8. Cooper Pratt - SS

The Brewers made it their mission to sign shortstop Cooper Pratt away from his college commitment when they drafted him in the sixth round last summer. They were successful and it's already looking like a match made in heaven.

Pratt is getting his first taste of affiliated ball with Carolina in 2024 and is already giving pitchers fits. He is slashing an impressive .291/.398/.397 with six doubles, two triples, and two homers while also stealing 13 bases in 14 attempts, all at just 19 years old.

9. Yophery Rodriguez - OF

The prize of the 2022-23 international signing class, outfielder Yophery Rodriguez is also in Carolina for the first time in his career and is even younger than Pratt at 18 years old. And like his teammate, Rodriguez has been a terror at the plate.

The youngster has slashed .265/.361/.444 in 51 games with plenty of extra base hits - 11 doubles, six triples, and four homers. His doubles and triples, as well as his 35 RBIs, all lead the Mudcats for the season. As if the future of the Brewers outfield wasn't bright enough.

10. Eric Brown Jr. - SS

The Brewers' first-round pick back in 2022, shortstop Eric Brown Jr. has been hit with nagging injuries throughout his minor league career but has still managed to make it up to the Double-A level. Unfortunately, 2024 hasn't been going his way at all.

Brown Jr. has slashed a lowly .156/.229/.214 in 40 games and has six doubles to go with a lone home run. He has continued to provide stellar defense at both the shortstop and second base positions, but that will only matter so much if he doesn't figure out what's ailing him at the plate.
