The calendar has finally turned over to 2017, meaning that the Major League Baseball offseason is now roughly halfway complete. Only another five weeks until pitchers and catchers report!

Our local nine has been only modestly active this winter, especially in comparison to last, though it can be argued that Slingin’ David Stearns has already completed most of the heavy lifting regarding the great Milwaukee Brewers Rebuild. While cutting swaths through the major league roster, Stearns (and his predecessor Doug Melvin) has left in his wake one of the top minor league systems in the game as rated by just about any outlet there is.

Now it’s your turn to parse through Milwaukee’s top prospects and vote for where you think they stack up in the rejuvenated farm system. You’ll be given guidance from the top prospect lists that have already been released, and once outlets like Fangraphs, MLB Pipeline, and Minor League Ball update their lists for 2017, those will be included, too.

Yesterday, you all selected Luis Ortiz as Milwaukee’s #4 prospect by a narrow margin. Today, he has been removed from the list and Phil Bickford has been added as we’ll vote for top prospect #5:
