Taylor Reaches Roster

Once upon a time, Tyrone Taylor was considered to be one of the best prospects in all of baseball. The 2012 second-round draftee was rated as Milwaukee’s Number Two overall prospect prior to the 2014 season according to Baseball America, and he was ranked as the organization’s top prospect and baseball’s 93rd overall before the […]

Weston Wilson: Unlikely Javelina

The 2018 Brewers minor league season went out with a bit of a fizzle on Saturday evening, as the Biloxi Shuckers fell 3-2 to the Jackson Generals in game four of the Southern League Championship Series. Tough end notwithstanding, it was an interesting year for player development up and down the Milwaukee system, and particularly […]

Jon Olczak goes to Arizona

The minor league baseball regular season is drawing to an end, which means that the start of Arizona Fall League is rapidly approaching. The prospect hotbed is a fun follow not only because we get to see some of the top minor leaguers from all levels compete one against each other (like Vladimir Guerrero Jr, […]

Perrin / Biasi Trade

A few weeks ago, the Milwaukee Brewers and Kansas City Royals executed a minor trade that probably flew under the radar for most followers of the game.

Organizational No-No!

The Milwaukee Brewers fired their first salvo over the bow yesterday, landing right-handed reliever Joakim Soria in a swap with the Chicago White Sox. In exchange for […]

Relief Riser: Miguel Sanchez

If you take a look at raw stats for Brewers pitching prospects this season, one name stands tall above the rest. After Saturday, forty innings, he’s struck out 55 batters for a pace of 12.4 per nine innings. That’s almost four times his walk rate (3.2 free BB/9). His worst DRA- at any stop this season […]

Carbon Copies in the Outfield

Coming into the 2018 minor league season, expectations were down for former first-round pick Corey Ray. Ray had just wrapped up his first full season in the minors, spending the year at Class-A Advanced Carolina and scuffling to a .238/.311/.367 batting average (AVG) / on base percentage (OBP) / slugging percentage (SLG) line despite a […]

Danny Reynolds’s Long Road

The MLB Draft is a time of optimism. Ask an average fan, and their team’s first five or so picks are guaranteed to be future stars. Even in the later rounds, most selected players offer something to dream on: 70-grade raw power in spite of a nonexistent hit tool, say, or a promising fastball that […]
