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?
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.
There’s my “rankings”, what’s yours? Feel free to comment below and let us know.
