1. Jackson Chourio, OF. R/R

Who else was going to take the top spot than the second-ranked prospect in all of baseball and now the highest-paid player yet to make a MLB appearance? Jackson Chourio's $82MM eight-year deal is the most money guaranteed for a player with no Majors experience and can rise to $142.5MM with options and bonuses.

Chourio has only played six games at Triple-A but has shown more than enough for the front office to feel he is worth building their franchise around. In those six games he averaged .333 and had an OBP of .375. At Double-A he averaged .280 and hit 22 home runs with 89 RBIs. Originally a shortstop, he now finds himself out in center field, using his highly rated speed to cover the outfield. At just 19, the Brewers found he was making light work of the Minors and so progressed him through as they tried to find tougher work for him.

Chourio appeared in the 2022 All-Star Futures Game and was the only player taking part that was born in 2004. At the plate he makes good contact and then his speed makes him a threat on the bases. Like most young players, his plate discipline and zone coverage are continuing to improve with time and once he has that nailed he will be a star in the big leagues.

Chourio will likely be a part of the Opening Day roster and Brewers' fans cannot wait to see him in action. Spring Training will allow him to work alongside the Major league players and face them, with the Spring Breakout giving him the platform to show why he is the second-ranked prospect in baseball.

Rosters for the event will be announced nearer the time and these were just seven Brewers prospects that are must-see in the Spring Breakout. Stay tuned for more Milwaukee Brewers news over the offseason.
