Three Under-the-Radar Prospects to Watch During Spring Training

March 1st, 2023

Welcome back, Spring Training!

The Brewers are back in action down in Phoenix, Arizona, with plenty of storylines to keep track of the regular season begins.

With expanded rosters and plenty of opportunities to go around, Spring Training offers the chance to get an up-close look at fresh faces throughout the entire farm system.

Here’s a look at three under-the-radar prospects to keep an eye on during Spring Training.

Jeferson Quero

Entering Spring Training at just 20-years-old, Jeferson Quero has made waves in the Brewers Farm System since signing in 2019.

The Venezuelan catcher earned a non-roster invite to Spring Training this year after he raked at the Single-A and High-A levels last season.

In his first action of spring, the Brewers No. 6 prospect picked up where he left off: Quero notched an RBI double in a 10-4 win over the Royals this past week.

Add his above-average defense and strong track record at the dish, and you’ve got an exciting young prospect to monitor as Spring Training continues.

Cam Robinson

Cam Robinson earned himself a spot among the Brewers top-30 prospects after a strong 2022 season, and now he’ll look to follow it up.

The 23-year-old right hander dominated competition across High-A and Double-A in 2022 before making it all the way to Triple-A Nashville by the season’s end – thanks in part to a substantial boost in velocity. In the process, he compiled an impressive 2.49 ERA and 25 saves.

As a member of the Brewers 40-man roster, Robinson is knocking at the Big League door. He will be a fascinating watch this spring, as he could make a splash as a reliever at the Major League level as soon as this season.

Robert Gasser

The Brewers acquired Gasser, a southpaw pitcher, at last season’s trade deadline. Now, many fans will finally get their first looks at the No. 10 prospect in the Brewers organization.

Gasser split the latter-part of his 2022 campaign between Double-A Biloxi and Triple-A Nashville after being acquired from the Padres, compiling a 3.47 ERA and 57 strikeouts in 46.1 innings.

Now, he looks to translate last season’s performance into success as a part of Major League camp this spring. In his first Cactus League appearance, the lefty rang up two Rockies batters on his way to a scoreless inning.

Along with Cam Robinson, Gasser could see time in the Majors as early as this season. Watch out for his sweeping slider, and maybe even an MLB debut in 2023.
