2018 Fantasy Outlook
Erceg's power rates dipped in his second season as he got his first taste of High-A action, but he did do a better job putting the bat on the ball, cutting his strikeouts while making more contact. The results from his refined approach were not promising for most of the season as he owned just a .688 OPS at the end of July, but things all came together in August, when he posted a .296 batting average, .864 OPS and 14:20 BB:K over 26 High-A games. That showing, plus the fact he will turn 23 next May, puts him on track to earn an assignment to the Double-A ranks to kick off the 2018 campaign, and if he can carry over his late-season success, he could find himself comfortably listed on most top-100 prospect lists when they are revised around the midway point in 2018.

Picking it up at Double-A level
3BMilwaukee Brewers  AA
August 6, 2018
Erceg has hit .305/.349/.513 with eight home runs and 24 RBI over 41 games since the Double-A All-Star break.
ANALYSIS
Erceg owned just a .629 OPS on the season when the first half came to a close, but his recent hot streak has boosted that number nearly 100 points to .717. His early struggles took some shine off his prospect status, but he still remains one of the top young hitters in the Brewers' system.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Erceg, Milwaukee's 2016 second-round pick, destroyed rookie ball and earned a quick promotion thanks to a 1.004 OPS in his first 26 professional games. He continued to flash power to all fields after promotion to the full-season Midwest League, as he mashed seven home runs in just 42 games for Low-A Wisconsin. At 6-foot-3, Erceg has the frame to be a big-time power hitter in the major leagues and should continue to improve his power if he can bulk up in the next few years. He has the arm to play third base, so if he can continue to develop his power, he could be Milwaukee's third baseman of the future.
