The 2024 season is in full swing, not only for the Milwaukee Brewers but for all of the organization's minor league teams as well. And just like in 2023, this system is among the deepest in all of Major League Baseball.

Because of that, it's also likely to be another year full of Brewers prospects winning minor league player of the week awards. Here, we'll celebrate each and every one of those award winners and recap the strong weeks that led to their honors.

Here is every Brewers player to win a minor league player of the week award in 2024.

Week 3 - SS Gregory Barrios, High-A Wisconsin Timber Rattlers

The second full slate of affiliated minor league games (the Triple-A season started a week before everyone else) gave the Brewers their first MiLB POTW of the year with the honor going to No. 21 prospect (per MLB Pipeline) Gregory Barrios. The shortstop went a whopping 13-for-18 with six doubles and eight RBIs in five games against the Cedar Rapids Kernels.

Week 4 - OF Isaac Collins, Triple-A Nashville Sounds; RHP Jacob Misiorowski, Double-A Biloxi; OF Eduarqui Fernandez, Timber Rattlers

It was nearly a clean sweep of the top four affiliates featuring a POTW winner in week 4, with only Low-A Carolina missing the party. The first honoree was Isaac Collins of the Sounds who went 9-for-22 with three homers, six walks, and seven runs scored in the team's series against the Louisville Bats.

Top Brewers prospect Jacob Misiorowski, unsurprisingly to some, snagged himself a POTW award as well, the second time in his career he's earned the honor in the Southern League specifically as he did it once in 2023. This time, it was because he dominated the Pensacola Blue Wahoos twice in the same week, giving up a run on just a hit and two walks while striking out 13 over eight innings.

Rounding out the trio was Wisconsin outfielder Eduarqui Fernandez, the second Timber Rattler in two weeks to be honored. In six games, the former top 30 prospect went 11-for-21 with four doubles, two homers, and five RBIs in a series win over the Peoria Chiefs.

Week 5 - OF Carlos D. Rodriguez, Shuckers; 2B Daniel Guilarte, Low-A Carolina Mudcats

It would take just one more week for Carolina to join the POTW club with infielder Daniel Guilarte being the man to get the job done. The No. 19 Brewers prospect had a 1.302 OPS in week five that included three extra base hits and three stolen bases as well.

Joining Guilarte was outfielder Carlos D. Rodriguez of the Shuckers. In five games, Rodriguez ended up going 12-for-19 with a double and a triple. He tallied multiple hits in three of his five games that week.

Week 7 - SS Luiyin Alastre, Arizona Complex League Brewers

One of Milwaukee's rookie league teams got into the POTW fun in week seven as 2022-23 international signee Luiyin Alastre had himself a week. The shortstop had two doubles, two triples, and a homer on his way to a 1.370 OPS for the week. He also managed to swipe three bags.

Week 8 - SS Filippo Di Turi, ACL Brewers

Make that two weeks in a row for a rookie league POTW with No. 29 Brewers prospect Filippo Di Turi winning it this time. He had an even higher 1.511 OPS for the week that included a trio of extra base hits. Two weeks later, he would be promoted to Carolina.

Week 11 - RHP K.C. Hunt, Timber Rattlers

After a two-week POTW drought, the Brewers system got back on the board with Wisconsin's K.C. Hunt. The righty was excellent in a win over the West Michigan Whitecaps in which he gave up just a hit and a walk over six scoreless innings, striking out eight. It was one of many great performances in an exciting week for Wisconsin as they became the first Brewers minor league team to clinch a playoff spot in 2024.

Week 12 - RHP Jacob Misiorowski, Shuckers

Guess who! That's right, Misiorowski earned his third career player of the week award in the Southern League alone in week 12 on the back of a performance against the Rocket City Trash Pandas in which he went six scoreless and gave up just a single hit and no walks while striking out five.
