Prospect of the Day:  C Cameron Garfield

The Brewers drafted Garfield in the second round of the 2009 MLB Draft. The organization was aggressive with his promotions, sending him to full-season ball at just 19-years-old, where he expectedly struggled to transition to professional pitching. Few were worried, however, as he was merely a teenager and simply needed time to develop and adjust.

Unfortunately, the next two seasons have been marred by injuries, limiting his time on the field and his ability to develop as a baseball player. He only appeared in 15 games in 2011, and Friday evening marked only his fifth game of the 2012 season. It will be interesting to see how he performs the remainder of the season, though the knee/leg injuries have to be concerning to the organization — especially when the player in question is a catcher, who will naturally put significant wear and tear on his lower limbs as it is.

On Friday evening, however, Garfield flashed the ability that pushed him into the second round in 2009. He hit for extra-bases, he drove in runs, he drew two walks, and he did not strike out. It should serve as a confidence boost and something to build upon. A healthy and productive Cameron Garfield would be an unexpected and pleasant gift for the organization.

    It seems that ever since Wily got that sniff of MLB time, he has become the definition of “pressing”, where he may be so convinced that HE is responsible for getting himself back the the Brewers, that he’s doing things he shouldn’t and getting in his own way. I makes me wish they would have either never brought him up, or bullpenned him at the MLB level. Right now he seems to be having head problems.

      Well said. It seemed that he had figured it out last year, when he stopped trying to throw the ball through the backstop in every AB. Then post call up this season, all of a sudden he’s not able to throw strikes. Maybe he needs to take a page from Fiers and trust his stuff more. Hopefully Wily can figure it out in the 2nd half of the minor league season.
