Jesus Aguilar informed that he’ll make Milwaukee Brewers’ Opening Day Roster | Kyle Lesniewski, BCB
More players are being informed that they will make the roster, and Jesus Aguilr was one of those players, earning a spot through his strong spring.
The spot for adding Aguilar was opened by placing Scooter Gennett on waivers, where he was claimed by the Reds. With the infield filled and more prospects on the rise, the chance for Gennett to get playing time was not going to be there.
Even though Opening Day is only 4 days away, the rest of the starting rotation remains an enigma. The Brewers currently have Peralta, Garza, and Nelson lined up for the spots, but have made no official announcement.
