At the end of Spring Training, Keston Hiura was designated for assignment. He later would clear waivers and get sent to Triple-A Nashville. Over the weekend, Hiura batted .400, one home run, 3 RBIs, and a 1.625 OPS. Brewers fans looked at this and wonder if Keston could still be the guy we thought he was in 2019 and 2020.
Is there a spot for Keston?
The Brewers have a lot of young prospects that can play at the big league level. The Brewers have Luke Voit and fan favorite Rowdy Tellez at first base. The Brewers currently have an exciting young player Brice Turang at second base and an already crowded outfield. Keston could play second base and a bit of outfield but it seems like Hiura is lost in the shuffle. He has struggled at the plate in years past, so now fans have lost most hope for him.
How can Keston get back on track?
As it sits right now, Keston will spend most of the year in Triple-A. He has proved he can hit at the Triple-A level, but he has yet to be able to show it in the big leagues again. Keston’s only option might be riding out his time with Milwaukee and hoping for a different team to give him a chance. Not to mention, new scenery and a team with not-so-crowded spots could work for him. However, he is still young and is still learning the game. Unfortunately, it looks like Milwaukee is done with the Keston experiment.
