The Milwaukee Brewers have built themselves a pretty strong farm system. Of course, this group of prospects is led by their top prospect, Jackson Chourio. The young outfielder is only 18 years old, yet has been drawing praise from all over the baseball world. Today, it was announced that Chourio has been named the MVP of the Carolina League. The Carolina Mudcats, the Brewers’ Low-A affiliate, shared the news on Twitter.
In 62 games with the Mudcats, Chourio batted .324/.373/.600 with 23 2B, 5 3B, 12 HR, 47 RBI and 10 SB.

Jackson Chourio’s First Season of Professional Baseball
As far as first professional seasons go, it is hard to do any better than what Jackson Chourio did. His stats with the Carolina Mudcats have already been given, but that was not the only level of minor league baseball that he played. Chourio was promoted to the High-A Wisconsin Timber Rattlers late in the summer. In Appleton, Chourio hit .252/.317/.488 with eight home runs and 24 RBI.
Later in the season, Chourio was given a brief stint with the Brewers’ Double-A affiliate, the Biloxi Shuckers. He only appeared in six games for the Shuckers, managing just two hits in 23 at bats.
Overall, Chourio hit .288/.342/.538 with 20 home runs and 75 RBI in his first professional season. He added 30 doubles, five triples, and 75 runs scored. Additionally, Chourio stole 16 bases in 20 attempts.
