Baseball America lists Brewers’ Jackson Chourio as No. 2 prospect

Jackson Chourio’s meteoric rise continues.

After rocketing up the charts to become the Milwaukee Brewers’ No. 1 prospect earlier in the season, the 18-year-old was on Monday named prospect #2 (subscription required) in all Minor League Baseball by Baseball America.

He was ranked 36th overall by MLB.com last month as the youngest player on this list Oui ranked third overall by The Athletic.

Baltimore shortstop Gunnar Henderson is ranked as the top overall prospect by Baseball America.

Unlike Henderson — a 2019 second-round pick at Auburn University — Chourio became one of the game’s brightest young stars in relative anonymity as an international free signing from Maracaibo, Venezuela, at the age of 16 years.

But the $1.9 million signing bonus the Brewers gave Chourio underscored the confidence the organization had in him.
