Zaun (Not) Gone for the Year (Yet)?

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

It seems so. Zaun reportedly has a torn labrum and will need surgery that will keep him out 4-6 months…so yeah…the season.

Maybe on the DL, it'll be "Bring Your ZZZZ-Game"

That means that the youth movement progresses with Kottaras, who started only 25 games in the majors before this season, and Lucroy, who didn’t start a major league game until yesterday. While that may seem like a downer, I’ve liked what I’ve seen from Kottaras and Lucroy looked alright last night (other than pi$$ing off all the pitchers…ha).  So anyone wanna guess how this plays out over the season? Does it hurt the pitching staff not to have a veteran presence? Will it help the team with faster, younger players behind the plate who have been getting on base?

UPDATE: Zaun has decided not to have season ending surgery at this point, but we will see how this affects him

ESPN’s Law Ranks Prospects for the Brewers

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

This is Keith Law’s prospect rankings for the Brewers Organization

1. Brett Lawrie, 2B
2. Alcides Escobar, SS
3. Eric Arnett, RHP
4. Kyle Heckathorn, RHP
5. Jon Lucroy, C
6. Wily Peralta, RHP
7. Lorenzo Cain, CF
8. Jake Odorizzi, RHP
9. Kentrail Davis, LF
10. Zach Braddock, LHP

A couple things I find interesting:

  1. Brett Lawrie is ranked ahead of Alcides. This was surprising and when reading why he chose this order, he seemed to downgrade Escobar because of the lack of pop in his bat. This might be why more people choose Baseball America
  2. No Chronic-Crazed RHP by the name of Jeremy Jeffress on the list…man, how his stock has fallen.
  3. Speaking of falling stock, no Angel Salome either
  4. I’m excited for the possibility of a Heckathorn and Arnett in the rotation
  5. I think it’s funny how some people LOVE Kentrail Davis and some people think he’s overrated. This year will be more telling.
  6. Wait…wait…fans of the T-Rats will be wondering where Cody Scarpetta is…You have to love the Appleton fans love of Scarpface.
