Milwaukee Brewers Starting Lineup 2018 Brewers Lineup

56-44, 2nd in NL Central

Confirmed Conf

LAD 11 @ MIL 2

Final

Updated:

Milwaukee made a push for a few names this offseason, and they are making the front office look pretty good right now. Travis Shaw isn’t a new name in Milwaukee, but is one of the middle of the order bats that is thriving. Coming over from Boston he has been a power corner bat that is up with the elite plays at third base against right-handed pitching. Milwaukee signed Lorenzo Cain and traded for Christian Yelich, who both have a lot of fantasy upside. Cain has dominated left-handed pitching, but also on the base paths has SB upside, and Milwaukee will run quite a bit. Yelich has been great against right-handed pitching, but can’t quite seem to crack that next tier of fantasy outfielders.

Outlook

Ryan Braun has been the other outfield option, and while production has stumbled a bit, Braun is still one of the better hard-contact hitters on the team. Patience might be wearing thin for those using him hoping he turns things around. Jesus Aguilar and Eric Thames are two huge power bats, but Aguilar has been the most consistent one. Earlier in the season it was hard for him to get regular playing time, but he has played himself right into an everyday role. Manny Pina and Stephen Vogt were supposed to be a platoon catching duo, but Vogt has been injured most of the season. Pina is a respectable bat, but won’t jump out at anyone. Jonathan Villar and Brad Miller are commanding the middle infield, and after that breakout year for Villar, he has not been relevant since then. Miller came over middle of the year and has provided some pop in the middle of the year. Hernan Perez is the utility guy on this team, and can offer up some value when he finds his way into the lineup.
