Milwaukee Brewers: Top Prospect To Watch In 2023

Sal Frelick,
one of the top prospects for the Milwaukee Brewers, is one of the most exciting young players to watch this season.

Of course, Jackson Chourio is the Brewers' most exciting prospect, however, Frelick would figure to be closer to making his major-league debut than Chourio at the moment, hence why he was chosen for this article.

Despite failing to make the Opening Day roster, Frelick has been turning heads with his impressive performances during spring training, and his potential as a game-changing player cannot be ignored.

Frelick's performance in the 2022 season showcased his immense potential, as he slashed an impressive .331/.403/.480 across three levels, including Triple-A Nashville, with 11 home runs, 59 RBIs, 24 stolen bases and 90 runs scored across 119 games.

His ability to make consistent contact and his speed on the basepaths make him a valuable asset to any team.

He continued to impress during spring training, batting .385 with three stolen bases, three runs, a double and two RBIs, while also showing his range and defensive skills in the outfield.

The Brewers recognize Frelick's potential as a star player, and he remains one of the team's top prospects. He's likely to make his MLB debut this season.

General manager Matt Arnold describes Frelick as a player with an "enormous ceiling" who generates excitement. In addition, Brewers manager Craig Counsell remains optimistic about Frelick's future and believes that he has what it takes to force his way onto the team.

Frelick's performance has caught the attention of baseball insiders, who have ranked him among the top prospects in the game.

According to MLB Pipeline, he is the No. 50 prospect in baseball, and Baseball America has him at No. 44. Scouts have been impressed with Frelick's speed, range, and ability to make contact at the plate, and they believe that he has the potential to be an impact player at the major league level.

All in all, Sal Frelick is a player to watch this season.

Despite being reassigned to the minors, his potential as a game-changing player cannot be ignored. With his impressive track record in the minors and his standout performances during spring training, it's only a matter of time before Frelick makes his mark in the majors and solidifies his status as a core player for the Milwaukee Brewers.

Fans and analysts alike will be eagerly watching to see how he performs in the coming months. Photo Credit:  Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports
