This week the MLB announced that they will be introducing a new event called the Spring Breakout and the inaugural event will take place next March 14-17. The Milwaukee Brewers are scheduled to face the Kansas City Royals on Sunday March 17th at 4:05 p.m. ET and paired with a Major League doubleheader.

Roster rules allow any prospects to play, regardless of Minor League experience and so the event will allow fans to see a wide range of talent from across their team's organization. With the Brewers having one of the best farm systems in the MLB, here are seven must-see prospects in the 2024 MLB Spring Breakout.

7 must-see Brewers prospects who should participate in the 2024 MLB Spring Breakout

7. Luis Lara, OF, S/R

First on the list is 19-year old Venezuelan outfielder Luis Lara. The switch-hitter signed in January 2022 for $1.1MM and has shown incedible signs of development that have put him as the 8th ranked propsect in the Brewers organization. At such a young age, he isn't expected to be called up until 2027 but he is already someone to keep an eye on.

Lara played in 17 games at High-A Wisconsin, registering a .290 average and on OBP of .351. In the 70 games in Single-A Carolina he had a batting average of .285 and an even better OBP of .379. That switch hitting ability is strong but his running ability is one to keep a lookout for. 30 stolen bases in 2023 and it is the area that has received the highest scouting grade.

So far he has proven to be a better hitter from the left side but overtime that should level out as he continues to work his way through the Minors. At just 5-foot-9, he isn't the most powerful of hitters but his bat speed and ability to hit with the barrel allows him to get on base at a good rate and as mentioned, cause some worry on the basepaths.

The defensive side is solid and that speed certainly helps in the outfield. His bat will continue to progress but at just 19 he has a long way to go in terms of development and could become a staple of the outfield. Hopefully we can see a glimpse of that in March.
