MILWAUKEE-After overcoming the COVID panic on the eve of the opening day, the brewer set up an initial roster of 26 people on Thursday without any final surprises.
Infielder Luis Urías and substitute Drew Rasmussen both advanced for the first time on the opening day of their careers. They are part of a 12-stroke posture for 14 athletes and may change during the first few weeks of the regular season. Currently, winemakers can reduce the number of dispatched personnel because they have rest days in the first four weeks of the season (starting on Friday).
Here is the team that the winemaker will face against the Twins at the American Family Court on Thursday:
Catcher (2): Omar Narváez, Manny Piña
Both winemakers’ catchers have excellent springs, which is promising considering Narváez’s regression in 2020 and Piña’s return from knee surgery. Luke Maile started the season as the third choice of the season, while Jacob Nottingham continued to slowly come back from offseason thumb surgery. He started the new year in Illinois.
First base (2): Keston Hiura, Daniel Vogelbach
Since there is no designated shooter in the national league this year, Vogelbach, who has limited defense, has a narrow path to the opening day. But the winemaker has decided to keep him and told Vogelbach on the last weekend of the camp.
Manager Craig Counsell said: “This is the bat.”
“Although he is not used much in the game, this is only a role, but he will become a happy hitter.” That is his main job. There will be some first basemen there, but Keston is our first baseman.It will try to get [Vogelbach] There is a big bat every night. “
Second base (1): Melting man
Wong is known for his “Golden Glove” caliber defense, he showed some power on the plate with three leading home runs in spring training. Brewers believe that there will be more family farms in the United States.
Third base (1): Travis Shaw
Run Run Shaw hit .190 with 42 shots in spring training, but reached the bottom with .320 hits and showed enough blasting for Brewer to get him in the top position. Hope Can get players for 30 consecutive seasons and Milwaukee base runs in 2017 and 2018. Orlando Arcia and/or Luis Urías and Daniel Robertson are challengers for his playing time.
Shortstop (2): Luis Urias, Orlando
Brewer didn’t see as many Urías they wanted this spring because he suffered from a hamstring injury, but he is healthy now, while Arcia’s spring performance is not good. Both sides will see time in the shortstops this season, but Urias seems to be at the top of the depth chart. Robertson can also be a shortstop.
Outfield (5): Jackie Bradley, Christian Yelich, Lorenzo Cain, Avisaíl García, Billy Mai Billy McKinney
It was a critical juncture at the end, but Bradley and Cain returned to health on the opening day, safely reaching six times in Saturday’s game against the Royals and winning five consecutive victories-Brewers Hope This becomes a glimpse of a regular event in this season. The Brewers will continue to maintain a cautious attitude with Cain, who has only conducted 15 bat training games in Arizona due to limb injuries after missing most of the shortened 2020 season. In the end, Cain could become the main midfield scorer, and Bradley began to start with the center and Garcia in the row on the right. The left-handed McKinney had four home runs in Arizona and tied for the captain, and can also hit first base if needed. He won the final spot for the batsman.
Utility (1): Daniel Robertson
Versatile players such as Tim Lopes and Mark Mathias were injured, making Robertson a very important player for the winemaker this season. He can play the whole game, just like McKinney, he has no choice.
Brent Suter made some starts last year, and it is possible to mention it again, as can Drew Rasmussen. But in terms of the Triple-A spin depth, some of the top brewers’ choices (Zach Brown, Alec Beddinger, Dylan Phil, Thomas Jenkins) suffered various injuries in the spring and did not get The help you deserve. The Brewers recently signed veteran Zack Godley, who will be stretched as a starter. After a brief release, Jordan Zimmermann will also renew another minor league deal with Milwaukee, as will Jordan Zimmermann.
Pressure relief valve (7): Josh Hader, Devin Williams, Eric Yardley, Brent Suter, Josh Lindblom, Drew Rasmussen, JP Feyereisen
The focus of this group was Lindblom’s participation in the bullpen on the opening day, Black came back from a sore elbow (he hit 99 mph on Saturday night against the Giants), Boxberger and Zimmermann’s release and re-signature, and agreed to ask if asked There were other training locations, and Topa was unfortunately injured. Maybe the question mark is Rasmussen, not because of his ability-the winemaker loves his arm and plans to use him in multiple games-but because he and JP Fejelsen both have minor league options. It looks like Rasmussen, Feyereisen or Boxberger at this time. We will get to know with Rasmussen. They will all see Major League Baseball in 2021. time.
“Obviously, Justin has the potential to fight for some of the overall situation for us, so this is a loss,” Kuenser said. “People will always make up for losses, but these losses will definitely disappear in your depths. Justin provided us with some important support at the end of last year, and I think he is capable of doing this. [again]. Hope we can get good news, and he can talk about it again. “
List of injuries (6): Derek Fisher, Tim Lopes, Mark Mathias, Jacob Nottingham, Justin Topa ), Bobby Wahl
Fisher fell due to a strained left hamstring, and Lopes (obliques) and Mathias (shoulders) have been in IL for 60 days. Nottingham has been hitting and receiving the ball in the fence game, but he occasionally encounters setbacks, so the winemaker has always paid attention to his receiving in the game. As of Sunday, Topa’s status is pending, but he is subject to IL. Val sagged due to diagonal pull to the right. Also pay close attention to the condition of Taylor’s injured thigh.
