The Milwaukee Brewers have seen their farm system improve quite a bit in recent years, and the system is now brimming with exciting talent. The All Star Futures Game is an opportunity to showcase that talent to the rest of the baseball world.
Last year, top Brewers prospect Jackson Chourio was the youngest player at the Futures Game and he was able to further put himself on everyone's radar with his performance. Joey Wiemer also impressed last year and is making his mark in Milwaukee already.
This year, the Brewers have yet another exciting, talented player leading their representation at the 2023 Futures Game.
Milwaukee's top pitching prospect Jacob Misiorowski is among the Brewers prospects selected to the 2023 All Star Futures Game.
The Brewers selected the 6'7" righty Jacob Misiorowski in the 2nd round of the MLB Draft last year out of Crowder College. Due to his long frame and triple-digit fastball, Misiorowski is incredibly tough to hit and the Brewers were able to snag him for a $2.3MM bonus, the largest signing bonus they gave out in that class.
The selection was instantly praised as one of the best steals of the Draft that year. While a raw talent with a wide variety of potential outcomes, if it all comes together for Misiorowski, there is the upside of a true ace. The Brewers feel they can make that happen and have shown a great ability to develop pitching.
So far, so good on that front with Misiorowski. Through 13 starts this year, Misiorowski has a 2.34 ERA with 66 strikeouts in 42.1 IP. He's allowed just 19 hits all season. He's already been promoted to High-A Wisconsin and was just added to the Top 100 Prospects list.
In the Futures Game, Misiorowski will be able to face some of the top prospects in all of baseball, some with even more experience and currently playing at higher levels than he is. It'll be a tremendous opportunity for development and to showcase his ability.
Joining Misiorowski from the Brewers organization are outfielder Jackson Chourio and catcher Jeferson Quero.
Both Chourio and Quero are playing in Double-A Biloxi this year and are lighting it up, especially Quero. Quero has shown increased power potential and advanced hitting ability as a 20 year old. He's hitting .265 with 10 homers and a .813 OPS this year while Chourio is hitting .252 with 10 homers, 21 stolen bases, and a .724 OPS.
Chourio is not only the consensus top prospect in the Brewers organization, he's a consensus top three prospect in all of baseball. It should come as no surprise that he's named to the Futures Game once again.
Quero is one of the top two-way catching prospects in all of baseball. His defensive prowess and ability to throw out baserunners make him a starting quality big league catcher. Combining that with his rare offensive talent at the position, able to hit for both average and power, makes him a potential All Star and an obvious choice for the Futures Game.
