Milwaukee Brewers Top 30 Prospects To Target In Dynasty Leagues

Moving right along in the NL Central this week we are diving into a stacked Milwaukee Brewers farm system that almost has a household name )for prospect hound households at least) at every spot in their top 30. The Brew Crew boasts a top-five hitter and pitcher in all of the minor leagues in Jackson Chourio and Jacob Misiorowski. This list of Brewers prospects only goes 30 deep, but make no mistake, there are plenty of hidden gems beyond. For now, let us dive into the top 10 and rank out the top 30 for the Milwaukee Brewers.

Top 10 Brewer Prospects

Jackson Chourio, OF

(128 GP, .283/.338/.467, 22 HR, 91 RBI, 44 SB)

Hopefully, by the time this article hits, the “potential” 8-year 80 million dollar contract will be finalized for Jackson Chourio making him one of the most intriguing prospects to watch in 2024. To be clear Jackson Chourio was a must-watch prospect before the contract talks as the 19-year-old slashed .283/.338/.467 with 22 home runs, 91 RBIs, and 44 stolen bases in 2023 en route to his second hitting prospect of the year award.

Since 2021 Jackson Chourio has done nothing but hit and exceed expectations. Throughout his minor league career, Chourio has maintained a solid walk rate as well as limited the strikeout rates as he climbed up the organization ladder ultimately finishing the season in Triple-A.

With an MLB contract, Chourio would most likely break camp with the Brewers in 2024 and profiles to be a Ronald Acuna style of player coming off his most recent 22 home run, 44 stolen base season.

Jacob Misiorowski, RHP

(20 GS, 71.1 IP, 110 K, 3.41 ERA)

One of the most exciting arms to watch in the minor leagues this season has to be Jacob Misiorowski. Across 20 starts in 2023, Misiorowski ascended to Double-A Biloxi, putting up massive strikeouts per nines along his way. Starting in Low-A Carolina Misiorowski struck out 46 batters in 26.2 innings, for a 15.53 K/9 while keeping batters to a .115 average and finishing with a 3.04 ERA in nine starts. After a dominant start, the Brewers moved Misiorowski up to High-A where he struck out 28 batters in 23.2 innings pitched while having a .172 average against and finished with a 1.90 ERA across six starts.

The numbers in Double-A Biloxi left a bit to be desired as the right-hander finished the season with a 15.43 K/9 and a 5.57 ERA across 21 innings and five starts. Control has been a concern for Misiorowski so far in his minor league career. In his last stop of the year, Misiorowski had a 6.86 BB/9 and was hit for a .213 average. The upside is massive with Misiorowski as he could be a front-of-the-rotation type of arm but the walks will need to come down if that will come to fruition.

Tyler Black, 2B

(123 GP, .284/.417/.513, 18 HR, 73 RBI, 105 R, 55 SB)

If Jackson Chourio has been on a rocket up the Brewers system, Tyler Black has been holding on to the back of it. After a solid 2022 season where Tyler Black played the entire season in High-A slashing .281/.406/.424 with four home runs and 13 stolen bases, it seems Tyler Black has outdone himself. This season Black ascended two levels, starting in Double-A where he slashed .273/.411/.513 with 14 home runs, 70 runs scored, and 47 stolen bases in 84 games. Black continued to show excellent plate discipline, walking 15.8% of the time while only striking out 20% in 385 plate appearances.

Once promoted to Triple-A Nashville, Black went off for a .310/.428/.514 slash line with four home runs, 35 runs scored, 25 RBIs, and eight stolen bases in 39 games. The walk percentage remained high at 15.6% and the strikeout rate came down to a stellar 13.3% across 173 plate appearances. Tyler Black might be pushing for an opportunity to be the Brewer’s everyday second base option at some point in 2024 and my prediction is that it might be sooner rather than later.

Brock Wilken, 3B

(47 GP, .285/.414/.473, 5 HR, 27 R, 29 RBI, 4 SB)

2023 was a big season for Brock Wilken leading Wake Forest to Omaha before falling to a powerful LSU team. Wilken played in 66 games with the Demon Deacons in 2023 slashing .345/.506/.807 with 31 HR, 90 runs scored, 82 RBIs, and one stolen base. After being selected by the Brewers in the first round Brock Wilken started climbing the organizational ladder beginning in the complex ball before moving to High-A. Once in High-A Wilken slashed .289/.427/.438 with 2 home runs, 21 runs scored, 15 RBIs, and 3 stolen bases in 34 games.

The 21-year-old Wilken showed excellent plate discipline in High-A, walking 18% while only striking out 21.3% of the time. Milwaukee promoted Wilken to finish the season in Double-A for six games but it was clear the long season took its toll on Wilken as he hit just .217/.280/.565. Long term this is an easy 30-plus home run bat with solid OBP numbers coming from either third base or first base.

Garrett Mitchell, OF

(19 GP, .246/.315/.446, 3 HR, 7 RBI, 1 SB)

Last season did not play out the way Garrett Mitchell or the Brewers would have hoped after the 25-year-old went down with a left Shoulder Subluxation on April 19. Prior to the injury, Mitchell was slashing .246/.315/.446 with three home runs, 10 runs scored, and one stolen base in 19 games. Mitchell played the final three games of the season 9/28-10/01 only getting one hit and one RBI to finish the season. Regardless of last season, there is a big upside with Garrett Mitchell as an advanced bat that has above-average power and plus speed as a center fielder.

Robert Gasser, LHP

(26 GP, 25 GS, 135.1 IP, 166 K, 3.79 ERA)

The Brewers organization has thrived on pitcher development, both with players selected in the draft and acquired via trade. The Brewers acquired Gasser in a trade with San Diego in 2022. This season was solid for the 24-year-old Gasser, who finished the season with an 11.04 K/9 across 26 appearances (25 Starts) in Triple-A Nashville. What was more impressive to me was Gasser getting control of the walks toward the last two months of the season and bringing the BB/9 down to 3.33.

Across 135.1 innings pitched Gasser kept batters to a .233 Average while finishing the season with a 3.79 ERA. Gasser features a four-pitch mix of a four-seam fastball, change-up, plus slider, and an above-average curveball. Typically Gasser finds success by pinpointing his low 90’s fastball and relying on swing and miss outside of the zone with a horizontal sweeping slider.

Carlos F. Rodriguez, RHP

(26 GS, 128.1 IP, 158 K, 2.88 ERA)

If Jacob Misiorowski had one of the best pitching performances of 2023 in the Brewers organization, I argue Carlos F. Rodriguez is close behind. The 22-year-old Rodriguez pitched most of the year in Double-A Biloxi where he had an 11.06 K/9 across 123.2 innings. Rodriguez had a .181 average against and finished Double-A with a solid 2.77 ERA over 25 starts.

With a four-pitch mix, Carlos F. Rodriguez projects to be a starter long-term. With Rodriguez’s high strikeout rates on his plus change-up and sweeping slider, it is easy to see why he is skyrocketing up dynasty rankings.

Jeferson Quero, C

(90 GP, .262/.339/.440, 16 HR, 49 RBI, 5 SB)

This is one of the top catching prospects in the minor leagues and for good reason. Jeferson Quero put together solid numbers in Double-A Biloxi, slashing .262/.339/.440 with 16 home runs, 49 RBIs, and five stolen bases across 90 games. Quero showed an advanced approach at the plate walking 10% while only striking out 17.8% of the time. I believe this might be the best time to buy “Low” on Jeferson Quero despite the solid numbers. His BABIP indicates his numbers could have been even better. Make Jeferson Quero a target in 12-team dynasty leagues and up as a solid catching option long term.

Luke Adams, 3B

(99 GP, .233/.400/.401, 11 HR, 74 R, 54 RBI, 30 SB)

If you are looking for deep league targets with big upside check out Luke Adams. The 19-year-old Adams put together a solid season in Low-A in 2023 with the best numbers coming in June and July. Across 22 games in June Adams slashed .274/.436/.425 with two home runs, 15 runs scored, seven RBIs, and swiped six bases. Adams followed that up with a .310/.500/.500 slash line in 18 games played in July. Sadly the final 26 games played between August and September were not kind to Adams as he slashed just .207/.305/.354 in 21 games played in August.

Despite the ups and downs of the season, Luke Adams had a solid plate approach walking 17.3% of the time while only striking out 22.5% in 440 plate appearances this season. Luke Adams did a good job hitting the ball to all fields and could be poised for a solid 2024 season if he can elevate the ball more. This is a solid target in deeper dynasty leagues 12 teams and up.

Logan Henderson, RHP

(18 GS, 78.2 IP, 106 K, 2.72 ERA)

One of my favorite “under the radar” arms in the Brewers system has to be Logan Henderson. Taken in the fourth round of the 2021 MLB draft Henderson took a solid step forward in 2023 starting the season in Low-A with the Carolina Mudcats. In 18 starts Henderson had a 12.13 K/9 while maintaining a solid 2.97 BB/9 across 78.2 innings pitched. The 21-year-old right-hander kept batters to a .183 average and finished the season with a solid 2.72 ERA.

The keys to Logan Henderson’s success so far have been the command and control of his three pitches in his low to mid 90’s fastball, plus change-up and a sweeping slider. The latter is a work in progress and has more movement down than you would like to see in a slider. If Henderson can refine the slider as he moves up the levels this could be a solid back-end rotational arm and worse case a solid back-end of a bullpen arm.

    Thanks Richard, I love this reports. I may be a little to heavy on this team, but I have CF Chourio on my best team.
    I plan to hit second behind my real CF Harris II. On my rebuilding team I have RHP Misiorowski and C Queros, who is very similar to my current C Moreno, a great defensive C and puts up good offensive numbers. I also hope to land 3B/1B Black who I hope opens the season in Milwaukee and 3B Wilkens. I love those big bats with high OBP and reasonable Ks. Thanks again.

    1. Richard Haake says

      Appreciate it Jose! This was a fun system to write about and dive into. The future is very bright for the names that you listed off and some of the deeper prospects that did not make the top 30. It sounds like you are assembling a solid team with Chourio and Harris II. Enjoy the rest of the system breakdowns to come!
