The Brewers made another addition to their 60-man player pool on Saturday, adding RHP Alec Bettinger to the pool. Bettinger has been in the Brewers system since 2017, drafted in the tenth round of the 2017 MLB Draft out of the University of Virginia. He has steadily advanced through the Brewers system, starting in Helena in 2017, then split the 2018 season between Wisconsin and Carolina. Last season, he spent the full year in Biloxi. In 2019, he made 26 starts over 146.1 innings, posting a 3.44 ERA. He also posted a 9.7 K/9 rate and had 157 strikeouts compared to 35 walks.

Over on FanGraphs, Eric Longenhagen has Alec Bettinger at #14 in his list of the Brewers Top 35 prospects. MLB.com ranks him at #27 in their top 30. Bettinger will report to the alternate training site in Appleton for now and get some work in there. His addition puts the 60-man player pool at 58.
