Being one of the last teams in their division to do so, the Milwaukee Brewers finally dropped their Summer Training Camp roster of the 45 men that will be training at Miller Park leading up to Opening Day 2.0. The nice little roster has a logo for it and everything.
Something to point out is that the Brewers only announced 45 men training at Miller Park compared to the entire 60-player pool like other teams were doing. The organization still has yet to name the other 15 that will presumably be going up the road to Appleton to train there at the alternate training site. One of the players already known to be going up to the Timber Rattlers stadium is Tyrone Taylor after it was announced that he was optioned to the secondary squad on Saturday.
The roster that the Brewers put out looks fairly similar to the one seen in Spring Training before the shut-down in early March. As many reporters have mentioned, there are names on the 40-man who aren’t on the 45-man training roster. MLB.com’s Adam McCalvy mentioned names such as Corey Ray, Trey Supak and Angel Perdomo as some of the missing names left off of the Miller Park training roster. Those players were assigned to the Minor Leagues before everything shut down, so chances are that they will probably be training in Appleton.
Some names stand out on the “big-league camp” roster such as RHP Shelby Miller, RHP Zack Brown were given non-roster invitees to the camp along with seven others. Keon Broxton was almost among the list of non-roster invitees, respectively. While all of them have a chance of making the “opening day” 30-man roster, they have to prove that they have the skills and have what it takes to be on that special roster once training camp is over and done with.
