A year after top Brewers prospect Jackson Chourio made waves among the Milwaukee Brewers fanbase by earning two promotions in one season, another one of the Crew's prospects has looked similarly impressive and has now accomplished the same feat.

After getting just two games under his belt last year at Low-A Carolina following his selection by the Brewers in the 2nd round of the 2022 MLB Draft, Jacob Misiorowski began the 2023 season at the same minor league level. Nine more starts later, it was off to High-A Wisconsin.

It's now been another six starts for Misiorowski at his next step of affiliated ball and he's arguably looked even better at his new home. Well, make that temporary home because apparently the Brewers saw all they needed to see from him there and the 21-year-old has earned himself another quick promotion.

Top Brewers pitching prospect Jacob Misiorowski has reportedly been promoted to Double-A Biloxi.

The news of Misiorowski's promotion was reported by Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Monday afternoon.

In his first stop this season at High-A Carolina, Misiorowski went 1-1 with a 3.04 ERA and a 0.825 WHIP in nine starts. He also struck out an eye-popping 15.5 batters per nine innings.

Then, upon his promotion to Wisconsin, Misiorowski was even more stingy in preventing runs, putting up a 1.90 ERA over six starts as well as a 1.225 WHIP and 10.6 K/9. Though he is still refining the command, he did increase his innings per outing from 2.96 in Carolina to 3.94 while with Wisconsin.

But what really started opening eyes outside of the organization was Misiorowski's appearance in the MLB Futures Game earlier this month. In that exhibition, the youngster gave up a lucky, weak single while striking out the other three batters he faced. The fastball was also on full display as 10 of his 18 total pitches were thrown over 100 mph.

Now, Misiorowski gets an even bigger challange in the move up to Double-A, where the quality of hitters is a much bigger jump than that from Low-A to High-A. But considering how he looked against some very talented hitters in the MLB Futures Game, there's plenty of reason to believe he will rise to this challenge as well.

If all goes well, Misiorowski will get a couple months to prove himself with Double-A Biloxi. Should he keep impressing at the same level, it's not crazy to think that he will be donning a Brewers uniform as soon as next season, which is a future that Brewers fans would love to dream about.
