The Brewers had the day off.
Brewers News & Notes
- A few new names are coming up in the search for a GM. Matt Goldman of MLB Daily Dish reports that former Angels GM Jerry Dipoto and former Red Sox GM Ben Cherington are potential candidates for the job.
- Should the Brewers hire an internal or external candidate for GM? Nicolas Zettel of Disciples of Uecker looks at the pros & cons of leaning each way in the GM search.
- Earlier today, the Brewers recalled Domingo Santana from Colorado Springs to fill the roster spot vacated by Tyler Cravy after he went on the disabled list yesterday.
- David Goforth has been the Brewers traveling minor-league player this, repeatedly getting called up and sent down. Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel has a profile of the relief pitcher.
- Taylor Jungmann has put together a great season, and it has been in part due to allowing so few home runs. Seth Victor of BP Milwaukee analyzes Jungmann's fly ball profile to see if he can keep up this home run rate.
- David Denson of the Helena Brewers has had a very challenging year as he made the decision to come out last week. Adam McCalvy of Brewers.com has a story on the year that Denson has had, both on and off the field.
