After coming in fourth in the NL Central, the Milwaukee Brewers are focusing on making a comeback.
Rickie Weeks and Scooter Gennett will be fighting for starting second baseman. Weeks has acted as the main second baseman over the past nine years. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke hasn’t determined who the frontrunner will be, but he’s hinted that Gennett will get some playing time.With signing Matt Garza, the Brewers hope to take pressure off the young pitchers. This is a part of the Brewers’ plan to throw off their competition and change up their line-up.
In a recent interview with MLB.com, starting catcher Jonathan Lucroy said the team’s optimism and health will hopefully lead them to a winning season. However, outfielder Logan Schafer attributes the Brewer’s future success to the team’s “quiet confidence.”
