Team to watch
The outfield situation is growing ever-crowded in the Milwaukee pipeline, and the Double-A Biloxi group looks particularly loaded to begin 2022. Expect 2020 first-rounder Garrett Mitchell to get the majority of looks in center field, but last year’s breakout star Joey Wiemer and 70-grade speedster Korry Howell should rotate through that position as well. Freddy Zamora, Felix Valerio and Gabe Holt bring some impressive hit tools to the infield mix, while Abner Uribe -- he of the triple-digit heat -- skips right over High-A to join the Double-A bullpen.

New faces
Each of Milwaukee’s top three picks from the 2021 Draft (Sal Frelick, Tyler Black, Russell Smith) open their first full seasons close to their future Major League home at High-A Wisconsin.

On the shelf
Fellow 2021 pick Logan Henderson (fourth round) underwent non-Tommy John elbow surgery on March 17. He is expected to pitch in games later this season, according to the Brewers.
