Clint Coulter was part of the Milwaukee Brewers’ top ten prospects before the season began, but first half struggles and trades made him slip far down the list.
After the mid-season prospect update by Baseball America and MLB.com switching up the rankings after the trades, it was clear Clint Coulter was falling down the list of a strong Milwaukee Brewers farm system. But, it’s not so not so much of a surprise.
Even with a .246/.329/.397 batting line and 123 wRC+, he was #8 for Baseball America, so there was high hopes. But, now with a .225/.292/.337 batting line with an 82 wRC+ with all other numbers going down (much like the A to A+ numbers), it’s no surprise he’s fallen down the rankings.

It may be a surprise to some Milwaukee Brewers fans he’s gotten called up to the Biloxi Shuckers with those numbers, but at the same time he is 23 years old and was a 1st round pick for the organization back in 2012. Others thought it was long awaited, but his oblique injury at the start of the season may have set the timeline back a bit.
No matter what, Coulter gets a new start and the High-A numbers don’t matter as he ended up setting a record in his first start with the Shuckers. So, let’s check out the record and the other players this week that made an impact on the team this past week that went 4-2 since Monday.
