Brewers MiLB Top Performers August 1-7 | Disciples of Uecker

Disciples of Uecker

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


It’s been a while, but the Brewers Minor League Top Performers is finally back! This week, we’re looking at August 1-7. This is a week that saw two debuts from the prospects brought over in the Jonathan Lucroy trade and a top Brewers prospect who keeps pushing himself up the rankings.

Isan Diaz: .400/.600/.840, 2 HR, 5 RBI, 7 R
Wisconsin Timber Rattlers
Diaz is quickly establishing himself as a premiere bat in the Brewers system. This week, over half of his hits went for extra bases. There’s just not much this kid has left to prove at A-ball. That being said, the Brewers may choose to let Diaz finish out the season in Wisconsin since Brevard County is a black hole of offense.

Lewis Brinson

Lewis Brinson: .480/.480/.760 ,HR, 8 RBI, 5 R
Colorado Springs Sky Sox
If you were one of the people upset that the Brewers acquired Lewis Brinson, he’s made every effort to shut you up quick. Brinson has a hit in every game he’s played in the Brewers org and started that tenure off with a great 4-4 performance. I’m really excited about Brinson and am hoping I can include him in this many more times throughout the remainder of the season.

Taylor Jungmann: 12 IP, 0 ER, 9 H, 4 BB, 14 K
Biloxi Shuckers
Jungmann has had a really, really weird season, but it looks like he’s finally getting time to figure it out at Biloxi. The big righty has a 2.60 ERA in his time at AA — which an experienced pitcher probably should be able to accomplish — but it looks like he’s finally starting to turn his earlier problems around. Jungmann is seeing his walk numbers dropping. Hopefully this is an improvement Jungmann can bring to the big leagues, and he’ll soon be ready to be a contributor in the rotation again.

Brent Suter: 14.2 IP, 0 ER, 10 H, 7 K
Colorado Springs Sky Sox
Suter is a pitcher who’s taken a while to get on some people’s radars but is really having a great season. The most shocking part of his season is that it’s all been at Colorado Springs, renowned for ruining pitchers. Over his last ten games, Suter has a 0.87 ERA in 41.1 IP. If you’re watching for someone on the edge of the rotation, Suter could be it.

Honorary Mention:
He didn’t do enough to really justify being on the list, but in his first Brewers start Luis Ortiz pitched 3 scoreless innings, working around a hit, a walk and striking out 3. It’s a great start for someone who will hopefully be a big contributor to this organization for many years.
