2017 FANTASY BASEBALL STATUS REPORT: LEWIS BRINSON BACK FOR ANOTHER TRY

Remember that Mike Trout didn't exactly light the world on fire during his first go-round in the majors and certainly neither did top Milwaukee Brewers and Major League Baseball outfield prospect Lewis Brinson either.  In 14 games with the Brewers earlier in the year, Brinson signaled he needed a bit more seasoning as he hit just .097 with 13 strikeouts.  However Brinson got that seasoning and so now the Brewers have called him up a second time in order to hopefully give the sagging team a boost for the stretch run of the 2017.  In revisiting he profile here, Brinson is as good a pure athlete and "toolsy" player as one can get.  He runs like the wind, has tremendous bat speed, and power that suggest he will hit 30 bombs one day.  The former 2012 first round pick has hit a scorching .345 with 10 home runs and 11 steals at Triple-A this season and has shown the approach to the dish that should make this go-around in the major much smoother.  As much as Brinson struck out in his first stint, he has a very solid 18.9 K/9 rate at Triple-A and an even more tidy 10.1 B/9 number.  If Brinson can bring those rates to the majors, look out.  Scan all your league waiver wires and see if anyone stupidly dropped Brinson as he could really out himself on the map the rest of the way.
