Milwaukee Brewers: 2022 All-Minor League Affiliate Team
By Matt Carroll
Another season is in the books for the 2022 Milwaukee Brewers minor league affiliates. And it would be hard to say that it wasn’t a successful one all-around across the organization.
Three of the four Brewers affiliates finished with winning records in the Low-A Carolina Mudcats (69-62), High-A Wisconsin Timber Rattlers (69-60), and Triple-A Nashville Sounds (91-58). Meanwhile, the Double-A Biloxi Sounds (67-68) were just a couple games from achieving that mark themselves.
The Sounds were by far the cream of the crop. Their 91 wins were the second most in franchise history and propelled them to an International League West Division title. Sadly, their final game would be a loss to the Durham Bulls in the International League championship.
Of course, none of that would be possible without talented prospects and the Brewers have been stockpiling more of those in recent years. It showed as the organization started moving back up from the bottom of many sites’ minor league rankings, including MLB Pipeline, and the team saw more prospects among top 100 lists as well, including one in Pipeline’s top 10 by season’s end.
With the season all wrapped up, it’s time to look back at which players helped make the organization’s year so successful. And what better way to do that then to create an end-of-year team comprised of the best at each position?
Here is your Reviewing the Brew 2022 Brewers All-Minor League Affiliate Team.
Jeferson Quero (Carolina, Wisconsin)
Honorable mention: Mario Feliciano (Nashville), Jakson Reetz (Biloxi/Nashville), Darrien Miller (Wisconsin)
After impressing last season at the Arizona complex, Jeferson Quero (Brewers No. 7 prospect per MLB Pipeline) got his first taste of affiliated ball in 2022. He did well enough to earn a midseason promotion and hit a combined .286 with a .780 OPS in 95 games while showing off his highly regarded defense. He is also one of eight players taking part in this year’s Arizona Fall League.
Mario Feliciano bounced back from a slow start to have a batting average over .300 for much of the year before settling in at .274. Jakson Reetz led all Brewers minor leaguers with 25 homers. Darrien Miller finished the season with a .760 OPS and was second on the Timber Rattlers in 2022 with 12 homers and fifth with 40 RBIs.
