On the Rise: Monte Harrison

The Milwaukee Brewers tabbed Monte Harrison with the 50th overall pick in the 2014 MLB Draft knowing that he would be a project. The 6’3″ outfielder possessed athleticism in spades, prompting the Brewers to lure Harrison away from a collegiate commitment to Nebraska as a wide receiver with a well over-slot $1.8 million signing bonus.

A Big Splash is not the Answer

Fresh off a surprise 86-win season, David Stearns and company are licking their chops to make some moves and build off the team’s promising 2017 season.

Corey Ray: Pedigree and Performance

In 2017, Corey Ray was named a mid-season All-Star for the Carolina Mudcats. He was selected to participate in the 2017 SiriusXM All-Star Futures game alongside fellow baby Brewers Lewis Brinson and Mauricio Dubon.

Free Agency II: Forecasting Chase

What’s next for the Brewers’ surprising rotation leader Chase Anderson? Can the Brewers be expected to draw lessons from Anderson into further roster moves?
