Top Position Prospect #1- Brice Turang
Brice Turang is an infield prospect currently assigned to the Brewers’ AAA affiliate. He was selected 21st overall by the Brewers in the 2018 amateur draft.
Turang split the 2018 season between Rookie Level affiliates of the Brewes. He started out for the AZL Brewers, but was soon promoted to Helena. Between the two clubs, Turang hit .283/.396/.352 with one home run and 18 RBI. In 2019, Turang played for the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers before being promoted to Carolina and A+ level ball. Between the two blubs, Turang hit .256/.367/340 with three home runs and 37 RBI.
Turang is still very young, just 20 years old. He is a left-handed batter with little power. He is not expected to make an appearance with the Major League club until at least 2022.
Top Position Prospect #2- Mario Feliciano
Mario Feliciano is the Brewers’ third highest rated prospect in their system. The catcher was drafted in the supplemental second round of the 2016 amateur draft.
Feliciano first played for the organization in the Arizona Fall League in 2016. During that time, he hit .265/.307/.359 in 29 games. Last season, Feliciano made it to the AA club, but spent most of the season with A+ Carolina. In four minor league seasons, he has compiled a .255/.315/.391 slash line. He has also compiled a .985 fielding percentage and has thrown out 27% of would-be base stealers. Feliciano is just 21 years old and is not expected to reach the Majors until 2021.
Top Prospect #3- Tristen Lutz
Tristen Lutz is a center field prospect who the Brewers drafted with the 34th overall pick in the 2017 draft. This is the same draft in which Keston Hiura was taken ninth overall. Lutz is currently the Brewers’ fourth best-rated overall prospect and their top minor league outfielder.
Lutz made an immediate great impression after he was drafted. In 40 games with Helena in 2017, Lutz hit .311/.398/.559 with nine home runs and 27 RBI. In three minor league seasons, Lutz has compiled a slash line of .260/.339/.442 with 35 home runs and 144 RBI. Lutz is just 21 years old and has yet to advance to the AA level. He is expected to crack the Majors in 2022.
Top Prospect #4- Eduardo Garcia
At 17 years old, Eduardo Garcia is one of the youngest prospects in the Brewers’ system. The short stop from Venezuela was signed in 2018, and at the time was the 20th ranked foreign talent outside the United States.
Last year was Garcia’s first season in professional ball in the U.S. He showed tremendous promise by hitting .313/.450/.469 in 10 games in the Dominican Summer League. Garcia fractured his right ankle and was put on the 60-day DL, ending his first professional season. Due to his youth, he is not expected to reach the Majors until 2023 at the earliest.
Top Prospect #5- Hedbert Perez
Hedbert Perez is another young 17-year old prospect for the Brewers. Like Eduardo Garcia, he also is from Venezuela. He was signed as an international free agent on July 2, 2019. He has yet to play any games for a Brewers’ affiliate.
Perez is the Brewers’ seventh highest touted prospect. Scouts believe Perez is going to be a star on the Major League level. One goes as far to say, “we’re talking about a true man-child that has major league power today. Not tomorrow, today.” In addition, he has above-average defensive capabilities in center field. And I haven’t even mentioned that he is praised as a natural clubhouse leader.
This is the prospect Brewers’ fans should be most excited to see. Expect him to appear in Milwaukee no earlier than 2023.
