Brewers Final 2018 Roster | Ticket King Milwaukee

Milwaukee Brewers Tickets
We are less than a month away from the start of the 2018 MLB season. While the team gets busy in Arizona, we can only guess as to the final 25 man roster that will take the field. Some player are a lock, but others are making their move to get a starting position. Here is Ticket King’s best attempt at trying to predict the Milwaukee Brewers Opening Day roster.

Rotation
2. Jimmy Nelson
3. Chase Anderson
4. Yovani Gallardo

Zach Davies emerged a year ago, winning 17 games and establishing himself as a potential top of the rotation option for this club. Chase Anderson will be the two. Jimmy Nelson will be the number three starter when he returns in June. Yovani Gallardo returns to the place where he had his best years. Hopefully, he can find the fountain of youth and be that pitcher again. Jhoulys Chacin gets the 5th spot. Look out for the Brewers to add someone else though, such as Jake Arrieta via free agency.

Bullpen
Matt Albers
Oliver Drake
Jeremy Jeffress
Josh Hader
Brent Suter
Jacob Barnes
Junior Guerra

There are a lot of unknowns in this bullpen. With this projected bullpen, the Brewers carry two lefties, Hader and Suter. Junior Guerra will be the long man. The question is, who is the closer?

Lineup
1. Lorenzo Cain
2. Christian Yelich
3. Ryan Braun
4. Travis Shaw
5. Domingo Santana
6. Stephen Vogt
7. Orlando Arcia
8. Jonathan Villar

The Brewers made headlines this off season when they made two major moves, both on the same day, acquiring Christian Yelich from the Marlins and signing Lorzeno Cain via free agency. Both will be in the lineup opening day. Brett Phillips is expected to begin the season in Triple A while the Brewers find a trade partner for Domingo Santana.

Bench
Eric Thames
Eric Sogard
Keon Broxton
Hernan Perez
Jeff Bandy

Not much to say here. Broxton is the ideal fourth outfielder- he has experience at all three positions, has a strong glove, a good arm, a lot of speed, and can pinch run. Perez is a super utility man. Bandy will be the backup catcher. Thames could be traded any day.
