Brewers' Tyler Black: Promoted to Triple-A
Milwaukee promoted Black from Double-A Biloxi to Triple-A Nashville on Sunday.
Black earned a trip to the top level of the minors by posting 14 home runs, 47 steals and a .921 OPS over 384 plate appearances with Double-A Biloxi this season. The 23-year-old is one of the top prospects in the Milwaukee system, and he has an outside chance of joining the big club before the campaign comes to a close.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Tyler Black: Continues to impress
Black went 14-for-38 (.368) with two home runs, three doubles, five RBI, 12 stolen bases and a 5:8 BB:K over his last 10 games with Double-A Biloxi.
Black has both gotten on base and swiped bags all season, and through 54 games he has now racked up a whopping 38 steals while being caught only four times. He is starting to pile up hits as well, with four of his nine multi-hit efforts on the year coming since June 11. With his speed and an OPS north of .900, there is a lot to like about Black from a fantasy perspective.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Tyler Black: Dazzling at Double-A
Black has gone 15-for-46 (.326) with three home runs, 12 RBI, 11 stolen bases and a 13:9 BB:K over his last 13 games with Double-A Biloxi.
Black hit just .212 over his first 11 games at the Double-A level, but he has put his power, on-base skills and speed on display all season, and his batting average is starting to follow suit. Given his hot start and the fact he was a first-round pick in 2021, he could find himself moving up prospect rankings when those are re-drawn.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Tyler Black: Looks ready for 2023 season
Black (thumb) has appeared in five Cactus League games to date and has gone 4-for-6 with two doubles, a walk and two RBI while logging 13 innings at third base.
Black's stint in the Arizona Fall League was cut short when he fractured his left thumb while sliding into a base, but he doesn't look to be under any restrictions in spring training. The 22-year-old saw most of his action between second base and the outfield during his time in the minors in 2022, but the Brewers' decision to deploy him exclusively at the hot corner in spring training could be a sign that he'll settle into a regular spot at third base during the upcoming minor-league campaign. Black is expected to begin the year at either High-A Wisconsin or Double-A Biloxi.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Tyler Black: Suffers broken thumb
Black fractured his left thumb sliding into second base Friday while playing in the Arizona Fall League, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
The injury will end Black's Fall League campaign, though he should have time to heal over the offseason and be ready for next year's spring training. He hit .279/.413/.377 in 76 plate appearances in Arizona after slashing .281/.406/.424 in 64 games for High-A Wisconsin.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Tyler Black: Playing in AFL
Black (shoulder) has played in six Arizona Fall League games to date, batting .231 with a 5:9 BB:K and two stolen bases.
Black missed the final two months of the minor-league season with a fractured left scapula, but he's starting to make up for the lost at-bats by taking part in the AFL. The Brewers also plan on giving the 22-year-old exposure to second base, shortstop and center field during his time in Arizona.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Tyler Black: Out for season
Black was diagnosed with a fractured left scapula Tuesday and will miss the rest of the 2022 season, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Black suffered the injury July 10 while making a diving attempt in the field, and it will bring his campaign with High-A Wisconsin to an early end. The 22-year-old isn't expected to require surgery and could be available to play in the fall and/or winter leagues. He'll finish the year with a .281/.406/.424 slash line, four home runs, 35 RBI and 13 stolen bases in 64 games for the Timber Rattlers.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Tyler Black: Added to IL
High-A Wisconsin placed Black on its 7-day injured list Monday due to an unspecified issue.
The 21-year-old infielder hasn't played for Wisconsin since July 10, so he may have been dealing with an injury for a few days prior to the All-Star break. Black closed the High-A club's first-half schedule with a .281/.406/.424 slash line to go with four home runs and 13 stolen bases across 283 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Tyler Black: Performing well in High-A
Black has a .292/.415/.461 slash line with four homers, 11 steals on 15 attempts and a 33:35 BB:K through 49 games for High-A Wisconsin.
There's a lot to like about the well-rounded profile Black brings to the table. While he most likely isn't a future star, he does a little bit of everything and as a hitter is reminiscent of David Fletcher, just without the defensive ability to play shortstop. The question for Black as he rises through the organization will be whether he can hit for enough power to be a starting second baseman in the big leagues. For what it's worth, the Brewers have also given him some exposure at third base and in center field, but he doesn't really have the arm to be effective at either of those spots.... See More ...
