Brew Crew Ball: It's all coming together for Brandon Woodruff
It can be easy to fall into the trap of thinking that a player is a finished product when he arrives in the big leagues for the first time. Guys like Ronald Acuna, Kris Bryant, Alex Bregman, and Chris Paddack, are just a few examples of players who have come up and dominated from the get-go in recent years. But the reality for most MLB players is that there is an adjustment period -- and often times a lengthy one -- before they becoming the best versions of themselves at the game's highest level.
Now in his third season with the Milwaukee Brewers, things are coming together for 26 year old Brandon Woodruff.

Brew Crew Ball: Jimmy Nelson reinstated from IL, optioned to Triple-A San Antonio
Last night, Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson made his fourth rehab start for Triple-A San Antonio, and manager Craig Counsell had said that they would make a decision on Nelson after that. After his start last night, the Brewers decided to activate him from the IL, but option him to San Antonio.
Jimmy Nelson has been working his way back from a major shoulder injury that had happened in September of 2017. The injury kept him out all of 2018, but he started this season in camp and hoping to make it back to the majors.
Fansided: Milwaukee Brewers: Jimmy Nelson Reinstated, Optioned to Triple-A
The way Jimmy Nelson had been progressing through his time down with the Triple-A San Antonio Missions, it looked like Nelson might be close to rejoining the Milwaukee Brewers. However, a hiccup in Thursday night's start, as well as other factors, might have prompted the decision that was made on Friday.

The Brewers will keep Nelson in Triple-A but his rehab stint is now over. It's just a regular stint in Triple-A now.How did Nelson do in the minors?
Brew Crew Ball: Series Preview: Philadelphia Phillies @ Milwaukee Brewers
The Brewers face another familiar opponent this weekend, as they see the Philadelphia Phillies for the second time in four series, this time at Miller Park.
It's another playoff contender the Brewers will finish playing early in the regular season before they potentially meet again in the postseason, where both teams could look drastically different than they do now.
Still, it may be a blessing to catch the Phillies now, as they still try to get an offense that should be much better than it actually is clicking. After giving up 7 runs to the Phillies in the first game of the last series, Brewers pitching held the Phightin' Nine to 6 total runs over the final three games.
Brew Crew Ball: File away this Milwaukee Brewers pitching prospect as a player to watch
October 27th, 2001 was an important day for baseball in the history of the state of Arizona. It was also one of the formative memories of that cultivated Dylan File's love for the sport.
File was already smitten with the game, beginning in tee ball at a young age where he was coached by his father. "My dad taught me how fun the game is and I never stopped." The Lake Havasu City native attended many Diamondbacks games growing up, but none more grand than game one of the 2001 World Series. Five year old Dylan got to see his favorite player, Luis Gonzalez, tee off for a home run against Mike Mussina as his home state nine lit up the future Hall of Famer en route to a 9-1 victory and a 1-0 series lead.
Fansided: Milwaukee Brewers: Early returns on Keston Hiura
Eight games in the course of a Major League career is an exceptionally small sample size. However, it's entirely possible to know whether or not a top prospect fits the bill or was just a bill of goods. In the case of Keston Hiura and the Milwaukee Brewers, it's clear that the talent is there.How's Hiura hitting?
Since getting the call when third baseman Travis Shaw went on the IL, Hiura has slashed .273/.333/.455 in 36 plate appearances. He's bashed a pair of homers, drawn one walk, and was hit by a pitch twice.
Brew Crew Ball: What We Learned: Brewers comeback to beat Reds
The Brewers have the day off.
Christian Yelich is called a five-tool player, but he doesn't fit the "traditional" view of the five-tool player.
The Brewers needed some luck to win yesterday, and they got it with an unusual double play.
Christian Yelich's occasional back issues are not considered a chronic problem, Counsell says
Tom Haudricourt and Todd Rosiak, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
While Christian Yelich has missed two games, his back issues are not considered to be a regular problem.
Fansided: Milwaukee Brewers Minors: Travis Shaw goes hitless in loss
Shaw got his first rehab start in San Antonio, going 0-3 as the Missions collected just two hits in the 4-0 loss to the Express.
Mauricio Dubon and Cory Spangenberg each got a hit but no other Missions reached base against Cy Sneed and Gabriel Valdez. Sneed was a former Brewers farmhand, but was traded a few years ago in the deal to acquire Jonathan Villar.
Bubba Derby continues to look for his first win of the season, going 3 2/3 innings allowing all four runs for Round Rock.
