Here is how their top-10 list stacks up:2B Keston HiuraOF Tristen LutzRHP Zack BrownOF Corey RaySS Brice TurangIF Mauricio DubonOF Troy StokesOF Joe GrayC Mario Feliciano3B Lucas ErcegHiura, once again, is considered the crown jewel of the system. “Hiura has a nearly perfect swing,” the BP scouts say, and “he could be a perennial .300 hitter with a few 20-home-run seasons mixed in to boot.” BP gives him an OFP grade of 70 - meaning he has the ceiling of a perennial All-Star second baseman - with a “likely” role of 60, or a plus second baseman who is occasionally an All-Star. High praise indeed for the player BP predicts will debut sometime in late 2019.After Hiura, however, the quality of the system starts to drop off quickly. Only one other player, #2 prospect Tristen Lutz, earned an OFP of at least 60, but his distance away from the big leagues makes him a high-risk prospect. Zack Brown is now considered the top pitching prospect on the farm, drawing 55/45 grades (possible #3/4 starter/likely #4-5 starter) and garnering praise for his three advanced offerings and durability on the mound despite some effort in his delivery. Other players earning 55/45 grades were Corey Ray (possible three true outcome masher) and Brice Turang (possible above-average shortstop), though both players were given high grades for risk.Mauricio Dubon earned a 50/45 grade (possible second-division starting infielder/likely a good utility option) and then after him, the top-10 is rounded out by a handful of 50/40 players in Troy Stokes, Joe Gray, Mario Feliciano, and Lucas Erceg. All of these players could be average regulars in the big leagues if everything breaks right, but more likely the holes present in each of their games will be enough to ticket them for some kind of bench role in the future.Only one player was considered interesting enough to make the “others of note” category for the Brewers, and that was 2018 sixth-rounder Drew Rasmussen. As I detailed in a post for BP Milwaukee last summer, Rasmussen was a first-round pick by the Rays in 2017 who failed to sign after his post-draft physical revealed elbow damage that would eventually require Tommy John surgery, the second-such procedure of his collegiate career. He sat out all of his redshirt senior season at Oregon State before falling to Milwaukee in last summer’s draft and didn’t pitch at all after signing with Milwaukee. He figures to be back on the mound sometime in 2019 , however:Though Milwaukee’s top-10 prospect list may be a little short on pitching, their “Top Talents 25 and Under” list is stacked with five exciting arms - Josh Hader (#2), Corbin Burnes (#3), Brandon Woodruff (#5), Freddy Peralta (#7), and Brown (#8). The first four hurlers in that group made significant impacts during the 2018 season and are expected to play major roles for the big league team this coming season, with Brown possibly joining them later in the summer. The only other non-prospect to make the 25-and-under list was Orlando Arcia, ranking #4. BP remains split on what his future might hold, saying “Orlando Arcia remains in a bit of a holding pattern...The bat really needs to return to 2017 form, though, and it’s anyone’s guess on whether that’ll be in the cards. If his feeble 2018 numbers prove to be the norm, he’ll probably get lapped on this list by 2020.” Diamondbacks Affiliates Took Three Out Of Five Games Played TodayDiamondbacks affiliates went three for five on the day, with Reno losing and Jackson splitting the double header.Pitcher Of The DaySam Lewis, Jackson Generals 4.0 scoreless innings pitched, four strike outs, one walk and four hits allowed. Hitter Of The DayAndy Young: 2-2 with home run and a walkReno Aces 3 Fresno Grizzlies 6Vinny Nittoli got the start and was roughed up for six runs, four earned, on seven hits and two walks in just three innings. The four earned runs came via long ball, with a two run homer in the first and third inning, and the unearned runs coming courtesy of errors by Abraham Almonte and Yasmany Tomas. Alex Young followed up with three scoreless inning, allowing just a hit and a walk, while striking out four. Robby Scott pitched an inning and a third scoreless innings Corey Dickerson Jersey , allowing a hit and two walks while striking out two. Rubby De La Rosa would allow a hit in two thirds of a scoreless innings.The Aces only had three hits in the game, with two of them coming courtesy of Kevin Cron, who was 2-4 with a double and knocked in all three of the Aces’ runs in the eighth. Travis Snider had a solid night despite going hitless by drawing three walks in the game. Caleb Joseph also reached twice with a walk and the only other hit of the night. Jackson Generals 1 Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp 2The Generals picked up where they left off in yesterday’s game with a 1-0 lead in the top of the first, but despite runners on base, they weren’t able to score any more runs in the inning, or the rest of the game. Instead of Bo Takahashi, Matt Peacock got the start, and though he was solid in five innings, he still was tagged with the loss due to a lack of run support. Peacock allowed two runs on six hits and a walk and struck out three. Tyler Mark allowed a hit and two walks in two scoreless innings. Bud Jeter replaced Tyler Mark, and pitched a scoreless inning, despite giving up two hits, two walks, and a wild pitch in the eighth inning. thanks to a well timed double play.Pavin Smith was hitless, but walked twice, and scored the lone run of the game in the first. Jeffrey Baez was 2-4, and knocked Smith in the first, while Ben Deluzio had the only other hit of the game.Jackson Generals 2 Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp 0The Generals rebounded with a seven inning shutout, with just enough offense to win it. Sam Lewis went four innings and allowed four hits and a walk, and struck out four. Ryan Atkinson pitched a perfect fifth inning, and struck out one. Kevin Ginkel pitched two scoreless innings, allowing a hit and a walk, while striking out two. Andy Young was 2-2 with a walk and a solo homer to lead off the game yesterday. Jamie Westbrook was 1-3 with an RBI double.Visalia Rawhide 9 San Jose Giants 3Travis Moths got the start Austin Meadows Jersey , and went three and a third innings, giving up one run on three hits and three walks, and struck out five. Cole Bartlett went three and a third innings as well, with three hits, allowed no walks or runs and struck out three. Junior Garcia went two and a third innings, and allowed two runs on three hits and a walk, and struck out four. Visalia’s offense combined for ten hits and five walks, with every Visalia batter getting at least one hit, except for Camden Duzenack who did reach base via walk. Ryan Grotjohn was 2-4 with a double, Anfernee Grier was 2-3 with a double and a walk. Mark Karaviotis and Luis Alejandro Basabe both tripled and walked. Kane County Cougars 4 Clinton Lumberkings 3Franklyn Soriano got the start for the Cougars, and pitched four and a third innings, giving up two runs on three hits. Soriano struggled with his command, issuing four walks and hitting a batter. Ethan Larrison struck out two intwo innings, and allowed a run on a hit and a walk. Chester Pimentel allowed two hits and two walks, while striking out two in two and a third scoreless innings to close out the game. Down 2-0 in the sixth, the Cougars would get a run across the board to make the score 2-1, but an Alex King home run with two on in the eighth is all the offense the Cougars would need to scratch out a win.Geraldo Perdomo went 2-4 with a double, scoring a run and knocking in the Cougars first run of the game. Tra Holmes was 2-3 with a walk and a stolen base. LT Tolbert was 2-3 with a walk.
