1. Keston Hiura

It was hard to believe that Keston Hiura wasn’t the top name on MLB.com’s list, too. Hiura is the most polished hitter in the Milwaukee Brewers Minor League system. He’s currently shredding the Arizona Fall League, and it’s looking more and more like he’s going to stick at second base.

Hiura can hit for power, spray line drives all over the field, and can draw a walk. He plays a premium position, and is giving every signal that he’s ready for the Majors. If the Milwaukee Brewers went after a top trade target, Hiura would be the first name every team would want included.

Next. Is MadBum a trade target for the Brewers?. dark

GM David Stearns has made it clear that Hiura will only leave for an elite arm or a generational bat. If the Mariners ask for Hiura in a 1:1 deal for Paxton, the Brewers probably don’t make that deal. It would likely take Corey Kluber or Jacob deGrom coming back to get the Brewers to part with Hiura.
