Chourio has had another strong season in the Brewers organization, hitting .280/.336/.467 with 22 homers, 89 RBIs, and 43 stolen bases in 122 games with the Shuckers. Across three seasons in the organization, Chourio has hit .285/.346/.490 with 47 homers, 189 RBIs, and 67 stolen bases in 266 games.
At just 19 years old, Chourio has a real shot at making it to the majors in his age 20 season next year.
Rodriguez, a 2021 sixth-round pick, has also impressed with the Shuckers this season, pitching to a 2.77 ERA with 152 strikeouts across 123 2⁄3 innings (25 starts) in his age 22 season.
Myers was a sixth-round pick by the Orioles in 2016 and came over to the Brewers as a free agent last offseason. Now 25, Myers finished his season at Double-A with a 5.03 ERA and 168 strikeouts across 137 2⁄3 innings (27 appearances, 26 starts). Despite the high ERA, he’s pitched well in August and September, allowing 19 earned runs and striking out 57 across 45 2⁄3 innings (3.74 ERA).
Meeker was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Delaware in 2021. In three seasons across three levels, Meeker has a 2.57 ERA in 90 games (10 starts) with 159 strikeouts. He pitched in 34 games (eight starts) for the Shuckers this season, finishing with a 3.13 ERA and 80 strikeouts across 89 innings.
