We are now well into the year 2020, however, it seems like “list season” for the Milwaukee Brewers has come later than in year’s past. But now that we have several published top prospect lists to draw from, it is time to take stock of the farm system with the annual Brew Crew Community Top Prospects voting!

Now heading into the fourth year of this competitive cycle, Milwaukee’s farm system does not compare well to the rest of the league according to the national outlets after myriad trades and graduations. The organization is low on potential impact players at the upper levels, and while there are several promising prospects down lower in the minors, they remain young and early in their development timeline, meaning that there is a lot of risk involved in projecting their futures.

Now it’s your turn to parse through Milwaukee’s top prospects and vote for where you think they stack up in what some consider to be the league’s worst farm system. You’ll be given guidance from the top prospect lists that have already been released, and once outlets like MLB Pipeline and Fangraphs update their lists for 2020, those will be included, too.

Yesterday, Joe Gray was chosen as the org’s #18 prospect. He has been removed from the list as balloting begins for top prospect #19. Voting will continue through the weekend:
