As a whole, the Brewers minor league affiliates have been impressive this year. The Nashville Sounds, Biloxi Shuckers, Carolina Mudcats, and Wisconsin Timber Rattlers are have records at or above .500.
June can be a tough month for baseball players. It marks the third month of the season and fatigue can start to become an issue. On the flip side, three months in also is when some players start to get fully settled in and start performing better.
Here, we will take a look at three prospects who stood out during the month of June. Only one of them is currently ranked in the Brewers top 30.
Biloxi Shucker Infielder Cam Devanney
In his second season with the Shuckers, 25 year old Cam Devanney has already surpassed a few statistics that he achieved in 2021 and is very close in setting new career highs in some categories. His 17 doubles and 10 home runs are good enough for career bests and equate to a .497 slugging percentage. He needs just four more RBI to tie his career best that was set during rookie level ball in 2019.
Devanney used a tremendous month of June to help get his season totals up to where they are now. In June, he hit for a .316 batting average and collected a team best 30 hits. He mashed eight doubles and four home runs on his way to a .958 OPS. His OPS trailed just Jackson Reetz who put up a 1.017 OPS on the month.
Carolina Mudcat Catcher Jefferson Quero
At 19 years old, the Brewers sixth ranked prospect had an outstanding month of June. He collected 24 hits over 74 at bats, which equates to a .324 batting average. He hit three doubles and four home runs during that time while also drawing nine walks. Perhaps most impressively, he struck out just ten times in June.
Quero is quickly establishing himself as the Brewers catcher of the future. In a podcast featuring the Mudcats broadcaster Greg Young Jr, he described Quero as having former prospect Payton Henrys defensive ability behind the plate while also possessing current prospect Mario Feliciano’s hit tools. There is a lot to look forward too with Quero as he continues to develop.
Wisconsin Timber Rattler Pitcher Justin Jarvis
In his second season with the Timber Rattler’s, Justin Jarvis is excelling. The former fifth round pick in the 2018 draft struggled in 2021, but then went on to pitch well in the Arizona Fall League. He has carried that momentum into 2022 and had an incredible month of June.
Over five starts and 29.1 innings pitched, Jarvis put up a 2.45 ERA on the month. He struck out 42 batters while walking just eight. Opposing batters had just a .187 batting average against him and his WHIP was 0.95. With all the success he is having, it might be worth seeing what he can do at a level higher against better batters.
