Outfielder Mitch Haniger, the Brewers' #5 top prospect, will begin the season in Huntsville after splitting time with Single-A Wisconsin and High- A Brevard County in 2013. Brewers #9 top prospect Taylor Jungmann is back in Huntsville after winning 10 games as a starting pitcher in the 2013 season.
2013 Brewers Minor League Player of the Year Jason Rogers returns to the Stars after hitting .270 and driving in 87 runs at first base. Outfielder Brock Kjeldgaard, who led the Southern League with 24 home runs in 2013, rejoins the team along with infielder Josh Prince, who played for Huntsville in 2012 and brings major league experience to the roster. They join pitchers and other Brewers' Top 20 Prospects David Goforth and Drew Gagnon as notable returnees.
The Stars will open their 2014 season against the Jacksonville Suns in Jacksonville, Florida with a five game series before returning home for the home opener on April 9th.
