The list of great Milwaukee Brewers pitching prospects who panned out in the major leagues in the 2000s starts with Yovani Gallardo and, well, it pretty much ends right there.

The Call-Up: Junior Guerra

Normally these types of articles are reserved for minor leaguers that are considered “top prospects,” but that’s never really been the case for Junior Guerra of the Milwaukee Brewers. However the journeyman opened up plenty the eyes within the organization with an excellent showing in the minor leagues for the White Sox last season and is certainly an intriguing pitcher...

Game 25 Recap: Brewers 8 Angels 5

TOP PLAY: On Sunday, the Brewers laid the beat down on the Marlins, scoring 14 runs. The Brewers were back in action on Monday; while they didn’t score 14 runs, they still put up a quality offensive performance, scoring 8.

ESPN Power Rankings Week 4: Brewers Move Up One Spot

Another week that wasn’t too friendly to the Brewers. Outside of yesterday’s coming out party with 14 runs against the Marlins, the offense has faded a bit, as I hinted at in my comments this week to ESPN. Despite not playing their best, the Brewers moved up one spot to No. 27: A drought of wins has brought change to Milwaukee’s pitching rotation. A poor outing against the...

Milwaukee Brewers: Ryan Braun playing his way onto trade block

Only 22 days into the Milwaukee Brewers’ 2011 season, one that will forever be recognized by a banner in left field at Miller Park which reads “NL Central Champions,” Ryan Braun signed a $145.5 million deal through 2020 which was meant to make him a Brewer for life.

Milwaukee Brewers: Wily Peralta a cause for concern

The Milwaukee Brewers currently hold a 7-11 overall record in their first full year of a potentially long, painful rebuilding process. When this meticulous process does reach what could be a very entertaining conclusion, starting pitcher Wily Peralta seems to be the best fit for the “ace” role. However, through four starts in 2016, the 26-year-old is really struggling and remains...
