Here's the Brewers' Spring Breakout roster

March 15th, 2024

The Brewers will have one of the most loaded teams in the Spring Breakout showcase.

Led by MLB's No. 2 overall prospect, 19-year-old outfield phenom , Milwaukee's roster for the upcoming showcase is stacked on both the hitting and pitching side.

So it's only fitting that the Brewers play the Spring Breakout's grand finale for the Cactus League: Sunday, March 17, against the Royals at 3:05 p.m. CT at Surprise Stadium.

"I know it’s going to be something exciting and fun, and we’re going to get to enjoy it the most we can," Chourio said. "Playing with those future stars makes me really happy. To have the opportunity to talk to them more and get to know each other better is good."

The Brewers will have four of their five Top 100 prospects participating in the Spring Breakout game: Chourio, right-hander (No. 33), catcher (No. 35) and third baseman (No. 46).

"I am really excited for the game that is coming up," Quero said. "I am going to play my best and cherish that experience."

Chourio will be one of the marquee players of the entire Spring Breakout competition. MLB's Big Three top prospects are all participating: No. 1 prospect Jackson Holliday, Chourio and No. 3 prospect Paul Skenes.

Chourio's finally starting to heat up at Spring Training, too, and it couldn't come at a better time: leading into the Spring Breakout showcase, and potentially, Opening Day.

Starting with Chourio, Milwaukee has seven of its top 10 prospects on the Spring Breakout roster and 20 of the team's Top 30 for 2024.

Milwaukee manager Pat Murphy is excited for the game.

"I hope it goes well," Murphy said. "I hope they get a lot of people there."

The Brewers' last four first-round Draft picks who are still prospects will all be on the team: third baseman (the No. 18 overall pick in 2023), right-hander Josh Knoth (also picked in 2023 at No. 33 overall), shortstop Eric Brown Jr. (No. 27 overall in 2022) and Black (No. 33 overall in 2021).

Of that group, Wilken especially has been tearing it up this spring -- the 21-year-old slugger is batting .714 (5-for-7) in Cactus League play and has reached base in nine of his 11 plate appearances.

There are five ranked pitchers on the Spring Breakout roster as well. The hurlers will be headlined by Misiorowski, the No. 5 right-handed pitching prospect in baseball.

Misiorowski has already stolen the spotlight at a prospect showcase, introducing the world to his triple-digit heat at last summer's Futures Game.
