Brewers Prospect Props

From CNNSI - Baseball's Top 100 Prospects.

31. Matt LaPorta, OF, Brewers: The best college hitter in last year's draft, the Brewers are taking a risk by trying to teach him how to play left field, but all he needs to do is become adequate there, because at the plate, he's a monster.

42. Manny Parra, LHP, Brewers: Always loaded with promise despite a propensity to spend long periods of time on the disabled list, Parra finally stayed healthy enough to reach the big leagues last year and cement a bid to join Milwaukee's Opening Day rotation.

76. Jeremy Jeffress, RHP, Brewers: A million-dollar arm handicapped by off-field issues. Jeffress can hit 100 mph with his fastball, and would rank much higher on this list if not for the multiple positive tests for marijuana.

Time to restock the system. Still waiting for the starting pitcher trade.

With Yo hurt, that trade might not happen until the all-star break now.....
