Keston Hiura and the first base situation for the Milwaukee Brewers is something worth monitoring during the month of April

Keston Hiura and the first base situation for the Milwaukee Brewers is something worth monitoring during the month of April

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports The newly-minted first baseman has struggled to start the year. The Milwaukee Brewers are only three games into the 2021 MLB regular season, meaning that it is, of course, far too early to be hitting any sort of panic button just yet. But the current campaign did not get off to an encouraging start as the Brewers dropped two of their first three games at home against the Minnesota Twins over the weekend. A year after their lineup was among the league’s worst at scoring runs, the Brewers’ offense began 2021 by collectively going...

Brewers: Should We Be Worrying About Keston Hiura?

The Brewers have not gotten off to an ideal start to the season after losing the opening series to the Twins with a relatively putrid offensive output. One of the key players that struggled offensively was Keston Hiura. The man can hit. Ever since the Brewers drafted Hiura in 2017, that’s all we’ve heard about […] Brewers: Should We Be Worrying About Keston Hiura? - Reviewing the Brew - Reviewing the Brew - A Milwaukee Brewers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

MLB Opening Day: Bold Predictions for the 2021 Milwaukee Brewers

Photo by Norm Hall/ Two stars bounce back and an old friend returns midseason. Today begins the 2021 Championship Season, and according to most projections the Milwaukee Brewers should be in the thick of playoff contention once again throughout the regular season as they look to make a fourth consecutive postseason berth. No one knows yet exactly how the season will shake out, but the Brew Crew Ball staff have made the following bold predictions about this year’s iteration of the Brewers: Lindsey_Loberg: Keston Hiura has a 30 home run season After an outstanding debut...

Daniel Vogelbach will make the Brewers Opening Day roster

Photo by Ralph Freso/ Big Dan’s lack of options and defensive ability seemingly put him in trouble with no DH, but the Brewers say they’ll start the year with him on the roster The lack of a designated hitter in the National League left Dan Vogelbach’s future with the Brewers in question for much of this spring. While he’s capable of standing at first base and could be one of the many fallback options the Brewers have if the Keston Hiura experiment doesn’t work well there, it was far from a preferable option, and his lack of defensive versatility is not...

Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports Keston Hiura is heating up, and Garrett Mitchell continues to breed optimism throughout Brewers Nation The Milwaukee Brewers and the Chicago White Sox went at it today in Cactus League action. With the announcement that Freddy Peralta would be in the starting rotation for the “the first turn,” it is apropos that he would get the nod on the mound this afternoon. His counterpart was Carlos Rodon. Peralta had some nasty stuff today. Freddy Peralta, K'ing the Side...and a K strut or two. pic.twitter.com/iIQZ2s0zeG— Rob Friedman...

Photo by Rob Leiter/MLB Photos via Brett Anderson allowed two runs but also drove in a run. Box Score As Spring Training winds down, the Brewers are getting their roster in order for Opening Day. Earlier in the day, manager Craig Counsell finalized his Opening Day rotation. In that rotation is Brett Anderson, who will take the #4 starter spot to begin the season. He got the start today to keep him on track for the fourth game of the season. The game started relatively quiet in the first. Keston Hiura singled in the top of the inning but that was it for the Brewers....

Milwaukee Brewers 2021 preview by position: Shortstop

Matt Marton-USA TODAY Sports Is this finally the year Orlando Arcia breaks out? Overall, the nearly six-year tenure of David Stearns as the lead executive for the Milwaukee Brewers has been a success. But if there is one sore spot during his time in the Cream City, it has been the franchise’s ability to develop and graduate impact position player prospects. Maybe Keston Hiura winds up breaking that mold, but the jury is still out after a tough summer in 2020 and defensive switch to first base. Other than Hiura, the only other “homegrown” player in the projected...

Brewers: Is Daniel Vogelbach Going to Make the Cut for Opening Day?

With two weeks remaining in spring training, we’ve reached the point where a majority of the roster has started taking shape. The Brewers offense is no exception based on moves and announcements that have taken place over the last couple weeks. Keston Hiura is firmly entrenched at first base after the addition of second baseman […] Brewers: Is Daniel Vogelbach Going to Make the Cut for Opening Day? - Reviewing the Brew - Reviewing the Brew - A Milwaukee Brewers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Brewers: Crew Set Up Nicely at Third Base To Begin Regular Season

In the offseason, the Brewers added back-to-back Gold Glove award-winning second baseman Kolton Wong, which meant a position change to first base for Keston Hiura. As a result, the only glaring hole in the infield was third base. Believe it or not, David Stearns started addressing the third base position shortly after the non-tender deadline […] Brewers: Crew Set Up Nicely at Third Base To Begin Regular Season - Reviewing the Brew - Reviewing the Brew - A Milwaukee Brewers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Transaction Analysis: Brewers double down on run prevention with Jackie Bradley Jr. signing

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports David Stearns and Company place a premium on defense in 2021 with this move Coming into 2021, the Milwaukee Brewers had huge holes to fill at third base and first base. Their outfield was set with three starters with strong track records. Well David Stearns, as he is apt to do, did some “outside the box” stuff. He moved Keston Hiura to first base and signed defensive star Kolten Wong to man the keystone. He brought in Travis Shaw to compete for the third base job with other multi-positional players like Daniel Robertson, Luis Urias, and...

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports Can Keston Hiura return to form while learning a new position? The cold corner has been a position of extreme turnover for the Milwaukee Brewers over recent years. 2021 will mark ten seasons since the departure of Prince Fielder, perhaps the most talented homegrown hitter in franchise history. Barring something unforeseen, this year will also mark the tenth consecutive season that someone different will get the nod on Opening Day at first base. In some years, the Brewers have received solid-to-strong production out of their starter at the...
