MVBrewers #3: Yovani Gallardo

Yovani Gallardo's 2nd consecutive 200-inning, 200-strikeout season launches him to 3rd place in MVBrewers voting

MVBrewer #4: Corey Hart

+

Coming in at #4 in the player-by-player look at 2012 is Corey Hart. His bat helped keep the offense going, but the real value that Hart provided may have come from an in-season position switch.

MVBrewer#5: Norichika Aoki

7

Even the most optimistic Brewer fans have to be pleasantly surprised by what the Brewers got from Aoki this season.

MVBrewer #6: Jonathan Lucroy

9

An unfortunately-timed suitcase injury prevented Jonathan Lucroy from having the cliche "breakout year", but we have now seen legitimate proof of the promise he has at the plate and in the field.

MVBrewers #7: Carlos Gomez

MVBrewer #8: Zack Greinke

+

While he was only with the Brewers for four months of 2012, Zack Greinke's contribution to the Brewers was undeniable. His final contribution to the team may have a lasting impact in the next six...

MVBrewer #9: Marco Estrada

3

Estrada went from afterthought middle reliever to top half of the rotation starter in 2012.

MVBrewers #10: Mike Fiers

2

A somewhat disappointing Brewer season could have gotten much worse without this surprising contribution.

MVBrewers Honorable Mention: Martin Maldonado

3

The rookie catcher came out of nowhere to stabilize one of the game's most important positions.

MVBrewers Honorable Mention: Rickie Weeks

4

Can Weeks put his slow first half behind him and bounce back in 2013?

MVBrewers Honorable Mention: Jim Henderson

2

After ten years in the minors, Jim Henderson made the most of his first major league opportunity in 2012.

MVBrewers Honorable Mention: Mark Rogers

16

Mark Rogers needed a good 2012 season to keep his career with the Brewers going. His season will keep him in the conversation for the Brewers rotation in 2013.

MVBrewers Honorable Mention: Shaun Marcum

+

By most objective measures Shaun Marcum didn't have a *bad* season, just a disappointing one.

MVBrewers Honorable Mention: Wily Peralta

4

Wily Peralta's stock was pretty high coming into 2012 and took a hit early, but might be even higher going into 2013.

MVBrewers Honorable Mention: Jean Segura

2

The new shortstop of the future held his own in his Brewer debut, creating some hope that the position may finally be stable.
