Brewers continue to add international teenage talent destined for the Dominican Summer League. OF Isaac Curbata is out of Venezuela, pictured here two years ago.

We should learn some minimal specifics (basic vitals) no later than when the media guide is released this spring.

Curbata listed at 5'11", 165, born 2/24/02, so he'll be 17 next month.

The Brewers have fourteen 16-year-old's under contract, the youngest being Venezuelan 3B Jesus Parra, who won't turn 17 until August 30th. He'll be just 16 throughout the entire upcoming Dominican Summer League season.

Shame about Fox. Someone mentioned him the other day as a bounce back. Solid pitcher if he could have ever got on mound. Injuries kill

Brewers announced the minor league free agent signing of 27-year-old 2B/3B Bruce Caldwell, six years in the STL system, 2018 in the Yankees chain, career .256/.341/.409 (.750 OPS).

From MiLB.com, on his 2018 campaign, where he was the second baseman on the Yankees' all-organizational team:

Second baseman -- Bruce Caldwell, Trenton (74 games), Scranton/WB (48 games):

The Yankees signed Caldwell on March 30 after the 26-year-old spent the first six years of his professional career in the Cardinals organization. In 122 games between Double-A and Triple-A, Caldwell hit .258/.342/.404 with 41 extra-base hits -- including tying a career-high with 30 doubles -- 57 RBIs and 53 runs scored. The 2012 15th-rounder was shuttled between the Eastern League and International League for most of the season as he played four different stints with the RailRiders, leaving his mark with an extra-inning grand slam (video at link above) to seal a 7-2 playoff victory.

"Bruce is a guy who can play anywhere, and we used him where we needed him between Double-A and Triple-A, and he was huge for us," Raad said. "He put together great at-bats all year, the coaches love him and he really saved us at times. I feel like he really found his niche there with us."

And That said:

Joining Uribe on the Brewers Blue roster are INF Alberis Ferrer, RHP Cristian Sierra, and the aforementioned Tyler Gillies.

As I mentioned on Twitter, Ferrer quietly had a really good summer in 2018 DSL play. Sierra hasn't pitched professionally yet since signing in July 2017.

Kurcz was once traded for Theo Epstein, and this is how he made a final impression on the Crew this week.

Michael O'Neill spent his first several pro seasons in the Yankees' system:

Some additional Dominican Summer League kids coming stateside (links to Baseball Reference pages):

17-year-old Venezuelan C/1B Jesus Chirinos (turns 18 on July 27th) - .254/.394/.387 line (.782 OPS in his rookie 2018 season); his dad was a former Brewer farmhand

18-year-old Venezuelan starting RHP Leoner Colina - Only 17 walks and a 2.31 ERA in 13 starts in his debut campaign, he was signed for only $15,000

18-year-old Venezuelan OF Oswel Leones - LH bat played primarily LF/RF in his debut 2018 season (two games in CF), a sweet .289/.389/.374 line (.763 OPS), more walks (28) than K's (25) in 225 AB's. It's not likely Leones was a big-bonus signee, as that info was never released.

17-year-old Venezuelan 2B/3B/1B Luis Silva (turns 18 on July 6th) - 44 of 50 base hits were singles, but only 26 K's in 210 AB's gets one to the Arizona Rookie League

19-year-old Venezuelan C/1B Roberto Molina - Regardless of country of origin, if your last name is Molina, you are a catcher (Yadier and brothers are from Puerto Rico). Roberto is the only player here with two seasons in the Brewers' system.

Brewers seem to hit consistently with their Venezuelan signings, and by "hit", mean find prospects of early interest and potential. None of these five received significant bonuses.

Via the Twitter account Milwaukee Prospect Report (Brad Krause and the former MillerParkProspects crew):

TWEET: "Doing a little late-night reading of the 2019 Media Guide and noticed that infielder Jean Cruz and newly-signed catcher Jeyner Baez will both be moving to the mound this season as the Brewers look to convert them to pitchers."

TWEET: Found a few injury updates in the media guide, all four listed here offseason shoulder surgeries. 2017 4th round Illinois high school LHP Brendan Murphy (September 7th, missed all of 2018 with left biceps tendinitis), 2017 8th round RHP Jayson Rose (October 11th, missed all of 2018 save for two brief late July Maryvale starts with a right rotator cuff strain), Mario Feliciano (November 1st) and Max McDowell (December 7th).

NOTE: Both Feliciano and McDowell have already been listed as playing in minor league spring training games.

So THAT is what happened with Drake Owenby...

I had wondered why he'd vanished after starting out pretty well.

Good luck in the future to Brewers farmhand middle infielder Trever Morrison (12th round, 2016, out of Oregon State), who has reportedly retired. Morrison, soon to be 24, split 2018 between Wisconsin and Carolina. Bat never quite got going, even out of the gate in Helena.

16-year-old pitcher signing out of Colombia, have to love translated articles:

Fray Mórelo became this coming new player from Santiago de Tolú to be signed by an organization of organized baseball in the United States.

The 16-year-old baseball player signed a contract with the Milwaukee Brewers, after being assessed his strong arm and power at bat.

In tests prior to the contract, which was carried out at the Notaria Única de Santiago de Tolú, he made launches of 92 miles and proved his great talent as the king of sports.

This is the product of years of constant and disciplined work, which was carried out with the professional advice of a particular coach in the city of Cartagena, according to the player.

The athlete was happy and at the same time committed to giving even more on the pitch, now representing the team whose major league roster plays in the Central Division of the National League.

Asterio Mórelo Julio and Senith González, parents of the athlete, also celebrated with great joy this achievement, also applauded by the fans of Sucre, especially the Toludeña.

The signing of the contract was developed with Teófilo Gutiérrez and José Luis Barraza, representatives of Milwaukee and was attended by parents, grandparents and close relatives of the player several times called to Selection Colombia.

Fray Mórelo González started practicing the discipline of baseball at the age of 6 years at the Astros Amigos school, directed by the toludeño Óscar Luis González, who discovered his potential.
