Prospect of the Day:  2B Brooks Conrad

The 32-year-old utility infielder was unable to make the big league squad out of spring training and then suffered a minor injury to begin the Triple-A season, but he has since enjoyed a torrid stretch at the plate. He extended his hitting streak to nine games on Tuesday evening and has now homered in back-to-back games, as well.

The Brewers’ bench desperately needs some pop — especially from the right side — which is why many advocated Conrad for a big league role coming out of spring training. After all, Brewers fans can only see Cesar Izturis come to the plate against a left-handed pitcher in a key situation so many times before losing their collective sanity. One has to think that Conrad will be up with the big league team in relatively short order, especially now that Mat Gamel could miss significant time with a knee injury (the team is calling it a twisted knee, for now).

Expectations from Conrad need to be realistic, however. The California native offers value with his bat, but is severely limited with the glove. He saw time this spring at second base and first base and did not particularly look fluid at either position. Still, he fits the context of this Brewers team at this time. Ron Roenicke needs to have a right-handed hitter to call upon in key pinch-hit situations. Throughout the spring, that appeared to be Brooks Conrad. It still appears that way … except he continues to sit in Triple-A Nashville.

    Love these posts Jim!
    Nice to see peralta have a bounce back start. I still think he will need to come back up to put estrada back in the bullpen so it goes back to some consistency. Jungmann line looks like he should have had a W but apparently the offense didnt want to play.
    Interseting to see Kintzler back but in hig A ball? Probably just easing him back in but man he would be a shot in the arm for our dismantled bullben!
