I am now working on the Baltimore Orioles Top 20 prospects list for 2017. The next team line is the Milwaukee Brewers, to be followed by the Detroit Tigers, Colorado Rockies, Los Angeles Angels, Miami Marlins, Toronto Blue Jays, the Cincinnati Reds, the Seattle Mariners, and finally the San Diego Padres.
Use this thread to discuss the Milwaukee Brewers organization. Possible points for discussion include, but are certainly not limited to:
****The rebuilding Brewers finished at 73-89 in 2016, fourth place in the National League Central division. What is a realistic expectation for 2017? 75 wins? 80? Or do they get to .500 or better?
****Rookie Zach Davies won 11 games with a 3.97 ERA and a sharp 135/38 K/BB in 163 innings. Can he improve on that, or are similar seasons the best that can be expected from him going forward?
****Shortstop Orlando Arcia hit just .219/.273/.358 in 216 at-bats. How long will it take for his hitting to catch up with his defense?
****How good will Domingo Santana be when he's 28 years old?
****What's your timeline for Lewis Brinson? How fast do you push him?
****Josh Hader: starter or reliever?
****As always, feel free to share your prospect sleepers or discuss anything else Brewers-oriented.
