Most fans of the Brewers are familiar with the names of the top outfield prospects in the organization.  A few names include Jackson Chourio, Sal Frelick, Garrett Mitchell, Joey Wiemer, and Hedbert Perez.  At 19 years old, Jace Avina is an outfield prospect who is quickly on the rise. Avina was drafted in the 14th round of the 2021 MLB draft.  He currently is not on the Brewers top 30 prospect list, but after a strong performance this summer in the ACL league he was promoted to Low-A Carolina.  On Saturday night he made his debut and crushed a pair…

Unfortunately, 2022 has been Mcgee’s worst statistical…

Interestingly, the Brewers did not draft an outfielder in this year’s draft.  That doesn’t mean that they eventually won’t transition out from their drafted position to the outfield, but it is something worth noting.  Overall, the team selected six infielders, four catchers, and 11 pitchers.  Two of the pitchers drafted are left-handed and they selected one switch-handed pitcher in Jurrangelo Cijntje.
