Fantasy Team Preview: Milwaukee Brewers

0

J.P. Breen

Thump and speed in the lineup make up for a mediocre rotation and a possible by-committee closer situation.

The Milwaukee Brewers are an intriguing club for fantasy owners. The squad lacks any obvious flops who project to receive significant playing time. At worst, mediocrity should reign supreme—especially in the starting rotation—but one can reasonably expect above-average production at almost every offensive position. That’s what makes the Brewers attractive for owners; however, that’s also the reason why the Brew Crew could compete for an NL postseason berth, despite being forgotten by the masses due to a quiet offseason.

A note for our readers. While informative, since we are still months away from pitchers and catchers reporting to spring training, these previews are far from definitive or complete. Free agent signings, trades, and other offseason news will change the landscape for most if not all teams. For any moves that take place after a team preview is written, please look to our Transaction Analysis coverage for instant reactions, and then check back on the Team Previews for more detailed updates (including lineups, rotations, bullpens, etc.) as we get closer to Opening Day.

The arduous job of sticking with a client through thin.

Jaye Chapman is a professional baseball player. I first scouted him while I was a student at FSU and he was a student at Chipola Junior College. Jaye was an Atlanta Braves draft-and-follow, back when those still existed. I had the pleasure of seeing him pitch against Lorenzo Cain and Michael Saunders at Tallahassee Community College in 2004; Jaye’s teammates on Chipola that day included Rene Tosoni, Tyler Flowers, and Mat Gamel. That’s six major leaguers on one junior college field.

2015 Prospects: Milwaukee Brewers Top 10 Prospects

Nick J. Faleris and BP Prospect Staff

Once a system lacking impact, the Brewers have been aggressive in the international market and gone for high-upside athletes in the draft, leading to an intriguing group of talent.

Pitching Backward: In Love With Lohse

1

Jeff Long

A pitcher, a plan, and one great big metaphor.

After three weeks of reading this column (you all read this column on a weekly basis, right?) you probably have some expectations. When my editor and I were discussing column names, he liked this one, saying it suggests that I'll look at things a bit differently, with an emphasis on pitching. "Pitching Backward" just kind of fits.

Now, I’m no fool, I can sense what you’re all thinking. It’s been three weeks and I have yet to actually talk about pitching backward. That all changes today. I know, the excitement is palpable.

An Agent's Take: So Long, Scout

4

Joshua Kusnick

The author remembers 'a Hall of Fame scout if there ever was one.'

This past week my friend Bruce Seid, the Milwaukee Brewers scouting director, passed away. This is not the first time I lost a friend who was a scout. Rolando Casanova of the Detorit Tigers passed away earlier this year, as well. Bruce and Caz were both under 60 and passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. We work in show business, and death rarely creeps into our thoughts, but when it comes it hits like a sledgehammer. I want to use this column to talk about my friend and give the world a behind-the-scenes look at what a failed draft situation looks like.

An Agent's Take: The Small World

13

Joshua Kusnick

Client poaching, Instagram, hunting gear endorsements, and the rest of the things that a small agency thinks about.

July was a very satisfying month. A couple months ago, I wrote about going through the free agent process with my client, Jeremy Jeffress. Late in July, Jeremy was added to the Brewers’ 40-man roster and called up to the big leagues again. In his first outing, against Cincinnati, his first pitch was clocked at 98. His last was 101. The outing went as well as it possibly could have and Jeremy has since thrown 8 2/3 innings while allowing only one run. When the Brewers came to Tampa and I got to catch up in person with Jeremy for the first time since April, Adam McCalvey caught a great moment in my career:

Painting the Black: The Stealth Steals

1

R.J. Anderson

Reviewing the transactions we didn't write about but, in retrospect, wish we had.

Although we've published more than 100 Transaction Analysis columns since November, the reality is not every signing or waiver claim gets covered. Most of those missed transactions amount to nothing, but a few result in larger impacts than expected. Here are five uncovered moves that yielded good returns during the first half, along with what we would have written if we had covered them at the time, and what we should have written if we'd focused on exactly the right details.
