Recommended Posts

Didn't see a thread on him.  Anything to see here this season?

I can’t see him playing with the current outfield log jam, he’s blocked by Yelich, Cain, Santana and then there is Braun and Thames at 1B, with no guarantee that Braun will stick at 1B

Yup. Last year when they didn't have Cain and Yelich it felt like Broxton was squeezed for playing time. He still holds some value if traded or if guys get hurt and even if he is just a bench player he will get steals as a PR and will likely get a start here and there. A 1 dollar flier in my Auction leagues.

Called up. Needs a pick up?

 

Braun, Thames, Santana, Yelich, and Hernan Perez should still get ABs before him.

Leads AAA in steals! But yeah, too crowded in Milwaukee unfortunately to help us.

Santana is in AAA, but otherwise ...

not that Broxton is some hot prospect anymore, but why call him up and not really play him. he has been productive in AAA. 9 HR and 24 SB. still striking out a lot though, 35.6% in AAA.

Well they prob did not want to yank Santana off his assignment right away, and Perez will be needed at 3rd to fill in for Shaw...Brox is a back-up OF

I think with Domingo down and Cain banged up he actually could get a fair amount of run, if only to showcase him for a potential trade.  Nobody's going to give them much for him even if he rakes given how awful his plate discipline is, but if he's a throw-in that can get a deal for a back-end starter without giving up a true prospect, that's a pretty good outcome.

Well what a statement today. 3 for 4. 3R 2HR 4RBI and 1SB. Way to fill up the stat line.  Wish there wasn’t so much congestion in the brewers outfield. And there’s even rumors of the Brew Crew acquiring Dietrich which would clog up the outfield even more.

Not a long track record of major league success plus had over 100 k's in milb this year.   Doubt there's sustained success happening here...

He's a nice 4th OF (in real life MLB, not fantasy).

wouldnt count him out just yet.. adding another year of experience, could be an intriguing pick up. Power and speed combo is up there
