On the 12th episode of DFA, Zach Crizer's back to join R.J. in talking about the National League Central ... which of course means discussing the Brewers and their new load of upcoming talent.

The Call-Up: Lewis Brinson

0

Kate Morrison and Mike Gianella

Hey look, another top prospect headed to Milwaukee.

The Situation: Though they entered the year with inscrutable expectations, the Brewers find themselves on top of the heap that is the NL Central. Recently, however, they’ve had several of their key hitters go down with injury (Ryan Braun, Jonathan Villar) leading to the promotion of one of their top prospects, Lewis Brinson. Luckily for the Brewers, Villar’s injury came right after the projected Super 2 deadline, meaning they’ll get to pay Brinson less when it comes to arbitration.

The Background: The Brewers acquired Brinson in 2016 from the Rangers in the Jonathan Lucroy trade, alongside pitcher Luis Ortiz and, later, outfielder Ryan Cordell. The Rangers drafted Brinson in their loaded 2012 class out of Coral Springs high school in Florida, taking the lanky outfielder with their first-round pick, 29th overall.

The Call-Up: Josh Hader

0

Jeffrey Paternostro and George Bissell

The hard-throwing lefty takes his fastball/slider combo to the Brewers' bullpen, for now.

The Situation: The pipeline of prospects keeps coming in Milwaukee. Shortly after calling up Brett Phillips, the Brewers have added their top pitching prospect Josh Hader to the bullpen mix.

The Background: Hader was the Orioles' 19th-round draft pick in 2012. A local prep arm, he burst onto prospect radars with a dominant professional debut in short-season ball that summer. His full-season debut went swimmingly as well. Hader struck out nearly a batter per inning as a 19-year-old in the South Atlantic League before he was dealt to the Astros at the deadline as part of the Bud Norris package. The lefty wasn’t done wandering yet, though (he even looks the part of a well-traveled roadie).

The Call-Up: Brett Phillips

1

Wilson Karaman

He's bringing a 70-grade arm to Milwaukee.

The Situation: With Travis Shaw heading out on paternity leave, Ryan Braun still hurt, and Keon Broxton scuffling once again, the Brewers called up the most big-league ready of their collection of high-end outfield prospects.

The Background: A sixth-round prep pick by the Astros in 2012, Brett Phillips was a standout athlete in high school whose football mentality quickly showed itself on the baseball field. After a nondescript full professional debut in 2013, Phillips raked his way through the Midwest and California Leagues in 2014, then kept right on hitting after a promotion to Double-A in the late spring of 2015.

This season is old enough to know better, but some early hitting performances really stand out.

I know it’s still too early in the season to draw meaningful conclusions about much of anything because my beloved Twins have a winning record, but we are far enough along that only seven hitters with 100 or more plate appearances are beating their 90th percentile PECOTA projections by at least 200 points of OPS. Two of those seven, Bryce Harper and Freddie Freeman, are great hitters off to especially strong starts, leaving five genuine, out-of-nowhere surprises among full-time position players. By the end of the season they may all have turned back into pumpkins, but in the meantime my curiosity is piqued.

How did Eric Thames change in Korea? And what do you learn from being Barry Bonds?

The tale of Eric Thames is growing taller by the day. Complete with inane steroid accusations, ballin’ body armor, and mesmerizing one-handed warm-up cuts, the reappearance and ascendance of this exceedingly fit man owes much of its mystique to the time he spent offscreen.

We are told that in this great unknown time, Thames—who, when we last we saw him, was a Quad-A player—did to the Korean Baseball Organization over three years what he’s done to the Cincinnati Reds' pitching staff for the past three weeks. We are told that he so demolished the conventional notions of baseball dominance, especially in his 47-homer, 40-steal 2015 season, that his nickname among KBO fans was simply, “God.”

Flu-Like Symptoms: One Not-So-Fine Day

For which pitchers did a few bad outings color our perception?

Mitchel Lichtman (aka MGL), sabermetrician and co-author of The Book, recently had a post on his blog that I liked a lot for two reasons.

The remainder of this post cannot be viewed at this subscription level. Please click here to subscribe.

Which young pitchers does PECOTA see as having breakout potential in 2017?

“Breakout” can mean different things to different people. It can mean a prospect or untested young big leaguer establishing himself as a valuable regular. It can mean a relative unknown becoming an impact player. It can mean a well-known star making the leap to full-blown superstar, perhaps even following up a “breakout” one year with an even bigger “breakout” the next. Your own definition may vary, but in PECOTA’s case “breakout” is all about out-performing track records.

PECOTA assigns each player a “breakout rate” for the upcoming season based on their odds of beating their established level of recent performance by at least 20 percent, with historical player comps serving as an important factor. Because the entire system is based on regressed-to-the-mean, 50th percentile projections, breakout rate identifies the players most likely to leave that in the dust for their 70th, 80th, and 90th percentile upsides.
