2023 Fantasy Outlook
It was a tale of three seasons for Mitchell. The 6-foot-3 center fielder was dreadful for his first 29 games at Double-A, logging a .676 OPS and 32.3 K% before suffering an oblique injury. He returned in mid-July and tallied a .356/.419/.515 slash line with three home runs, 10 steals and a 20.3 K% in 34 games between Double-A and Triple-A. The big difference seemed to be that Mitchell reverted to his approach from UCLA, where he was working more as a table setter than someone who was regularly looking to put his plus raw power to use in games. Milwaukee diverted from their attempts to unlock that power in games and just let him be the most effective version of himself. That approach earned him a late-season call-up. In the majors, Mitchell's 41.2 K% and .548 BABIP scream regression, but he nonetheless managed to be worth a full win above replacement while hitting .311 with two home runs and eight steals in 28 games. The Brewers have a crowded outfield depth chart, specifically on the prospect side, with Esteury Ruiz and Sal Frelick also profiling as speedy big-league-ready center fielders. Mitchell is the eldest and got the most run in the majors of the trio, so he will likely be given a shot to win a job in camp. Read Past Outlooks

Shows off power, speed
OFMilwaukee Brewers
October 4, 2022
Mitchell went 2-for-4 a solo home run and a stolen base in Tuesday's win over the Diamondbacks.
ANALYSIS
Mitchell got the start in center field Tuesday and capitalized by showing off both his power and his speed with a homer and a stolen base. The home run, a solo shot to right field to lead off the second inning, was his second of the season, and got the Brewers on the board. He also led off the sixth inning with a single and a stolen base base, his seventh of the season. In 64 plate appearances, the rookie has posted a strong .310/.365/.466 slash line.

2021 Fantasy Outlook
Mitchell brings a dazzling array of tools to the table, but his ability to leverage them consistently in games is in question. He slid to the Brewers with the No. 20 overall pick in last year's draft, in part due to him having Type 1 diabetes. The UCLA product logged an elite 12.0 K% and a 9.0 BB% in 366 PA over his sophomore and junior campaigns. While he hit around .350 in each of those seasons, Mitchell had just six home runs in 77 games, despite showing off plus raw power in batting practice. He can ambush mistakes over the plate, but he typically brings a contact-oriented approach to the dish. The Brewers will likely attempt to unlock more power, and a swing change would delay his arrival in the majors. For now, 70-grade speed is the top selling point in dynasty. A quad injury limited his reps in the fall instructional league, so he could be pretty rusty when he reports to spring training.
