    Padres 2b, they went after him in 2019, makes sense. That fees up Urias to go somewhere else in a package.

    New Brewers SS Luis Urias underwent surgery on Tuesday to repair a fractured left hamate bone and is expected to be sidelined for the next 6-8 weeks. He suffered the injury while playing winter ball. I wouldn't expect much power from him this season. Hamate surgery for power hitters seems to have an extended recovery time that often goes far beyond the actual return.

    The 3rd time was the charm for Moose, who ended up getting 4 years/$64 million from the Reds which includes $12 million for 2020.

    I know that he's not a typical example, but Matt Olson begs to differ ...

    Agree, I was out on Olson last year due to that news. But his power did not suffer at all. I wonder why? Anything we can learn from it?

    Not much, IMO. Certainly, rehab for that injury has changed, presumably improving recovery time. But I'd still consider Olson the exception rather than the rule.

    Quick note on Urias - he'll play SS for the Brewers if healthy. Otherwise, it'll be Arcia at SS and Hiura at 2B.

    In other Brewer news, looks like the Brewers have informed Braun that they will refuse the option for him in 2021, so it's likely this is his last year in Milwaukee.
    I'm just here for the baseball.

    He bats lefty and he broke his hamate in his right hand.

    Geez, why didn't anyone mention this last year? I was out on him, too.

    I cannot remember where, but I read an well-researched article that provided strong evidence that this perception does not match actual performance. My simple take away was not to be afraid of hamate injuries.
