Brinson, a 23-year-old outfielder, went 0-2 with two walks in the leadoff spot for Milwaukee.
Brinson is listed as the 13th-best prospect in the minor leagues, according to MLB.com. He batted .312/.397/.503 over 45 games with Class-AAA Colorado Springs this year.
The Brewers acquired Brinson in a trade with Texas last season. Milwaukee acquired Brinson, minor league pitcher Luis Ortiz, and a player to be named later in return for catcher Jonathan Lucroy and reliever Jeremy Jeffress.
