Jody Gerut Released

By on August 13, 2010

McCalvy puts it best:

#Brewers reinstated OF Jody Gerut from the disabled list and released him. No place for him with Lo Cain playing so well.

The Brewers are loaded with outfielders now, with both Cain and Chris Dickerson on the team now as well as Carlos Gomez on his rehab assignment. I expected Gerut to hit well – he hit 14 HRs in a short season with San Diego in 2008 – but it just wasn’t to be, and Tony Gwynn Jr. has turned out to be a perfect fit in San Diego despite looking nothing like a Major League player during his time with the Brewers.

I thought the Brewers would come out ahead in this trade, but Gwynn has turned himself into a solid big league player and Gerut might be out of baseball. Overall, though, it’s hard to be disappointed with the state of the Brewers outfield right now, so it’s hard to get too bent out of shape about this one.
