Feliciano was added to the Brewers' 40-man roster Friday. Feliciano spent the 2020 season on the Brewers' 60-man roster, but he failed to make his major-league debut. He'll now be protected from the upcoming Rule 5 draft, and he should begin the 2021 season at the Double-A or Triple-A level.
Feliciano was added to Milwaukee's 60-man player pool Thursday, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports. Feliciano is one of a handful of prospects headed to Milwaukee's alternate training site, where players will be able to get field time and coaching while the minors are shut down. The backstop spent most of the 2019 season with High-A Carolina, slashing .273/.324/.477 with 19 home runs in 116 games.
Feliciano was reassigned to minor league camp Monday. Feliciano is one of the Brewers' better prospects, so the club gave him a chance to see a few at-bats with the major-league team this spring. He fared well in limited action, going 4-for-12 (.333) with two doubles, five RBI and a 1:2 BB:K. It remains to be seen which affiliate he will open the season with, but it will be a pivotal year for Feliciano's prospect status, as last season's Carolina League MVP last could really give his stock a boost with another productive campaign.
Feliciano was promoted from High-A Carolina to Double-A Biloxi on Sunday. Feliciano had a .273/.324/.477 slash line with 25 doubles, 19 homers and 81 RBI in 81 games to earn MVP honors in the Carolina League. One of the Brewers' top prospects, the 20-year-old is rewarded for his impressive campaign with the late-season promotion to Biloxi, where he's likely to begin the 2020 season.
Feliciano has gone 15-for-42 (.357) with four home runs, three doubles, nine RBI and a 4:12 BB:K over his last 11 games with High-A Carolina. It's been a big year in the power department for Feliciano, who is now up to 19 long balls, three triples and 22 doubles over 110 games. Feliciano currently leads the Carolina League in home runs, RBI (78), slugging percentage (.477) and total bases (198), and his .802 OPS slots in fourth.
