"until a starting position open up"
So, in what, three years when Ramirez' contract is up?
Scooter Gennett, Brewers: As an undersized overachiever, the 5-foot-9, 164-pound Gennett not only knows he has to prove himself at every level, he seems to thrive on it. All he's done is hit through his pro career -- batting for average, showing more pop than one would expect and proving to be a solid baserunner. A former shortstop, Gennett's better suited for second base and continues to learn the position. After a very strong Arizona Fall League showing, he's ready to move up to Double-A and prove doubters wrong once again.
Ranked #8 2nd Basemen Prospect by MLB
MLB.com came out with with their top 100 prospects today.
Wily Peralta is #49, Jed Bradley is #97.
Brewers system was ranked 28th overall this year. Still got a ways to go after gutting it the past few years. Also, Jungmann didn't throw at all, he could shoot up the ranks once he starts playing.
Unfortunately, with Jack Z went our depth. Seid has been a little unlucky (like with Covey), but also has grabbed a lot of college players without very high ceilings.
This past draft could kind of make or break him, since it was a pretty talented one. Need a couple impact guys to emerge in this system, and hopefully Jungmann or Bradley turn out to be that guy.
