Now that the trade deadline has passed and the Milwaukee Brewers have acquired new parts of the rebuild. The first question is what happens to the bullpen without Jeremy Jeffress and Will Smith?
There’s also the newest prospect, Lewis Brinson, who has been red hot since making his debut in AAA Colorado Springs. He’s not the only new prospect which the team has acquired in the last week. As always, you can see how all the prospects faired over at Miller Park Prospects.
The Milwaukee Brewers still have a PTBNL coming from the Rangers, and if recent reports are to be believed, it will be a “Significant Piece”, a top 75 prospect like Ortiz and Brinson (both acquired from the Rangers).

The Milwaukee Brewers are still stuck at the number 24 spot in ESPN’s power rankings. The Milwaukee Brewers ran away with the victory last night, as Ryan Braun hit 7 RBIs en route to a Cream City 15-6 victory.
After the game Braun had this to say:
"“I was a little concerned that we were going to end up finishing the game in less than our standard 4 hours,” quipped Braun. “Fortunately, we were able to extend it out, get it right to four hours. But if you’re going to play for four hours, it’s obviously a lot more fun to be on the winning side of it.”"
