2. Josh Hader
Josh Hader is one of the best pitchers in the MLB, regardless of position. He’s been extremely reliable and someone manager Craig Counsell can turn to at any time in the game. Hader’s also been able to pitch multiple innings to help carry the Brewers bullpen.
Unfortunately, he’s been cast aside as the closer and Milwaukee’s bullpen has taken a step backward as a result. It shouldn’t take long until Counsell demotes Corey Knebel to a setup man and puts Hader back into his role as closer.
When this happens, the Brewers won’t have any trouble locking up games and will be able to get back to their winning ways.
