Profile:  A member of Milwaukee’s July 2nd signing class in 2016, the Dominican-born Florentino made his pro debut a year later, playing for the Brewers Dominican Summer League team at the age of 17.  A right-handed hitter with the ability to drive the ball, Florentino more than held his own in his first season, showing a good eye at the plate and plus speed on the bases.  Mainly relegated to left field in 2017 due to presence of Pablo Abreu, Florentino is best suited for center, where his speed in on full display.
