Of the pitchers who were reassigned, Lucas Erceg and Tyler Herb each appeared in three games whereas Tobias Myers and Thomas Pannone had two.
Erceg, who has an incredible story of being 32 months sober, gave up three earned runs, two hits, and four walks during 2.2 innings pitched. Herb was not scored upon in the same amount of innings. Tobias Myers threw two innings for the Brewers, struck out five, and allowed two earned runs. Pannone allowed one earned run over 1.2 innings pitched.
Of the position players, Monte Harrison played in eight of the ten total games. He collected just one hit (.091 AVG), and struck out in seven of his 11 at-bats. Quero, a top catching prospect, played in two games and got just three at-bats.
Along with these roster cuts, the Brewers will have players leaving to play in the 2023 World Baseball Classic. In total 15 Milwaukee players will be representing their country. The WBC starts on March 7.
