Baseball America Releases Top 20 PCL Prospects List for 2013

...and no Brewers were included. Shockingly.

Baseball America released its top 20 Pacific Coast League prospect rankings for the 2013 season on its website Tuesday morning, and to the surprise of many, no Milwaukee Brewers prospects were included.

Among the handful of Brewers prospects who figured to have at least an outside shot at cracking the site's list included right-handed starter Johnny Hellweg, who took home the Pacific Coast League's pitcher of the year award for his 3.15 ERA and 1.82 ground-out-to-fly-out ratio that ranked fourth-best among starters with at least 100 innings.

Hunter Morris also figured to garner some consideration for the list, posting a .247/.310/.457 line with 24 home runs and 73 runs batted in over 134 games with the Brewers' triple-A Nashville affiliate this season. Of course, his strikeout rate (22.3%) has never been higher than it was in 2013, and his slugging percentage dipped over 100 points from where it was last season (.563).

One could argue that Khris Davis' .255/.349/.473 line and 13 home runs over 69 games with the Nashville club warranted consideration for the list, as well, but the creator(s) of the list did not see it as many Brewers fans would have liked.

Brewers 2012 supplemental first-round draft pick Mitch Haniger is off to a fast start in the Arizona Fall League, going 10-for-20 in his first five games while leading the league with 16 total bases as of Tuesday morning. Baseball America's Josh Norris uploaded an insightful video of Haniger taking batting practice in Arizona in his article this morning.
