Adamas to Third?? & Other Topics
if Turang is considered ready with the bat, why wouldn’t the Brewers move Adamas to third. This would allow Turang to play his natural position and frankly be more comfortable, which also ought to help his bat. This seems like a very “Brewers like” move.
I believe the banning of the shift will really help Yellich. It seems the number of hard hit balls by Yellich to short center will change from 4-3 outs from short right-center into base hits.
Catcher- I would like to see the team bring back Omar Narviez and pair him with Feliciano. I think Narviez’s OPS will jump with the ban of the shift for the same reason as Yellich, and believe the staff respects his defensive and pitch calling abilities.
With some reinvestment in the pen, combined with a May call up of Frelich and a deal for a veteran or two at the deadline and the Brewers have a shot at making a significant impact in the ‘23 playoffs.
I say get some fresh bodies in the clubhouse and mix up the soup. Do the trades down below and start a bunch of rookies. Trade hiura and rowdy for some prospects or more bullpen arms or a solid bench piece. Hopefully save up some money to pay woody. Lose a lot of power but gain a ton of on base machines.
