Prospect of the Day:  OF Brock Kjeldgaard (Double-A Huntsville)

It was an encouraging weekend for some of the Brewers’ top pitching prospects, as Tyler Thornburg continues to turn it around on the mound and Taylor Jungmann finally put together an outing with solid strikeout numbers. The standout performer, though, was outfielder Brock Kjeldgaard — thanks to his two home run performance against Tennessee on May 24. He added another homer on Monday, which now gives him nine on the season.

Kjeldgaard looks the part of a slugger. He’s 6-foot-5 and 235 pounds, and he looks all of that standing at the plate. He has raw power — as shown by the fact that he’s never finished a professional season without double-digit home runs — but his contact skills continue to lag behind. Once again, he’s struggling to make consistent contact. He has 58 strikeouts in only 50 games, which is the main reason his batting average sits at .257.

The power is phenomenal and makes Brock Kjeldgaard one of the more fun prospects to follow in the minor-league system. Until he can improve his hit tool enough to let the power play — he was woefully exposed in big league camp in 2012 — he profiles as a minor-league slugger who will anchor Double-A and Triple-A teams for the next half decade.

    I know Mitch Haniger just got to Brevard County, but I foresee a trip to Huntsville in 2013.

  2. Where is Sixto? says: May 28, 2013

    I hate the fact that over the course of the whole weekend we get to talk about a great performance by Brock Kjeldgaard. A guy that will probably never see a mlb roster. Yeah, we got a great farm system.
