Brewers Minor League Rosters Released | Disciples of Uecker

Disciples of Uecker

We'd like to go to the Playoffs, that would be cool.

While the majority of eyeballs are focused on the Brewers’ major-league roster, and understandably so, the Brewers’ minor-league affiliates also released their tentative rosters on Saturday afternoon. The entire rosters are listed below.

But first, I wanted to highlight some of the more intriguing groups of prospects down on the farm.

Best Starting Rotation: Nashville Sounds

Though the Huntsville Sounds should have an exciting rotation once right-hander Nick Bucci returns from his spring shoulder injury, the Triple-A club has a very solid trio of arms headlining their rotation in Johnny Hellweg, Tyler Thornburg and Hiram Burgos to begin the 2013 campaign. All three pitchers experienced dominant stretches last season, while Burgos won Pitcher of the Year in the organization. Additionally, they’re all on the 40-man roster and could eventually see time with the Brewers this season.

Best Bullpen: Nashville Sounds

The Brewers have stockpiled a bevy of arms in Triple-A Nashville this season. Right-hander Michael Olmsted is a personal favorite and should be the Sounds’ closer, but he’s just the tip of the iceberg. Jesus Sanchez and Donovan Hand both impressed this spring and could potentially get their first cup of coffee with the big-league club. There’s also a pair of potential big leaguers to watch in Kyle Heckathorn and Rob Wooten. Not to mention Jim Hoey, Chris Jakubauskas and Zach Kroenke all have major-league experience. There’s just a lot to like about the Triple-A bullpen, especially when one considers the depth it provides the big league club.

Best Infield: Wisconsin Timber Rattlers

Though Triple-A Nashville has a pair of established top prospects in Hunter Morris and Scooter Gennett, Class-A Wisconsin boasts three Top 30 Prospects in their infield, including first-round pick Clint Coulter. The Timber Rattlers will also have one of my favorite prospects, international-signee Orlando Arcia, and second baseman Chris McFarland in the infield. It should be a young, exciting group of talent around the diamond in Appleton.

Best Outfield: Wisconsin Timber Rattlers

This outfield has the opportunity to be absolutely jam-packed with talent. As it stands, Mitch Haniger, Tyrone Taylor and Michael Reed are slated to play outfield for the Timber Rattlers, and all three made our Top 30 Prospects list that came out earlier this month. In addition, though, the Timber Rattlers could add first-round pick Victor Roache, who possesses mammoth raw-power and could be a treat to watch in the Midwest League. If all goes well, Jose Pena could also see time in a T-Rats uniform this season.

    Good Post. However, you are 10 years off on Blake Lalli’s age; he is 29.

    • J.P. Breen says: March 31, 2013

      Thanks for catching the typo. It’s fixed.

  2. Mike S. says: March 31, 2013

    Lookin pretty good, but would have liked to have seen Bradley up in AA after how he looked this spring.

  3. Luke says: March 31, 2013

    There may not be much high ceiling talent in the upper levels of the system, but the depth at nearly every level is amazing.

  4. Burt says: March 31, 2013

    Some interesting aggressive assignments in Wisconsin. The trio of Coulter, Arcia, and Taylor at Wisconsin, along with Jorge Lopez, is outstanding although it seems to be at odds with the typical glacial pace that we tend to move young prospects along at. Taylor I expected and Coulter I hoped for, but Arcia, in particular, is unexpected great news.

    It’s hard to believe Cameron Garfield is only 21.

      Cam is a family favorite. Went to see the T-Rats on my wife’s birthday and they share the same birthday… exactly 20 years younger than her.

  5. desertfool says: March 31, 2013

    Wait… Jason Rogers moved to 1B? Wasn’t he an outfielder?

  6. richie boyce says: April 1, 2013
