Brewers general manager Doug Melvin appeared on the Milwaukee sports radio station WSSP on Tuesday and made some interesting comments about the Brewers outfield. The assumption all along is that the regular starters would be center fielder Carlos Gomez, left fielder Ryan Braun and right fielder Corey Hart. But that projection may only be two-thirds correct.
“It’s probably going to be Gomez and Braun and right now we’re looking at our other options,” Melvin said. “We have more left-handed bats this year so some left-handed hitters may play more often than they have in the past. [Jim] Edmonds has had a good spring. Corey Hart has not had a good spring up to this point. Jody Gerut has struggled.
“We’ll wait and see. We’ll determine that when the season starts. I think our outfield has a chance to be fairly productive. It’s going to be a different look than we’ve had in the past. There’s going to be a little more left-handedness to it, going to be a little more speed, probably not as much power. There’s still five days left here and we have that time to make some decisions before we make the final roster.”
