With the offseason in full swing, along with the cold winter months among us, let's go back to the warmer better days when baseball was on every day, by taking a look at the Brewers top 30 prospects and how they fared for the 2022 season.
There were a lot of prospects that made significant jumps, significant dips, and major league debuts, and for that let's dive deeper.
2022 Brewers Prospect Season In Review #1 - Jackson Chourio - OF
Chourio quickly became the fan favorite in the farm system as he burst onto the scene this year. He started his 2022 campaign in Single-A Carolina with the Mudcats where he appeared in 62 games. In those 62 games, Chourio batted an insane .324/.354/.644. It was almost like he was playing MLB the Show's "Road to the Show" on beginner as he smashed 12 home runs, 23 doubles, and five triples. As well as sneaking 10 stolen bags in there.
By the time the High-A all-star break rolled around in mid-July, Chourio got the call that he was promoted to the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers. Though his batting average took a bit of a dive, he continued to make it look easy in his short 31-game stint, as he hit six doubles and eight long balls.
For the final week of the season, Chourio found himself in Double-A with the Biloxi Shuckers where in just 26 plate appearances, he got on base via a hit twice, one of them being a double. Overall it was a successful season for Chourio, jumping from the #16 Brewers prospect at the end of the 2021 season to the #1 prospect in the organization. He was also elected to the 2022 Futures game and won the Robin Yount Performance Award which is awarded to the Crew's best Minor League hitter.
