Journeyman Clark's gamble paid off with spot on Brewers

MILWAUKEE -- Whether it worked out or not, Matt Clark was going to live with his decision. He was 27 years old and stuck playing in Double-A for an organization with not much use for him beyond minor-league filler. So, Clark asked for and was granted his release on June 25. "You have to sit there and wait or do what I did and take a chance," Clark said. "Without anything else lined...

Three Call-ups Who Could Help Brewers

Roster expansion on September 1 stands as one of the most unique events in all of sports. MLB allows teams to stretch their September rosters from 25 to 40 men, remaining the only major sports league to adjust the roster size in-season. 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...

Fabulous Fiers fans 14 Cubs in Brewers win

It was going to be hard for Mike Fiers to provide a follow-up act as impressive as his return to Milwaukee's starting rotation was last Saturday, when he allowed just one run in eight innings. This time around, Fiers became just the eighth pitcher in the last 100 years to strike out at least 14 batters in six or fewer innings, leading the Brewers to a 6-2 victory over the Chicago...

Bolstering the Brewers’ Bullpen

Baseball fans can discount nearly anything they hear at the trade deadline. Therefore, Milwaukee GM Doug Melvin’s suggestion that he might bolster his bullpen comes with enough grains of salt to fill the Dead Sea. Perhaps Melvin’s comments were merely an elaborate smokescreen designed to conceal his true intentions. Yet despite the unreliability of such statements, an upgrade...

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 and...

The Rap on Reynolds

(From left to right: Lyle Overbay, Hunter Morris and Mark Reynolds.  Image: AP) In the two years since Prince Fielder left Milwaukee for greener American League pastures, the Brewers have gotten some of the league’s worst production from the first base position. Milwaukee first basemen’s .286 on-base percentage ranks last in the majors over that span. From a traditional...

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 MVP...

Brewers Suddenly Have Plenty of Unexceptional But Low-Risk 1B Options

(Image: AP) When Corey Hart signed with Seattle, the prospect of another season with a gaping production hole at first base was dismal to contemplate.  For a while, it seemed like the Brewers’ best hope was a trade for Ike Davis, and the sentiment of fans could probably best be summed up as, “C’mon, Ike Davis?  Well, I guess…”  When the Davis talks went nowhere...

So How Do We Feel About Brewers Winter League Performance?

(Image: Justin K. Aller/Getty Images) I’ve never paid much attention to the Caribbean winter leagues or the Arizona Fall League.  I’m really only familiar with them since they’re mentioned during Brewers broadcasts from time to time.  I’m aware that a popular theory for Jean Segura’s second half decline in 2013 was that he burned himself out playing winter ball, and...
