Brewers PR man Ken Spindler put together a list of Brewers players participating in the various Winter Leagues. Here are some highlights:
The Fielding Bible Awards were unveiled on Monday, in which panel of experts, including MLB.com’s Peter Gammons, stat guru Bill James and defensive metric innovator John Dewan, selected the top defensive player at each position by ranking players 1-10. The Brewers had precisely zero players make the top 10 at his position.
It seems to me that the silver lining of an otherwise lost Brewers season is the slew of rookies who have proven they fit at the Major League level. With that in mind, here’s a preview of a feature set to hit Brewers.com later today:
After leaving the game for precautionary reasons on Friday night with a tight right hamstring, All-Star right fielder Corey Hart remained out of the lineup Saturday for the Brewers.
Hours after trading veteran center fielder Jim Edmonds to the Reds for outfielder Chris Dickerson, manager Ken Macha had plenty of changes in store for the Brewers lineup.
No major surprises in manager Ken Macha’s final lineup before the All-Star break.
As promised by manager Ken Macha, rookie shortstop Alcides Escobar got the day off Tuesday in the Brewers’ second of a four-game series against the Giants at Miller Park.
After tweaking the lineup so many times early on to find a combination that works, Brewers manager Ken Macha has made far fewer changes of late. For Tuesday night’s matchup with the Astros, there’s only one change from the night before.
A day after he made a series of sparkling defensive plays, Alcides Escobar, who is 2-for-15 at the plate on this road trip, will be on the Brewers bench as a three-game series against the Cardinals continues on Saturday afternoon. The Cardinals are featuring a rookie right-hander, Adam Ottavino, making his second Major League start.
