Keon Broxton had been red hot in Colorado Springs after a slow start to the season, but it wasn’t enough for the outfielder went 4-for-22 over ten games before being optioned back to Colorado Springs when the Milwaukee Brewers reinstated Domingo Santana from the DL.

In his return from the DL Santana had a strong outing, Santana commented after the game saying

"“I had a pretty good idea, once I left Milwaukee, that I was 100 percent.”"

Despite Jonathan Villar being red-hot as of late, it wasn’t enough for the Milwaukee Brewers last night.

Jimmy Nelson had an off-night in the loss to the Phillies yesterday, but the bullpen provided solid relief throwing four scoreless innings for the Milwaukee Brewers.

Once a struggling prospect with the Phillies, Villar has been thriving with the Milwaukee Brewers.
