For the first time in a long time, a Brewer was featured on the Baseball America Hot Sheet
|No. 12 BRETT LAWRIE, 2B||BREWERS
|Team: low Class A Wisconsin (Midwest)/Double-A Huntsville (Southern)
Why He's Here: .417/.440/.750 (10-for-24), 2 HR, 2 2B, 5 RBIs, 7 R, 0 BB, 2 SO, 1-for-2 SB
The Scoop: Lawrie showed steady improvement over his last three months in low Class A and was hitting an even .300/.333/.457 in 70 August at-bats. He'd homered twice in his last four games there and was up to 13 on the season, a solid total for a teenager in the challenging Midwest League. That was enough for the Brewers to decide to skip him over high Class A and promote him straight to Double-A, where he made his debut for Huntsville Tuesday. He's gone 2-for-7 in his first two games with the Stars, but just getting that far is impressive enough for someone so young who'd never played a professional game before 2009.
