Luis Sardinas, who is a infield prospect, has drawn comparisons defensive wise towards current Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus.
Cory Knebel, a 23 year-old former first round pick by the Tigers, was taken in the 2013 draft.
The last prospect the Brewers received is Marcos Diplan. Diplan, who is 18 years of age, pitched at the Rangers Class-A minor league team last season went 7-2 with a 1.54 earned run average with 57 strikeouts and no walks.
