Brewers with a couple of decent low risk potential high reward signings today.

"Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power......He probably has a future as a backup infielder if he can stop rolling over to third base and shortstop." Keith Law, 2006

Lancaster is A+, which is where he spent most of the season. He only had 76 plate appearances in AA and hit .220 in his limited at bats there. I personally think he’s a little further away than they think since he has just made it to AA and is already 24. I do like the signing though.

Roster moves:

These players have been released from their contracts - INF Allemand, INF Avila, INF Casals, RHP Friese, C Lugo, RHP Pastora, RHP RojasR, LHP Salaman, RHP Sigman, RHP Taugner, and C Valderrama


As we try to do when these lists come out, we like to let folks know who these players were, when and how acquired, etc. It's often hard to spin the numbers in a positive light (it is a release list, after all), but do consider the vast percentage of minor leaguers will be released before even coming close to fulfilling a big league dream. So kudos to all these young men on what they did accomplish, we hope other opportunities open up soon, affiliated right away or not, and best wishes in all aspects of life moving forward.

Listed in the same alphabetical order as seen above...

Always a tough road for the non-drafted players, but their backstories always seem to include a heavy dose of perseverance. Briefly a Royals farmhand, followed by independent ball stints, and then time with Data-Driven Baseball Performance Training at "Driveline", 24-year-old RHP Jackson Sigman made 23 relief appearances with Rocky Mountain this summer. The numbers weren't there for the University of West Virginia product, however.
