Matthew Pouliot of Rotoworld checks in with some AFL notes, including some thoughts on a few Brewers prospects.
Ryan Braun (.326/.396/.641):
Rottino's poor AFL performance and the Estrada trade have probably doomed Vinny to another season in Nashville. He's probably fifth on the catching depth chart at the moment.
I didn't realize it until reading this piece, but it does appear that Sarfate is on the outside looking in, at least initially, for the bullpen next year. I have to figure Cordero, Capellan, Wise, Turnbow, Aquino, Shouse, and the loser of the Villanueva/Jackson derby (I'm picking Jackson) all appear to be ahead of him; Melvin might always go out and get another lefty, too. Despite the fact that Sarfate might be better than some of those guys, it's nice to know that, in him and Grant Balfour, the Brewers have some good bullpen depth.
