16. OF Luis Medina

Our next spot brings us to our first Brewers International signee on our Preseason Top 25 Prospects list. Luis Medina, a 16-year-old from Venezuela, was signed for $1.3 million last summer after being listed at No. 13 on MLB Pipeline’s available International prospect list.

Medina hasn’t played any games in the Brewers system yet on account of being so young. Still, there is a ton to be excited about when it comes to his future. According to MLB Pipeline:

"“The 6-foot-2 outfielder has an easy, majestic swing with well-above-average power and the ability to hit to all fields. Defensively, Medina has a chance to play center field, but he could wind up outgrowing that position and moving to a corner outfield spot. If that’s the case, he still projects to be an average defender with an above-average arm in the future.”"

Outfield is a position where the Brewers could use some more high-end depth. By the end of 2019, outfielders only accounted for three of the top 15 prospects for the Brewers per MLB Pipeline.

Medina’s contributions may still be years away. But with the way his tools are described, it’s no surprise that he finds himself so high on Milwaukee’s prospect lists, including ours where he sits at No. 16.
