Jerseys can be gateways. And in the Minor Leagues, there’s plenty to explore. The kit can represent the town, a favorite food, the local culture, an important issue. And with longer affiliation partnerships, more teams have used them to connect with their parent clubs. Not to mention, they’re nice to

@MavalloneMiLB
August 31, 2023

Only Jackson Chourio and his optician know for sure, but it appears MLB Pipeline's No. 2 overall prospect has perfect 20/20 vision. Although it will take a flourish to eclipse last year's record 27 20-homer, 20-stolen base campaigns, Chourio is certainly doing his part. The top-ranked Brewers prospect joined the

Top Brewers prospect launches two-run homer, has 76 RBIs
August 24, 2023

For most of the season, Jackson Chourio had been the youngest player at Double-A.

The Brewers knew when they plucked Jacob Misiorowski in the second round and gave him the biggest bonus in their 2022 Draft class, that the upside junior college righty had the potential to dominate. Now, a little more than a year since his drafting, Misiorowski is already at Double-A Biloxi
