The Brewers will move prospect Clint Coulter from catcher to right field in 2015.
Coulter first began making the transition in the instructional league and is already at the team's spring training complex in Arizona working on his new position. The move appears to be going smoothly thus far, and the 21-year-old's bat should play at any position after he hit .287/.410/.520 with 22 homers and 89 RBI at Low-A in 2014. Coulter was a first-round pick in 2012 and is listed by Baseball America as the Brewers' No. 4 prospect. Feb 13 - 3:36 PM

The Brewers plan to work out catching prospect Clint Coulter at third base and the outfield during the Instructional League.

Coulter caught 61 games at Low-A Wisconsin this season but also started 64 games in the designated hitter spot. It's his bat that will carry him, as the Brewers will try to squeeze him in somewhere at a position. Coulter hit .287/.410/.520 with 22 homers and 89 RBI this season. "Back in high school, I did play a little bit of third base and a little bit of outfield," he said. "So, we'll see. I'm going to instructional league as a catcher, but they did tell me I will probably be working at some other spots, maybe third base and the outfield. So far, I'm a catcher."

Brewers catching prospect Clint Coulter went 3-for-4 with two home runs and a walk for Low-A Wisconsin on Saturday.

Coulter has been hitting well over his last 25 games, putting up a .308/.461/.590 line with four doubles and six home runs to raise his season line to .268/.407/.510 with 23 doubles, two triples, and 19 home runs. He still projects as a power-hitting catcher with the potential to hit 20 home runs, but he may struggle to hit much above .250 and is still rough as a defensive catcher.

Brewers prospect C Clint Coulter capped an impressive weekend series on Sunday, going 2-for-3 with two home runs, four RBI and two walks for Class A Wisconsin.

Selected by the Brewers with the No. 27 overall pick in the 2012 draft, Coulter, 20, had an impressive professional debut after signing, but then struggled mightily last year and battled injuries in what was supposed to be his full-season debut. In 70 games across three levels, Coulter batted .244/.314/.400 with 14 doubles, seven home runs and a 60/20 strikeout-to-walk ratio. He's quickly making up for the lost time this year, however, with a 1.281 OPS and four home runs through his first nine games at Class A Wisconsin.

MLB.com's Adam McCalvy reports that the Brewers are close to a deal with first-round pick C Clint Coulter.

It's expected to be worth $1.675 million, which is the recommended figure for the 27th overall pick. Coulter, 18, projects as a power hitter but isn't likely to move very quickly through the Brewers' farm system given the low level of competition he faced during his high school days in Washington state. He has a whole lot to learn.

Brewers selected high-school C Clint Coulter with the No. 27 overall pick in the 2012 draft.

A state champion wrestler in Washington, Coulter has drawn loose comparisons to Mike Napoli. He may not have the defensive ability to stick behind the plate, but should have the power to man first base if a position switch becomes necessary. Coulter is still two months shy of his 19th birthday, and didn't face much top-flight competition in the Northwest, so he could need a number of seasons in the minors.
