Here are the 25 Top Brewers Prospects for the 2023 season.
5. SS Brice Turang
Yet another first rounder graces the top five with 2018 21st overall pick Brice Turang. He has spent the last four years in the system proving he is ready for an MLB roster spot by posting a career .269 average and .363 OBP with two seasons of 30+ steals across all levels of the organization while also providing stellar defense.
The Brewers seemingly solidified his eventual MLB debut by adding him to the 40-man roster last fall in order to protect him from the rule 5 draft. The Crew has a bunch of utility players to fill the now vacant second base position caused by Kolten Wong's trade to Seattle. Turang will get his chance to battle for it in spring training, but even if he doesn't win it early, he'll see the field for the team at some point in 2023.
6. C Jeferson Quero
The Brewers traded for their catcher of the future in William Contreras this offseason. Eventually joining him some day could be prospect Jeferson Quero, who at his young age is already showing all the makings of a solid future major league backstop.
Quero has already put up good offensive numbers for a catcher, batting .290 with a .806 OPS in 118 minor league games that have seen him top out at High-A so far. It's his defense that will carry him the rest of the way, though. He drew rave reviews even before he made it to affiliated ball about his ability to handle a pitching staff and he threw out a whopping 46% of attempted base stealers in Arizona Fall League in 2022.
7. 2B/OF Tyler Black
2021 Competitive Balance A pick Tyler Black was another in a group of players drafted by the Brewers for their ability to hit and get on base. That was exactly what he was doing at High-A Wisconsin last season, hitting .281 with a .406 OBP in 64 games before a wrist injury suffered on a diving play in the outfield ended his season.
Black took part in Arizona Fall League after his injury healed and came back from a slow start to hit .279 with a .413 OBP in 17 games. His ability to hit and get on base as well as play both infield and outfield bode well for his future MLB prospects, especially for a team like Milwaukee who love positional versatility.
