    Fansided: Milwaukee Brewers: Best players in the Rookie League?

    Do your remember who was played at the Rookie League level for the Milwaukee Brewers in 2018? Brice Turang and Aaron Ashby. Yesterday's draft picks often become today's top prospects, and it wouldn't be a huge shock to see a few guys on this year's Rookie League roster make an impact soon.

    Rookie League rosters are usually filled with guys who just finished high school, international free agents making their stateside debuts, and guys working their way back from injuries. The previous sentence actually sounds a lot like the 2019 Rocky Mountain Vibes.

    The Milwaukee Brewers Rookie League affiliate finished 32-43 in their first season in existence, but they still had a few impressive performances.

    Brew Crew Ball: What We Learned: Winning streak up to 4 straight, 11 of 12

    Brewers (Adrian Houser) @ Padres (Dinelson Lamet) | 6:40 pm

    NL Central Standings

    In the bullpen, Drew Pomeranz has found success and increased his velocity, helping the Brewers on their postseason push.

    A well-rested Freddy Peralta has been a recent revelation in the Brewers' bullpen
    Todd Rosiak, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

    Another key component of the bullpen has been Freddy Peralta. With enough rest between appearances, Peralta has been pitching very well from the bullpen.

    The Brewers now have playoff odds better than 55 percent if you ask two prominent websites
    JR Radcliffe, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

    As the Brewers surge continues, their playoff chances are better than 50% now, though it's still not a lock.

    Fansided: Milwaukee Brewers: How did Brandon Woodruff look in his return?

    Losing Brandon Woodruff was a tough blow for the Milwaukee Brewers to overcome. The team was already missing several starters, but they were able to stay afloat because they had an All-Star-level arm at the top of their rotation. However, Woodruff felt a pain in his left oblique, and needed almost two full months on the shelf. Woodruff returned to the mound for the first time since he needed time off on Tuesday night. Did he look like an All-Star or was shaking off the rust?

    How did Woodruff really do against the Padres?

    The opponent may have had something to do with it, but Woodruff looked great against the San Diego Padres on Tuesday evening.

    Fansided: Milwaukee Brewers: Drew Pomeranz Basically Filling Corey Knebel's Role

    When the Milwaukee Brewers acquired Drew Pomeranz back in July, most fans saw his struggles as a starting pitcher and were not pleased with his acquisition, instead hoping for old friend Will Smith in return.

    But Pomeranz has been phenomenal since moving to the bullpen full-time and he's provided a huge boost to the bullpen.

    Drew Pomeranz as a reliever: 1.94 ERA with 41 strikeouts in 23.2 innings. That'll do.

    -- Eno Sarris (@enosarris) September 18, 2019

    Few expected these kinds of strikeout numbers from Pomeranz and this kind of success.

    Brew Crew Ball: Finally, "Ryan Braun Forever" shirts are available!

    The hashtag was born in early 2016.

    The Milwaukee Brewers were in the early stages of what most fans believed would be a long and painful rebuild. A growing list of trades had been made starting the previous summer with Doug Melvin's final trade deadline and carried into the winter with new GM David Stearns, who turned over half the 40-man roster. But I bristled at the idea of trading away franchise icon Ryan Braun.

    As we now know, Braun survived the rebuild. He received MVP votes that year in 2016 and has aged rather gracefully in the years since; he still has never posted a below-average batting line and continues to be a legitimate power-speed threat, reaching the 20+ home run, 10+ stolen base plateau for the 10th season of his career in 2019.

    Fansided: Milwaukee Brewers: Who starts a play-in game?

    Starting pitching has been a challenge for the Milwaukee Brewers in 2019. They've gone from a team that had a surplus of starters in Spring Training to a team that has been forced to piece together a rotation. However, if the team wins the Wild Card or ties the Chicago Cubs for the second Wild Card, the Brewers will have more work to do. But who would take the mound?

    How about Jordan Lyles?

    Jordan Lyles has been the Milwaukee Brewers most consistent starter in the second half of the season. Lyles has made nine starts in a Brewers uniform, and he owns a 2.

    Brew Crew Ball: Brewers keep on rolling as they beat the Padres, 5-1

    The final home stand of the season began tonight for the Milwaukee Brewers, and their opponent was the San Diego Padres who are in town for four games. Zach Davies got the start for the Brew Crew. Former Angels' ace Garrett Richards, took the mound for the Padres for the first time in 2019 since signing a two-year deal following Tommy John.

    Milwaukee scored first in this one. Ryan Braun led the inning off with a laser beam into the right-center field gap, resulting in a double. He advanced to third via a wild pitch by Richards. Cory Spangenberg was able to plate Braun with a single up the middle, and the Brewers were off and going, 1-0.

    Fansided: Milwaukee Brewers: Just Enjoy The Ride Everyone!

    There's just two weeks left in the Major League Baseball season. The Milwaukee Brewers will enter that final two week sprint just one game out of the second wild card spot in the National League, which is currently held by the Chicago Cubs.

    They'll also enter it 2.5 games back of the Washington Nationals for the first wild card spot, and just three games back of the St. Louis Cardinals for the NL Central Division lead.

    Though the Brewers may be on outside looking in to start this two week run, they may be the team that's in the best position to make the playoffs.

    Fansided: Milwaukee Brewers: Extension Talks Started For Jordan Lyles?

    When the Milwaukee Brewers acquired Jordan Lyles back in July, few thought he would be much more than rotation depth. But he's been one of the Crew's best starting pitchers since arriving, proving all of us wrong.

    Now, reports are coming out that the Brewer have initiated contract talks with Lyles. Robert Murray of The Athletic (subscription required), had this to say today on his 'Section 422' podcast:

    I know we've mentioned it before, the possibility of him coming back, even for next year. To my knowledge, the interest right now is mutual between the Brewers and Lyles about coming back.
