Wednesday Morning Coffee: Lopez, Instructs, Top 15

The Brewers provided a late night special in San Diego, offering the MLB debut of Jorge Lopez on a (strangely timed?) trip to the west coast. Lopez flashed his fastball into the mid-90s, and equally selected his change and trademark curve to keep the Brewers… [More]

Meet Jorge Lopez

The Brewers promoted a gang of prospects from their successful AA Biloxi Shuckers club, a team that thrived on breakthroughs and competed through an improbable roadtrip on their way to the AA championship series. Although the Shuckers lost the series in five games, there is… [More]

30 Farmhands #8: Prospect Narratives

While working on ranking Brewers prospects, a number of difficult and intriguing issues appear. First and foremost, the convergence of lower-minor or Brewers-homegrown prospects that are advancing, and supremely advanced external acquisitions leads to a difficult set of wagers about the system’s value. The Brewers… [More]

Personal List: Brewers Midseason Top 15 Prospects

Of course, to prospect newcomers, there could be no better Brewers farm system to follow: prior to… [More]

Friday Morning Coffee: Scouting Barrios & More

Yesterday, the Brewers traded veteran third baseman Aramis Ramirez to the Pittsburgh Pirates for Yhonathan Barrios. While Barrios was not ranked by some nationwide prospect news sources, Pirates Prospects did rank the young flamethrower in their Top 50 for 2015. Barrios is an especially intriguing… [More]

30 Farmhands #6: 2015 Minor League Stars

Since it’s the All-Star Break, it’s a great time to reflect on the state of the organization and prepare for the sprint of the official (if not mathematical) second half. Unfortunately for our Brewers, their recent stretch of solid play is too little, too late,… [More]

Can the Brewers win in 2016?

If you’ve followed the Brewers throughout 2015, there have been few moments of press clarity from the front office. Granted, in the past, President & GM Doug Melvin has been tight-lipped about potential club moves, so a lack of a loud “Players For Sale” sign… [More]

Taylor Jungmann’s Fastball

After his excellent debut, Taylor Jungmann earned his first “tough loss” of the season, as Max Scherzer, the Washington Nationals big-contract ace, nearly no-hit the Brewers. Jungmann hardly pitched poorly, however, and managed to get himself out of trouble a couple of times. Unfortunately, the… [More]
