Most Valuable Brewers 2013

A player-by-player look at the 2013 Milwaukee Brewers

MVBrewers #3: Jean Segura

There's a strong chance the young Brewers shortstop is the best trade acquisition of the Melvin era.

MVBrewers #4: Kyle Lohse

His signing just a week before the season was nothing if not controversial. Whether or not you agree with the move, Lohse pitched well for the Crew this season.

MVBrewers #5: Norichika Aoki

The Brewer outfield is in a state of flux going forward, but it's not Aoki's fault.

MVBrewers #6: Jim Henderson

Is this longtime minor leaguer ready to become one of baseball's elite closers?

MVBrewer #7: Brandon Kintzler

One of the Brewers' best relief pitchers in 2013 was an unlikely candidate.

MVBrewer #8: Yovani Gallardo

Gallardo checks in at number 8, behind Lohse, Henderson, and Kintzler, just where we all expected him.

MVBrewer #9: Wily Peralta

The former #1 prospect showed some real flashes of promise in his first MLB season.

MVBrewer #10: Scooter Gennett

While Scooter Gennett only got his chance due to ineffectiveness and injuries, he took the opportunity and gained control of the starting job for the Brewers, putting himself on the inside track to be the primary starter at second base in 2014.

MVBrewers Honorable Mention: Marco Estrada

If you're going to have two good months, August and September are a good time to do it.

MVBrewers Honorable Mention: Ryan Braun

Well, he had to go somewhere.

MVBrewers Honorable Mention: Khris Davis

Khris Davis will be in the top-10 for MVBrewers next year.

MVBrewers Honorable Mention: Tyler Thornburg

Scouts still say he may be a reliever in the long run, but he looks pretty good as a starter right now.

MVBrewers Honorable Mention: Aramis Ramirez

What does the future hold for the Brewers' elder statesman?

MVBrewers Honorable Mention: Tom Gorzelanny

Tom Gorzelanny was ready to pitch wherever he was needed in 2013, and that helped keep this Brewers team fill some big holes.

MVBrewers Honorable Mention: Jeff Bianchi

He was about as valuable as a .237/.272/.292 hitter can be.

The Last 2013 Brewers: Yuniesky Betancourt

He's not just the worst 2013 Brewer, it's possible he's also the worst Brewer of all time.

The Last 2013 Brewers: Michael Gonzalez

The latest "veteran with closing experience" was the weakest link in the Brewers bullpen in 2013.

The Last 2013 Brewers: John Axford

Here's a reminder to closely monitor the expiration dates on your effective closers.

The Last 2013 Brewers: Rickie Weeks

Saying this one time NL All Star has fallen out of favor would be a massive understatement.

Lesser Brewers: Johnny Hellweg

Who is the real Johnny Hellweg, anyway?

Lesser Brewers: Chris Narveson

Nearly two years out from a torn rotator cuff, this lefty is looking for a place to continue his comeback attempt.

Lesser Brewers: Juan Francisco

Home runs!

Lesser Brewers: Mike Fiers

2012's breakout Brewer had a season to forget in 2013.

Lesser Brewers: Michael Blazek

Can this 24-year-old flamethrower be Doug Melvin's next bullpen find?

Lesser Brewers: Alfredo Figaro

This Japanese import turned into a pretty solid find for Doug Melvin.

Lesser Brewers: Hiram Burgos

Hiram Burgos entered 2013 as the hot pitching prospect for the Brewers, but shoulder issues forced an early end to his season.

Lesser Brewers: Martin Maldonado

This backup went from defense-first to defense-only in 2013.

Lesser Brewers: Sean Halton

Did this veteran minor leaguer do enough in 2013 to become part of the long term plans?

Lesser Brewers: Donovan Hand

Is his future in relief or in the rotation?

Lesser Brewers: Jimmy Nelson

Is this former second round pick ready for the majors?

Lesser Brewers: Francisco Rodriguez

K-Rod's third stint as a Brewer was certainly more valuable than the second one.

Lesser Brewers: Burke Badenhop

In a bullpen with a lot of turnover, one of the most successful veterans was consistently overlooked.
