Black was ranked as the top Canadian MLB prospect by TSN Blue Jays Reporter Scott Mitchell during his Top 20 Canadian Baseball Prospects of 2024 feature from January. 

The 23-year-old's combined 12 triples last season were the most in the affiliated minor league ranks. Black also finished first in Brewers' minor leaguers in runs (105), stolen bases (55) and extra-base hits (55). Black also ranked first among Canadian minor league players in runs, hits (128) and total bases (231). 

He was also named Brewers' co-minor league player of the year alongside outfielder Jackson Chourio.
