Heading into this season, the Milwaukee Brewers had just a handful of prospects that MLB Pipeline predicted might hit the big leagues in 2021. One of those few was 2019 1st round draft pick and Pipeline’s No. 4 Brewers prospect, Ethan Small.
Small hadn’t pitched above the Low-A level, which he did the year he was drafted with the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers.
