2017 FANTASY BASEBALL WELCOME TO THE SHOW: LEWIS BRINSON OUTFIELDER MILWAUKEE BREWERS

The Milwaukee Brewers were very busy with roster maneuverings on Saturday as they placed struggling infielder Jonathan Villar on the 10-day DL with a back injury and used the open roster spot to call up top outfield prospect Lewis Brinson to make his debut.  Rated as the number 13 prospect in all of baseball, Brinson wast he primary piece the Brewers got in the Jonathan Lucroy trade last summer and needless to say, he has some massive potential as a future five category star.  Already we have seen those skills being put to work at Triple-A where Brinson batted .312 with 6 home runs and 25 RBI on the season prior to his promotion.  Brinson also showcased some good speed in picking up 6 stolen bases as well.  The former 2012 first round pick is still very young at the age of 24 and again the tools are there for Brinson to be a big-time player before too long.  Of course there will be an adjustment period and Brinson does have to iron out some things before he can realize his full potential.  Specifically, Brinson needs to get to work on his lack of plate discipline as he is prone to striking out (22.1 K/9 at Triple-A which is high for a minor league level) and he seems allergic to walks at times.  If Brinson can get those issues remedied even a bit, the power/speed game will make quite an impact.  So if Brinson is available anywhere, be sure to pick him up right away.  He is more likely to be a story for 2018 but Brinson looks like he is going places at a rapid pace.
