in Wisconsin, Weather Rears its Head in the Southeast, and Wiemer Finishes a Triple Shy of the Cycle

    The Biloxi Shuckers could not overcome Noah Zavolas' continued struggles since his 2022 return and, ultimately, fell to the Mississippi Braves. Elsewhere in the system, Wisconsin batters found their strokes and supported the ever-dominant Brandon Knarr who continues his lights out 2022 campaign. The Carolina 'Micro Brews' managed to hold on to their slim lead after an extensive weather delay pulling out a 2-1 victory, and Nashville was shut down by inconsolable and fickle weather after taking a 7-0 lead into the third inning. Let's get into the Recaps!

    Brewers Minor League Week in Review (4/19-25): Sounds, Shuckers Run to First Place

    Week 3 of the minor-league season is complete. Two of the Brewers affiliates, both Triple-A Nashville and Double-A Biloxi, are first-place teams. High-A Wisconsin is in second place. Low-A Carolina is the lone affiliate under .500, at 7-8. Several top prospects had big weeks, so as Week 4 is about to begin, let’s look back at Week 3.

    Brewers Minor League Link Report (4/22): First-Rounders Clicking

    Minor league coaches always remind players that as long as they have a uniform on, they have their chance to contribute at the big-league level for their organization. That is true, but clubs need to hit on their premier draft picks in order to maximize their talent base at the game's highest plateau. While Mother Nature slowed down red-hot 2021 1st round OF Sal Frelick Friday night, the Brewers other most recent top picks (OF Garrett Mitchell. LHP Ethan Small, and SS Brice Turang) had tremendous evenings.

    Scouting Report

    Frelick tore up low A ball last year (.437 BA) - then crashed on his promotion to Wisconsin (.167). Frelick probably won't ever mash a lot of HRs, but he projects to hit for high average, play good defense, and be a terror on the bases.

    Brewers Minor League Week in Review (4/26-5/2): K is for Knarr

    The Brewers are in first place. Entering game action this week, the Triple-A Nashville Sounds and Double-A Biloxi Shuckers are also in first place. High-A Wisconsin Timber Rattlers and Low-A Carolina are currently in second place. The Brewers farm system is strong. Find out who performed well throughout the system over the past week.

Low-A Carolina is the lone affiliate under .500, at 7-8. Several top prospects had big weeks, so as Week 4 is about to begin, let’s look back at Week 3.

    Brewers Minor League Link Report (4/20): A Tight One, A Comeback, A Slog, and Nashville Cruises

    Carolina doesn't always score first, but they can still pull out a victory when they fail. Big lefty Russ Smith experiences a rough and frustrating outing in Appleton's wild n' wooly, cold and windy, thrilling comeback affair. Biloxi scuffles and struggles but nearly pulls one out in a long slog for a game. And Nashville does Nashville things scoring many more runs than their opponents.

    JC Mejia Suspended 80 Games for PEDs

    For the second time already this season, a Milwaukee Brewers player has been suspended for 80 games following a positive PED test. JC Mejia will miss the nearly three months of games and be ineligible to compete in the 2022 playoffs. 

    Brewers Minor League Link Report (5/6): Wild Walk-off for Wisconsin (Literally)

    For the second time on the young season, the Timber Rattlers walked off without having to lift the bat off a shoulder. The Mudcats rode a special starting lineup to a tight victory that went deep into the Carolina night. On the flip side of the W-L ledger, the Sounds' Ethan Small allowed twice as many earned runs in the first inning as he had allowed in his prior five starts combined. Remember when the Shuckers opened the season 7-0? Good times. Since then? 5-13, ouch. Ready for your daily round-up? Here we go!

    Scouting Report

    Turang's profile has changed little since Milwaukee drafted him. He gets on base, plays a good SS, but lacks power. Still, he profiles as solid - if unspectacular - starter in the majors. With Adames entrenched at SS in Milwaukee, the question will be where he gets his chance in the big leagues.

    Brewers Minor League Link Report (5/11): T-Rats Win Ensures Affiliates Avoid an 0-4 Night

    The Shuckers fought back in their matinee game but reverted to the poor form seen during their recent seven-game skid. The Sounds clawed their way back to even but faded late with three uncharacteristic runs conceded by the bullpen. Carolina lost a well-pitched low-scoring affair in Fayetteville. BUT, all was literally not lost: Wisconsin kept plugging away and ultimately won on a classic move the runner brand of baseball late and a vintage May 2022 closing performance from Cam Robinson. 

    Brewers Minor League Link Report (5/7): Sounds and Timber Rattlers Continue to Impress

    It's hard not to be impressed with the consistency we're seeing at Nashville and Wisconsin, and not just in terms of wins and losses, but overall play. The Biloxi roster is too talented to continue their current funk, one would think, but the Shuckers are in danger of being swept in a six-game series. Carolina is entertaining regardless of decision. Let's check out Saturday's action.

    Brewers Minor League Link Report (5/14): Thirty-Five Runs Power a 3-1 Night

    The affiliate bats were up to the task on Saturday night, leading the way to wins at the top three levels of the Crew's system. RHP Tyler Herb, a recently-turned 30-year-old with two stints in the Seattle system on his resume, in addition to minor league stays with San Francisco and Baltimore, continued to shine in Biloxi, making his case for the Brewers to find room on a crowded Nashville roster. Though the kids in Carolina dropped their contest, their bats were hardly idle. Warmer temperatures bringing about crooked numbers, yeah, we're ready!

    Brewers Minor League Link Report (4/20): A Tight One, A Comeback, A Slog, and Nashville Cruises

    Carolina doesn't always score first, but they can still pull out a victory when they fail. Big lefty Russ Smith experiences a rough and frustrating outing in Appleton's wild n' wooly, cold and windy, thrilling comeback affair. Biloxi scuffles and struggles but nearly pulls one out in a long slog for a game. And Nashville does Nashville things scoring many more runs than their opponents.

    Let's get into the recaps!

    Hit for average? Check. Advanced defender? Check. Plays a difficult position? Check. Only 19 years old? Wow! Quero has emerged as one of the most intriguing prospects in the Brewer system due to his youth, all around skillset, and ability to play a position that is often hard to develop.

    Scouting Report

    Zamora fell off many people's radar last summer when he began the year with lackluster numbers. But we can't forget that Zamora essentially missed two years of baseball (injury followed by COVID season). But once he got back into the groove, he was great - finishing the season with a .300 BA. Zamora's lack of power limits his upside, but he is athletic and plays good defense - which means he should find his way to the big leagues at some point.

    Scouting Report

    One of the best college hitters in 2021, Black, who is Canadien, has buoyed his numbers by taking a high number of walks. He should get on base at a high clip - but his lack of defensive versatility will likely limit his ability to be a utility player.

    Brewers Minor League Link Report (5/21): Things Stay Knarr-ly in Wisconsin, Weather Rears its Head in the Southeast, and Wiemer Finishes a Triple Shy of the Cycle

    The Biloxi Shuckers could not overcome Noah Zavolas' continued struggles since his 2022 return and, ultimately, fell to the Mississippi Braves. Elsewhere in the system, Wisconsin batters found their strokes and supported the ever-dominant Brandon Knarr who continues his lights out 2022 campaign. The Carolina 'Micro Brews' managed to hold on to their slim lead after an extensive weather delay pulling out a 2-1 victory, and Nashville was shut down by inconsolable and fickle weather after taking a 7-0 lead into the third inning. Let's get into the Recaps!

    Brewers Minor League Week in Review (5/10-5/16): Wiemer Powers Shuckers

    Transactions are coming today. Some very exciting promotions at that. Check back throughout the day for more and do discuss those moves. Nashville remains in first place after a 4-2 week. Biloxi returned to their winning ways with a 4-2 week. Wisconsin went 5-1 again. Carolina played at .500. Several top prospects had huge weeks. How might an updated Brewers top prospect ranking look?

    Scouting Report

    If Valerio was 4-5 inches taller, he'd be a top 100 prospect. But he is not (only 5'7"), which limits his physical upside. No matter, Valerio has gotten people to notice him due to his ability to hit and walk (.300+ BA, .400 OBP), plus his outstanding contact skills (more walks than strikeouts). Valerie is limited to playing 2B - so he will need keep hitting.

    Brewers Minor League Link Report (5/03): Promotions and Releases and Retirements, Oh My!

    With Micah Bello cashing in on a fantastic start to his season, he packed his bags and headed north to Appleton. In his wake, we watched the much anticipated promotion and debut of Jackson Chourio back in Carolina. Rex Brothers was sent packing from Nashville and Moises Gomez filed his retirement papers. Oh, and there were games. Four of them. I tuned in live for the full performance of newly promoted Sal Frelick (playing in left field tonight) filling out the Biloxi outfield with absolute studs. All in all, Carolina and Wisconsin raked and put up a combined 23 runs while Biloxi and Nashville each coughed up late leads. Let's get to the report!

    Scouting Report

    Feliciano’s ranking continue to drop after injuries limited him in 2021. The big question for Feliciano is if he can rise to the level of being a legitimate major league catcher. If not, there's some concern his bat isn't good enough to play at 1B or the OF (which would be his likely destination). 2022 will be an important year for the once heralded prospect.

    Brewers Minor League Link Report (5/17): Promotions Aplenty, a Center Field Showcase, a 3-1 Evening Overall

    One of the absolute joys of religiously following the Minor League Brewers affiliates is seeing young men rewarded for their tireless hard work. Congratulations and high fives abound on this Minor League Monday - check out the bountiful 'Transactions' below. I personally witnessed several jaw-dropping plays from the center field position from High-A Wisconsin up to Triple-A Nashville. It was truly one spectacular game-winning or game-saving play after the next. From Jonny Davis' game-saving diving catch or his game-tying home run, to Joe Gray Jr's game-winning two-run bomb over the wall in left field in the bottom of the eighth inning of a 1-1 game, to Sal Frelick laying out in shallow center for a crucial out in a 6-2 game. An incredible evening to witness. Let's get into the reports!

    Gray broke out big early last year by pounding Low A pitching, but came back to earth at High A ball. He still strikes out at an alarming rate, but the man's speed/power combination was tantalizing to see. Brewer fans would just love to see Gray put it all together for a full year.

    Brewers Minor League Link Report (5/17): Promotions Aplenty, a Center Field Showcase, a 3-1 Evening Overall

    One of the absolute joys of religiously following the Minor League Brewers affiliates is seeing young men rewarded for their tireless hard work. Congratulations and high fives abound on this Minor League Monday - check out the bountiful 'Transactions' below. I personally witnessed several jaw-dropping plays from the center field position from High-A Wisconsin up to Triple-A Nashville. It was truly one spectacular game-winning or game-saving play after the next. From Jonny Davis' game-saving diving catch or his game-tying home run, to Joe Gray Jr's game-winning two-run bomb over the wall in left field in the bottom of the eighth inning of a 1-1 game, to Sal Frelick laying out in shallow center for a crucial out in a 6-2 game. An incredible evening to witness. Let's get into the reports!

    Highlights from Timber Rattlers Media Day

    The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers and new manager Joe Ayrault met the local media for the first time on Wednesday. Here are some of the highlights from their comments as they prepare for Opening Day on Friday:

    Garcia is no longer a teenage phenom. Injuries and COVID have limited his development, but he still possesses excellent defensive skills, which alone could carry him to the majors. But Garcia is still a raw talent - and his bat will need to develop if he is to be more than a utility player.

    Brewers Minor League Link Report (5/7): Sounds and Timber Rattlers Continue to Impress

    It's hard not to be impressed with the consistency we're seeing at Nashville and Wisconsin, and not just in terms of wins and losses, but overall play. The Biloxi roster is too talented to continue their current funk, one would think, but the Shuckers are in danger of being swept in a six-game series. Carolina is entertaining regardless of decision. Let's check out Saturday's action.

    Scouting Report

    Warren projects as a switch hitting, super utility player. He is a solid, all-around hitter - showing a little bit of everything at the plate. It's not sexy - but the skillset could make him a very valuable major league player.

    Brewers Minor League Link Report (5/21): Things Stay Knarr-ly in Wisconsin, Weather Rears its Head in the Southeast, and Wiemer Finishes a Triple Shy of the Cycle

    The Biloxi Shuckers could not overcome Noah Zavolas' continued struggles since his 2022 return and, ultimately, fell to the Mississippi Braves. Elsewhere in the system, Wisconsin batters found their strokes and supported the ever-dominant Brandon Knarr who continues his lights out 2022 campaign. The Carolina 'Micro Brews' managed to hold on to their slim lead after an extensive weather delay pulling out a 2-1 victory, and Nashville was shut down by inconsolable and fickle weather after taking a 7-0 lead into the third inning. Let's get into the Recaps!

    Brewers Minor League Link Report (5/11): T-Rats Win Ensures Affiliates Avoid an 0-4 Night

    The Shuckers fought back in their matinee game but reverted to the poor form seen during their recent seven-game skid. The Sounds clawed their way back to even but faded late with three uncharacteristic runs conceded by the bullpen. Carolina lost a well-pitched low-scoring affair in Fayetteville. BUT, all was literally not lost: Wisconsin kept plugging away and ultimately won on a classic move the runner brand of baseball late and a vintage May 2022 closing performance from Cam Robinson. 

    Brewers Minor League Link Report (5/03): Promotions and Releases and Retirements, Oh My!

    With Micah Bello cashing in on a fantastic start to his season, he packed his bags and headed north to Appleton. In his wake, we watched the much anticipated promotion and debut of Jackson Chourio back in Carolina. Rex Brothers was sent packing from Nashville and Moises Gomez filed his retirement papers. Oh, and there were games. Four of them. I tuned in live for the full performance of newly promoted Sal Frelick (playing in left field tonight) filling out the Biloxi outfield with absolute studs. All in all, Carolina and Wisconsin raked and put up a combined 23 runs while Biloxi and Nashville each coughed up late leads. Let's get to the report!

    Uribe throws smoke. He averaged 99mph on his fastball last year, which makes him very intriguing. Going forward, Uribe will need to work on his control as he simply walks too many batters. If he can harness his pitches, he could be a devastating reliever.

    Brewers Minor League Link Report (4/27): Carolina Wins, a Couple Eerily Familiar Late Losses, and Biloxi Hangs On

    Baseball is a game of situational demand: you either meet the moment in a timely and skillful fashion, or you do not. In some games, you earn multiple opportunities to meet that moment, and in other games, you receive but one or two. The Sounds left the bases loaded in the seventh and tenth innings and suffered for it; Wisconsin came back to tie their game in the eighth inning but relinquished this tie in the following half of the same inning. All was not lost, metaphorically speaking, organizationally - Carolina fought their way back into the victory column, and Biloxi held on by the strength of pitching and a two-run bomb by Joey Wiemer. Let's get into the recaps!

    Brewers Minor League Link Report (4/26): Carolina Postponed and Tough Losses Across the Board

    If you haven't reviewed the fantastic Brewers Minor League week in review by our own @Seth Stohs (read here), please do so. It will get you situated for the week ahead. As always, we all hope for winning results with a keener eye toward player development and game evolution.

    Unlike the large amounts of runs given up in the lower levels to close out last week, we began our Minor League Monday with several low-scoring affairs across the board throughout the majority of the contests - though Biloxi's contest ended a wee wonky after a tough error in left field. Let's see how the teams fared overall, knowing leads were lost in the middle innings and late.
