Milwaukee Brewers Untapped: Prospects Shining Bright In Rebuild


With the help of former prospects, the Milwaukee Brewers were able to defeat the Phillies yesterday.

Of course having some of your player’s homer in the game helps as well, especially when the other team can’t get their bats going.

Jonathan Villar has been getting plenty of praise as well from more than just Milwaukee Brewers writers and fans.

Unfortunately, not all of the Milwaukee Brewers have been red hot, as Scooter Gennett has been in a slump as of late.

Domingo Santana is making his presence known through the first two games back from his DL stint; even the Skipper has been singing his praises.

"“He’s an offensive player, for sure,” manager Craig Counsell said of Santana, who went 2 for 4 with two runs scored and a walk in addition to his homer. “He’s got some slug, too, so he can add quick offense like he did today. He does make a difference, certainly."
