It's that time of year once again. MLB Pipeline, one of the most popular prospect ranking websites, has released their preseason list of the top 100 prospects in all of baseball for the 2024 season.

It wasn't that long ago that the Milwaukee Brewers were lucky to have just one of their prospects make this yearly list. But the organization has significantly improved lately and placed multiple players on the list in recent seasons.

To start the 2024 season, the Brewers find four of their prospects among the top 100 in all of baseball. Let's take a look at exactly where on the list that quartet landed.

Here are the four Brewers prospects who landed on MLB Pipeline's preseason Top 100 MLB prospects list for 2024.

No. 2 OF Jackson Chourio

The only question was whether Brewers phenom Jackson Chourio would be named the best or second best prospect in all of baseball by MLB Pipeline. Ultimately, he starts the year as runner up to another impressive prospect in Orioles shortstop Jackson Holliday.

Chourio, just 19 years old, brought himself right to the cusp of the majors last year as he topped out at Triple-A. His incredible numbers for a teenager (.286/.347/.490, 47 HR, 68 SB in 272 career minor league games) earned him a stunning eight-year contract from Milwaukee before he's even played his first Major League game. That first game could end up being Opening Day, the first of many Brewers fans will end up seeing him play.

33. RHP Jacob Misiorowski

The top pitcher in the Brewers organization, 2022 2nd round pick Jacob Misiorowski, just barely lands in the top third of the list at No. 33. His rise up the Top 100 list is just as impressive as his rise through Milwaukee's organization in his first full professional season in 2023.

Misiorowski made it all the way up to Double-A last year, combining for 20 starts across three levels and going 4-2 with a 3.41 ERA, miniscule .169 batting average against, and 13.88 K/9. A group of MLB execs recently voted him best future closer among 2024 prospects, but with his arsenal he has the potential do dominate as either a starter or a reliever.

35. C Jeferson Quero

The Brewers acquired their catcher of the future when they traded for William Contreras last offseason. Their other catcher of the future should be soon to join him, however, and he comes in the form of No. 35 MLB prospect Jeferson Quero.

Quero, an elite defensive catcher, has decent offensive numbers for a player of his position as well with a career .278 average and .794 OPS with 39 doubles and 28 homers in 208 career minor league games. Had an injury not limited him to 90 games at Double-A last year, he likely would've finished the season at Triple-A and even had a chance to crack the Opening Day lineup in 2024. Either way, it might not be long before he's sharing backstop duties with Contreras.

46. 3B/1B Tyler Black

Third baseman Tyler Black rounds out the members of the Brewers prospects in the top 100, managing to crack the top 50 at No. 46. His stay may be short lived as well as he may find himself in the big leagues early this season.

Black, who was just drafted in 2021, played at both the Double-A and Triple-A levels in 2023 and actually performed slightly better at the latter location, combining to slash .284/.417/.513 in 123 total games with 105 runs scored and a whopping 55 steals. With the Brewers' third base position being far from settled, he should get as good a chance as any to win the starting job out of spring training.

To have four prospects among the top 50, let alone 100, prospects in all of baseball says so much about the state of the Brewers' system. It'll be even better, though, when these prospects graduate into major leaguers.
