21. David Goforth, RHP

David Goforth, a seventh-round pick out of Ole Miss in 2011, is currently in the Brewers bullpen, in his second stint with the big club after debuting in late May.

The 26-year-old has appeared in six games, working 4.1 innings and allowing two runs on five hits with two walks and five strikeouts.

At Colorado Springs this season, Goforth had a 2.37 ERA and 1.211 WHIP in 31 appearances and 38 innings, saving three games and striking out 28 batters.

He closed in 2014 at Double-A Huntsville, saving 27 games and posting a 3.76 ERA and 1.376 WHIP in 54 appearances and 64.2 innings, fanning 46.

Another short righty, the 5-foot-10 Goforth brings his fastball in the mid-90s and complements it with a cutter/slider combo, but can struggle with command at times.

22. Tyler Cravy, RHP

Tyler Cravy was a 17th-round pick in 2009 out of Napa Valley (Calif.) College and made his debut for the Brewers on June 2.

He’s made two spot starts and one relief appearance for the Brewers, allowing six runs on 15 hits in 15 innings, striking out nine.

In 16 starts at Colorado Springs this season, Cravy is 7-6 with a 3.59 ERA and 1.218 WHIP in 90.1 innings, fanning 74.

Last year, he was having a terrific year at Huntsville before missing most of the second half of the season with a strained oblique. He was 8-1 with a 1.73 ERA and 0.849 WHIP in 12 starts and two relief outings, striking out 64 in 73 innings. He made one start at Triple-A Nashville, allowing a run on three hits in 3.1 innings with three walks and four strikeouts.

Opinion is still mixed on the 26-year-old—some see him as a back-of-the-rotation starter and others see him with a future in middle relief.

23. David Denson, 1B

David Denson was a 15th-round pick in 2013 out of South Hills High School in West Covina, Calif., and started this year at Wisconsin, but hit just .195/.264/.304 in 24 games, hitting one homer and driving in eight runs, before he was sent back to Helena.

In 30 games there, he is at .286/.375/.376 with 16 runs, eight doubles, four homers and 13 RBI.

Last year, the 20-year-old played in 68 games at Wisconsin, hitting .243/.364/.350 with 10 doubles, four home runs and 29 RBI.

At 6-foot-3 and 254 pounds, Denson’s big swing is getting better—his strikeout rate is down to 26.5 percent this season after sitting at 30 percent in 2014.

24. Hobbs Johnson, LHP

Hobbs Johnson was a 14th-round pick in 2013 out of the University of North Carolina and has settled in nicely at Biloxi this season.

The stocky left-hander (5-foot-11, 230 pounds) is 7-4 with a 3.20 ERA and 1.256 WHIP in 18 starts, striking out 76 in 90 innings this season.

Last year at Brevard County, Johnson was 12-8 with a 2.93 ERA and 1.093 WHIP in 24 starts and a relief appearance, striking out 105 in 147.1 innings.

The 24-year-old projects as a middle reliever, although he has had more success than expected as a starter in the minors.

25. Brandon Woodruff, RHP

Brandon Woodruff, 22, was an 11th-round pick by the Brewers last year out of Mississippi State University and was bumped all the way to Brevard County this season.

He is 1-4 with a 4.44 ERA and 1.466 WHIP in 14 starts, striking out 37 in 73 innings this season.

Last year at Helena, he was 1-2 with a 3.28 ERA and 1.371 WHIP in eight starts and six relief appearances, striking out 37 in 46.2 innings.

The plan at this point is to see if Woodruff can show enough command to start and if not, he will take his low-90s fastball and solid slider and chanegup to the bullpen.

Next: 26 Through 30
