With the Milwaukee Brewers officially in the playoffs, which pitchers are likely to be a part of their post-season roster?
The Milwaukee Brewers are returning to the postseason for the second successive season!
Now that the team will be playing at least one playoff game come next week, it’s worth discussing who may feature on their postseason roster.
Matt Carroll is previewing which position players are likely to be a part of that roster come October. In this article, we will try to lay out which pitchers, starters and relievers, are likely to make the cut.
For the purposes of these two articles, we’ve divided the roster into 13 position players and 12 pitchers. We did that for two reasons: 1) That was the number of players the Milwaukee Brewers carried with them in those two categories during the 2018 NLCS last fall, and 2) the need to carry 13 pitchers in the playoffs diminishes since teams have more days off between games than they do during the regular season. That makes it easier to keep pitchers fresh, thus reducing the need to have extra arms in the pen.
With that said, let’s dive starting with the pitchers who are locks to make the postseason roster.
