Joey Wiemer

23-Year-Old OutfielderOF
Milwaukee Brewers AAA
2023 Fantasy Outlook
If it weren't for Wiemer's insane finish to the 2022 season, it would be pretty easy to conclude he has a low likelihood of making enough contact to be more than a short-side platoon outfielder. He was a hair below league average (98 wRC+) with a 30.2 K%, 65.7 Contact% and 9.1 BB% in 84 games as a 23-year-old at Double-A before getting an early-August bump to Triple-A. Three weeks after his promotion, Wiemer went on a heater, slashing .337/.438/.630 with five home runs, three steals and more walks (18) than strikeouts (17) in his final 27 games. Prior to that run, Wiemer hit .237/.309/.427 in 99 games, so either he had a lucky four weeks at the end of the season or he took a legitimate step forward as a hitter. It should be noted that he wasn't facing great pitching over that final month, as most of the good pitchers at Triple-A are already in the majors by the season's final month, and he took advantage of some long series in a couple hitter-friendly parks. Notorious for his 70-grade power, Wiemer is also a plus runner, going 31-for-34 on stolen-base attempts last season. The power/speed upside is pretty obvious, and there's solid evidence on both sides of the hit tool debate. Wiemer projects to add value with his right field defense. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
Wiemer has posted a meager .450 OPS over 19 games with Double-A Biloxi since the start of July, but that did not prevent the Brewers from moving him up to the top level of the minor leagues. Wiemer played in this year's Futures Game and posted a .984 OPS over his first 38 games of the year, so there are reasons to be excited about his future. However, he will need to get back on track at the plate to maintain his prospect status.

2022 Fantasy Outlook
Wiemer, the Brewers' fourth-round pick in 2020, was one of the biggest breakout prospects in the minors last season. His swing in college drew comparisons to Hunter Pence (unfavorably so), but he remade his swing and and the results were undeniable. He hit 27 home runs and stole 30 bases (on 36 attempts) while slashing .295/.403/.556 as an old-for-the-level 22-year-old at Low-A and High-A. Wiemer then got on base at a .568 clip in 37 Arizona Fall League plate appearances prior to suffering a minor thumb injury. As with most tooled up right fielders, there will always be some swing and miss with Wiemer, and Double-A will be a big test for him. If he can pick up where he left off in 2021, Wiemer would establish himself as a legitimate 30/20 threat with a 2023 ETA. However, if he strikes out too much, his age (23) will be held against him and his breakout 2021 season will be seen as another example of an older player beating up on weak competition in the lower levels.
