Brewers update: Khris khrushes it again
If spring training counted in the regular season outfielder Khris Davis would be the Brewers MVP. For the third straight day the prospect hit one out of the park and coupled with a single Davis finished the day 2-3 with a walk. But in the early going Davis isn't about taking pitches or advancing runners. He's about power and it is on full display this week. Davis likely won't start on the 25 man roster but he sure is making a name for himself.
Mark Rogers is battling command issues. In three innings or work Rogers issued three walks. On its on it may not look bad but in his other two appearances Rogers gave up three and four walks. That's ten walks in 5 2/3 innings. Other than the walks he wasn't terrible. He got out of a bases-loaded jam in the first inning and his ERA this far is a respectable 3.86. However, with the walk total Rogers isn't quite at the level most people were hoping for. The issue, though, is that Rogers is out of minor league options so the Brewers either have to put him in the bullpen or release him if they feel he hasn't earned a job in the rotation.
A few moves according to Mike Vassallo: pitchers Ariel Pena, Santo Manzanillo and Miguel De Los Santos have been optioned to Huntsville. Pitchers Jairo Asencio, Jed Bradley, Darren Byrd, Taylor Jungmann and Arcenio Leon have been returned to minor league camp.
Also as I wrap this up I see they are putting the tarp on the field. The Brewers are scheduled to play Texas tomorrow here at Maryvale Baseball Park but rain is in the forecast and may threaten to cancel the game.
