Tyrone Taylor, an outfielder, was selected by the Brewers in the second round of the 2012 draft out of Torrance High School in Torrence, CA.

He spent most of 2014 with the Brevard County Manatees, where he slashed .278/.331/.396 in 130 games. In 11 games in the AFL this season he slashed .278/.331/.396.

Wagner, a starting pitcher, was drafted in the fourth round of that same 2014 draft out of the University of Utah. He was 14th on the Brewers top prospects list according to MLB Pipeline.

He’s moved up one level every year, from rookie ball in 2012, to low A in 2013 to high A in 2014. With the Brevard County Manatees he went 13-6 this season with a 1.86 ERA in 25 starts. He strikes out 7.1 batters per nine innings, and walks just 2.9 batters per nine innings.

He worked as a reliever in the Arizona Fall League, throwing eight innings in five games. He allowed two earned runs on three hits in that span.

Both players are several years away from sniffing the major league roster, but it is nice to see some of the top prospects in the Brewers organization get recognized.
