2022 Brewers Prospect Season In Review #4 - Brice Turang - SS/OF
Turang encountered many opportunities for the Brewers to call him up with the flurry of injuries that happened on the big league club this past season. But with that being said, he never got the call. Spending his entire 2022 season with the Sounds, Turang proved to the fans, front office, and himself that he belongs in the big leagues as he finished the year with a .286/.360/.412 slash line.
Turang showed his versatility not only on the field but with the bat as he smashed 13 home runs, and probably his biggest stat number, stole 34 bags on the season. On the opposite side, normally a middle infielder he started to experiment in the outfield playing 14 games in center.
Turang becomes another top prospect for the Brewers that we'll most likely see on the roster either on Opening Day or at some point during the season. His versatility and consistent bat definitely shows that he should be, and with the inconsistency of the Brewers infield, Turang deserves his chance. He was added to the 40 man roster this offseason.
2022 Brewers Prospect Season In Review #5 - Garrett Mitchell - OF
Once the top prospect for the Brewers, falling to the fifth spot, Mitchell had a whirlwind of a season, but one he'll never forget. Starting his season in Double-A, and batting .277/.353/.428, Mitchell quickly showed that he was healthy and belonged at higher levels. With Lorenzo Cain slumping majorly, and occupying the center field spot, the Brewers looked eager to move Mitchell along.
Mitchell got the promotion to Nashville after just 44 games with the Shuckers, where he'd only play 20 games with the Sounds. Once he got there, he made a scene as he got 46 hits in 166 at-bats. After Jonathan Davis got hurt, Mitchell got the call to the big leagues where he became the most consistent hitter on the team, batting .312 in 28 games played to finish the season.
It's almost certain that the center field spot will be his come Opening Day 2023. Mitchell will have a full season to show his worth as well and if it's anything like the sneak peak preview we got in 2022, it'll be exciting.
