This week at Brewer Fanatic, we’re going to preview some of the key battles for positions and roster spots that will unfold during spring training. Today’s subject is the fifth rotation spot, a battle that just gained greater clarity in the worst possible way.
The Milwaukee Brewers' offense was better than its raw numbers might have indicated last season, but they could be endlessly frustrating. The culprit, and the thing the team most needs to shift going into 2023, might be an insufficient ability in an increasingly neglected column of the stat sheet.
Baseball is a game of round numbers and milestones. Somehow, some way, 39 feels so much closer to Opening Day than 40. Brewers By the (Jersey) Numbers has reached the 30s, as one month away is suddenly appearing over the crest of the hill ahead.
