NL Central Top 10 Prospects 6. Mat Gamel - 3B - Milwaukee Brewers Positives - Gamel has the ability to hit for a good average due to his ability to use the entire field and his power. He will also draw his share of walks. Negatives - Despite improving his defense in 2008 Gamel still committed 32 errors. His value is going to likely always come from his bat. 7. Alcides Escobar - SS - Milwaukee Brewers Positives - Defensively Escobar can make a claim that he is one of the best in the minors at shortstop. Offensively he makes a lot of contact which might result in a solid average in the big leagues. He also has good speed. Negatives - Escobar doesn’t have much power right now and he doesn’t project to have much in the future, which will limit his offensive abilities both in average and slugging. His value is going to be made on the defensive side of the baseball. There are also other league preview articles that glance at other Brewers prospects. I know its a little bit of self promotion as I write for the site, but not all articles were written by me. If the Mods have an issue with this, please email me.
