Lewis Brinson, whom Milwaukee acquired from the Texas Rangers last year, is on the doorstep of the big leagues. He’s currently ranked as the team’s top prospect and enjoyed some success in Triple-A Colorado Springs last year hitting .382 in 23 games, after coming over from the Rangers in the Lucroy trade.
Brinson has all the tools, but it just took him some time to put them all together. Drafted in the first round in 2012, Brinson was very raw. Five years later, hes finally proving that there isn’t much of anything he can’t do on a ball field.
The 22-year-old has a rare combination of speed and power. He has amazing abilities on the basepaths, which translates well to tracking down balls in center field. But Brinson also has a nice, quick swing at the plate and has shown the ability to hit for average and power. If the outfielder produces in Colorado Springs like he did last year, expect to see him in the big leagues at some point in 2017.
