RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Jacob Nottingham.
Nottingham is just one of the many former Astros acquired by Brewers general David Stearns, who arrived in Milwaukee via Houston's front office in 2015. It's easy to see why Stearns was enamored enough to give up Khris Davis's big bat to acquire Nottingham from the Athletics. Nottingham, blessed with a football player's body, has power to all fields while flashing a good enough arm and glove to be a decent major league catcher. Unfortunately, elevation to Double-A Biloxi did not treat him well. Nottingham struck out 138 times in just 112 games and managed just 11 home runs compared to the 17 he hit in 2015. It's important to keep perspective, though. At just 21, Nottingham was about three years younger than his typical opponent at Double-A last season, and he has plenty of time to work out the kinks in his swing.
The 2013 sixth-round pick of the Astros was acquired by the A's in the trade that sent Scott Kazmir to Houston and then traded to the Brewers in the offseason for Khris Davis. The right-handed hitting catcher had a breakout minor league season in 2015. According to scouts, Nottingham possesses above average raw power, and A's general manager Billy Beane said Nottingham has the potential to develop into a middle-of-the-order hitter. He will be only 21 in April, likely starting the year in Double-A. With Jonathan Lucroy set to become a free agent at the end of the year, Nottingham is clearly the Brewers' catcher of the future and one of the top backstops to own in dynasty leagues.
