MLB Pipeline has finally provided their full mid-season re-ranks of their Top 30 prospects lists. The update includes 2023 Draftees and reflects changes based on in-season performance. The Milwaukee Brewers list in particular has seen a lot of moving and shaking.
The Brewers farm system is brimming with talent. Some of the players on this list have been putting up excellent seasons and rose up the rankings while some have had down years and have dropped down or fallen off the list completely.
Here's a complete look at the movement in the mid-season Brewers top 30 prospects list.
The entire top five in the Brewers Top 30 saw no change. All five of Jackson Chourio, Sal Frelick, Jeferson Quero, Jacob Misiorowski, and Tyler Black are in Pipeline's Top 100 overall prospect list and none of them leapfrogged each other. Also staying put was Daniel Guilarte at 14th in the system.
A total of seven players on the pre-season Top 30 list moved up in the rankings. LHP Robert Gasser went from 7th to 6th as he's performed well in Triple-A and is in position to earn a promotion soon. Another pitching prospect, Carlos F. Rodriguez went from 10th to 7th, right behind Gasser as he's dominated Double-A this year.
A trio of Carolina Mudcats also find themselves moving up the list. Luis Lara vaulted into the Top 10, going from 12th to 9th. This year in Low-A as an 18 year old, Lara is hitting .287 with a .383 OBP and 22 stolen bases. Logan Henderson moved from 23rd up to 20th while Luke Adams also saw a slight bump from 27th up the 24th. Henderson and Adams were later Draft picks that have put up good numbers in Low-A.
The final names moving up are from the international ranks. Yophery Rodriguez saw the biggest rise from the previous rankings to the mid-season update, moving from 26th up to 15th. He's hitting a stellar .284/.432/.514 with 12 doubles, six homers, 12 stolen bases, a 39:28 BB/K ratio, and a .946 OPS in the Dominican Summer League. Hitting for power, average, and speed will boost a prospect stock quickly. Another 2023 international signee, Filippo Di Turi jumped from 30th to 22nd. He's hitting .306 in the DSL with a 27:28 BB/K ratio and an .804 OPS.
