As the focus remained on Brewers’ ninth rated prospect Devin Williams and 13th ranked Tucker Neuhaus – outfielder Brandon Diaz became a threat on the basepaths.

Milwaukee drafted the high school outfielder from Florida with its eight round selection in 2013 and eventually earned top rankings in the Arizona League including stolen bases and runs scored.
