Brewers prospects set to move up prospects lists #2: SS Daniel Guilarte
Another international signing out of Venezuela, Daniel Guilarte was in the same signing class as Jackson Chourio in 2021. While Chourio has rightfully garnered all the headlines from that class, Guilarte is a pretty solid #2 prospect from that group.
Guilarte has made the jump to full season ball this year, playing with Lara in Low-A Carolina. All he's done down there is hit as well.
The 19 year old Guilarte is hitting .292/.404/.346 and despite just five of his 38 hits going for extra bases (three doubles, two triples), he has 22 RBIs to go along with 23 walks, 16 stolen bases, and a .750 OPS.
On top of his bat playing well, Guilarte has excellent speed, as evidenced by his stolen bases, and athleticism. Guilarte is a gifted defender at shortstop and has the ability to stick there long-term. The glove was his calling card at signing and now his bat has been coming around. There's a chance for him to add some power as well although it's not a present part of his game. Guilarte hits the ball on the ground quite a bit.
The bat plays and there's still plenty of room to grow. MLB Pipeline currently has Guilarte ranked 14th while Baseball America has him 21st. He's landed on the IL in Carolina unfortunately, but he has shown enough to make moves up lists when they're re-ranked.
