Scouting Chad Spanberger, new prospect for the Milwaukee Brewers

The Milwaukee Brewers acquired some new infield power when they traded Chase Anderson to the Toronto Blue Jays and brought back Chad Spanberger.

The Colorado Rockies drafted the left-handed hitting Spanberger in the sixth round of the 2017 MLB Draft. Baseball America had Spanberger ranked in its top-200 draft prospects at 163 and listed him as a catcher/third baseman/first baseman. After roughly a full season in the Rockies farm, Colorado sent Spanberger to the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for Sueng-hwan Oh. Spanberger was one of three prospects sent to the Jays, including former top-100 prospect Forrest Wall.
