  • Brewers' Sal Frelick: Playing third base in Cactus opener

    Frelick will start at third base and lead off for the Brewers on Saturday in their Cactus League opener versus the Padres, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Frelick has been working out in the infield this spring and the Brewers are throwing him into the fire at the hot corner as their spring schedule opens. The 23-year-old's only previous infield experience came with the North Shore Navigators in summer ball back in 2018 and 2020. It would seem like a stretch for Frelick to be used at third base with regularity in 2024, but the team's lack of established options at the position could work in his favor.

  • Brewers' Sal Frelick: Learning to play in infield

    Frelick has been learning to play at second and third base, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    With the impending arrival of Jackson Chourio, the Brewers' outfield unit has begun to look crowded, with Frelick, Garrett Mitchell, Christian Yelich and Joey Wiemer also vying for playing time. Frelick proved to be a great defender in center and right field last season, so the Brewers likely won't completely remove him from the outfield group, but further adding to Frelick's versatility could open up more opportunities for him to start while also allowing Milwaukee's other outfielders to play with more regularity.

  • Brewers' Sal Frelick: Covering center field in Game 1

    Frelick is playing center field and batting fifth Tuesday in Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series against the Diamondbacks.

    Tyrone Taylor will cover right field after Garrett Mitchell was left off the roster completely. Frelick got off to a roaring start when the Brewers initially called him up from Triple-A Nashville in late July, but he stumbled to a .238/.304/.293 slash line with zero home runs over his final 161 plate appearances of the regular season.

  • Brewers' Sal Frelick: Heads to bench Thursday

    Frelick is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Cardinals.

    Frelick is enjoying a productive rookie season overall, but his OPS has fallen from .769 to .702 since the beginning of September and he could get dinged on playing time as the Brewers work Garrett Mitchell (shoulder) back into the mix. Mitchell will start in center field Thursday with Mark Canha patrolling right field. Tyrone Taylor is also on the bench.

  • Brewers' Sal Frelick: Not starting Sunday

    Frelick is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Nationals.

    Frelick will often start against left-handed pitchers, but he'll sit Sunday with veteran Patrick Corbin on the mound for Washington. The rookie outfielder is in the midst of a six-game hit streak and has gone 9-for-25 with a double, a stolen base, two RBI and two runs in that stretch. Blake Perkins (oblique) will start in center field in his return from the injured list.
