  • Monte Harrison, CF – LoA Wisconsin Timber Rattlers (MIL) – Midwest League/Western 
    • 1-2, HR (5), R, 3RBi, 2BB
    • With #1 prospect Lewis Brinson (MLB Pipeline) leading Brewer headlines by collecting a hit in all nine of his games so far this season (16-39/.410), another story working its way up the Milwaukee ladder is 2014 – 2nd rounder Harrison, who belted his third home run in his last two games. With 12 home runs in his first 204 career games, the speedy 6’3″- 220 lb. righty has tapped into his plus bat speed and already has a Midwest League tying five home runs. It will be interesting to see how Milwaukee sorts out their supremely loaded outfield with Brinson, Harrison, recently resurging Brett Phillips and 2016 – 1st rounder Corey Ray sitting in the fold.

    • The 2014 – 1st rounder overtook the Carolina League lead with his fifth homer of the season. All Chavis’ homers have come within his last four games highlighted by his three-homer performance versus Wisconsin on April 19, which earned him a Top A.L. Hitter of the Day honors.
