  • Brewers Add Four Players to 40-Man Roster

    With the deadline about 90 minutes away, the Brewers announced that they have added infielder Brice Turang and bullpen arm Abner Uribe to their 40-man roster. Then ten minutes before the deadline, they also announced the additions of reliever Cam Robinson and first baseman Jon Singleton.

    Just before the 5:00 central time deadline, the Brewers announced that, in addition to adding RH RP Abner Uribe and infielder Brice Turang to their 40-man roster, they will also be adding relief Cam Robinson and first baseman Jon Singleton

    Turang is the son of a former big leaguer and has consistently moved up the organizational ladder since the Brewers made him their first-round draft pick in 2018 out of high school in Corona, California. He spent the entire 2022 season at Triple-A Nashville. He will turn 23 years old this weekend. 

    Uribe, on the other hand, made just two appearances for Double-A Biloxi in early April before his season came to an end. He did return and pitched for Glendale in the Arizona Fall League and pitched well enough, and proved himself healthy enough for the Brewers to feel comfortable adding him. 

    Robinson was drafted in 2017 and had his struggles early, but he broke out in 2022. He pitched well at both Wisconsin and Biloxi before ending the season at Triple-A Nashville. He's got potentially dominant stuff that could work out of the bullpen. 

    The surprise may be the addition of slugger Jon Singleton. He spent all of 2022 with Nashville and provided a lot of homers and a lot of strikeouts. At the end of the World Series, he became a free agent but quickly re-signed with the Brewers. Now today he has been added to the big-league roster. Considering his past in the game, this does sure have the makings a really special human interest story by March! 

     

    There are several players that are now at risk of being selected in the Rule 5 draft including infields Felix Valerio and Eduardo Garcia, outfielder Carlos Rodriguez, pitchers Victor Castaneda, Justin Jarvis and others. 

    What do you think about the Brewers additions? Which prospects are you most concerned that the team could lose?

    While more moves can be made before the 5:00 central time deadline, the Brewers did officially announce two additions to their 40-man roster, RH RP Abner Uribe and infielder Brice Turang. 

    Turang is the son of a former big leaguer and has consistently moved up the organizational ladder since the Brewers made him their first-round draft pick in 2018 out of high school in Corona, California. He spent the entire 2022 season at Triple-A Nashville. He will turn 23 years old this weekend. 

    Uribe, on the other hand, made just two appearances for Double-A Biloxi in early April before his season came to an end. He did return and pitched for Glendale in the Arizona Fall League and pitched well enough, and proved himself healthy enough for the Brewers to feel comfortable adding him.

    Turang and Uribe were expected. Both of them would be sure-fire selections by another team in the Rule 5 draft. Looking forward them making an impact starting next year. 

    Somewhat surprised they didn't protect Cam Robinson. He's another flamethrower who could potentially make an impact next year and serves as relief depth. Guess we'll have to cross our fingers that he isn't selected. 

    I'm indifferent on the other guys and wouldn't be that disappointed to see them go. Valerio is one of the more overrated guys in our system imo.

    Disappointed they didn't add Robinson because I think he will get selected and believe he would have been recalled at some point next season by the Brewers anyways. Not even considering the tender/non tender pitching candidates I would rather have Robinson on the 40 man over Jason Alexander/Trevor Kelley/Tyson Miller.

    Robinson got hit pretty hard once promoted to AAA, so they might think teams don’t think he’s ready for the leap to the big-leagues.

    Can Devanney could easily get taken. 25/26, close to big-league ready, power, good defender. It’s quite the gamble to leave him unprotected, imo.

    Robinson is the big surprise. He was behind the other two, but I still would have put him at 90% to get protected. Devanney is the only position player I could see getting taken because he has position versatility and pop, even if he is a bit on the older side for a prospect.

    I am also surprised on Robinson. To be honest, Uribe doesn't have numbers that stand out neither. Yes you have to use a 40 man roster spot to protect them, but they can easily be outrighted. 

    Uribe's stuff is second to none for a reliever and he's literally just coming off a dominating performance in the AFL after being injured for essentially the whole season. No way he's making it through Rule 5 or waivers.

    Singleton is a surprise.  Some guys in Indy ball probably could put up numbers in AAA similar to his.  I saw one playing for Winnipeg last summer..  He was one time Cardinals farmhand David Washington, a big lefty bat with enormous power.  Maybe the new shift rules adds to their value.

    Thanks for the information I only knew him from his stats

    Yeah, Uribe is as untouchable as it gets. You don't let a guy who regularly sits 98-99 and touches 101 with some nasty breaking stuff sit idly by while the Tampa Bay Rays find a way to scoop him up for their Big League roster. Uribe dominanced in the AFL: 0 runs allowed over six weeks with massive K numbers. What's more? I'm fairly certain he was working on a secondary fastball grip in Arizona too. I can't confirm this. I haven't seen it confirmed. BUT, I'm fairly certain he was working on multiple grips in Arizona. There's a lot in his toolkit and I would surmise he's adding to it.

    Also, I said it all summer in my Minor League Reports:

    Jon Singleton: really talented baseball player.

    Did I think he'd be protected from the Rule 5 draft? Heck no. Am I disappointed? Absolutely not. Incredibly underrated defense and hands. Always a threat to go long off a righty. Always a threat to grab a free pass - he set the Sounds single season record for walks in 2022.

    Cam Robinson scuffled and struggled some in his promotions to Double and Triple-A, respectively. BUT, let us not forget: when he is on he is very on. He did throw an immaculate inning in Nashville. It's fairly evident the Brewers know they have something here. Lively arm. Lotta violence in his delivery. Saves leader across all of Minor League baseball in 2022 so he is capable of handling big moments. I expect bigger and better things as he gets more experience.

    I am saddened they didn't ensure Devanney's protection. Extremely underrated talent. If he gets nabbed, I'm going to be fairly bummed. He made my ritual nightly Brewers Minor League viewings (especially in Biloxi) more enjoyable. He has a bright future - I just hope it's with the Crew.

    So Singleton hass already on 23 OD roster?? Uhh ok.

    I think it is more of a hypothetical than anything else.  Also I don't see the Brewers playing in FA for a 1B or a DH.  I think the Brewers are going to go reliever heavy in FA.

    Singleton provides some insurance in case the Brewers find a taker for Tellez in order to reduce payroll.  Other than that I think he is a AAAA type player.  Who knows, maybe they strike gold with him, but I think its highly unlikely.

    I'm fairly confident Devanney will sneak through the draft but will be bummed if he gets picked.  I see him as a solid Utility player as a floor with an average starting 3B at peak.  That has a lot of value.

    Against righties, Singleton had a .400+ OBP & .500+ SLG. It's a weird add but there is a path to Singleton getting PT

    Is the path over Rowdy's dead body?

    Does them not using the last 40 man slot suggest they hope to take someone?

    Doubt it, they will sign more guys before Spring Training plus there will be more room on Friday as they won't be tendering a contract to all of their guys.
