It was a wonderful way to end the night.

Brewers are chasing the Padres. Padres have 17 games left, Brewers 18. For Brewers to make the playoffs, they have to gain some ground.

SIDE NOTE: Why aren't Mitchell's stats showing?

New York Post:

MILWAUKEE — The Yankees’ four-game winning streak ended with a thud Friday night in a 7-6 loss to the Brewers, as they blew an early five-run lead before Garrett Mitchell’s two-out RBI single up the middle off Clay Holmes in the bottom of the ninth gave Milwaukee the victory.

Hunter Renfroe led off the ninth with a double, Kolten Wong hit a grounder that sent him to third and Andrew McCutchen walked.

Holmes struck out Jace Peterson before walking Victor Caratini to load the bases and bring up Mitchell.

Leading off BP's top 10 prospects on the Brewers:

  • 1.
  • Garrett Mitchell
  • OF
  • Born: 1998-09-04
  • B: Left
  • T: Right
  • H: 6′ 3″
  • W: 215 lbs.
  • Drafted 20th overall in the 2020 draft, UCLA; signed for $3,242,900

The Report: Mitchell was drafted in the first round as a toolsy, high-upside college bat whose plus raw power was limited by a line-drive, contact oriented swing. He dominated High-A, flashing a bit more game power, but flailed after a promotion to the former Southern League. There was also a knee injury in the midst of all that, but there did not seem to be much in the way of lingering effects. We don’t have a ton more information on Mitchell than we had this time last year. The 70 speed and potential plus defense in center field gives him a reasonable major league floor. The hit tool is probably at least average, which would bump that reasonable floor to good fourth outfielder or fringe starter. Unlocking even 15-20 home run power will get Mitchell to the OFP below, but there’s no evidence that’s coming down the pipeline quite yet.

OFP: 55 / Above-average outfielder
Variance: High. There’s some concern about Mitchell staying healthy in the long term, as he has a bit of a history of leg injuries now. That’s most of the negative side of the variance—although we aren’t sure the hit tool will play at higher levels either. On the positive side, his contact ability, approach, and raw pop sure fits the profile of a prospect that can make real power gains with a swing tweak or two. —Jeffrey Paternostro

Major league ETA: 2023

Darius Austin’s Fantasy Take: There’s still a five-category fantasy stalwart in here. We just haven’t seen the advancements we might hope for to get him there in the power department, and the Double-A stint didn’t provide a ton of confidence that the hit tool will translate either. He could still have a path to fantasy relevance in all leagues with the speed, but he won’t have a real-life starting spot without both the power and the average. It could be a great moment to buy in; he’ll rocket back up dynasty rankings if he starts out hot next year.
