Brewers 2018 Top Prospects

When the rebuilding began in earnest in July 2015, everyone marked it on their calendars: entering the 2018 season, the new and improved Brewers would have their first competitive, winning season under their belts, and the top of the farm system would be defined by internal draft picks moreso than rebuilding trades. 2018 Milwaukee Brewers […]

Corey Ray: Pedigree and Performance

Could The Answer In Center Field Actually Be Two?

The 2018 Brewers will come into Spring Training with far fewer question marks in the lineup than they have in recent years, but center field remains an area of uncertainty. Keon Broxton has been good for 2.4 WARP in 707 plate appearances of action over the past two seasons, but his high strikeout rate makes […]

Offseason 1: Securing Roles

Yesterday, the Brewers signed two contracts that will keep key players from 2017 with the organization. GM David Stearns signed RHP Chase Anderson to a guaranteed two-year contract, which also includes escalators and club options that could extent to a four-year deal north of $30 million.
