Brewers' Ryan Braun: First base role diminishes
Braun worked in spring training at first base last year to help the Brewers fully utilize their outfield depth, but the emergence of Jesus Aguilar ended up limiting Braun's exposure at the position in 2018, so this comes as no surprise. The offseason trades of Domingo Santana and Keon Broxton only further entrenched Braun, Lorenzo Cain and Christian Yelich as Milwaukee's outfield starters for 2019, with Ben Gamel -- acquired in the Santana trade -- set to serve as the fourth outfielder. The 35-year-old Braun is coming off a 125-game campaign in which he slashed .254/.313/.469 with 20 home runs, and he's looking to re-tap into his power by working to raise his launch angle this offseason.
