The Milwaukee Brewers future will take on the Minnesota Twins future in the Southern League final as the Biloxi Shuckers will take on the Chattanooga Lookouts in the Southern League Championship series starting Wednesday. Brewers fans have seen all year that the Shuckers’ roster is packed with stars, but here is a look at their opponent as the Shuckers look to take home a title.

Adam Brett Walker II
Walker brings a ton of power and a ton of strikeouts. The Milwaukee Lutheran graduate easily was the home run leader (31 homers) and he was also easily the strikeout leader (195 k’s). He is a very dangerous bat in the heart of the Lookouts’ lineup.
If it wasn’t for Kepler, Shuckers’ Orlando Arcia could make a case for Southern League MVP. Kepler batted .322, good enough for second in the league and he led the league in both slugging percentage and OPS. These numbers make him possibly the most dangerous bat in the Southern League.
Like the Brewers, the Twins have a lot of shortstop depth and Polanco has been one of the leaders of the Southern League and already saw time in Minnesota. With speed and a high average, he is another driving force in the Lookouts’ lineup.
On the mound the Lookouts do not possess the same type of arms that the Shuckers have, but they still have pitchers that have had quality seasons. Their best starter this year has been Baxendale. This year he has put together his best season as a professional by going 7-5 with a 3.80 ERA in 21 starts.
