Obviously it's very early to be thinking about this, but any predictions on who will be the September call-ups? The trade deadline will likely change the 40 man roster a bit, but I'm guessing we'll see more guys than usual given the quality of our prospects and the team embracing a depth philosophy. Could have a big impact on the stretch run. I would guess that Bandy, Blazek, Espino, Brinson, Cordell, Scahill, Woodruff, Rivera, Lopez, and Phillips all have a good chance of being called up if they're not up already.

Also, do we think that the Brewers would try to get Dubon and Wang on the 40 man to allow for another base running specialist and LOOGY?

To hard to tell, our roster & minor league system could look a little different come September

Blazek and maybe another pen arm for insurance.

Brinson and Phillips for sure. Maybe Cordell. Bandy I would think, may as well have a 3rd catcher. So somewhere between 4-6 guys.

what's going to be more interesting is who's on the 25-man and the major league disabled list on 31 august. those are the players eligible for the postseason.

Eligibilty is based on the 40 man roster, don't have to be on 25 man.

If he's not used in a deal or brought up earlier, Jungmann certainly will be back. I don't foresee an issue opening up a couple 40 man spots to add Wang and perhaps another player.

If the team is in the playoff race in September, then expect a ton of call ups. Extra catcher, pinch hitters, defensive specialists, lots of bullpen arms.

One thing nice thing about the expanded rosters is that we can rest players when games are out of hand. A lot of players get tired come September, and giving them a few innings off here and there can help. And arms like Barnes and Knebel have thrown a lot of innings. In blow out games, it's the perfect time to have players like Jungmann around to eat up some innings instead of bringing in Hughes or another guy who's thrown a lot of innings.

i like the idea of calling up both catchers and having guys available (like kyle wren, mauricio dubon, lewis brinson, yadiel rivera, jonathan villar, hernan perez and keon broxton) to pinch run for them if any catcher reaches base late in the game (either as a starter or as a pinch hitter).

if the brewers are willing to pay him a major league salary and let him accrue major league service time, the brewers could call up adrian houser (not to report) and put him on the 60-day disabled list to free up a roster spot. worth the extra spend if the brewers are in the playoff hunt in late august.
