3 players on the Brewers Opening Day roster who won't finish on it
By Drew Koch
3. Owen Miller will not finish the 2023 season on the Brewers roster.
Unlike the aforementioned Corbin Burnes and Brian Anderson, don't look for Owen Miller to have a completely different address. However, the 27-year-old may be the odd man out when it comes to find a roster spot as the 2023 season unfolds. Look for Miller to be optioned to Triple-A Nashville instead.
At this time, it would look as though Miller is the team's top utility player. Miller is versatile enough to play on the infield dirt and the outfield grass. But as the season unfolds, it may become more of a priority to get some of the organization's young talent up the bigs.
Remember, while Bryce Turang, Joey Wiemer, and Garrett Mitchell have already made it, Sal Frelick and Jackson Churio are still in the minors. While it's unlikely Brewers fans will see Churio in 2023, Frelick is already knocking on the door.
There's certainly a section of the Milwaukee faithful who would love to see the team move on from Christian Yelich. Unfortunately, no team is going to take on that massive salary after seeing the former MVP put up numbers that are well below what earned him that nine-year contract extension.
The Milwaukee Brewers could go any number of ways when it comes to this year's trade deadline or how the roster is managed based on the performance of the team's top prospects. One thing is for sure, though, the 26 players who finished the year on the Opening Day roster will not be the same ones who will be there at season's end.
