Milwaukee Brewers 60-Man Roster Prospect Analysis

The Brewers included their Nos. 9 and 10 prospects, righthanders Drew Rasmussen and Zack Brown, in their initial player pool. Neither pitcher has made his big league debut, but each has the stuff to contribute at some point this summer. Rasmussen in particular has a fastball-slider combo that would work well out of the bullpen. Milwaukee also took No. 15 prospect Devin Williams, a 2019 Futures Game participant, to round out its group of three Top 30 prospects.
The Brewers did not include any of their top eight prospects from their most recent Top 30 Prospects list. That includes Corey Ray, who ranked No. 3, and is on the team's 40-man roster. It's also somewhat surprising to see neither Mario Feliciano nor Payton Henry on the list, simply because there's always a need for more catchers, and those two are among the system's brightest prospects.
Aside from Rasmussen, Brown and a handful of others, the Brewers mostly stuck to their 40-man roster. They used just 45 spots, however, leaving room for 15 more players who could conceivably report to the team's alternate training site.
