The Milwaukee Brewers elected to announce the addition of two Rule-5 draft eligible prospects a day before the November 14th deadline. Joining the 40-man roster is catcher Jeferson Quero and right-handed pitcher Bradley Blalock.
Jeferson Quero and Braley Blalock have been added to the Milwaukee Brewers 40-man roster and are protected from the Rule-5 draft.
Tuesday, November 14th at 5:00 p.m. eligible Rule-5 draft prospects have to be added to teams 40-man rosters in order to receive protection. Milwaukee has initially added their second overall prospect in Jeferson Quero as well as 17th ranked prospect Bradley Blalock. Other top prospects like Jackson Chourio, Tyler Black, Robert Gasser, and others are not Rule-5 draft eligible this year.
Jeferson Quero’s add is no surprise. The 21 year old ascended up several prospect ranking boards last season due to a breakout offensive season in which he belted a career best 16 home runs in 90 Double-A games. Behind the dish his defense was again impressive as ever and is highlighted by a throwing arm that most don’t even dare to test.
Bradley Blalock, who was acquired during the Luis Urias trade, was also added. The 22 year old has an impressive power curveball and a fastball that sits in the 92-95 MPH range. Across 15 starts in 2023 he finished with a 2.82 ERA and 67 innings pitched.
Other notable prospects who are Rule-5 draft eligible include Freddy Zamora, Justin Yeager, and Evan McKendry. They will likely go unprotected this December, but stand a less likely chance of being selected when compared to Jeferson Quero and Bradley Blalock.
