Since the trading of Jeremy Jeffress and Will Smith, Tyler Thornburg has proven that he was what it takes to be the closer for the Milwaukee Brewers.

Yesterday was a tough day for former Cream City Crusher Carlos Gomez and Prince Fielder. Gomez was DFA’d by the Houston Astros and Fielder was forced to leave the game of baseball due to multiple neck injuries.

Don’t expect Gomez back with the Milwaukee Brewers anytime soon, though.

Orlando Arcia is the face of the generation of Milwaukee Brewers, and even though the team is rebuilding at the moment, he provides plenty of hope and joy for Milwaukee Brewers fans alike. Matt Garza is looking to have a bounce-back year, and according to BP Milwaukee, he is well his way to doing so.
