We’ve all been waiting for this to happen. But we didn’t think it would be exciting news like this! The Milwaukee Brewers announced Tuesday that a group of outfielders and top prospects in Garrett Mitchell, Joey Wiemer, and Sal Frelick were all Nashville bound. The rumors started to fly around Sunday after someone had reportedly talked to the trio and heard they were heading to the Sounds. However, it wasn’t made official by the Nashville Sounds until Tuesday morning. Sounds fans! Can we give a warm Nashville welcome to @SalFrelick, @GarretMitchell5 and @JWiems17?

The Milwaukee Brewers and their minor league system is truly something else. Tons of young talent making their way through the system to get their major league debut. Things seem to have worked out, seeing as Milwaukee just signed Aaron Ashby to a five-year contract extension.

As long as they’re able to lock in the young talent early, it’ll help the Brewers build the future of…

It’s been over 20 games since Christian Yelich started batting lead off. From this, there has been effective improvement from the 2018 NL MVP. What’s changed? Is it Yelich? Is it the spot in the lineup? Whatever it is, it’s exactly what both the Brewers and Yelich needed for their success. What does this mean for the Brewers? This version of Christian Yelich isn’t his 2018/2019 self, but things are definitely looking up for him. The beginning of the season wasn’t what fans really wanted from Yelich, seeing how 2021 wasn’t exactly prime for him either. It did take a…

The Milwaukee Brewers have held first place in the NL Central for a good portion of the season. Players continually show out and be a name to talk about. Tyrone Taylor has definitely been one of those players. Tyrone Taylor was drafted in the 2nd round of the MLB Draft to Milwaukee a whole decade ago. While it took some time for Taylor to get up in the big leagues, he made his major league debut in September of 2019. Since then, he’s been a force to be reckoned with, and it doesn’t look like he’s stopping any time soon.…

It was a nail-biting game to watch on Wednesday for Milwaukee. Following their Game 5 victory, the Bucks are back home at Fiserv Forum to hopefully seal a trip to the Eastern Conference Finals. The Bucks have struggled a little bit throughout the course of this series, leaving fans a little nervous at times. Coming off of game 5 where Milwaukee came up late, there’s no room for that in a match that matters most. The Deer District is going to be loud and excited, and if Friday’s game is anything like Wednesday, they’ll be on their toes the entire…
