4. Junior Guerra
One of the major pieces the Brewers have been missing this season has been a stud starting pitcher. Their starting unit has been a group of randoms who have collectively pitched pretty well. However, they struggle to get deep into games and the rotation usually takes turns about who is pitching well at any given moment. In order for the Brewers to make a run, that all needs to change.
With Jimmy Nelson‘s timetable unknown and his return looking less and less likely, the Brewers need to find a stable pitcher who they can rely on to pitch well every time out. That’s where we enter Junior Guerra.
In his time on the mound, Guerra has arguably been the Brewers best pitcher. He’s posted a 3.23 ERA, the lowest of any starting pitcher for Milwaukee. However, he’s been put on the DL with a forearm injury and the severity is unknown. However, if he is able to make a comeback shortly after the All-Star break, he should be able to anchor the Brewers’ staff and help take them to the playoffs.
