Throw as many of these guys against a wall as you can, and see what sticks I suppose. Ironic that in signing White and Singleton, the Brewers now employ a big portion of the Astros 1B depth chart from 6-7 years ago.

 

[sarcasm]Hmm... I wonder why that might be...[/sarcasm] :laughing

Not knowing the payroll restraints, I have no expectation that they'll be able to make a major acquisition. So while another year of hodgepodge first basemen wouldn't be exciting, it wouldn't be surprising. They've done pretty well scrap heaping together the position the past few years with guys like Tellez, Vogelbach, Gyorko, Aguilar, and Thames. Since 2017, those guys have contributed to the Brewers having the 13th best WAR in MLB at first base, and contributed to a team that has made the playoffs 4 of 5 years and totaled the 7th most wins in MLB.

 

So I'm not sure history shows that Stearns values making a splash at first base and he's been able to get by without doing so. That said, it is definitely a position that they could add a real impact bat if they have the resources to do so and I would LOVE for them to figure out a way to get Matt Olson on this team.

A reminder that the only additions that can be made right now are minor league ones so please refrain from sweeping conclusions that the Brewers are done making significant additions. Goodness, it's bad enough when people think the roster is set in December of a normal offseason. With it being literally impossible to add major leaguers currently, the hand wringing is bound to tip new scales around here soon.

I actually wouldn't mind White as a part time 1B/DH to start the season because I only really care about who is playing there after the trade deadline this year
I tried to log in on my iPad. Turns out it was an etch-a-sketch and I don't own an iPad. Also, I'm out of vodka.

He's probably just a AAAA at this point but he was a guy who seemed to always be buried behind some players in the depth chart early on in Houston and then had a cold stretch on a good team after he had shown some promise.

 

Not too unlike Tellez actually. There are worse hitters getting MLB AB's so hopefully he's got something to offer off the bench or at least some insurance at AAA.

tyler white is out of minor league options and has been outrighted to the minor leagues before.

 

when officially announced, the brewers will have 14 non-roster invitees for 2022 spring training.

deal was officially announced yesterday. 14 non-roster invitees for 2022 camp.

Welcome MPM!

 

I think White is a depth/wildcard piece at this point. But if the DH is implemented and he has a big Spring, he could get some serious consideration. That said, I think you're correct that they will ideally be looking outside the organization for an upgrade at 1st, moving Rowdy into a backup/DH role, first before banking on White or a Huira comeback to start the season.
