2016

As a 17-year-old, Lara held his own pretty well despite being one of the younger members in the rookie leagues. Highly touted for his power, he didn't exhibit it all that frequently, as he only hit one home run between both of the Brewers' rookie league affiliates. Lara did show off his speed with five triples and three stolen bases, though he was also caught three times as well. The international prospect is still very young, so the pedestrian numbers in his first professional season shouldn't deter the Brewers from continuing to consider him one of the brightest prospects in their system.

2015

The Brewers had been rumored as suitors for Lara -- one of the top international free agents -- for much of 2014, and they finally got their man when he signed with the team in July for $3.2 million. Lara is just 16 years old, but he possesses plus power potential. He is a shortstop by trade, but may switch positions as he grows. Even if that is necessary, he should still have the power to man a corner infield or outfield spot.
