Yelich, Brewers optimistic after spring bounce backs | Sports | #sports | #elderly | #seniors
“I think he’s as enthused about starting a season as probably any player I’ve been around,” president of baseball operations David Stearns said.
Plenty of other Brewers who slumped last year performed well this spring.
Hiura hit .283 with a .935 OPS. Narváez hit .273 with a .415 on-base percentage and 1.051 OPS. García batted .313 with a .930 OPS.
“Spring training is very different than the regular season,” Stearns said. “But, given some of the performances we had last year, having guys going into the regular season with a really good frame of mind, with confidence, with belief in themselves and each other, I think there’s a degree of importance to it. I know as well as anyone that this can all change in one direction or another after a week.”
