As we approach Opening Day on March 28, more MLB teams start to round out their rosters.

The results of fierce spring training battles are starting to appear on all squads: some players will live out their dreams, while others will have to try again later.

In the specific case of Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Jackson Chourio, he got the good news on Friday: he will be part of the team on Opening Day and will make his MLB debut.

Jackson Chourio will be bringing his elite power/speed combo to the big leagues as a member of the @Brewers #OpeningDay roster,” MLB Stats tweeted.

With that caption, MLB Stats also published Chourio’s 2023 numbers in the minor leagues.

They were something to behold.

He hit .282 with a .805 OPS, 22 home runs, 44 stolen bases, 88 runs, and 91 RBI.

He split his time between Double-A and Triple-A and was equally good at both levels.

Chourio is MLB’s number two prospect, so the talent is there for him to be an impact player from the go.

In any other case he would have probably been left in Triple-A to open the year, but since the Brewers already signed him to an eight-year, $82 million extension with two additional option seasons, there are no service time-related things to be worried about.

With the two options, Chourio’s deal might be worth about $140 million.

Thanks to his incredible talent, raw power, and speed, Chourio secured the largest extension for a player who hasn’t made his MLB debut.

He will now patrol the Brewers’ outfield for the foreseeable future.
