Wait for the “give Shaw a chance this is a small sample size” crowd that’s hopefully shrinking


Well, their take probably isn't wrong. The Brewers don't have the luxury of waiting for him to figure it out on the MLB roster, but he's had a whopping 15ABs the last 6 weeks, which isn't a lot of time to show whether you're figuring it out or not.

This is clearly the right move, but it IS still a small sample.

Having a RH infielder who can backup SS but can't hit makes more sense right now than a LH 1B/3B who can't hit (For now anyway). But it's going to have very little impact; Shaw didn't play much, and Hernan ideally should play just as little.


Imo, the correct player optioned down, wrong player brought up. The correct player would have been Freitas, even if only for this weekend. With Grisham Williams Faria brought up recently, was hoping Stearns mismanagement of the roster was a thing of the past.


Why would they bring up a 3rd catcher leaving themselves with only 4 infielders? An injury to anybody other than 1B could easily cost them a game. CC isn't going to sit Grandal and if a lefty throws, Pina is hitting lefties well. Zero need for a 3rd catcher.

He’s a hitter that plays 1B and catches, I’ll take the .4% chance that there will an injury to Arcia that requires moose to cover for the rest of the game. But Stearns disagrees, or maybe it’s Counsell, probably both, so there it is. But it’s not like Stearns/Counsell have been immune from poor decision making this year.

Could be nothing, but from the Missions beat reporter, Joe Alexander, just a few minutes ago...

Late starting lineup change for San Antonio Missions: Lucas Erceg at 3B and batting 5th instead of Travis Shaw.

If he came up it would almost have to be either a pitcher or Gamel going down I would think. Unless they go with no backup SS again.

Cain is reportedly dealing with an oblique injury so I wonder if they may decide to place him on the IL? Counsell already acknowledged he was unavailable today and won’t play tomorrow. Just a stab in the dark though, it could be completely unrelated.

Edit: Apparently Counsell also said Cain would NOT be going on the IL with the oblique issue per Haudricourt.
