    Player Outlook

    Lewis Brinson is one of baseball's elite athletes, listed at 6-foot-3 and 195 pounds and with a running style that has been described as "gliding through the outfield." The 22-year-old was having a down year at Double-A Frisco before the Rangers traded him to Milwaukee as the centerpiece of the Jonathan Lucroy deal, as he mustered just a .237/.280/.431 line in 77 games, but he did show growth in his power production with 11 home runs and 31 total extra-base hits in that span. Brinson's good speed and quality arm make him an obvious choice to be Milwaukee's center fielder of the future. The bigger question will be if he can make enough contact to be an impact player at the plate as well. He has struck out 546 times in just 469 minor league games, and he'll need to make some adjustments to a fairly long swing if he wants to hit for average in the show.

    • Brewers' Lewis Brinson: Sent to minors camp
      By RotoWire Staff

      Brinson was optioned to minor league camp Friday. Milwaukee's top prospect will spend more time at Triple-A Colorado Springs, a hitter-friendly park which could embellish his numbers. Still, Brinson's proven tools could see him climb into the Brewers' lineup sometime later this season, although a promotion may take months if the front office prioritizes avoiding Super 2 arbitration status for him. It's likely he'll wind up as one of the most coveted in-season free-agent pickups this season, if there's any playing time up for grabs.

    • Brewers' Lewis Brinson: Impressing this spring
      By RotoWire Staff

      Brinson went 1-for-3 with a home run in a spring game with the Brewers on Wednesday. Brinson has impressed this spring, homering twice in an unofficial game at the beginning of camp and posting an .850 OPS through eight official contests with the big club. He is the Brewers' top hitting prospect, but there is not a spot for him to receive everyday at-bats at the major-league level just yet, so he will almost certainly open the season with Triple-A Colorado Springs barring an injury to one of the Brewers' top three outfielders.

    • Brinson was added to Milwaukee's 40-man roster Friday. It comes as no surprise that the Brewers opted to protect Brinson, as he quickly became the stacked organization's top prospect shortly after arriving in a trade from the Rangers. The 22-year-old toolshed impressed during his first stint at Triple-A last season, and although he strikes out a lot, his upside will likely land him a spot patrolling the outfield at Miller Park at some point in 2017.

    • Brinson (hamstring) was activated from the DL at Triple-A Colorado Springs on Tuesday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. The toolsy young outfielder picked up right where he left off with Colorado Springs before suffering the hamstring strain (18-for-46, .391 average), smacking a home run on the second pitch he saw Tuesday night. It was his 13th homer on the year and second since coming over from Texas in the Jonathan Lucroy trade. A September call-up doesn't seem completely out of the question if Brinson can finish strong over the next two weeks although he's not on the 40-man roster.

    • Brinson was placed on the 7-day disabled list Monday with a left hamstring strain that isn't considered serious, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Fortunately, it sounds as though the issue isn't overly serious, but the recently-acquired prospect will sit out for at least a week to rest it. Brinson has prospered since being traded to the Brewers' organization and joining Triple-A Colorado Springs, batting .391/.375/.543 with a home run and four stolen bases.
