Trading Impact Prospects

The Milwaukee Brewers are entering uncharted territory for the David Stearns regime this winter. Stearns and his manager Craig Counsell have both spoken about not setting limits on what a team may be able to do in a given season, and that philosophy helped guide the team to a surprising 86-win campaign and near playoff […]

On the Rise: Monte Harrison

The Milwaukee Brewers tabbed Monte Harrison with the 50th overall pick in the 2014 MLB Draft knowing that he would be a project. The 6’3″ outfielder possessed athleticism in spades, prompting the Brewers to lure Harrison away from a collegiate commitment to Nebraska as a wide receiver with a well over-slot $1.8 million signing bonus.

Age in the Minors: A Levels

It’s easy to focus on the success stories of the 2016 Wisconsin Timber Rattlers and ignore the rough season endured by the 2016 Brevard County Manatees. The Milwaukee Brewers system really was split into two different prognoses this season, which provided an excellent reminder that work throughout a minor league system, even during a thus-successful […]
