It is Spring Training time and all eyes are on the Milwaukee Brewers as their players are reporting. There are several spots up for grabs that the players will be fighting to earn.
Minor League Camp is starting too. Several players who are getting ready to show what they can do in the depths of the Milwaukee Brewers organization in 2018. Brewers Player Dev on Twitter released a list of 144 players that will be at this camp.
This camp might not get all the attention on the MLB level, and with good reason, but it is still exciting. There is some real talent at the set to show up, and plenty of opportunity. This list is updated as of February 13th, and it is subject to change.
There are 15 catchers, seven first baseman, seven second baseman, eight third baseman, 10 shortstops, and 21 outfielders. Overall, that is 68 position players slated to start camp when it officially opens.
There will be more detail on these players as they come up, but there are some great prospects on this list. Among them are Corey Ray and Lucas Erceg. Other names to look out for are Jake Gatewood, Trent Grisham, and Je’Von Ward.
It is worth noting that recently signed September base running specialist Quintin Berry is among the names on the list as well. He saw time with the Milwaukee Brewers last season, but will be working out with the farm system during Spring.
Though the farm system lost top prospect Lewis Brinson in the Christian Yelich trade, it is still in good standing. There is some real hitting talent here, and there is sure more to join. One name who is currently at the MLB camp is Jacob Nottingham. He will not be starting the year in the MLB, but he is on the Milwaukee Brewers 40-Man roster.
