2017 Prospects

Milwaukee Brewers Top 10 Prospects

by Jeffrey Paternostro and BP Prospect Staff


Last year's Brewers list

The State of the System: This system has everything you want. Top-end impact talent, depth, a mix of pitchers and hitters, youth with upside, guys close to the majors. And Hader even gives you a dude with great hair. Like we said, everything.

The Top Ten

  1. CF Lewis Brinson
  2. LHP Josh Hader
  3. OF Corey Ray
  4. SS Isan Diaz
  5. RHP Luis Ortiz
  6. OF Brett Phillips
  7. OF Trent Clark
  8. 3B Lucas Erceg
  9. SS Mauricio Dubon
  10. RHP Cody Ponce

The Big Question: And (again) you may ask yourself, “Well, how did I get here?”

We’ve already covered how to have one of the worst farm systems in the majors, but we should give equal time to the best systems, of which the Brewers certainly are one. Now, you might think that simply a Costanzaesque plan of just doing the opposite of everything Jeffrey Loria and company do in Miami would be the solution here, and yes, that would work just fine. However, that takes a bit of time, good scouting, better development, and of course a dash of luck. And given the steep slope of expected returns in the MLB draft, it might also mean being pretty bad on the major league field for a while.
