Profile: Drafted by the Brewers in the seventh round of the 2015 Draft out of the University of Miami, Iskenderian began his collegiate career at South Carolina, then moved to Indian River Junior College, before finally landing with the Hurricanes. Milwaukee inked Iskenderian to a $200,000 deal and sent him to Helena of the Pioneer League. After showing enough polish in his pro debut to convince Milwaukee to skip him over Low-A Wisconsin, Iskenderian moved to High-A Brevard County in 2016. A line drive hitter who uses all parts of the field, Iskenderian has shown an ability to square balls up and hit for a good average early on, though he hasn’t displayed a ton of power. Primarily a second baseman, he did see some time at third last season as well, and that defensive versatility could prove valuable as he continues to advance.

2015: Upon signing with Milwaukee, Iskenderian bypassed the AZL and started his professional baseball career with Helena in the Pioneer League. He saw action in 36 games during his first season, batting .307/.346/.378 with six doubles and a home run.

2016: Milwaukee opted to have Iskenderian skip over Single-A Wisconsin, aggressively pushing him to High-A Brevard County to start 2016 and he held his own there, hitting .260/.312/.338 over 90 games with the Manatees. Battling through several stints on the DL, he developed as one of the more reliable bats in the Brevard lineup, seeing time at both second and third base.
