Milwaukee Brewers outfield prospect Joey Wiemer was in the running for an opening day roster spot after a good spring training, but ultimately the team elected to have him start the year at Triple-A. However, on opening day Luis Urias injured his hamstring and as a result he will require a trip to the injured list. In correspondence Milwaukee has called up Joey Wiemer to play right field. This will push Brian Anderson to third base.
After this news was confirmed, Milwaukee Brewers fans reacted to the news of Joey Wiemer being called up to the big leagues.
Joey Wiemer is headed to Wrigley Field for another big league debut.

Honestly I thought that Abraham Toro was the guy they’d call up since he can play both 2B and 3B to fill Luis Urias role and is a switch hitter. But I am very excited they went with Joey Wiemer and are giving him a legit chance this early. https://t.co/eNS0o66Cfh
