With the recent shipping of Segura to Arizona for Aaron Hill, Hill will platoon over Gennett who had a miserable start to 2015 and was sent back to the minors for few weeks.  Hill has been battling some injuries over the last couple years but with the Brewers, he has the perfect chance to rebuild and serve as a mentor for the younger players.

Stearns has confirmed that Jonathan Villar will start at SS and that Orlando Arcia will start the season with Triple-A Colorado Springs but I wouldn’t be surprised if this year is the year Arcia ends up in Miller Park for good.

The Brewers picked up Chris Carter putting an end to the cliché question “Who’s on First?” and Carter will hopefully excel in a hitter-friendly Miller Park. Third will be Will Middlebrooks and it seems like third is the weakest infield position as Middlebrooks has a projected WAR of just 0.2

Conclusion: Having Carter, Hill and Villar in the infield should provide the Brewers with anywhere from 4-8 wins better that what the infield provided last season.
