There has been lots of news today for the Milwaukee Brewers including a Luke Voit signing and the Brewers’ opening day roster is now complete. Here are the final moves that were made.
The Rule 5 Pick left the Brewers a tough choice and they ultimately decided to keep him on the team. After struggling in AA last season the 26-year-old has been impressed this spring. Varland will likely have a multi-inning role out of the bullpen for the Brewers and needs to remain on the roster all season or he will be offered back to the Dodgers.
These never get old.

Turang has been a highly regarded prospect in the Brewers organization for a long time. After having a stellar spring training posting a .282/.349/.385 slash line the 23-year-old found his way onto the roster. Turang should be a regular at 2nd base against right-handed pitching as the Brewers want to get him plenty of at-bats.

The final spot for the opening day roster came down to Miller and Wiemer. Miller ultimately won the spot most likely because he is already on the 40-man roster. Though the Wisconsin Alumn did have a solid spring posting a .385/.429/.487 slash line and showing his versatility playing in center field.
Opening Day is just a few days away and it will be exciting to see how these decisions impact the Brewers on opening day.
