(WFRV) – Brewers 2020 first round pick and top prospect Garrett Michell has been assigned to the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers.
Milwaukee picked Mitchell twentieth overall last summer out of UCLA. The outfielder wouldn’t make his professional debut until spring training in Arizona.
Mitchell appeared in 22 games during spring training with the Brewers, and finished 11-for-30 with a homer and six RBIs.
He played 15 games last spring with the Bruins before the pandemic halted the college baseball season. Mitchell had a .355 average with an OPS of .909 prior to the shutdown.
Mitchell will be the twelfth first round pick signed by the Brewers since 2008 to play for the Timber Rattlers.
The rest of this year’s Timber Rattlers roster will be announced when the team heads to Grand Chute from Arizona at the beginning of May.
