Brewers: Ranking The 10 Most Important Young Players To The Brewers Future
By David Gasper
#8: INF Luis Urias
Luis Urias is still 25 years old for a few more weeks so he barely qualifies for this list. Yet, he remains an important piece for the organization. This is despite missing the first two months with an injury and missing a chunk of last year with an early season injury.
While Urias was demoted from the starting shortstop job, he's largely been an everyday player for Milwaukee since. He's spent most of his time at third base along with some time at second base, handling the transition quite well. Urias has tapped into his power in recent years, which gives him a real chance to lock down third base going forward.
Urias is under team control through the 2025 season. He could be a long-term piece in this Brewers infield, wherever he can fit in. Willy Adames has shortstop locked down for as long as he's still in Milwaukee. He's also unlikely to sign an extension given the lack of progress in talks over the offseason. Urias is a cheaper alternative to keep around in the infield for the future.
The Brewers have had a revolving door at third base over the years and Urias can finally give them stability at that position. They're also lacking any legit prospects at the hot corner in the minor leagues, making the success of Urias all the more vital to Milwaukee's future.
