Report: Brewers to sign Franklin Morales


The Brewers are expected to sign Franklin Morales to a minor-league contract in the next day or two. The team hasn't made an announcement yet, it's most likely pending a physical (per Adam McCalvy). While the results for Morales were good last year (3.18 ERA, 3.52 FIP), he's the definition of a LOOGY (3.70 FIP, .205/.288/.327 vs. left-handed batters; 5.19 FIP, .278/.371/.465 vs. right-handed batters). He has value as a LHP, but is probably just a minor-league depth option at this point.

Braun to return to LF, Santana to play RF


Good move IMO, this will improve the Brewers OF defense I'm 2016 and hopefully beyond.

Born a Brewer video


Not sure if this has been shared here on BCB yet, but either way, I just want to say how much I love this video. Really makes you want Counsell to be the manager for the long haul... to when the Brewers win the World Series in 3-5 years and beyond!

Brewers unveil new Spring Training jerseys


Today MLB released the full lineup of Spring Training jerseys and caps. The new jerseys include some new features, like a state patch for the league they are in and a lighter fabric. What's interesting here for the Brewers is that in these new jerseys, the Brewers have elected to use their new alternate design. Is this a sign of things to come? We'll have to wait and see.
