Daniel Vogelbach’s Grit For Scoring Despite a Serious Injury is Special
Milwaukee Brewers started to see some real production out of their first base position from Daniel Vogelbach. In the last few weeks, Vogelbach started to find his stroke at the plate. He had a few home runs, got on-base and did all the things you would want him to do. Even though Christian Yelich is not as hot as he was in 2018 or 2019, Vogelbach still got more pitches due to hitting ahead of Yelich. Well, it looks like he will not be on the roster for the foreseeable future. As he rounded third base, Vogelbach came up limp with his hamstring and pulled up extermely gimpy. Regardless, it was impressive to see Vogelbach score that run.

Originally, Vogelbach was supposed to be a platoon with Keston Hiura. That was the plan all along. Hiura is down in the minor leagues, but you would assume that he comes up today. That has to be the move, right? Hiura is hitting well again in Triple A, so, the thought would be that maybe this time it would be different than the last time the Brewers brought Hiura back into the mix. They could call up Zach Green, who has shown some power in Nashville, but Green’s average is pretty mediocre. Interesting to see what Counsell does today.
