Lewis Brinson - OF MIA

I think it's somewhat normal for players with their first exposure to MLB pitching to try and "overdo" it.  Brinson just needs to be confident in his game and not try and be a hero every time he's at the dish.  The hits and HR's will come.  Players like Bellinger are more of an exception than the norm when first being exposed to the MLB.  Hell, even Judge looked awful in his first MLB exposure and look what he's doing now.  Hopefully Brinson will figure it all out and have a similar experience.  Not saying he'll put up Judge numbers by any means, but just saying he'll find his game and do what he's done in the minors which is hit the ball well and swipe some bags.

Does Broxton being sent down affect Brinson? The corresponding move was Sogard coming up from the DL, and Braun looks like he'll be back soon.

Brett Phillips has been up for over a week is it and started the last two games hitting a homer in last night's so he may be the newest guy blocking Brinson.  Well actually it is Brinson blocking Brinson at times too.

He blocked himself by what he did on his first call-up and as others have said hasn't hit for as much power as you would expect playing in Colorado Springs given it's location.  Playing well and becoming an indispensable add are two different things.  If he keeps things up he can become that but apparently not yet in the eyes of the big club.  The Brewers are finding themselves in the thick of it this season and if they just demoted Broxton it means they have short leashes with their players right now.

Let's not forget, it's not like Brinson was given consistent starts when he was called up- he was in and out of the lineup, which is never ideal for a guy anxious to prove he belongs.

Saw this today, "Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Brewers are recalling top outfield prospect Lewis Brinson."

 

And so it begins! I grabbed Fisher not too long ago before he got called up, and now this. It'll be interesting to see how he contributes down the stretch for the Brewers.

Good news.  He will be in the majors this season.

 

Bad news.  It will be in Miami.

 

Yeah he was blocked in Milwaukee but now he goes from a hitter friendly park with a good line-up to flamingoland with a bad line-up.

 

Exactly, clear path to a way worse situation...
