How good is the Marlins’ farm system now?

How good is the Marlins’ farm system now?

How have their key prospects progressed since preseason rankings came out? The Marlins farm system had been a cellar dweller for several years. Draft picks and trades didn’t pan out, the investment in Latin America was insufficient, and when elite prospects such as Giancarlo Stanton and Christian Yelich hit the majors, the next wave of talent never developed. Since 2015, SB Nation’s preseason farm system rankings consistently placed the Fish at or near the bottom: 2015 Rank: 29th 2016 Rank: 29th 2017 Rank: 30th New ownership turned over much of their roster this past winter,...

Josh Hader, Lorenzo Cain, Christian Yelich selected to All-Star team, Jesus Aguilar left out

Jesus Aguilar is on the Final Player Ballot Back in January the Milwaukee Brewers signed Lorenzo Cain to (at the time) the largest free agent contract of the off season and traded prospects for Christian Yelich, totally revamping their outfield and theoretically giving the Crew an over-abundance of outfielders. Was it the right move? Well, apparently...both of them are All Stars for the Milwaukee Brewers. They were named as reserves for the National League team tonight, and join shoe-in reliever Josh Hader as three Brewer representatives at the July 17 All Star Game in Washington D.C. And...

Newcomb struggles again as Braves fall to Brewers

Newcomb struggles again as Braves fall to Brewers

Sean Newcomb had another tough start while Atlanta’s bats fell silent against the Brewers. Sean Newcomb had another tough outing as the Atlanta Braves fell to the Milwaukee Brewers 10-3. Newcomb ran into trouble in the third where the Brewers plated five runs with the big blow coming on a three-run homer off the bat of Herńan Pérez. Christian Yelich plated the first run with a single that scored Jonathan Villar. Travis Shaw followed two batters later with a sacrifice fly to make it 2-0. That set up Perez who jumped on a 1-0 pitch and hammered it to left center to increase the lead to...

Milwaukee Brewers: Can Keon Broxton stick in Milwaukee?

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Keon Broxton has made several outstanding defensive plays since being recalled and has swung it pretty well. Could he stick in the majors even when Lorenzo Cain returns? Keon Broxton was the Milwaukee Brewers starting centerfielder for much of 2017. However, the acquisitions of Cain and Christian Yelich pushed Broxton out of […] Milwaukee Brewers: Can Keon Broxton stick in Milwaukee? - Reviewing the Brew - Reviewing the Brew - A Milwaukee Brewers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Brewers Injury Updates: Lorenzo Cain improving, Tyler Saladino return ‘any day now’

The Brewers don’t have a day off until the All-Star break, but appear close to getting some fresh legs back in the lineup The Milwaukee Brewers have had to play short-handed for the first part of this stretch of 21 games in 20 days before the All-Star break, especially in the outfield where Lorenzo Cain has landed on the DL and Christian Yelich has had to miss some time with back problems, on top of Ryan Braun’s usual nagging ailments. The light appears to be at the end of the tunnel, though. Yelich is back in the lineup for today’s 4th of July series finale against the Minnesota...

Early Returns: The Christian Yelich Trade

Early Returns: The Christian Yelich Trade

With roughly half a season in the books, did the Marlins get enough for Christian Yelich? Stats current through 7/1 games This past January, the Marlins traded the final piece away from their star-studded outfield to the Brewers in 26-year-old Christian Yelich, who figured to be one of their main run producers along with catcher J.T. Realmuto. With roughly half of the 2018 season in the books, we can start to examine the return that Miami fetched. Yelich has taken well to the change of scenery. After posting 5.3 fWAR in 2016 and 4.4 fWAR in 2017, the lefty swinger has earned a spot near the...

Sunday Sundries: Milwaukee Brewers Week 14 in Review

Three three and three weeks in a row... The Milwaukee Brewers said all along that having lots of good outfielders wasn’t a bad thing, and they didn’t flip any of the excess major league level outfielders for perceived needed pitching in the off season. Then this week happened...as the week wore on, Lorenzo Cain was on the disabled list, Christian Yelich left a game with lower back tightness, and Ryan Braun left a game with back tightness of his own, the Brewers were fielding an outfield of Keon Broxton, Hernan Perez, and Eric Thames. Domingo Santana is currently searching for his bat at...

A great team win for Brewers over Reds, 6-4

Brewers come back twice to win 1st game of 4 game set WP: Junior Guerra (4-5); LP: Amir Garrett (0-1); Save: Corey Knebel (8); Home runs: Mil - Jesus Aguilar (19), Eric Thames (10); Cin- Jose Peraza (4), Jesse Winkler (6) Box Score - yay! I don’t know that I’ve enjoyed a Brewer win this much all year, which is saying something. The Milwaukee Nine (47-33) topped the Cincinnati Reds (34-47) by coming back from two two-run deficits, surviving an injury to Christian Yelich, and making key plays offensively, defensively, and on the mound. The game was played in three distinct sections. The...
