  • Milwaukee Brewer Prospects Recognized for Their Defense

    Nate Palmer

    The Milwaukee Brewers have their eyes on some exciting, young prospects that could impact the major league roster in 2023. Two others a little further away from the major league roster have been recognized for their excellent defense.

    Sam Dykstra recently published MLB Pipeline’s All-Defense Prospect Team for 2023. The Milwaukee Brewers matched the Colorado Rockies, with each being the only teams to feature not just one but two players on this year’s first team. The two Brewers making national waves are catcher Jeferson Quero and second baseman Robert Moore

    C Jeferson Quero
    Quero has undoubtedly pushed his name into several conversations this offseason after his Arizona Fall League performance. While his 15 games didn’t showcase what has been traditionally a good bat, his glove and arm were on display. Throwing out 46 percent of all baserunners has a way of turning heads. Something that will only increase in value for Quero as changes have been made to MLB to promote more action on the basepaths. 

    While the Brewers' acquisition of William Contreras may initially feel like it blocks Quero, other options might exist. If the young Venezuelan continues to progress, Contreras’ bat plays well as a designated hitter, and Quero could start pushing for MLB at-bats within the next couple of years. Quero’s own bat could develop into a weapon boasting a .780 OPS in 2022 with a .860 OPS over 20 games at High-A Wisconsin.  

    2B Robert Moore
    Moore was just drafted by the Brewers this past summer in the second draft round, but this college draftee is already making waves with his defense. As is highlighted about Moore in his selection to this team, he showcases quick hands, allowing him to be an excellent up-the-middle defender. 

    It is those same quick hands that help fuel Moore’s offense as well. Something he has been showcasing as he plays in Australia over the offseason. Moore slashes .292/.386/.500 with a .886 OPS and six home runs as he plays for Brisbane. 

    Neither of these guys will likely see any time with the Brewers in 2023. In the next couple of years, they could be pushing for the major league roster, and it is great to see two guys in the talent pipeline for the Brewers that are being recognized as the best among their peers.

    What is the talent level in the ABL? The video of the home run was off of one of the worst curveballs I've ever seen from a professional.

    Pretty sure that photo isn't Quero, but Feliciano.  lol

    I stared at that thing for awhile but according to the press service, it's Quero so I threw up my hands and moved on.

    At one point I saw it said that it's seen as comparable to A ball or A+ ball. I watched a lot of T-Rats and Mudcats games last year and was able to watch one full game of the Bandits. Personally, I'd probably place it around that range as well.
