Timber Rattler Bats

If the Class-A Wisconsin Timber Rattlers are popular among Brewers fans in 2016, it is likely due to the break out season posted by infielder Isan Diaz.

Trending Up, Trending Down In Brewers’ Minor-League System

THREE TRENDING UP SS Orlando Arcia Arcia has blossomed into a bona fide top-100 prospect, if not more. He’s hitting .308/.351/.448 with four homers and eight stolen bases for Double-A Biloxi, and his defense has also gotten rave reviews from scouts.
