Three Call-ups Who Could Help Brewers

These September call-ups figure to play a very different role for the Brewers than they did last year. 2013’s call-ups could gain experience while...

Prospect Watch: Hunter Morris

Two seasons ago down in AA Huntsville, Milwaukee Brewers farmhand Hunter Morris started making a very strong case for himself to be the future first baseman of the Brewers. In fact, several fans were confused as to why the organization didn't give him a shot last season when that position was in shambles. Could he have been more productive than players like Yuniesky Betancourt...

Brewers' Morris ready to compete again at first base

PHOENIX -- One day was all it took for Hunter Morris' first big league spring training to lose normalcy. He was no longer just the intriguing prospect in camp. Eyes suddenly turned to him to rescue a position ravaged by injury. With Corey Hart already down with a knee injury, Mat Gamel suffered a season-ending ACL tear during the first full-squad workout of 2013. Coming off an...

Injuries Equal Opportunity For Hunter Morris

In Milwaukee, Hunter Morris will battle former shortstop Alex Gonzalez and fringe big leaguer Taylor Green for the opening day nod at first base. On paper, it seems like the odds are in his favor. However, Morris’ arbitration clock and Corey Hart‘s timetable for returning to the lineup will weigh heavily in the Brewers decision. For a three-to-four week stopgap, it might not...

Morris Lobby Overlooks Halton’s Perfect Fit

Welly welly well, Mike Carp was dealt to the Red Sox for a PTBNL or cash, which likely proves the Brewers decided not to match or exceed that meager return for the former-Mariner first baseman/DH.  The Brewers had basically said as much Tuesday, indicating they’d try to fill the first-base hole internally.  What the Brewers seem to be looking for, in between the lines, is a stop...

What Are Brewers' Best Options at First with Gamel Out?

(Hunter Morris; Jordan Megenhardt/ In January I posted about Corey Hart’s injury and what it meant for the Brewers. I wrote a lot about how Mat Gamel would once again take the role as the starting first-baseman with the absence of Hart. Even though I really wasn’t a huge fan of Gamel because he really didn’t prove much with his short stints in Milwaukee, I was still...
