TWO UP: OUTFIELD DEPTH SHOWS UP
The talk all offseason about the Brewers was whether they would move one of their six major league caliber outfielders to get some starting pitching. And that usually revolved around both Keon Broxton and Domingo Santana.
Broxton was one of three players to go 20/20 last season while Santana hit 30 homers in his first full season as a starter.
But with Yelich and Cain entering the everyday lineup, that meant Broxton was ticketed for AAA Colorado Springs where he has been exceptional (.333 BA, 14.3 percent BB).
Santana, currently playing every day due to the injuries to Cain and Yelich, had picked up where he left off, hitting .289 with a .373 OBP.
Combine that with Brett Phillips and the Brewers outfield depth has had to come up big, and, so far at least, they have.
