Brewers Make Several Roster Decisions

StearnsAtMMP

Through a series of tweets by beat writers Adam McCalvy (MLB.com), Tom Haudricourt & Todd Rosiak (Milwaukee Journal/Sentinel), several decisions which directly impact the 25-man roster of the Milwaukee Brewers were disseminated from Spring Training on Sunday morning.

With an opt-out decision looming today, first and foremost relief pitcher Blaine Boyer was told that he has made the 25-man roster. The move will eventually require a corresponding 40-man roster move as Boyer was in camp on a Minor League contract, but there are a handful of 60-day DL candidates so finding a spot (or two or three) won’t be difficult.

The other player who got the best news was OF/1B Ramon Flores who was also told he’ll make the 25-man roster. Flores was acquired this off-season in trade from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for infielder Luis Sardiñas in a swap of players who were likely to be waived by their original clubs. Flores had a strong Cactus League and also showed a little versatility in being able to potentially backup Chris Carter at first base.

As there are ultimately so few spots, many more players get the proverbial red ticket in their locker.

Among those informed that they’ll begin the regular season in the minors are catchers Josmil Pinto and Manny Piña who were told they’ll be in Triple-A. Catcher Adam Weisenburger will apparently join them, giving Colorado Springs a trio of backstops.

Will Middlebrooks was informed today that he’ll also be assigned to Triple-A after vying for a spot as a backup corner infielder. Once there he is expected to rotate at the corner infield positions with Andy Wilkins and Garin Cecchini.

Joining them in the high-altitude infield will be Jake Elmore who was hoping to make the big league team as a reserve but came up short.

In the outfield competition, Eric Young Jr. was told that he’ll also head to the Centennial State when camp breaks. He’ll be joined officially by Shane Peterson who, after passing through waivers earlier this winter, was also in camp on a minor-league deal.

And finally, one official optioning came down as reliever David Goforth was sent out. Even with all the injuries to the bullpen recently, Goforth having minor league options was likely a key factor as others in the running for just a couple of spots had less team control due to no options or contract opt-outs like Boyer.

All told, this leaves the following combination of players in camp:

  • Yadiel Rivera, Rule 5 Colin Walsh, and non-roster invitee Hernan Perez are competing for what is likely two open infield jobs.
  • Keon Broxton (options remaining), Kirk Nieuwenhuis (no options), and Alex Presley (NRI) competing for likely two backup outfield spots.
  • Chris Capuano (opt-out), Franklin Morales (opt-out), Ariel Peña (no options), Tyler Cravy (options remaining) are in play for two bullpen jobs

Brewers By the (Jersey) Numbers ’15 – #77 David Goforth

BBtJN Logo

Another day closer to Opening Day, another ballplayer profiled on “Brewers By the (Jersey) Numbers” 2015 edition.

We’re 11 weeks out from the Brewers opener on April 6. That equates to 77 days for those who were told that there would be no math.

Wearing 77 on his jersey once Pitchers and Catchers report on February 20 is the newest Brewers draftee to be added to the 40-man roster…

David Goforth.

DavidGoforthBBTJN

This is the first time I’ve had the pleasure of writing a full article on David Paul Goforth. Last season he was announced as a non-roster invitee a full 11 days after his profile otherwise would have been written up. So we’ll go through some background first before getting into his 2014 and outlook for 2015.

The 5’10”, 205lb reliever was drafted by the Brewers in the 7th round of the 2011 draft out of Ole Miss (the University of Mississippi). Unlike yesterday’s subject, Taylor Jungmann, Goforth would sign right away and actually appear in 19 games for the short-season rookie ball affiliate Helena Brewers in 2011. Despite being targeted as an eventual relief pitcher, Goforth began the 2012 season in the Wisconsin Timber Rattler’s rotation. The Brewers use the philosophy that relievers can develop their repertoire and arm strength more quickly by beginning their development as starting pitchers. It’s a path they’ve taken with many players other than Goforth, one that they’ll likely continue to utilize.

Goforth would spend all of 2012 with the Class-A Timber Rattlers, logging 150.2 IP and a robust 4.66 ERA across 28 starts. That wasn’t much of a worry long-term however, given the plan and the development-based goals. The right-hander would begin 2013 with the Class-A Advanced Brevard County Manatees, still starting, but would earn a promotion to (primarily) the Class-AA Huntsville bullpen in the second half of June. While his numbers were never earthshattering, a combined 3.17 ERA and 3.46 FIP in 125.0 IP were enough to garner Goforth’s inclusion among the Brewers contingent sent to the Arizona Fall League. Goforth would make 12 appearances, striking out 15 hitters over 12.0 IP. He performed well enough that I thought he might make the step up and start this past season at Class-AAA Nashville.

Instead, Goforth would spend all of 2014 with Huntsville. In 64.2 IP over 54 games (including 44 games finished), Goforth would record 27 saves. He’d tally just 46 strikeouts, and walk 29 (for an untenable 4.0 BB/9). His ERA was elevated at 3.76 but part of that was no doubt fueled by a .290 BABIP against.

The end of the 2014 season brought with it an incredibly important decision for Goforth. When it came time to determine whether he deserved protection on the Brewers 40-man roster, the front office thought about it for several more hours than the other additions (Jungmann, Michael Strong, and Yadiel Rivera). When the Brewers first announced 40-man roster adds, it was the other three whose names were mentioned. But in the end, Goforth’s profile as a late-inning reliever whose fastball sits in the mid 90s (touching 98 MPH) who carries a trio of secondary pitches (cutter, curve, change) thanks to his time starting was enough to worry the Brewers that someone else might pluck him in the Rule 5 Draft. After all, relief pitchers are the easiest to “hide” in the middle of a bullpen.

Chances are good that he’ll make his Major League debut in 2015, but the bottom line is that while Goforth has a plus fastball and a promising cutter, it’s his command of his arsenal as opposed to its composition that’ll get him to Milwaukee and keep him there. But it all starts again in about a month at Maryvale for the 26-year-old Mississippi-born fireballer. It could be a season that makes his baseball career.

Brewers Jersey Number Updates

image

Several of the newest jersey numbers for Brewers 40-man rosterees were updated last night.

If you’ve read me for any length of time, you probably know what a number nerd I am by now. After all, these numbers are an impetus behind my annual countdown to Opening Day.

Without further ado, here are the number updates which also will be where you can find these players in said countdown.

Logan Schafer, who gave up his #22 when Matt Garza was signed during last year’s Brewers On Deck fanfest, now had to give up his #1 after the team retired it for outgoing commissioner and former owner Bud Selig. Schafer gets #7 for 2015.

Brooks Hall was listed without a number for a time but returns to the 63 he wore last spring as a new 40-man add.

Similarly, Taylor Jungmann returns to the 78 he’s worn as a past non-roster invitee.

David Goforth will wear #77 when pitchers and catchers report to Maryvale in his first spring on the 40-man.

Number 76 now belongs to lefty Mike Strong as he contends for a specialist role in the big league bullpen.

And now for the guys new to the organization…

Big off-season acquisition and new starting first baseman Adam Lind will wear the 24 used by Lyle Overbay last season.

Catcher Juan Centeno has been assigned #66.

Finally for these updates, shortstop Yadiel Rivera will don #65 in his first big league camp.

(As of this writing, new corner infielder Luis Jimenez and new outfielder Shane Peterson hadn’t been assigned a number…at least not ones that were updated on the Brewers website.)

Don’t Call It a Comeback

BBtJN Logo

My annual countdown to Opening Day will return for another season!

There has been some decent 40-man roster turnover since Spring Training. I mark the passage of time from (roughly) the turn of the calendar until Brewers Opening Day by previewing players who wear a certain uniform number on the corresponding day.

We’re 98 days away from Opening Day, so we won’t get underway on this thing quite yet, but once the countdown coincides with a jersey, you’ll see the first column go up.

I call the series “Brewers By the (Jersey) Numbers” and it works a little something like this:

  • Opening Day is April 6, 2015.
  • March 29th is eight days before April 6th.
  • Ryan Braun wears number 8 on his jersey.
  • I’ll write an article reviewing Ryan Braun’s 2014 and looking ahead to his 2015 and post it on March 29, 2015.

Make sense? Here’s another example:

  • Jonathan Broxton wears number 51.
  • 51 days before April 6th is February 14th.
  • I’ll post my Broxton column on February 14th.

I do a column on every player who is on the Brewers 40-man roster along with most Spring Training non-roster invitees. I’ll update this space with a full schedule once the uniform numbers for the newest 40-man additions are announced. I’ll update it again as non-roster invitees are revealed.

Thanks for reading and sticking with me this winter. BBtJN is a very popular series and I thank you for that. Stay tuned!

Brewers “Go” Ahead, Add “Forth” Player to 40-Man

(Because sometimes, puns can’t be helped.)

Following this morning’s announcement of three additions to the Brewers’ 40-man roster, there remained one open spot. I opined to one of my followers on Twitter that I was surprised David Goforth was not among those chosen.

Tom Haudricourt first told us that David Goforth was being considered for a the last remaining open slot on the 40-man roster, and the Rule 5 draft protection that comes along with it. Adam McCalvy then tweeted that Goforth was going to be added to the 40-man roster, according to a source. Naturally, I think it’s a wise move.

Goforth is a right-handed pitcher who seems to have found a home in the back of the bullpen after serving for the majority of 2014 as the closer as Double-A Huntsville. He recorded 27 saves in 44 games finished across 54 appearances. He posted a 3.78 ERA as he was prone to the occasional blow up outing (six games of multiple runs allowed), but far more often than not, Goforth was nails (39 scoreless outings of his 54). He struck out 46 in 64.2 innings, leading one to understand that his forte is generating ground balls. While not elite, Goforth posted a 1.76 ground-ball-to-fly-ball ratio. He throws a heavy ball though that stays in the park though, with a 2014 HR/9 of just 0.28 and a HR-to-fly ball ratio of 4.3%.

The other major calling card that brings Goforth attention as a prospect is that his heavy fastball also sits in the mid-90s and touches 98 MPH. But heat isn’t all he brings. Goforth features a strong cut fastball and is developing potentially above average offerings in a curveball and changeup. As is often cited on prospect reports, and backed up in the numbers, Goforth’s biggest obstacle to a full-time back-end bullpen job in Milwaukee is himself. He needs to improve his command. Many bullpen guys breakthrough “late” according to standard progression, but Goforth just having turned 26 shouldn’t worry anybody from projecting his possible ceiling, in my opinion.
