    Jeffress is still walking way too many hitters IMO. I would say I am most impressed with Gamel, Gindl, and Lawrie on the offensive side of the ball.

    One pitcher impressing is the Butler kid we got in the Gabe Gross trade. Maybe we stole something there?

    Butler has a good chance to be something. I was looking at guys the Brewers got in trades and he seems to be the best one down in the minors.

    24 years old, hasn't even reached AA yet, pedestrian strike out rate, walks too many. Chances he becomes something, not good.

    One of these times you are going to hit on the right guy. Butler isn't garbage but he does need to cut down on walks a bit and moreso on hits.

    Taylor Green looked really good in his debut. Hit a homer and then singled on the next 2 at bats.

    Crew prospect Dykstra moving to second
    Son of fomer big leaguer Lenny heads to rookie-ball Helena

    By Adam McCalvy / MLB.com

    05/17/09 2:20 PM ET

    ST. LOUIS -- Switching to second base is apparently in vogue for 2008 Brewers Draft picks.

    First, it was Brett Lawrie, who was a catcher when Milwaukee snagged him in the first round of last year's Draft, but he was asked to move to second over the winter. Now, second-rounder Cutter Dykstra, who had been a center fielder so far as a pro, is making the same switch, the Appleton Post-Crescent reported.

    The Brewers moved Dykstra from Class A Wisconsin to rookie-level Helena on Saturday and told him he'll be a second baseman from now on. Dykstra will spend the five weeks before Helena's June 23 season opener at the team's facility in Phoenix adjusting back to the infield. He played shortstop in high school.

    "Middle infield has been my position my whole life," Dykstra told the newspaper. "I was getting more and more comfortable in the outfield, but coming back to second base is like coming back to my home."

    Dykstra, 19 and the son of former Major League outfielder Lenny Dykstra, batted .212 in 29 games for Wisconsin. Brewers roving infield instructor Garth Iorg said the position change had nothing to do with that slow start at the plate.

    "We just think he has more value to our organization as an infielder," Iorg told the Post-Crescent. "That's the only reason."

    Dykstra was replaced on Wisconsin's roster by third-base prospect Taylor Green, who missed the start of the season after undergoing left wrist surgery. Green, who presumably will be moved up to Double-A Huntsville in short order, went 4-for-5 with four RBIs in his season debut, including a two-run home run in his first at-bat.

    Green was one of two players Cleveland considered snagging as the player to be named later in last summer's CC Sabathia trade. Instead, the Indians chose outfielder Michael Brantley.

    With Dykstra moving to 2b, that might mean Lawrie eventually winds up at 1b

    I'm confused by the move with Dykstra. Lawrie is doing well at 2B and everyone is high on him after initially not being thrilled about it. I don't get why they are creating more infielders when they have a pretty good crop of guys.

    They moved Dykstra to second because he's absolutely terrible in center.

    And if Lawrie can stick at second base, he doesn't have to worry about Dykstra taking his job.

    escobar is on a hot streak at triple-a nashville, hitting .370 over his last seven games with five doubles.

    Spin: Escobar, 22, is probably ready for the major leagues or very close to being ready. He still needs to walk more, but only j. J. Hardy is keeping him from being promoted. If hardy doesn't get traded during the season then escobar will spend most of this season in the minors.

    Ya Escobar has his average over .300 for pretty much the first time this season.

    Any word on how his defense has been? I know he has 9 errors but that's not that indicative of how he has been playing.


    As for trading Hardy this season to make room for Escobar, I am torn. They are completely different players and Hardy has been inconsistent this season so I don't know what his trade value would be.

    They sould bring escobar up to play second and bat lead off. Counsil has been good but the speed would be nice. Chris Cody from the Gross trade seems to be pitching well if I remember i heard he throws close to 95 with a great curve. Also I was pushing for a salmone trade in the offseason would have been a good idea the way he's hitting this year.
