After struggling in the minors during the first half of the season, Tyler Thornburg's turnaround since being called up to the majors by the Milwaukee Brewers has been remarkable. Sean Halton hit his first career grand slam and Thornburg allowed just two singles over six innings, leading the Brewers to a 7-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday night. Thornburg (3-1) struck...

Sean Halton Has Earned Playing Time at First Base

(Photo: Getty Images) Back in February, before it was known that Corey Hart would be out for the year, I wrote a post lobbying for Sean Halton to get the bulk of playing time at first base, if only to see what the Brewers had in Halton.  Looking back at that post now, it’s funny how the picture of a clean-shaven Halton looks little like the grizzly hero of Sunday’s walk...

Brewers' Sean Halton making most of 'dream' opportunity

Sean Halton was about to enjoy a rare day off at the mall in Nashville with teammates when his phone rang. It was an off-day he was really looking forward to after a long road trip with stops in Iowa and New Orleans. There weren't many things Halton would give up his off-day for, but he had no problem giving up his first day off in 20 days to head to the major leagues for the...

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...
