Future Watch: Lewis Brinson Rookie Baseball Cards, Brewers Lewis Brinson was drafted by the Texas Rangers with the 29th overall pick in the 2012 MLB Amateur Draft. In August of 2016 he was traded to the Milwaukee Brewers as a part of a deal that sent catcher Jonathan Lucroy to Texas.

Drafted straight out of Coral Springs High School in Coral Springs Florida, he’s been compiling minor league at-bats since he was drafted. In 2012, he played for the Arizona League Rangers hitting seven homers and 42 RBI with a .283 average.

The next season he slugged 21 home runs and drove in 52 in A ball for the Hickory Crawdads.

He really arrived in 2015 while playing for three teams going as high as AAA. That season combined he hit 20 homers, driving in 69 with 31 doubles and a .332 batting average.

Since being traded, he played a lot for the Colorado Springs Sky Sox in the Pacific Coast League. In 76 games, he hit .331 with 13 homers, 48 RBI, 11 steals and 22 doubles.

According to his MLB.com draft profile: http://m.mlb.com/prospects/2016?list=ari

Brinson has smoothed out his right-handed swing, learned to recognize pitches and improved his approach since signing. His numbers have dipped as he dealt with a shoulder strain in 2016, but he should hit for a solid average with plenty of pop. Few players in the Minors can match Brinson’s combination of power and speed, and he could be a 30-30 player if he continues to refine his skills and can avoid the leg injuries that slowed him at times the past two years.

Here’s a look at his first big league home run:

At 23, Brinson got into 21 games with the Brewers. He hit a few home runs in 47 at-bats getting his feet wet. Next year could be his year.
