Nice to see Salome finally do something with the stick down at Nashville last night. I have been watching Salome vs Lucroy all year as I consider it the most interesting position battle the Brewers have in the minors and Lucroy impresses me with his plus walk to strikeout ratio so far this season. He has shown power in the past, and if he also possesses patientce he really could be a nice player.
Also Caleb Gindl interests me as well. The guy has shot up the Brewers prospects list, and although he is challenged by his small stature, he is showing he has a very good bat. He runs well, hits for some pop, and hits left handed which is always a plus when talking about the Brewers.
Anyone have news on when Taylor Green might start swinging after his wrist surgery?
Oh and just to be fair... as I consider myself pretty much anti-Tony Gwynn, but I do respect what he is doing.
My biggest issues with him were no power, and when power is not present OBP most be present to make a player effective. Gwynn had neither.
So far this season at Nashville he has walked more than he has K'ed, he is hitting batting over .300, and he is stealing bases effectively 12SB without being caught. All stats that would support his case for getting another chance in the big leagues even if it isnt in Milwaukee.
Oh and he hommered today... his first of the year.
