BCB Community Prospect Rankings Update

Jeremy Jeffress and Logan Schafer tied for #15 in the BCB Community Prospect Rankings, and instead of doing a runoff, I've decided to allow there to be a tie in the rankings. Because of that, though, there's no vote for #16 today. The super-sized vote for our 17th and final spot will open at 4 pm tomorrow.

Draft Reviews: Milwaukee Brewers

I've been waiting for Hulet to get around to doing the Brewers just so I can see Brent Brewer named as the worst pick of the 2006 draft.

Jeremy Jeffress demoted to Brevard County

Gah. It was necessary, but seeing your top pitching prospect go backwards sucks.

A New Weapon: Brewers' Jeffress adds two-seamer

"Jeffress is challenging himself to evolve from thrower to full-fledged pitcher, with plans to scrap at times the ole No. 1 and instead dust off a two-seamer that he employed occasionally last season. 'I'm probably going to work on that as my out-pitch this year,' Jeffress was saying in spring training. 'I started throwing it last year at Brevard County and then at Huntsville. I think it's pretty good. If you throw it right, it has a tendency to run. I'm just going to let it do its own thing.'"

No Health Issues for Jeffress?

Jason Grey, posting about the AFL for ESPN, has this to say about Jeffress: "Milwaukee's Jeremy Jeffress reportedly was just suffering from fatigue and not a health issue. Apparently, he just didn't recover from his previous side session very well, and had been moved up a day to get him on schedule to pitch in the Rising Stars showcase tomorrow, so that may have been part of it. For now, there appears to be no long-term concern, and he will be pitching again at the AFL." Even if he was pushed up a day, he was still starting on four days rest. I wonder why he would've had trouble recovering from his last side session. Fire Ted Power?

Arizona Fall League rosters released

Brewers players on the list: Omar Aguilar Mat Gamel Jeremy Jeffress Alex Periard Angel Salome David Welch Brae Wright You'll notice the absence of Michael Brantley, which is strange considering his agent said he was going to be on the team. I don't know if that's related to the epic ongoing Sabathia PTBNL saga or what.

Hopefully someone tips him off on how to spell Errecart's name by then.

Rotoworld's midseason Top 150 Prospects list

15. Mat Gamel "Gamel has the stick of a top-10 prospect, but with anything more than batting gloves on his hands, he scarcely resembles a major leaguer. Especially now that LaPorta is gone, the Brewers have good reason to try him in the outfield. While he's a fair enough athlete, there's simply no way he's making it at third base. Gamel's bat should be ready during the first half of next year, assuming that it isn't already. The left-handed hitter makes an awful lot of hard contact and could settle in as a 25-homer guy. He's hit .398 against lefties this year, so it doesn't appear that he'll need to be platooned. The Brewers probably won't be willing to move Corey Hart to center field to make room for him, but he could be the first player called on in the event of an injury next year." 26. Alcides Escobar 80. Angel Salome 102. Jeremy Jeffress 131. Taylor Green Jonathan Lucroy wouldn't have been out of place late on the list. Matt LaPorta was #5, Jake Arrieta #69, and Will Inman #70. UW-Stevens Point alumnus Jordan Zimmerman (Nats) was #64.

Gamel, Jeffress, and Lucroy make the BA Hot Sheet

No.'s 11, 12, and 13, respectively. Gamel: "With a .373/.438/.631 batting line this season, Gamel is making a strong push for our Minor League Player of the Year honors. He's a tremendous hitter, with the ability to hit for average, hit for power and get on base at a good clip. Gamel, a lefthanded hitter, struggled yesterday against changeups from a righthander, but otherwise showed a patient approach and drove the ball with ease. His actions in the field aren't fluid—he made three errors in the last seven days, giving him 22 on the year—which dings his value whether he stays at third base or has to move to the outfield. But with his hitting ability, Gamel will soon force his way into a big league lineup." Jeffress: "Jeffress has one of the best fastballs in the minors, as the Florida State League has found out in recent weeks. What Jeffress needs to do now is improve his consistency. He's allowed one or fewer runs in five of his eight starts, but he's also put up three duds—giving up 20 earned runs in 11 2/3 innings. He's been making progress in that regard, going 2-1, 2.45 in June. His control has been especially impressive, as he's now struck out 56 batters and walked just 15 in 41 2/3 innings." Lucroy: "Lucroy has been knocking on the door of the Hot Sheet for several weeks now, but has been denied because his performance was more worthy of the "Men Among Boys" category, since he was 22 in low Class A. He has since moved up to high Class A, where he has continued his assault on pitchers. Four of his nine hits this week were for extra bases and his minor league totals are now .310/.382/.522 with 12 home runs in 268 at-bats."
