Brewers Recall Six Prospects From Double-A Biloxi


This is a big day for the future of the Milwaukee Brewers.

Following the hiring of David Stearns as the team’s new general manager yesterday, the Brewers double-a team, the Biloxi Shuckers season came to an end, and while the players didn’t like how their season ended, six of them will be getting the opportunity of a lifetime.

Out of the six called up, starting pitcher Jorge Lopez is the biggest. Lopez was voted the Brewers minor league pitcher of the year, and he ranks 8th among the Brewers top prospects according to

Pitcher Tyler Wagner, who made his Major League debut with the Brewers already this year, is also among the call-ups, ranked as the 15th best. Outfielder Michael Reed and infielder Yadiel Rivera check in at 17 and 18 on the list, and Adrian Houser, one of 4 players acquired by the Brewers in the Carlos Gomez Mike Fiers trade checks in at 27.

There is no clear information as to much how these guys play, but it’s likely they’ll receive some playing time with the Brewers having injuries to Ryan Braun, Shane Peterson, Khris Davis, Elian Herrera, Jimmy Nelson, and Jonathan Lucroy.

To make room for the six players on the active roster, pitchers Michael Blazek and Jimmy Nelson were placed on the 60-day disabled list.

Orlando Arcia, who is the top Brewers prospect, was not among the call-ups as the team will likely start the young phenom in Triple-A Colorado Springs next season, and will likely call him up sometime during the 2016 season.
