Which position player prospects are expected to play?

The 19-year-old Chourio, whose eight-year, $82 million extension signed this offseason was the largest ever signed by a player prior to his MLB debut, fronts a loaded Brewers club that features two other position players among MLB Pipeline’s Top 100 prospects – catcher Jeferson Quero (No. 35) and third baseman Tyler Black (No. 46). Chourio, a five-tool talent vying for an Opening Day spot in the Brewers’ lineup, is ranked No. 2 in MLB. The Brewers’ full roster can be found here.

Blake Mitchell, the Royals’ No. 1 prospect and the No. 8 overall pick in the 2023 Draft, is one of three highly regarded young catchers on the Royals’ roster. Carter Jensen (No. 11) and Ramon Ramirez (No. 15) will also be suiting up for this squad. No. 3 prospect Cayden Wallace, a third baseman, is another name to watch, and 2023 Draft picks Carson Roccaforte (No. 17) and Trevor Werner (No. 20) are in tow. The Royals’ full roster can be found here.

Which pitching prospects are expected to play?

Yet another Top 100 prospect, right-hander Jacob Misiorowski (No. 33), is on the Brewers’ roster, so we could see his triple-digit heat. Also keep an eye out for righties Josh Knoth (Milwaukee's No. 13 prospect) and Logan Henderson (No. 17).

Three of the pitchers Royals taken by the Royals in the 2023 Draft -- right-hander Blake Wolters (No. 7), lefty Hunter Owen (No. 23) and righty Hiro Wyatt (No. 26) -- could have the opportunity to shine on this stage. Right-hander Will Klein (No. 19), who is on the 40-man roster, is another name to watch on the pitching side of the roster.

Why are certain top prospects not listed on the rosters?

If you don’t see a top prospect on your favorite team’s roster, it is likely because they fall into one of two categories. They are either still in big league camp and battling for a roster spot, or the player is injured or has an injury concern.
