C Jacob Nottingham

.237/.298/.337 / 8 HRs/31 RBIs / 6.4 BB%/29.5 K%

Nottingham’s HR was how he started his 5-game hitting streak. While a small streak like that doesn’t seem like a big deal for most players, it is when your AVG hasn’t been over .250 since July 4th. While he’s not near the top for much in the hitting category, the HR tied his teammate Tyrone Taylor for 4th among the Shuckers team. He had 17 total just last year going through low-A and A+ with the Astros and A’s minor league teams.

RF Clint Coulter

.524/.583/.714 / 1 HR/3 RBIs / 5.0 BB%/15.0 K%

More from Brewers Prospects

Coulter didn’t cool down one bit as he’s had a hit in every one of his 8 starts. This past week he had 9 hits including a 3-run home run yesterday that gave the Shuckers a chance in the 9th inning before they lost 5-3. The 5th spot in the lineup will hopefully give Coulter more opportunities to drive runners in as he’s currently 11-21 overall.

OF Brett Phillips

.226/.320/.391 / 13 HRs/50 RBIs / 11.7 BB%/31.5 K%

While Phillips’ overall numbers are better than Nottingham’s, they’ve been much the same in the 2nd half of the season as their stats have been stumbling. His K% continues to be at an all-time high while his wRC+ is just above average at 106. This past week he got 6 hits including a solo home run. Like Nottingham, still time to up the numbers just a bit before the end of the season.
