Milwaukee Brewers Farm System

You could make a pretty good case that the 2011 draft put the Brewers back a few years as far as drafting quality impact MLB players. They drafted Taylor Jungmann & Jed Bradley in the first round, both have yet to make their MLB debuts. While players like Sonny Gray, George Springer, CJ Cron and Jose Fernandez were available around their pick and are off to great starts in the bigs. Both Jungmann & Bradley have suffered their share of bumps in the road.

 

The 2012 draft produced the likes of high school slugger catcher Clint Coutler who smacked 22 homers last season with 73 walks and 103 strikeouts finishing the year with a .287 average. 2011 second-round pick Tyrone Taylor is probably their best bet to make it to the bigs the fastest out of all their prospects. He is an athlete who has shown above-average speed and is an average defender. The 2013 draft didn’t produce a first round pick as they forfeited it when they opted to sign free-agent right-hander Kyle Lohse. In hind-sight he’s been pretty good.

Just for sh**s & giggles, at their pick #17 they could have selected Marco Gonzalez, Hunter Harvey or even Billy McKinney. Any of which would have been safe picks. The last time the Brewers did not have a first-round pick was the June amateur draft in 1990. I do like their 2014 pick of LHP Kodi Medeiros. His unconventional delivery has a pause for concern but the makeup and projectability is there. He’s a bit raw but profiles to being a quality reliever in the bigs. The Brewers do not have currently have prospect in our Top 100 List.
