3. Jacob Misiorowski, RHP
The Brewers are known for their development of pitchers and next up on the list is Jacob Misiorowski. He is a 6-foot-7 right-hander and has a flamethrower of a fastball, mixed with a solid slider as part of his pitch mix. In 2022 he was drafted in the second round and is already expected to arrive in the Majors next year and as the third ranked prospect in the Brewers organization, there is every chance we see him playing at American Family Field.
In 2023 he played in Single-A, High-A and then started five games at Double-A where he registered a 2-1 record with a 5.57 ERA. At Single-A his ERA was 3.04 and then dropped to 1.90 at High-A. In Double-A Biloxi he struckout 36 batters and had an average of .215. It is more likely that Misiorowski spends the season at Triple-A Nashville before potentially making the Majors in late 2024.
His four-seamer spent most of 2023 around the mid-90s but can supposedly reach triple digits which would be a real asset for the Brewers. It tends to rise up in the zone and is a real struggle for batters to make any sort of contact with when it is at those high speeds. A cutter allows variation and as mentioned his slider is deadly and has batters chasing out of the zone.
Given the Spring Breakout is just the one game, expect Misiorowski to be on the mound for a couple of innings and be throwing serious heat against anyone that steps up to the plate. He did that in the Futures Game this past summer and opened a lot of eyes with his performance.
