The Milwaukee Brewers have the second-best prospect in all of baseball in outfielder Jackson Chourio. Milb.com goes position by position for each organization in the farm system. To no surprise, Chourio was one of the three outfielders who milb.com picked as an organizational minor league all-star this season in Milwaukee’s organization.
Gerard Gilberto of milb.com said about Jackson Chourio being one of the three minor league all-stars this season for the Brewers:
“Chourio was the fifth teenager to record a 20-40 season in the Minors since 1958. He collected seven hits in 21 at-bats (.333) during a brief six-game stint at Triple-A to end the season, and he’s continued to mash in the Venezuelan Winter League, where he has batted .379 through 17 games. Castro noted that Chourio cut down on his swing-and-miss while increasing his hard-hit ball rate and his focus going forward will be to keep building on the success he’s had so far.”
Jackson Chourio ended the 2023 season by playing for the Nashville Sounds after playing for the entire 2023 season in the minor leagues with the Biloxi Shuckers in Double-A. Chourio is only 19 years old, and he will start the 2024 season in Triple-A. He is projected to reach the majors sometime next season, but it will be interesting to see how long general manager Matt Arnold keeps him down in the minor leagues.
Milwaukee Brewers Outfielder Jackson Chourio Stats in 2023
Chourio is a right-handed hitter and a right-handed thrower who is 5’11” and weighs 165 lbs. Last season in the minor leagues, he had a .282 batting average with 22 home runs and 91 RBIs, along with 44 stolen bases. His on-base percentage was .338, and his slugging percentage .467.
With the Brewers having a loaded outfield led by Christian Yelich, there will be no rush for them to call up Chourio next season. When he does get the call-up to the big leagues, he will be a stud for the organization for the next 10-15 seasons and maybe beyond.
Chourio was signed as an international free agent on January 15, 2021. He will have the chance to impress in 2024 throughout the minor leagues. Will there be a point in April when the Brewers call up Jackson Chourio? He has the chance to be something special, and the only prospect in baseball that is ranked ahead of him is shortstop Jackson Holiday of the Baltimore Orioles.
