Reviewing the Brew is pleased to announce the release of our annual top Milwaukee Brewers’ prospect list. You can find our top prospects from last season here.
A handful of players were removed from the list due to eligibility and/or lack of production.
Without further ado, here are our top 15 Brewers’ prospects in 2014.
1. RHP Jimmy Nelson
2. OF Tyrone Taylor
3. SS Orlando Arcia
4. RHP Johnny Hellweg
5. OF Victor Roache
6. OF Mitch Haniger
7. 1B Hunter Morris
8. RHP Taylor Jungmann
9. RHP David Goforth
10. C Clint Coulter
11. 3B Nicky Delmonico
12. RHP Devin Williams
13. 3B Tucker Neuhaus
14. OF Jason Rogers
15. RHP Ariel Pena
Jimmy Nelson tops the list of a farm system that is one of baseball’s worst, and even he is projected to be a No. 3 or 4 starter at best.
Of all the prospects, Tyrone Taylor has the most upside. At 20 years old, Taylor has incredible raw offensive talent and covers the outfield well. He moved up 15 spots in our rankings from last season.
After a poor season in 2013, Clint Coulter almost fell out of our top ten. He hit .216 in rookie ball and .207 in High-A. Not great for a former first-round pick. However, Coulter turned it around a bit in the Arizona Fall League, where he batted .350 in 60 at-bats.
Devin Williams, the Brewers second-round pick of the 2013 draft, comes in at No. 12 after his solid performance in rookie ball. In 13 games (6 starts), he boasted a 3.38 ERA while not allowing a home run. Pretty good start for the young righty.
