At the end of each minor league season, Baseball America takes the time to tour around the circuits from Triple-A down to the short-season leagues and name the top-20 prospects at every stop. The rookie level Pioneer League affiliate for the Milwaukee Brewers plays in Colorado Springs, their first year at the old Sky Sox stadium after moving over from Helena and getting renamed the “Rocky Mountain Vibes.” This year BA ranked two Brew Crew minor leaguers among the top-20 prospects on the circuit.

2019 Most Valuable Brewer #8: Lorenzo Cain

2019 Most Valuable Brewer #8: Lorenzo Cain

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports Will he finally get the elusive and deserved Gold Glove? As we all know, Lorenzo Cain came to the Brewers last season as part of a 5-year, $80M deal. He more than delivered in year one of that deal, posting a .395 OBP in the lead off spot along with the best defensive numbers of any outfielder in baseball. His ability to get on base faltered by quite a margin in 2019 (.325 OBP), but his defense, on the other hand, remained elite even as he battled injuries. Only Harrison Bader had a better defensive rating among outfielders according to Fangraphs. LoCain set...

Photo by Jamie Schwaberow/ The 2019 Southern League Pitcher of the Year will make adjustments if he hopes to succeed in AAA Trey Supak dominated AA hitters over his 20 starts with the Biloxi Shuckers in 2019. During his time in Mississippi he posted a 2.20 ERA in 122.2 innings. Hitters that faced him at that level batted just .192 against him. At that point in time, he look like he would be the run-away favorite for every pitcher of the year honor that could be bestowed on a Brewers’ prospect. In fact he pitched so well over 20 starts with Biloxi that he was named the Southern League...

Milwaukee Brewers headed for free agency

Photo by Scott Taetsch/ Five players can hit the open market with no strings attached. For the first time in nearly forty years, the Milwaukee Brewers made back-to-back playoff appearances when they qualified as one of Wild Card entrants in 2019. Unfortunately the team was quickly eliminated in the do-or-die game, getting dispatched by the eventual National League champion Washington Nationals. The World Series began last night between the Nats and Houston Astros (with Washington winning 5-4), and shortly after the conclusion of that best-of-seven matchup, the offseason will begin in...

Milwaukee Brewers: Ryan Braun 2019 Season Report Card

After a so-so 2018 regular season but a productive offensive postseason, Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun decided to make a change to his swing during the off season to incorporate into the 2019 season. The change Braun wanted to make was an increase in launch angle. The hope was that change could result in ‘vintage’ Braun […] Milwaukee Brewers: Ryan Braun 2019 Season Report Card - Reviewing the Brew - Reviewing the Brew - A Milwaukee Brewers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

2019 Most Valuable Brewer #7: Ryan Braun

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports The old man in the batter’s box is still a force to be reckoned with. When you get to be Ryan Braun’s age, and you are a professional baseball player, the decline of your career is inevitable. It happens to even the best. There is no way around it. As Brewers’ fans, we have witnessed that decline in the Brewers’ outfielder. What is often the case, however, is that with the truly elite, the decline takes a longer path down. Ryan Braun demonstrated in 2019 that he still has a stretch of road left on his path before he gets to the end. In 2019, Braun...

2019 Brew Crew Ball community top prospects in review: #8 Jacob Nottingham

Photo by Joe Mahoney/ The former top catching prospect has a so-so 2019 Jacob Nottingham had a strong 2018. Despite some injuries, he hit .281/.347/.528 with 10 homers, one short of his single-season high. Add on his Major League debut, and it was a season any player could be happy with. Despite coming back to the majors for a few games in 2019, he didn’t exactly build on last year’s success. Nottingham played in just 83 games for the San Antonio Missions this season. Playing time was hard to come by with veteran catcher David Freitas hitting the crap out of the ball. During that...

Milwaukee Brewers: Should Chase Anderson’s Option Be Picked Up?

The Milwaukee Brewers face a tough option decision on starting pitcher Chase Anderson this offseason. Shortly after a stellar 2017 season, the Milwaukee Brewers signed Chase Anderson to a modest contract extension that included a guaranteed two years for 2018 and 2019 and then two club option years for 2020 and 2021, potentially buying out […] Milwaukee Brewers: Should Chase Anderson’s Option Be Picked Up? - Reviewing the Brew - Reviewing the Brew - A Milwaukee Brewers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Does Yasiel Puig Make Sense for the Milwaukee Brewers?

Adding another outfielder may not be one of the Milwaukee Brewers’ top priorities this offseason, but taking advantage of another slow offseason and bringing in a veteran outfielder like Yasiel Puig could be an outside of the box move that would make a huge impact.

In only three months, CC Sabathia built a lasting legacy in Milwaukee

Photo by Darren Hauck/ The Cream City will never forget his accomplishments in his short time here. I was 16 years old during the summer of 2008. I was still somewhat of a fledgling baseball fan, first really getting into the game in 2005 while spending most of the break between seventh and eighth grade playing MVP Baseball at my friend’s house on his Playstation 2. But whether we start at the outset of my fandom, or go back even further to the beginning of my life, I had never seen the Milwaukee Brewers make the postseason. Fans even older than I was at the time were faced with the...
