CHICAGO — Following a hiccup in the opener of the series, the Brewers returned to the winning formula they’ve featured of late — strong pitching, good  Josh Donaldson Canada Day Jersey defense and power hitting — to bounce back with a 5-0 victory over the White Sox on Saturday at Guaranteed Rate Field.

Jesus Aguilar hit a two-run home run and Erik Kratz, Jonathan Villar and Lorenzo Cain added solo blasts to provide the offense.

Jhoulys Chacin (4-1) allowed just three hits in 5 2/3 innings for the win and the bullpen — after allowing four runs in 2 1/3 innings the previous night — was stellar. Josh Hader allowed just a walk in 1 1/3 innings and Taylor Williams finished up with two scoreless innings working out of a jam in the ninth with runners on second and third and no outs.

“We did a good job overall scoring runs,” Cain said. “The pitching did a good job. That’s what they’ve been doing all year, keeping us in games. But we would like to put up a lot more runs early on. Hopefully, we can turn it around tomorrow and score a lot earlier.”

In the opener on Friday, the Brewers jumped out to a 3-0 lead before dropping an 8-3 decision. It was the first time this season the Brewers had lost when leading by two runs or more at any point during the game.

Kratz’s homer tucked inside the foul pole down the left-field  Men’s Majestic 6 Marcus Stroman Toronto Blue Jays Authentic Scarlet Canada Day Red Jersey line for a 1-0 lead in the third, but White Sox starter James Shields (1-6) was able to wiggle out of big-time trouble in the fifth and sixth innings to keep the score tight.

In the fifth, Shields escaped with runners on the corners with no outs by getting Orlando Arcia to pop out in foul territory for the first out, and then striking out Cain and Christian Yelich. In the sixth, Aguilar got to third with no outs on a double and a wild pitch, but he was stranded as Travis Shaw popped out and Ryan Braun lined into a double play.

“We couldn’t get ’em in from third, so we hit some h Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey 2018 ome runs,” manager Craig Counsell said.

Villar stroked a one-out homer in the seventh to make it 2-0. Cain then led off the eighth with a homer and two batters later, Aguilar’s two-run shot off Jace Fry made it 5-0.

In fifth, Shields struck out Cain with a 69-mph curveball two pitches after getting a swing-and-miss on a 67-mph curveball. Cain’s homer was on a 78-mph curveball and a 3-2 pitch.

“I was definitely looking for it 3-2, because he struck me out with it on the at-bat before that,” Cain said. “I definitely wasn’t used to it. It was slower than I thought, but 3-2, I just felt it in my heart he was gonna throw a curveball.”

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED
Strong up the middle: With the Brewers leading 1-0 and a runner on second with one out in the sixth, Chicago’s Jose Abreu hit a hard grounder up the middle that appeared to be a game-tying hit. Villar made a diving stop to his right and threw o Kevin Pillar Canada Day Jersey ut Abreu — from the shortstop side of the bag — for the second out.

“That was huge,” Chacin said. “I was hoping for him to stop the ball, but he got the out. That was the game there. You can’t let a guy come in there.”

SOUND SMART
Hader extended his scoreless streak to 14 1/3 innings. The Brewers are 20-0 this season in games in which the left-hander has pitched.

The left-hander has won his past three starts with a 3.11 ERA (6 runs in 16 1/3 innings) during Marcus Stroman Canada Day Jersey that span. Right-hander Dylan Covey, who earned his first Major League win on May 23 after dropping his first eight decisions, pitches for the White Sox.

Brewers’ outfield am Marcus Stroman Canada Day Jersey 2018 ong MLB’s best

Lorenzo Cain lurches into his locker, grabs his glove ahead of batting practice and prepares to head to the field. Out of the adjacent corner of the Brewers’ clubhouse — one comprised of a retooled nucleus looking to build off last year’s 86-win season — thi Kevin Pillar Canada Day Jersey rd-base coach Ed Sedar shouts at Cain in a scene that plays out almost daily.

“Where’s your card?” Sedar said. “Let me see it.”

Lorenzo Cain lurches into his locker, grabs his glove ahead of batting p Marcus Stroman Canada Day Jersey ractice and prepares to head to the field. Out of the adjacent corner of the Brewers’ clubhouse — one comprised of a retooled nucleus looking to build off last year’s 86-win season — third-base coach Ed Sedar shouts at Cain in a scene that plays out almost daily.

“Where’s your card?” Sedar said. “Let me see it.”

Sedar oversees Milwaukee’s outfield defense, and as he has since 2007, he constructs scouting cards that players keep in their back pocket tailoring each defensive alignment. Many clubs use these index-sized cards now, but Sedar insists he pioneered them. And Cain is constantly losing his.

“Every single day, I tell [Sedar], ‘Just wait until we get out there, because it’s most likely not going to make it to the dugout if you give it to me early,'” Cain said good naturedly. “He definitely gives me a hard time. I think I’ve gotten a card out to the dugout once this year. We’re trying to figure out a program that works for both of us, so I’m not there empty-handed without my card.”

Cain didn’t use a card during his seven seasons with Kansas City, and his natural instincts often mask the minute detail of where he’s positioned. His raw athleticism as a premier center fielder, in large part, was what inspired the Brewers sign Cain for $80 million, just hours after trading for 2014 Gold Glove Award winner Christian Yelich. It was a package deal of sorts that shaped an outfield that — with improved defense from slugging right fielder Domingo Santana — many metrics and eye tests suggest is among the Majors’ best.

Video: MIL@CHC: Cain runs down a fly ball for five-star grab

“Improving defense in general was a priority. We were able to do it in the outfield, we think,” general manager David Stearns said.

Looking at Statcast™‘s Outs Above Average, which is a range-based metric that details how many outs an outfielder saved compared to his peers, Milwaukee is tied for the league lead with 11. OAA is more telling with a larger sample than two months, so with that caveat, also consider that the Brewers’ outfield ranks second in MLB with 21 defensive runs saved, which shows how many runs a player saved or cost his team in the field compared to the average player at his position. Last year, Milwaukee ranked 18th in DRS (minus-6), and it was tied-for 13th in OAA (minus-2). Both metrics are better representations of defensive value than fielding percentage, which the Brewers rank 13th at .988.

Last month, MLB.com’s Mike Petriello highlighted how the Brewers have been one of the most improved outfields, and personnel upgrades have certainly contributed. Yelich, who logged more innings in center last year (1,368 2/3) than anyone, is playing full-time in the corners, and Santana, who last year was worth minus-6 OAA — among the worst in MLB — has made significant strides through a Spring Training program to become a better defender. Santana is at plus-2 OAA this season.

“He’s a diligent worker in his outfield defense,” manager Craig Counsell said of Santana. “He’s trying to get better at it. He wants to get better at it. He knows it’s important to get better at it. I’m proud of him for how hard he’s worked. He’s spending a lot of time out there making the effort.”

2. Pirates: 47.4 percent
3. Reds: 46.4 percent

5. Braves: 45.3 percent

** Milwaukee ranked 21st in 2017 at 30.5 percent

Like most clubs, Brewers outfielders put a premium on treating balls during batting practice as live. This isn’t novel, but doing so meticulously allows their outfielders to acclimate to the behaviors of each ballpark. This practice is particularly true when Milwaukee opens a series on the road, and even more at ballparks it visits only once a year.

“It’s difficult to simulate balls you get during a game,” said Ryan Braun, who has also been a hybrid outfielder/first baseman this year. “Trying to get reads, trying to get jumps, seeing the ball in different ballparks, getting used to some of the different dimensions of ballparks. The lighting is an issue in certain places. The sun is an issue in certain places. It’s just about trying to get comfortable.”

With Braun able to play first, and Jesus Aguilar having a breakout season (hitting .307/.377/.555 with nine homers), the Brewers believe they’ve constructed a roster that not only offers defensive flexibility, but also protects them should they become vulnerable to injury. Braun, Yelic Men’s Majestic 6 Marcus Stroman Toronto Blue Jays Authentic Scarlet Canada Day Red Jersey h and Eric Thames — who last year played 29 games in the outfield — have all been on the disabled list this year.

It’s also worth noting that last year’s outfield included Keon Broxton (plus-10 OAA, 11th best in MLB) and Brett Phillips, who logged multiple throws of 100 mph or higher, per Statcast™. Both are in the Minors.

“Those were two pretty good defenders as well,” Stearns said. “To really acquire the well-rounded players that we were able to get in guys like Christian Yelich and Lorenzo Cain, they’re premium defenders and obviously they contribute at the plate. The on-base presence that both of those guys provide has been huge for us. They’ve really paced our lineup, and when they get on base, we’re generally a pretty good team.”

In a stagnant Hot Stove offseason, the Brewers were headliners. After falling one game shy of the postseason in just their second year of a rebuild, Stearns and the front office didn’t let off the gas. Milwaukee hasn’t lost consecutive games since April 29, and it is 15 games over .500 for t Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey 2018 he first time since August 2014.

Cain (127 wRC+) and Yelich (133) comprise among the best 1-2 lineup punches in the NL, and the Brewers’ improved defense and pitching staff has played a major part to their standing atop the loaded NL Central. The sample size is Josh Donaldson Canada Day Jersey now one-third of the season, which indicates this improved club might be here to stay.

MILWAUKEE — The numbers say Lorenzo Cain is the National League’s most valuable outfielder. Will All-Star Game voters agree?

VOTE: 2018 Camping World MLB All-Star Ballot

View Full Game Coverage

Cain was among the eight Brewers on the ballot at the launch of online voting Friday, as fans once again will select the sta Kevin Pillar Canada Day Jersey rting position players for the 89th Midsummer Classic.

Fans may cast votes for starters at MLB.com and all 30 club sites — on computers, tablets and smartphones — exclusively online using the 2018 Camping World MLB All-Star Ballot until Thursday, July 5, at 10:59 p.m. CT. On smartphones and tablets, fans can also access the ballot via the MLB At Bat and MLB Ballpark mobile apps. Each fan can vote up to five times in any 24-hour period, for a maximum of 35 ballots cast.

Cain, the former Royal who made the American League All-Star team in 2015, moved back to the National League in January when he signed a five-year free agent deal wi Josh Donaldson Canada Day Jersey th the Brewers. He began June atop NL outfielders in both the Fangraphs and Baseball-Reference version of WAR — leading all NL position players in the Baseball-Reference version.

“I say it all the time: If I’m rolling, I feel like everybody else is rolling,” said Cain, who ended May with a .282/.390/.431 slash line. “That’s why I’m trying to get on base as much as possible. I know if I get on base for these guys, it gets them going. I’m trying to be that spark.”

Video: ARI@MIL: Cain nabs Marte trying to extend a single

Cain said that at Coors Field on May 10, after he started what would become a Brewers hot streak by homering on the very first pitch of a 10-game road trip. It was the first of seven victories in 10 games on the trip, which was followed by an 8-2 homestand to close the month of May.

Other Brewers players likely to garner significant All-Star consideration include Travis Shaw, who ranks first among NL third basemen in bWAR, third in fWAR, and tops the NL-leading Brewers with 13 home runs and 36 RBIs. Also deserving is Cain’s fellow outfield newcomer, Christian Yelich, who began June ranked sixth in the NL with a .307 batting average and a .372 on-base percentage.

Ryan Marcus Stroman Canada Day Jersey 2018 Braun homers in defeat

CHICAGO — Early on, it looked as if the Brewers’ recent success would continue, but the White Sox took advantage of shaky pitching and sloppy fielding to rally for eight unanswered runs in an 8-3 victory over Milwaukee on Friday night at Guaranteed Rate Field.

Chase Anderson was inconsistent, allowing four runs (three earned) on five hits in 5 2/3 innings. But the right-hander might have fared better with a little help defensively.

The Brewers entered having won five of six and just completed an 8-2 Kevin Pillar Canada Day Jersey homestand. Ryan Braun‘s two-run homer in the first inning off Hector Santiago got Milwaukee off to a promising start, and the Brewers were up 3-0 in the third.

“Our chances were in the first three innin Men’s Majestic 6 Marcus Stroman Toronto Blue Jays Authentic Scarlet Canada Day Red Jersey gs,” Brewers Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey 2018 manager Craig Counsell said. “We had runners on base. We had chances the first three innings to get that next hit, and it just didn’t happen.”

Anderson rolled through the first two innings, but he immediately ran into trouble in the third. Charlie Tilson‘s single scored  Marcus Stroman Canada Day Jersey Ada Josh Donaldson Canada Day Jersey m Engel. Travis Shaw then fielded Trayce Thompson‘s ground ball cleanly, but his throw to first base sailed past Braun and into the dugout, which scored Tilson and sent Thompson to second. Yoan Moncada followed with a single to center to drive in Thompson and tie the score at 3.

“I wish I could have picked up [Shaw] on that error,” Anderson said. “He doesn’t ever make that.”

Anderson retired two in the sixth, before a Jose Abreu single ended his night. Boone Logan walked the White Sox DH to put two runners on. Matt Albers then was brought in and Tim Anderson greeted him with a line drive to left. Christian Yelich charged in but couldn’t make the catch. The ball hit about a foot in front of him and rolled past him. Both runners scored and Anderson was credited with a two-run triple for a 5-3 White Sox lead.

“I went after it like I was trying to catch the ball,” Yelich said. “I kind of got caught in no man’s land.”

Omar Narvaez followed with an RBI single to plate Anderson and make it 6-3. The White Sox added a pair of runs in the seventh to stretch the lead to 8-3.

SOUND SMART
Although the Brewers and White Sox rarely face each other these days, this was not Anderson’s first start at Guaranteed Rate Field. He made his Major League debut in the ballpark on May 11, 2014, with the D-backs. He allowed one run on two hits over 5 1/3 innings to get the win in a 5-1 victory.

Jhoulys Chacin looks to bounce back from a rough outing in his last start when the Brewers face the White Sox in a 1:10 p.m. CT start on Saturday. The right-hander allowed five runs on eight hits on Sunday against the Mets, but he received a no-decision in the Brewers’ 8-7 comeback win. Right-hander James Shields pitches for the White Sox, still looking for his first win since Opening Day.

Zach Davies lands on DL as Ji-Man C Marcus Stroman Canada Day Jersey 2018 hoi returns

CHICAGO — After a pair of subpar starts, Brewers right-hander Zach Davies Josh Donaldson Canada Day Jersey landed back on the 10-day disabled list Friday.

Davies’ injury is the same one that sidelined him for three and a half weeks in April and May — right rotator cuff inflammation.

CHICAGO — After a pair of subpar starts, Brewers right-hander Zach Davies landed back on the 10-day disabled list Friday.

Davies’ injury is the same one that sidelined him for three and a half weeks in April and May — right rotator cuff inflammation. To take his spot, the team recalled left-handed-hitting first baseman Ji-Man Choi from Triple-A Colorado Springs ahead of five straight road games against the White Sox and Indians with the designated hitter in play.

View Full Game Coverage

A shoulder issue that originally was expected to cost Davies only one start has now bothered the right-hander for more than a month.

“There’s nothing new there,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. “I think we expect it to be a short stint [on the DL], but I think the reason we did this is to make sure we get past this. If it takes a little more time, then it takes a little more time.

“He’ll play a little catch [Saturday], so we’re not shutting him down by any means. We’ve got to get whatever’s bugging him. We’ve just got to get that little irritation out of there before he goes back out there.”

Davies returned from his first DL stint on May 24 against the Mets and pitched again on Tuesday against the Cardinals, allowing nine earned runs and 14 hits in nine innings over those games, both losses.

In the Mets start, Davies fell on his right shoulder after deflecting a comebacker. He said that caused some soreness into his outing against the Cardinals.

“Everything hasn’t felt great the last couple games starting back,” Davies said, “but you’re at the top level — you’ve got to find it some time.”

Davies’ move back to the DL comes amid a series of off-days for the Brewers that could allow the team to navigate its schedule without a significant disruption to the starting rotation. As of Friday afternoon, the team had not identified any probable starters beyond their current three-game series against the White Sox.

Choi is already in his third stint in the Majors this season.

“It was hard going down this time, but I definitely have the confidence I can play,” Choi said through a translator.

Video: MIL@MIN: Choi clobbers a solo homer in the 2nd

In a separate roster move Friday, the Brewers announced that catcher Jett Bandy had cleared waivers and been out Kevin Pillar Canada Day Jersey righted to Colorado Springs. Milwaukee hoped to keep Bandy, who has a .533 OPS through 64 big league at-bats this season, in the organization as catching depth.

“He’ll get some more regu Men’s Majestic 6 Marcus Stroman Toronto Blue Jays Authentic Scarlet Canada Day Red Jersey lar playing time and, hopefully, get his offensive program back on track,” Counsell said.

Worth noting
First baseman Eric Thames (left thumb surgery) took batting practice on the field for the first time Friday in Arizona.

“He’s doing really good,” Counsell said. “He’s making progress, and if he keeps going this way, we’ll see him in rehab games next week.”

Keston Marcus Stroman Canada Day Jersey 2018 Hiura leads Thursday’s top prospects

Here’s MLB Pipeline’s roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Thursday.

 

Here’s MLB Pipeline’s roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Thursday.

:: Complete prospect coverage ::

After a career night at the plate in the Carolina League, Keston Hiura is moving up to Double-A.

The Brewers’ No. 1 prospect (No. 49 overall) was perfect at the plate on Thursday, going 5-for-5 with a pair of solo home runs in Class A Advanced Carolina’s 9-0 win over Lynchburg. The five hits and two home runs both marked new career highs for Hiura, who also scored three runs in the contest.

Following the game, it was announced by Mudcats manager Joe Ayrault that the 21-year-old second baseman would be promoted to Double-A Biloxi on Friday.

“It was funny because tonight, the game he was having, a couple of fans were yelling, ‘Send this guy up!'” Ayrault told MiLB.com. “I was kind of laughing to myself like, ‘Yeah, well he is going up after tonight’s game,’ so it was a great finish to his Carolina stint this season.”

After notching three singles in as many at-bats — he reached in the first inning on what initially was ruled an error, only to later be changed to a hit — Hiura opened the seventh inning with a leadoff homer to left field and then added another solo shot to the opposite in the ninth.

Hiura found his groove offensively during the second half of May and closed out the month by batting .450 with three homers and seven doubles over his final 14 games. Altogether, the 2017 first-rounder (No. 9 overall) posted a .316/.377/.524 batting line with 38 runs scored and 23 RBIs over 50 games in the Carolina League. Of his 65 hits, Hiura compiled seven home runs, 16 doubles and three triples.

“Everybody knew when he came in that we drafted a great bat,” Ayrault said. “Our scouts did a heck of a job getting him. From Day 1, he’s hit. The guy is locked in. He’s a baseball player.

“He’s one of those guys who’s just flat-out a pure professional hitter. At this stage of the game, it’s tough for me to compare the guys that I’ve been around, watching them hit. This guy’s just a professional hitter. He uses the whole field. He’s got power to all fields and good plate discipline.”

Marcos Diplan (No. 11) paced Carolina on the mound by racking up a season-high 10 strikeouts over 5 2/3 scoreless innings to record his second win in 11 starts. The 21-year-old right-hander allowed four hits and two walks in the outing, throwing 60 of his 95 pitches for strikes.

The scoreless performance was Diplan’s third in as many starts, and he’s now allowed just three earned runs in his last 24 2/3 frames (five starts) to lower his ERA from 5.06 to 3.16.

The rest of the best performances from top prospects Thursday

• No. 3 overall prospect Eloy Jimenez‘s (White Sox No. 1) first-inning home run was all the run support right-hander Spencer Adams (No. 14) needed as Double-A Birmingham blanked Chattanooga, 3-0. Jimenez’s homer, a three-run shot, was his 10th this season and also extended his hitting streak to 10 games. Overall, the 21-year-old has produced a .331/.373/.623 batting line with 24 extra-base hits and 39 RBIs in just 38 games. Adams dominated in his best start of the season, working eight scoreless frames of two-hit ball with six strikeouts.

• No. 10 overall prospect Bo Bichette (Blue Jays’ No. 2) belted his fourth home run as he collected multiple hits for the third time in four games for Double-A New Hampshire. The 20-year-old shortstop put his team on the board with a leadoff home run and later added a single to finish 2-for-5 with two RBIs. He’s hitting .412 with three homers, 10 RBIs and 10 runs scored over his last nine contests, during which he’s improved his season average from .244 to .272.

Bichette belts solo homer

• No. 78 overall prospect Adonis Medina (Phillies’ No. 2) was sharp in a second straight start for Class A Advanced Clearwater, allowing one unearned run on three hits in seven innings. Throwing 59 of his 87 pitches for strikes, Medina issued one walk, struck out six and generated 13 ground-ball outs. The 21-year-old righty has given up just one earned run on six hits in his last 12 innings, during which he’s lowered his ERA from 6.67 to 4.97.

• No. 81 overall prospect Carter Kieboom (Nationals’ No. 3) delivered a grand slam with two outs in the fourth inning and finished 2-for-4, but it wasn’t enough to keep Class A Advanced Potomac from falling to Salem, 10-8, in Game 2 of a doubleheader. The 20-year-old shortstop has hit three grand slams this season, all against Salem. He finishes the month with a .391/.458/.576 batting line on the heels of hitting .198/.308/.347 in April.

Kieboom hits grand slam

Astros’ No. 6 prospect Cionel Perez posted five scoreless innings in a no-decision for Double-A Corpus Christi to lower his ERA to 1.66, the best mark in the Texas League among hurlers with at least 40 innings. The 22-year-old lefty allowed three hits and one walk while striking out seven and throwing 51 of his 72 pitches for strikes.

• Brewers’ No. 23 prospect Zack Brown posted a career-high 10 strikeouts over seven scoreless innings to lead Double-A Biloxi past Mississippi, 9-1. The 23-year-old righty permitted four hits and did not issue a walk, throwing 65 of his 86 pitches for strikes. He’s pitched to a 2.76 ERA with 62 strikeouts, 17 walks and a .227 opponents’ average in 65 1/3 innings (11 starts).

Giants’ No. 3 prospect Steven Duggar filled out the box score by going 4-for-5 with four extra-base hits and three runs scored out of the leadoff spot in Triple-A Sacramento’s 7-3 win over El Paso. All four of his hits were for Josh Donaldson Canada Day Jersey extra bases, as Duggar racked up three doubles, pushing his season total to 12, and a triple in the victory.

Duggar’s third double

Indians’ No. 5 prospect Nolan Jones and Oscar Gonzalez (No. 18) both doubled and homered while combining for six hits and five RBIs in Class A Lake County’s extra-inning loss against Lansing. Jones went deep for a second straight game and the third time in his past four contests to finish 2-for-5 with three RBIs. Gonzalez, meanwhile, tallied a career-best four hits (4-for-5) including his seventh home run.

• Nationals’ No. 9 prospect Daniel Johnson tallied three hits (including two doubles) and scored three runs out of the leadoff spot and Drew Ward (No. 26) blasted a grand slam en route to a career-best six RBIs for Double-A Harrisburg in a 12-2 rout of Hartford. Johnson finished 3-for-5 at the plate, giving the 22-year-old outfielder a .318 average and 10 runs scored over his past 10 contests. Ward has also been hot over his last 10 games, posting a .333 average with eight extra-base hits and 14 RBIs. Right-hander Jefry Rodriguez (No. 16) was exceptional on the mound as he allowed two unearned runs on one hit in six in Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey 2018 nings, striking out nine and walking three.

Padres’ No. 8 prospect Logan Allen and reliever Jason Jeste Marcus Stroman Canada Day Jersey r tossed a combined no-hitter for Double-A San Antonio in a 6-0 win against Tulsa. The 21-year-old lefty worked seven innings, issuing five walks and striking out seven while throwing a season-high 105 pitches (67 strikes). He’s struck out at least six batters in each of his 11 starts for the Missions, totaling 76 strikeouts in 66 2/3 innings to go along with a 7-2 record and a 3.24 ERA. No. 7 overall prospect Fernando Tatis Jr. backed Allen with a two-run home run, his 10th this season. The 19-year-old shortstop finished May with a .336/.414/.639 slash line after hitting .177/.231/.333 in April.

Brewers almost ha Marcus Stroman Canada Day Jersey 2018 d Jake Arrieta in 2005

MILWAUKEE — The idea, the reporter told former Brewers scouting director Jack Zduriencik, was to pick one prospect in each franchise’s history who was drafted but did not sign, then went on to be an impact player elsewhere.

The sentence is barely finished when Zduriencik answers.

MILWAUKEE — The idea, the reporter told former Brewers scouting director Jack Zduriencik, was to pick one prospect in each franchise’s history who was drafted but did not sign, then went on to be an impact player elsewhere.

The sentence is barely finished when Zduriencik answers.

2018 Draft order | 2018 Draft: June 4-6 | All-time Draft picks

Jake Arrieta,” Zduriencik said. “That’s the guy.”

Yes, Arrieta was nearly a Brewer. Milwaukee drafted him in the 26th round of the 200 Men’s Majestic 6 Marcus Stroman Toronto Blue Jays Authentic Scarlet Canada Day Red Jersey 5 Draft but he didn’t sign with the club.

:: 2018 Draft coverage ::

In running nine Drafts for Milwaukee from 2000-08, Zduriencik laid the foundation for the Brewers’ breakthroughs in ’08, when they snapped a 26-year postseason drought, and ’11, when they played within two victories of the World Series. But Zduriencik still wonders about a few players he drafted and couldn’t sign. Andrew Bailey is one, a 16th-round pick in ’05 who went instead to the A’s a year later and won the American League Rookie of the Year Award in ’09.

And there are others in franchise history before Zduriencik came along. The most notable is Nomar Garciaparra, Milwaukee’s fifth-round pick in 1991 who went to Georgia Tech, got drafted by Boston in ’94 and went on to a stellar big league career.

For Zduriencik, however, Arrieta is the big “what if.”

“That’s the guy I wish we would have signed,” he said.

A right-hander who grew up in Plano, Texas, Arrieta was drafted out of high school by the Reds in the 31st round in 2004 but declined to sign. He went to Weatherford Co Marcus Stroman Canada Day Jersey llege, a junior college 80 miles from home, where Zduriencik remembers reports detailing a right-hander with a big, projectable frame throwing 88-90 mph with a promising curveball. The Brewers picked him in the 26th round a year later as a “draft and follow,” a since-retired practice by which a team owned a player’s rights for a full year, and could further scout him before deciding whether to negotiate a contract.

Zduriencik found some future big leaguers via that method — Lorenzo Cain and left-handers Manny Parra and Dana Eveland among them.

“I always felt like if a guy really came on the next year and you had to pay him a lot of money, well, he earned the money,” Zduriencik said. “Now he’s pitching well, you’ve got him under your control, hopefully you’re winning and you have to pay the guy.”

With Arrieta, the Brewers never got that far.

In the middle of the summer, Texas Christian University offered Arrieta a scholarship.

“That’s very unusual for a four-year school to steal a kid out of junior college when he still has another year left to play in junior college,” Zduriencik said. “But he ended up deciding he wasn’t that interested in signing. He wanted to go to TCU, an up-and-coming program. He decided, ‘I’ll take my chances [in the Draft] two years from now.’ He did a very unusual thing.

“We could have still signed him in that summer [before he went to TCU], but it kind of changed the whole thing. Basically, we were under the impression that his price had now gone up.”

For Arrieta, the decision literally paid off.

The Orioles drafted him in the fifth round in 2007 and signed him for $1.1 million, a record at the time for that round.

Now, Zduriencik is clear-eyed about the fact it took years for Arrieta to develop into the horse who helped pitch the Cubs to the 2016 World Series. He made it to Baltimore in ’10 and pitched to a 5.46 ERA and four walks per nine innings in parts of four seasons before Baltimore traded Arrieta and Pedro Strop to Chicago in July of ’13 for Steve Clevenger and Scott Feldman.

Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey 2018 Would the Brewers have been similarly impatient? General manager Doug Melvin found himself criticized over the years for being too patient with young pitchers with promising  Kevin Pillar Canada Day Jersey arms. Parra was one. Had Arrieta followed the same timeline with Milwaukee, he would have entered his first full season in the Majors in 2011, just as the Brewers were in “go for it” mode after acquiring Zack Greinke and Shaun Marcum in offseason trades. How long a leash would they have afforded Arrieta?

Zduriencik sometimes wonders.

“I always say this: Milwaukee was the best time of my career,” he said. “I loved the city, I loved being there, I loved what we accomplished while we were there together. I love all the guys who worked for me there and went on to be scouting directors. …

“Those were such good times there. What we accomplished, I thought it was pretty good. I didn’t dislike any of the other places I worked, but that challenge at that time in Milwaukee was so much fun.”

Zduriencik went on to be GM of the Mariners through 2015. Now he does pre- and postgame radio in Pittsburgh and occasional television work.

It’s fun, he said, thinking back on what might have been with various Draft picks.

“Arrieta is definitely the one,” Zduriencik said, “just because of how good he became later on. … At some point, all of a sudden, he was taking it to Josh Donaldson Canada Day Jersey another planet.”
