Gatewood continues power surge for Class A Wisconsin

Brewers' No. 23 prospect notches second multi-homer effort in past three games

Gatewood continues power surge for Class A Wisconsin

Prior to the 2014 Draft, Jake Gatewood showed that he possessed plenty of power. However, early in his professional career, the 20-year-old shortstop had trouble turning that raw power into on-field production.

Gatewood, the Brewers No. 23 prospect, certainly put the power on display Wednesday in the opener of a twin bill as he went 3-for-3 with two homers for Class A Wisconsin, his second career multi-homer game.

What about his first career multi-homer game? That took place Saturday when he went 3-for-5 with two homers and a double for the Timber Rattlers.

Gatewood hit three homers in 2014, the same year the Brewers drafted him with the 41st overall pick. But he hit 10 homers in 2015 and has five through the first 30 games of 2016.
