Milwaukee Brewers: The 2016 draft class looks fantastic
4 of 8
The Milwaukee Brewers selected Braden Webb in the third round of the 2016 draft out of the University of South Carolina.
Webb started the 2018 season at High-A, but he ended the year at Double-A. Webb tossed 120 2/3 innings across two levels in 2018, and managed a 4.03 ERA. He struck out 128 and walked 66. Webb still has some development to accomplish, and it’s unclear that he’ll stick in the rotation, but he looks like a real prospect at this stage of his career.
He should start the 2019 season in Double-A. He won’t turn 24 until late April, and should reach Triple-A sooner rather than later.
