New, comments

A majority of voters in this week's BCB Tracking Poll are ready to see two young stars call it a season.

Hannah Foslien

This week's Brew Crew Ball Tracking Poll was open from Monday afternoon through Tuesday, and received 136 responses. Here are some notable results:

  • 62% of voters would opt to shut Wily Peralta down and start Johnny Hellweg and Jimmy Nelson this weekend, as the Brewers have done.
  • 52% felt that the Brewers should respond to Jean Segura's ongoing hamstring issues by shutting him down for the season.
  • Doug Melvin's approval rating is down 7% from three weeks ago, and now sits at 63%. Ron Roenicke's approval is down 6% and sits at 52.

Full results are below.

Jean Segura is currently day-to-day with a strained hamstring, but may be healthy enough to pinch hit. What should the Brewers do with him at this point?

Response Votes %
Use him for whatever he's healthy enough to do. 22 16%
Hold him out of action until he's 100%. 43 32%
Shut him down for the season. 71 52%
Something else. 0 0%
Undecided 0 0%
