Christian Yelich wins Hank Aaron Award

It’s the second year in a row that he’s taken home the honor.

Offensive excellence.

Baseball America ranks two Brewers among Pioneer League top-20 prospects

A catcher and a teenage outfielder garner attention.

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...

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....

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...

Milwaukee Brewers headed for free agency

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...

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...

He’s a repeat ranking from a previous list.

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 Class A affiliate for the Milwaukee Brewers — the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers — plays in the Midwest League, and this year BA ranked one Brew Crew minor leaguer among the top-20 prospects on that circuit.

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...

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....

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,...

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.

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...

On the Senior Circuit, the reigning winner of the award — lefty Josh Hader of our Milwaukee Brewers — will get the opportunity to convince voters that he is worthy of the honor for a second consecutive season.

Another down season for the third base prospect

There was a decent belief that 2019 was going to be Lucas Erceg’s bounce back year. After a season that saw a dip in the third baseman’s power production and an awful month after a ball struck him in the face, there was enough optimism around Erceg to believe he could do better. The fans believed so and voted the lefty a top-ten Milwaukee Brewers prospect heading into this year. Unfortunately, Erceg...

2019 Most Valuable Brewer #6: Keston Hiura

It’s not a secret that the Milwaukee Brewers don’t exactly have a sterling record at the top of the draft in the recent past. Sure, the team has selected three 10+ bWAR players in the first round of the draft since 2008, but each of those draftees — #16 overall Brett Lawrie in 2008 (15.1 WAR), #32 overall in 2008 Jake Odorizzi (13.3), and #38 overall Mitch Haniger (10.7) — have accrued...
