Mail Call and on the 40

@Brewercom reported that there have been a few additions to the Milwaukee Brewers 40 man roster.

2B Eric Farris, LHP Dan Merklinger and RHP Wily Peralta added to the #Brewers 40-Man Roster.

Merklinger and Peralta were both Timber Rattlers in 2009.

Also, Adam McCalvy took a look at what was in his e-mail.  There are questions about trading Prince Fielder and Ryan Braun (BRAUN!?!?!?!!…oh, don’t worry.); Possibility of getting Cliff Lee or Jorge de la Rosa; New manager Ron Roenicke, and an interesting bit about Maryvale and what the future holds for a Spring Training site for the Brewers.

The excerpt from Adam’s column for this post deals with Brett Lawrie (’09):

Will we see Brett Lawrie in the bigs next year? Seems to be on the Braun/Rickie Weeks/Fielder track, but he’s blocked by Weeks at second base.
– Mark, Madison, Wis.

Lawrie is tough to figure out. He can hit, but word is that he still has some things to learn about professionalism and being a good teammate. In a perfect world, I think the Brewers would like him to play a full season at Triple-A before they consider him as a September callup. What happens with Weeks — who, like Fielder, has one arbitration season remaining before he hits free agency — will determine what happens with Lawrie.

Here’s another scenario we shouldn’t forget: If the Brewers are unhappy with their offers for Fielder, perhaps they would consider fielding interest in Lawrie. I could see him landing a pitching prospect in return.
