Jake Gatewood, 1B
Jake Gatewood has been in the Milwaukee Brewers system since getting drafted with the 41st overall pick in 2014. He’s had his share of ups and downs, but he’s really started to develop in his time in Double-A.
A torn ACL in his left knee ended his 2018 campaign prematurely, but he should be close to starting baseball activity again in the Spring.
Gatewood is still rated in among the Brewers top-15 prospects, and it would be a shame to lose him this late in his development. Gatewood just turned 23 years old, and still has time left to develop. The knee injury is a setback, but it shouldn’t keep Gatewood off the roster. If the Brewers can find room, Gatewood should get a roster spot.
