Brew Crew Ball Community Top Prospects Vote: #6

New, comments

Rounding out the top five was 21-year-old lefty Josh Hader. Who will kick off the second half of the top ten?

Good morning! First of all, I want to welcome back all the football fans who aren't interested in basketball this year since the Bucks and Badgers are both ... well, they're struggling. If you're just joining us, we're on week two of the voting of your top Brewers prospects. Over the weekend, you selected LHP Josh Hader as the No. 5 young player in the organization.

Joining the voting today are a couple of players on opposite ends of the prospect spectrum. Zack Davies, who broke into the big leagues last season, isn't necessarily a high-ceiling guy but he's already shown he can do it in the majors. Demi Orimoloye, who turned 19 last month, has the raw tools to be a game changer but is still many years away from contributing at the major league level. Your list so far:

1. SS Orlando Arcia 11.
2. OF Brett Phillips 12.
3. RHP Jorge Lopez 13.
4. OF Trent Clark 14.
5. LHP Josh Hader 15. Ps & Cs Report!
6. ??? 16.
7. 17.
8. 18.
9. 19.
10. 20.

Again, if you need a little guidance, here are the organizational lists that have been released up to this point. Our list will of course supersede all of them as the definitive Brewers prospects ranking once complete:

Minor League Ball
Baseball America
Baseball Prospectus: 1-1011-20

Voting will be live until the following day (or Monday, for polls posted on Friday) at noon for each poll in this countdown. If at any point there's a player you would have voted for and think others would as well, just let me know in the comments.

Note: The organizational top 30 from MLB Pipeline has not yet been updated for 2016. The organizational rankings below are implied by each players' ranking on the overall list, which was released Friday.
