The Brewer power ranking is a composite score that considers on the field as well as off the field activities. Do we really need a Brewer player power ranking? Of course we do.
Yovani makes it two weeks in a row and deservingly so, Gallardo is king of the rankings.
2: Ryan Braun’s thumb
There is so much mystery around Braun’s thumb and how this will impact the right fielder’s season.
3: Khris Davis
Note to over reactors, Davis is going to have bad series (see: Braves) and very good series (see: Red Sox) and many in between. Can’t we all chill and let Davis get some playing time?
4: Kyle Lohse, Matt Garza, Marco Estrada, Wily Peralta
In addition to Gallardo, the starters completed one of the greatest first weeks of starting pitching in Brewer history.
5: Carlos Gomez
Hitting .320 with 2 home runs and 7 stolen bases; picking up right where he left off in 2013.
Lucroy is hitting .364 because of course he is.
Still hitting .440 and I stand by my “if he keeps this up he will win MVP” stance.
In 12 plate appearances Reynolds has 7 strike outs and 1 home run. Not sure if this is good or bad, just know it’s EXACTLY as advertised.
As the closer 2 for 2 so far, okay this is working so far.
10: Brandon Kintzler
Looking good out of the pen, it’s nice to have a guy like Kintzler.
