The Brewers had the day off.
Signings and analysis of the MLB Draft has continued with the draft done.
With the draft done, signings are in progress and analysis of the draft is underway. Yesterday, the Brewers reached an agreement with first round pick Kodi Medeiros. With him signing underslot, it will help the Brewers with the rest of their signings. Noah started a tracker yesterday to track the signings as they occur over the next few weeks. In addition, Derek had part one of a two-part interview with Patrick Ebert on the Brewers draft. There will be more to talk about in the coming weeks, so keep watching BCB for updates as they come.
Gomez climbed into a starting spot in the outfield in the most recent All-Star Update.
MLB released their most recent All-Star update for the National League on Monday night. The lone starter in the current update was Carlos Gomez, who has the third spot, and holds it by about 2000 votes. Ryan Braun and Khris Davis were also in the top 15 of votes in the outfield. At other positions, Jonathan Lucroy was in third place in the catcher vote, Jean Segura was third in the shortstop vote, and Aramis Ramirez was fourth at third base. Carlos Gomez has the best chance of getting a starting spot, though Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez still have shots at a start. There's still about a month left in the vote, so a lot can happen.
