Scouting Report

The Brewers selected Stokes in the fourth round of the 2014 Draft out of the Maryland prep ranks and lured him away from his Terps commitment with a $400,000 bonus. He made his full-season debut two years later, flashing a promising blend of power and speed at Class A Wisconsin, then broke out in earnest at age 21 in 2017 by hitting 20 home runs and swiping 31 bags while reaching Double-A. Spending all of 2018 in the Southern League, Stokes nearly posted his second straight 20-20 campaign and was added to Milwaukee's 40-man roster after the season. After a full season in Triple-A, Stokes was claimed off waivers in early September after the Brewers had designated him for assignment.

Stokes is undersized but also very strong, with a quick right-handed bat and uppercut barrel path that is conducive to hitting the ball in the air. He sells out for power, employing an aggressive, extreme-pull approach that leads to a lot of swing-and-miss and raises questions about his hit-tool utility. The good news is that Stokes' strong on-base skills -- he's posted at least a .340 OBP in each of his first three full-season campaigns -- should help to mitigate concerns about his bat, as he's long demonstrated a discerning eye while drawing walks at a healthy clip.

An above-average runner, Stokes knows how to apply his wheels on the basepaths and improved as a basestealer in 2018. A well-below-average arm will limit him to a career in left field, but he's generally regarded as an above-average defender at the position and was the Minor League Gold Glove-winner there in 2018. Overall, he has the profile of a semi-regular or platoon player, perhaps more so if he can start converting some of the strikeouts into contact.
