The Next Step for Keon Broxton and Domingo Santana

Last year, only one team improved their exit velocity in the second half as much as the Brewers did, when they went from 17th in the league to fifth. That might not surprise you, because you’ve read often about the young power duo on that team — Keon Broxton and Domingo Santana — and those two were at their healthiest and most dynamic in the second half. And yet the team was...

Broxton homers, Erceg hits walkoff single in Brewers 3-2 win

Zack Cozart, among a few veterans who haven't been traded away from the Reds, hit a no-doubt home run on the second spring pitch he saw. Cozart tore two ligaments and a tendon in his right knee while running out a ground ball midway through the 2015 season. He returned last year but was limited to 121 games because of soreness in the knee. Milwaukee leadoff hitter Keon Broxton homered...

How Keon Broxton Looks Like the Brewers’ Best Player

I’ve encouraged you to believe in Keon Broxton before. In baseball-game terms, that wasn’t even very long ago. So you could accuse me here of being unoriginal, but I’ve prepared a counterargument. For one thing, it’s January, shut up. For a second thing, I bet a lot of you missed my previous summary. And for a third thing, now there’s some new information. This is a Keon...

Can Keon Broxton Make Enough Contact?

Out of nowhere, center fielder Keon Broxton has made a case for himself as Milwaukee’s best player in August. He has four homers and 11 stolen bases in just 24 games this month, and his .414 OBP leads all Brewers regulars to go with a .292 batting average and a .514 slugging percentage. After going 0-for-16 in his first stint with the big club in April, Broxton has turned his season...

All Aboard the Keon Broxton Bandwagon

Sometimes things don’t work out. For example, this morning, I dropped my bagel when I was climbing the stairs. Had things gone according to plan, I would have not dropped my bagel when I was climbing the stairs. Unfortunate for me. Arguably unfortunate for the bagel. And then, sometimes, things do work out.
