Prospect Profile: Franly Mallen

Major League Baseball held their annual first-year player draft last week with thousands of young players selected during the three day event.

WALK LIKE A JUNG-MANN BY: RYAN KAUFMAN The time has finally come for Taylor Jungmann. He will make his MLB debut on Tuesday for the Milwaukee Brewers in Pittsburgh.

Prospect Profile: Nevin Ashley

Renaissance Man By: Ryan Kaufman The most impactful member of the Colorado Springs Sky Sox this season is not who you might think. It is not a top prospect in the Milwaukee Brewers system, or even someone that fits the idea most people have of a prospect. It’s 30-year-old catcher Nevin Ashley. Ashley is experiencing […]

Prospect Profiles: Knebel / Sardinas

Brewers Got Something In Knebel, Sardinas By: Ryan Kaufman With all apologies to the band Tesla, they wrote the lyrics backwards in their song, “What You Give.” It’s not what you give, it’s what you got. This offseason, the Milwaukee Brewers gave Yovani Gallardo to the Texas Rangers. What they got, was a pitcher with […]

Prospect Profile: Luis Aviles

Change is constant in the world of minor league baseball, and if there’s one thing that Milwaukee Brewers shortstop prospect Luis Aviles thrives at, it’s adapting to change. Born in Havana, Cuba, the slick-fielding 20-year-old moved to the United States at the age of 12, and after spending his high school years in Miami, Florida, […]

Prospect Profile: Orlando Arcia

20-year-olds aren’t supposed to do what Orlando Arcia does on the baseball diamond. But the young Venezuelan shortstop is mature beyond his years and has handled himself against older competition at every level, making a name for himself as one of the Milwaukee Brewers top prospects. Originally signed by Milwaukee in October of 2010, Arcia […]

Prospect Profile: Drew Gagnon

As a former third round pick, who has enjoyed success at every level he’s pitched at, there may be no Brewers prospect who gets more overlooked than pitcher Drew Gagnon. Originally drafted out of high school by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the tenth round of the 2008 draft, Gagnon came quite close to pitching for […]

Prospect Profile: Taylor Williams

When the Milwaukee Brewers surrendered their first round pick in the 2013 draft in order to sign veteran pitcher Kyle Lohse, it made it that much more important for them to be able to add top talent beyond the first round to strengthen their farm system. If the 2014 season is any indication, they may […]

Prospect Profile: Jorge Lopez

When scouts look at prospects there are certain things that are easy to measure. Height, weight, velocity, etc. One thing that’s a bit more difficult to measure however, is a player’s heart. In 2014, pitcher Jorge Lopez showcased the heart of a champion as he battled through adversity off the field, to turn in his […]

Prospect Profile: D’Vontrey Richardson

When it comes to tools and raw talent, there may be no player in the Brewers organization blessed with more than outfielder D’Vontrey Richardson. The Washington Nationals saw that talent early on and selected the Georgia native in the 35th round of the 2006 draft.  Though Washington pushed hard to sign Richardson, he had other […]
