February 22, 2015
Kevin O'Brien suggests that what the Brewers get from Jean Segura this season will go a long way towards deciding if they are a contender this year, after an offseason that featured few big changes.
2015 Fantasy Outlook
A Rule 5 selection from the Pirates in 2013, Wang remains a Brewer after finishing 2014 on the team’s major league roster. Wang showed that he was not ready for big league pitching by giving up 21 earned runs in 17.1 innings with the Brewers, but the team liked his potential enough to keep him on the roster in order to avoid offering him back to Pittsburgh. Wang will open 2015 in the minors, and he will spend the year developing after spending most of last season sitting in the Brewers’ bullpen.
