Another week, another week at the No. 21 spot in ESPN’s Power Rankings. The Brewers just couldn’t muster enough of a performance to boost into that top-2o position they’ve been battling for all year. However, some key notes: Zach Davies continued to show development on the track to 2017. You couldn’t really ask for much more out of Davies — he wasn’t a top notch prospect...

Although many pegged the Brewers to own yet another top-5 selection in the draft, they have arguably been the best rebuilding team in the league. Owning a 70-86 record, they have nearly cemented themselves as a non-last place team, as one win ensures them at least 4th place in the NL Central. While catching up to the Pirates is a near-impossibility, the Crew has begun to shut...

The Brewers announced this past week that Junior Guerra’s season is over, thankfully not due to a aggravation of the injury that forced him to miss nearly a month, but simply due to the 31-year-old reaching an innings limit. The #2016BrewersAce finishes his first season as a major league starter with a stellar 2.81 ERA and a 9-3 record backed up by an even 100 strikeouts over 121...

Obviously, these players outnumber the surprises; if they didn’t, the Brewers wouldn’t find themselves in fourth place. But of the...
When the 2016 season began, Domingo Santana’s stock was rising. He had been acquired in the middle of the season as a key part of the Mike Fiers/Carlos Gomez trade, and his cup of coffee with the Brewers was successful. He posted a .299 TAv in 38 games with Milwaukee after his call-up, and he handled himself reasonably competently in center field. He looked to have a decent shot...
