Last week it was announced that Brewers bullpen coach Steve Karsay was stepping away from his position. He cited spending more time with family as a big contributing factor. Today, the Brewers announced not only who will be replacing Karsay but also the addition of an infield and assistant hitting coach as well as assistant strength and conditioning specialist. https://twitter.com/Brewers/status/1483470977489063942 None of these additions to the coaching staff should come as a surprise. A new bullpen coach was needed after Karsay stepped down and Jim Henderson was an expected favorite. Henderson pitched for the Crew during his major league career…

This year, the International Signing Period began on January 15th, 2022. For those not familiar, this time is basically a free agent like signing period for international prospects. Prospects are typically very young and often times are in their teenage years, but it is a great opportunity for teams to expand and build minor league depth. The Brewers had $5,721,200 in funds to allocate to international prospects this year. They ended up signing 33 players to start the signing period. Two of the more well known names that committed to the Crew were Jhonny Severino and Johan Barrios. Both are…

Right now, it is easy to be missing baseball. The MLB lockout has snuffed out any news or rumors that typically would be swirling this time of the year. Currently, we all hope that baseball will start on time come opening day in Spring 2022. With the hopes of a full 162 game season in 2022, there are two Brewers records that may be broken. 1) Josh Hader Franchise Saves Total 2022 will be Hader’s sixth major league season. He has won reliever of the year three times throughout his career despite not becoming the Brewers primary closer until 2019.…

Across baseball, the Brewers have one of the most feared pitching staffs. The organization has a knack for developing great pitchers. They also do a great job at finding out what works best for each player in order to make them successful. As a team, the Brewers finished with the third lowest ERA in 2021. The starting rotation is headlined by Cy Young winner Corbin Burnes. Brandon Woodruff finished fifth in Cy Young voting and third starter Freddy Peralta did not pitch enough innings to qualify, but had an incredible season. To round out the rotation are pitchers Adrian Houser…

The calendar has officially flipped to 2022. With the new year, there comes new year’s resolutions or goals. In this article, we will take a look at three goals the Milwaukee Brewers should look to accomplish in 2022. 1) Win the National League Central Since re-joining the National League in 1998, the Brewers have been division champs three times. 2011 marked their first NL Central title, 2018 their second, and most recently 2021. Should the Crew manage to win their fourth division championship in 2022, that would mean that they were division three out of the last five years. In…

The Brewers 2021 season was a fun one in which the 95 win team ended up winning the National League Central and making the play-offs for the fourth consecutive season. Over the course of the season, 61 different players were utilized. This broke the previous franchise record of 53. With that being said, president of baseball operations David Stearns had to orchestrate several moves during the season. Immediately, most think of the trades for Willy Adames, Rowdy Tellez, and Eduardo Escobar. However, there are a plethora of underrated moves that also helped this team. In this article, we will take…

The MLB is currently in a lockout, which means that no major league transactions can occur. Once a new CBA is reached, moves will once again be allowed. There currently is no timeframe for when this will occur, other than hopefully prior to the start of spring training. Prior to the lockout, the Brewers made a handful of under the radar signings. Pitchers J.C. Meja, Hobie Harris, and Trevor Gott were signed along with catchers Pedro Severino and Brett Sullivan. They also struck a pair of trades, one of which brought super utility infielder Mike Brosseau to the club. Lastly,…

Despite the MLB being in a lockout, rumors can still swirl. Recently, Joel Sherman wrote in an article that the Brewers reportedly had interest in first basemen Luke Voit and checked in on his availability. MLB trade rumors put together a synapsis of Joel Sherman’s article. In the article, he was speculating about options for the Yankee’s to consider post-lockout. He specifically states that “Milwaukee had interest in Voit previously”. He never says when the Brewers inquired about Voit. However, he did provide his rationale for a hypothetical trade that would send Voit to the Brewers in return for Lorenzo…

Just a day after the non-tender deadline and mere hours after the announcement that the MLB will enter a lockout starting December 2nd, the Brewers struck a deal with the Boston Red Sox. In this trade they sent Jackie Bradley Jr back to his former team along with prospects David Hamilton and Alex Binelas. Hunter Renfroe was the player acquired in return. https://twitter.com/Brewers/status/1466263389068484609 JBJ had a very disappointing one year stint with the Brewers and as a result was a trade candidate this off-season. The biggest obstacle was finding a suitable partner to take on the remainder of his contract.…

Activity in baseball has been crazy this year leading up to the non-tender deadline. This is solely due to ongoing collective bargaining agreements in which all signs are pointing to a lockout this off-season. Due to this, the non-tender deadline was moved up to November 30th. This year, the Brewers elected to non-tender first basemen Daniel Vogelbach and pitcher John Curtiss. https://twitter.com/WillSammon/status/1465848402890137611 Vogelbach was a fan favorite while in Milwaukee. Unfortunately for him, he ended up losing the first base job last year due to injury. As a result of his injury, the Brewers traded for Rowdy Tellez who ended…
