What Does Kirk Nieuwenhuis Offer?

The Brewers have brought in so many new faces this offseason, it’s hard to keep track of them all. On one day in December alone, they claimed three players on waivers: outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis, ostensibly-a-catcher Josmil Pinto, and first baseman Andy Wilkins.

Kirk Nieuwenhuis and waiting for regression

You should never text and drive, you should never get involved in a land war in Asia and you should never make roster decisions based solely on Spring Training stats.
