Pitchers and catchers have reported. Hitters are on their way. Oh, and Mike Moustakas is back with the Milwaukee Brewers for 2019. The team at Reviewing the Brew discusses the latest news, and what it means for the upcoming season.
Pitchers and catcher have been jogging in the outfield, playing long toss, and working their way through bullpen sessions for almost a week. Most of the position players have already reported to camp. Spring Training games are a few days away. Milwaukee Brewers baseball is, for all intents and purposes, back, and so is Mike Moustakas. We discuss the latest news and more in the most recent edition of the Reviewing the Brew podcast.
What else was discussed on the podcast this week?
Writers Matthew Dewoskin, David Gaspar, and Josepth Siemandel discuss the following topics on the fourth episode of the second season of the Reviewing the Brew podcast…
- What does the Moustakas deal mean for the other second basemen? The Brewers went from a platoon of Hernan Perez and Cory Spangenberg to Moustakas and an infield bench spot. Who’s on the outside looking in?
- Where will Spangenberg spend most of 2019? The choices appear to be either San Antonio or Milwaukee, and Milwaukee isn’t looking good with Moustakas on the roster
- Are the Milwaukee Brewers okay without a left-handed starter? The Brewers have eight pitchers with a realistic shot at the starting rotation. None of them are lefties.
- How does the Brewers payroll look with Moustakas on the roster? Can they fit Dallas Keuchel or Gio Gonzalez onto the 2019 roster? Gonzalez is still a possibility, but a deal with Keuchel isn’t looking likely.
The Reviewing the Brew podcast will continue to record on Tuesday nights for the foreseeable future. Be sure to check us out late Tuesday or early Wednesday to stay up to date with the latest Milwaukee Brewers commentary, news, and discussion from our team.
