That's not an answer. Anybody in rookie ball is immediately disqualified because they're several years away from knowing what any of them could be. Which leaves us with 4 teams rosters to choose from. There aren't many names you can possibly list and you're choosing not to do it.

For me, the only for sure MLB arms in the system are Brown, Wahl, Supak, Rasmussen, Devin, Ponce, Ashby and half of them are pen arms. I think Ponce gets traded this month anyway and Devin very well could as well. Houser is a pen arm (and no longer a prospect). Small hasn't thrown a pro pitch yet. Bickford I'm just happy he's still breathing. Kirby is injured again.

Then there's a bunch of dudes at every level we still have no idea how it'll play out - Sanchez, Derby, Webb, File, Marcos Diplan, Lemons, Bettinger, Griep, Barker, Clayton Andrews, Lazar, Hill, etc. Most of these guys will probably never see the MLB level.


How about Dubon?

A relatively newer digital publication came out with their midseason top 100 prospect list (ranked in terms of fantasy baseball value)...

Prospects Live: Top 100 Midseason Fantasy Prospects for 2019

This list is written from the lens of fantasy baseball value, but is interesting to read through if you want to learn about a handful of players that haven’t appeared on the other more traditional midseason top 100 list. With the fantasy baseball tie-in the list skews more heavily towards stat based production. It also includes 2019 draftees.

They include two players within the Brewers organization...

5. Keston Hiura, 2B (MIL) - Coming into the season many viewed Hiura as possessing one of the best hit tools in the minors, but it’s his power gains that have been the story in 2019. Likely up in Milwaukee for good, Hiura has made loads of hard contact but has also been aggressive at the plate. Previous Rank: 9.

88. Trent Grisham, OF (MIL) - One of 2019’s biggest popup prospects, Grisham is back on the prospect map after his tremendous success in Double-A and now Triple-A. The 22-year-old is hitting .259/.370/.517 on the year and if you remove a very slow April, he’s up to .271/.393/.568. Since May 1 he’s walked more than he’s struck out and has shown great power (.296 ISO and top 10% in AAA flyball distance). If you want to knock him it’s that he’s slightly pull heavy so he’ll have to fight against the shift. But we’re drooling about the thought of a power lefty bat in Miller Park. Go and grab him if he’s available. Previous Rank: None.



It kinda blows my mind that a guy who was at one point considered the top pick in the draft last year and who comes and starts out the year in Low A, hovers around .300/.400 all year long and has great speed doesn't make the top 100.

But hey, if Grisham is this highly regarded, this would be a good time to trade him IMO.


If we don't come out of the break and go on a little run in the next 20 days, everyone should be made available, but if we do, Grisham should be the top prospect we push.


I think we have a better system than others. First of all, I think we need to start rethinking the "just a pen arm," phrase as though it's a huge deterrent. Really good pen arms as I think Ponce will be, Rasmussen will be, or others make everything easier.

Hell, our first round pick this year could be used in a manner similar to Hader(*we're not going to find another Hader, but we CAN use pitchers similar to how we used Hader last year when he was most effective). That's nothing to sneeze at.

You can live with a rotation with...for argument sake, Woodruff and Burnes at your top two guys(there's really no question Burnes is capable of being a TOR arm. Not an ace, but a good #2 and Woodruff is already a really good #2). Peralta could be a #3/4 or a nice reliever. And then you have about 10 guys who could be really good relievers by next year.

You can afford to lean on the pen and go to them early and often if you have one or two guys who can go 6-7 each time out and you have a deep and versatile BP.

The Brewers don't have a Padres like system(obviously) but they have one where they can fill in just about any other spot. They have a utility IF'er who looks like he could hit in Dubon, we have a good looking young loogy in Daniel Brown, we have a ton of young catchers, never know who'll stick there.


The difference is, this system is exciting if your big league team is performing like it should be. If Peralta, Burnes, Aguilar, Shaw, Moose, Grandal, Braun, Cain, Yellich, Arcia, Jeffress, Hader are all performing a reasonable amount above or below their expected performance. Instead you have Peralta, Burnes, Aggie, Shaw, Cain performing about =12 WAR below they should be. Jeffress and Arcia doing enough to kinda go under the radar, and just Yelly, Woody, Hader, Moose, Grandal the only ones meeting or exceeding expectations.

Specific to fantasy baseball, power > speed. Power leads to HR, RBI, OPS, etc. Turang is also only in low A, now high A. Turang in my opinion is the better prospects, but I can see how fantasy gurus are more intrigued by Grisham right now.

More mid-season rankings (with a fantasy focus slant). This is free content

https://prospects365.com/2019/07/15/ray ... prospects/

154 Brice Turang
156 Trent Grisham

I didn't see a listing for Hiura so he must have graduated from this sites ranking protocols..

Coming into the season it was Brown, Ashby, Webb, Supak & Diplan on the BF.net top 25.

Small is for sure in there now. Brown, Webb & Diplan all seem to have tenuous grasps on their spots at the moment.

Rasmussen is another possibility at this point, though I think he ends up in the pen. I love Andrews but think he is a reliever (& center fielder, of course!) too.

My personal top 5 starting pitching prospects right now are probably Ashby, Small, Supak, Zavolas, Lazar.

Love his production so far this season, cut his walks while increasing his strikeouts & moved up two levels from last year. Not bad for a 21st round pick out of a small school in the baseball hotbed of Utah.

It would appear the organization is higher on File than Zavolas since he already got the bump to AA.
