Brewers News and Notes 6.6.18

The Brewers have fallen on hard times for the first time since the beginning of the 2018 season. After a very strong month of May where the team won 19 of 27 games, they have definitely cooled off in June. They started the month on the road in Chicago where they lost 2 of 3 to the 19-39 White Sox. After leaving Chicago, they made their way to Cleveland for a quick two-game series vs. the Indians where the struggles continued. The Brewers scored a combined three runs in two games and were dominated by Kluber and Carrasco.

Cain, Yelich, Shaw, and Braun are all hitting under .225 over the last seven days. With Villar and Santana carrying the offense at .313 and .333.

With a day off tomorrow, the Brewers head to Philly for a three-game series with the Brewers best pitcher, Jhoulys Chacin, on the mound to begin the series Friday.

The Brewers started off the draft picking 21st in the first round. The Brewers selected Brice Turang a shortstop from Santiago High School in California.

According to Jonathan Mayo of Turang was listed as the top high school player available in the draft. He has a plus glove and shown he can handle shortstop but can make a move over to second base if needed.

Zach Davies won’t be returning from the DL this week, as Adam McCalvy reports, Davies has rotator cuff inflammation. Look for Freddy Peralta to get called back up to make his third start of the season in Davies place.

In my opinion, a September call-up is going to happen for Keston this year. The dude hits in every level of baseball he plays in, I would estimate he will be full time in the MLB at some point in 2019 if he keeps hitting at this crazy rate.
