The calendar has finally turned over to 2018, meaning that the Major League Baseball offseason is now roughly halfway complete. Only another three weeks until pitchers and catchers report!

Our local nine has been only modestly active this winter, especially in comparison to the previous two offseasons under Slingin’ David Stearns. The rebuild is complete, so the Brewers are no longer in the mode of trading established major league players for prospects. We have also started to see many of the prospects acquired in the last three seasons by either Stearns or his predecessor Doug Melvin come up and start making an impact at the MLB level. Still, Milwaukee possesses an enviable collection of minor league talent and one of the best farm systems in baseball.

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 MLB Pipeline and Minor League Ball update their lists for 2018, those will be included, too.

Over the weekend, Trent Grisham was selected as Milwaukee’s #14 prospect. Today, he has been removed from the list and Phil Bickford has been added as we’ll vote for top prospect #14 through the weekend:
