Player Notes
One of three Brewers players to debut this week, Brinson is a multi-faceted talent who has power and speed, hits to all fields, has a strong arm and has upped his game when it comes to cutting down on his strikeouts and hitting for average. Originally drafted in the first round of 2012 out of Coral Springs (Coral Springs, FL) by the Rangers, he posted a 20-20 line in his first full season, 2013, when he hit .237 with 21 home runs and 24 stolen bases at Hickory (Class A). In 2016, though he missed a month with a shoulder injury, he combined to bat .268 with 15 home runs, 61 RBIs and 17 stolen bases with a .468 SLG between the Arizona League (where he rehabbed the shoulder), Frisco (Double-A) and Colorado Springs (post-trade). He'd hit a combined .332 with 20 home runs, 69 RBIs and 18 stolen bases along with 31 doubles, eight triples and a .601 SLG in 2015 between High Desert (High A), Frisco and Round Rock (Triple-A) in his best season to-date.
