More fun with maps: How the Brewers' position players got here

Here's the second half of my set of maps of Brewers players' paths to Milwaukee. The position players' routes aren't nearly as convoluted as the pitchers', which makes the maps a lot easier to read, but also aren't quite as exciting (if you can call Mike Gonzalez's "ramblin' man" routine exciting).

These maps work the same as the last two: I included every minor-league team they played for (including rehab assignments), as well as the school or town they were drafted/signed from. Click on each player's route for a list of what teams they were a part of and when, and click on each point on the map to find out what team it is. The players are split into home-grown and imports, and you can isolate one group or the other by un-clicking the other two layers.

Here's the map for infielders. You know what I didn't know? Yuniesky Betancourt has never played below AA. It's not that surprising when you think about it, since he was a Cuban defector and all, but I think that's really what he needs to correct his game -- a loooooooong stint in A-ball, preferably in another organization. It'd really be the best thing for all concerned -- the team, Yuni, the game as a whole, the pan of lasagna that would finally get a crack at the majors in his place. (Also surprising: Jean Segura's had a really crazy route to the majors for such a young guy.)

And here's the map for outfielders. It's the cleanest, simplest map of the four. I may be missing some steps on Norichika Aoki -- all I found was where he was born and his NPB team. Sean Halton's included on it not because he's actually an outfielder, but because the infield map was too packed already. Anyway, enjoy.
