Milwaukee Brewers to sign Deolis Guerra to minor league deal with Spring Training invite

Milwaukee Brewers to sign Deolis Guerra to minor league deal with Spring Training invite

He’s made 73 big league appearances in parts of three seasons. The Milwaukee Brewers reportedly added another name to their bullpen mix yesterday, inking a hurler with a good bit of MLB experience under his belt. According to Adam McCalvy, right-hander Deolis Guerra has agreed to a minor league pact that includes an invitation to come and compete in big league camp next spring: Brewers have signed RHP Deolis Guerra to a Minor League contract with an invitation to big league camp. He’s the Brewers’ third non-roster invitee so far, with C Tuffy Gosewisch and LHP Angel Perdomo.— Adam...

BCB Mailbag 55: Manny Machado’s leaky toilet

Answering the burning questions from you, the reader. Happy weekend, everyone! I’m set to watch the biggest football game of every year - Army vs. Navy - later today, so let’s dive into those question before it gets too close to kickoff: Lerch&Brouhard asks: What is your plan for the Brewers at second base this year? Budget considered or not. Which high end free agent would you want? Which medium level free agent? Who would you trade for? If an internal option how many starts for each player? Who would be better at second, Eric Thames or Jesus Aguilar? (Inspired by Ryan Braun’s...

Milwaukee Brewers: Is Christian Bethancourt an option at catcher?

Christian Bethancourt turned in a career year at catcher for the Milwaukee Brewers Triple-A affiliate in 2018. Why isn’t he getting any consideration for a job with the Major League team?

Milwaukee Brewers one of ten teams “in” on JT Realmuto, per report

They aren’t believed to be pursuing him as aggressively as some other teams, though. The Milwaukee Brewers have so far committed to bringing back both of their primary catchers from 2018, re-signing Erik Kratz to a one-year deal to avoid arbitration as well as tendering a contract to Manny Pina (which allows the two parties to continue negotiating until after the new year in order to try and avoid a hearing). But while the team would surely tell you that they’d be content entering Spring Training with that productive tandem behind the plate, that may not be stopping them from looking...

Milwaukee Brewers: 3 Trades That Could Happen At The Winter Meetings

The Winter Meetings start in Las Vegas on Sunday night on December 9th and will continue through Thursday December 13th. In that time, a lot of trades and free agent signings can happen. What can we expect from the Milwaukee Brewers? Milwaukee Brewers GM David Stearns has quite the history at the Winter Meetings.

Milwaukee Brewers: Tuffy Gosewisch Provides Interesting Catching Depth

While many assumed the Milwaukee Brewers would try to add to their catching corps this offseason, few predicted the possibility of Tuffy Gosewisch joining the Crew on a minor league deal. The Milwaukee Brewers have not just found their starting catcher for the 2019 season. But they may have found their starting catcher for Triple-A […] Milwaukee Brewers: Tuffy Gosewisch Provides Interesting Catching Depth - Reviewing the Brew - Reviewing the Brew - A Milwaukee Brewers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Brewers sign Tuffy Gosewisch to minor league deal

You really didn’t expect David Stearns to go this long without a minor league signing, did you? While most of the talk about the Brewers’ catching situation has focused on the possibility of upgrades at the Major League level, they also could use some help at the upper levels of the minor league organization. Outside of Jacob Nottingham, the Brewers didn’t necessarily have anyone who was ready to handle Triple-A after Christian Bethancourt became a minor league free agent. Add in the possibility of Nottingham maybe getting a chance to steal a Major League roster spot this spring, and...

Milwaukee Brewers: How did Junior Guerra keep his job?

Dan Jennings, Xavier Cedeno, and Jonathan Schoop ended up non-tendered, but right-hander Junior Guerra will get a contract for 2019. Why did the Milwaukee Brewers keep the 34-year old right-hander? Junior Guerra was the Milwaukee Brewers’ Opening Day starter in 2017. He didn’t make the Opening Day roster in 2018. However, he did manage to […] Milwaukee Brewers: How did Junior Guerra keep his job? - Reviewing the Brew - Reviewing the Brew - A Milwaukee Brewers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Report: Former Brewer Jonathan Schoop signs with Minnesota Twins

Report: Former Brewer Jonathan Schoop signs with Minnesota Twins

Not even a week after a non-tender, Schoop has a new team. It didn’t take Jonathan Schoop long to find a new team after his non-tender last week. On Friday, the Brewers announced they would non-tender the second baseman, and David Stearns admitted it was his worst move as GM. Today, Schoop has a new team to work for, as Ken Rosenthal reports the Twins will sign Schoop to a one-year, $7 million contract. Had the Brewers held on to Schoop, he would have been heading for a big pay day in his final year of arbitration. MLB Trade Rumors had a projection of $10 million of Schoop, even after his...

Milwaukee Brewers: Is Daniel Murphy the answer at Second Base?

After deciding not to bring back Jonathan Schoop, it confirmed what many had already expected which is that the Milwaukee Brewers are still looking for their 2019 second baseman. There are a lot of options in free agency but perhaps the best fit could be veteran Daniel Murphy.

Milwaukee Brewers Free Agent Targets: DJ LeMahieu

Milwaukee Brewers Free Agent Targets: DJ LeMahieu

He’s more compelling than you might think. I’ll be the first to admit it - coming into this offseason, I didn’t think much of DJ LeMahieu as a potential free agent target for the Milwaukee Brewers. Sure, LeMahieu won a batting title with the Rockies by hitting .348 in 2016, but according to both wRC+ and OPS+, that season was the only one in the second baseman’s parts of eight years in the big leagues that his overall batting line was above the league average. In 3,799 plate appearances for Colorado, LeMahieu has hit .298/.350/.406, but when accounting for the park factors used by...

Milwaukee Brewers Free Agent Targets: Yusei Kikuchi

The left-hander is looking to make to jump across the pond from Japan. Yusei Kikuchi has been officially posted by the Seibu Lions, and yesterday the 30-day negotiating window for his services began. Because he is not a traditional free agent, he won’t command nearly as much money as, say, the $140 mil that Patrick Corbin just received, meaning that just about every team in the big leagues could afford to offer him a contract this winter without much too trouble. Not only that, but Kikuchi offers a blend of youth and upside that is unique on this year’s market, so there is naturally...
