The Milwaukee Brewers are being very active prior to the kick off of the minor league season.
Big news of Andres Blanco broke recently, then the reported signing of Fernando Perez. Now, another infield farmhand is joining the organization. Dylan Moore will now be playing in the Milwaukee Brewers farm system for at least the 2018 season.
Meet Dylan Moore
Though he is listed as a shortstop, Moore has at least an inning at every position on the field except for catcher. That includes an inning on the mound, with an ERA of zero following seven unearned runs crossing the plate. Plus, he has eight games in the outfield. The majority of his experience is at shortstop.
The 2015 seventh round pick of the Atlanta Braves will now be joining the Milwaukee Brewers organization. Moore had been hitting the ball well in the lower levels of the minor leagues until he reached Double A last season. He barely hit over .200 there. But, he will be starting with Biloxi and getting another crack at that level.
What Is His Future With The Brewers?
As with many of the recent MiLB signings, Moore will be minor league depth to start. However, if he can find the swing that had him hitting around .270 the last few years, there is not reason he cannot crawl through the ranks of the Milwaukee Brewers farm.
Moore is the third minor league signing in the last three days who has experience at several different positions on the infield. It is good to see David Stearns veering away from stashing only outfielders. It brings hope for the future of the organization.
Minor league depth may not be as exciting as Ryan Braun walkoff bombs, or watching Christian Yelich, and Lorenzo Cain tear it up at Miller Park. But this is the future of the organization. If things go wrong, these recent moves will be guys waiting in the wings to take over. These previous signings are smart moves by the Milwaukee Brewers.
