Milwaukee Brewers All-Time Roster

This is the Milwaukee Brewers all-time roster. I decided to select two players for each infield position, six outfielders (regardless of specific position), and one designated hitter for each AL team. Hitters had to have a minimum of 1,500 plate appearance. For pitching, we selected seven starting pitchers, three non-closers, and two closers. Starting pitchers had to start at least 100 games during their time with the franchise to qualify. Relief pitchers were deemed non-closers if they saved less than 30 games. Closers are pitchers that save more than 30 games.

  • Ray King and Tyler Thornburg? Did you just randomly grab names? Have you never heard of Dan Plesac? Or look at Ken Sanders (2.21 ERA and 61 saves in 195 games) if you want to go obscure. Francisco Rodriquez (2.91 ERA and 95 saves in 263 games) makes more sense. So do 10 other players.
