Milwaukee Brewers: Ranking the 25 Top Prospects of 2023
Here are the 25 Top Brewers Prospects for the 2023 season.
8. LHP Robert Gasser
Now the only piece remaining from the infamous Josh Hader trade at last year's deadline, Robert Gasser has already become the top ranked pitching prospect in the Brewers organization. And it may not be that long before fans see him in the big leagues.
The Brewers gave the 23-year-old his first taste of Double-A and Triple-A after the trade to see what they had and the results weren't bad with a combined 3.47 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, and 11 strikeouts per nine innings over nine starts. MLB Pipeline grades his fastball, slider, and changeup all as above average pitches, which will hopefully help land him in the Crew's starting rotation some day.
9. RHP Jacob Misiorowski
Our first of two 2022 draftees in a row is actually the Brewers' second round pick in pitcher Jacob Misiorowski. Following in the footsteps of Aaron Ashby by way of Crowder College, prospect lists are seeing a ton of potential in the 6'7" southpaw.
Misiorowski has a 70-grade fastball that touches 100 mph and a solid slider, a great repertoire for a future high leverage reliever, though it hasn't been officially decided what his future role will be. He only got to pitch a quick 1.2 innings with Low-A Carolina after being drafted last year, so that's likely where he'll begin 2023 as well unless Milwaukee pushes him up a level just due to his potential.
10. SS Eric Brown Jr.
Brewers fans love infielders with funky batting stances (Hello, Craig Counsell) and they got another one of those with the team's 2022 first rounder, shortstop Eric Brown Jr. And despite all the noise in his stance and swing, all he has done is hit and get on base in his college and brief pro career.
Brown Jr. had a .306/.431/.501 slash line in three years at Coastal Carolina, then went and slashed .262/.370/.441 while going 15-for-17 in stolen bases across 23 games with Low-A Carolina. He is an above average defender as well, giving the organization more depth at shortstop, which they seem to love. It will be interesting going forward to see if the team tries to adjust his pre-swing setup or let him continue to roll with what's worked for him.
