Player Outlook
A 2021 first-round pick, Sal Frelick made his MLB debut in late July and had three homers and an .870 OPS in his first 21 big-league games, but he struggled the rest of the way and finished with a .246/.341/.351 slash line in 223 plate appearances. The underwhelming finish aside, there was plenty to like about the young outfielder's first taste of the big leagues, with a 12.6 percent walk rate and 16.6 percent strikeout rate standing out. He also played well defensively with plus-six DRS while splitting his time between center and right field. Frelick still has the upside of a potential high-average leadoff man and should have the leg up on a starting job entering spring training, especially with his prospect pedigree. However, there's hardly any guarantees for his role in 2024 given Milwaukee's plethora of young outfield talent.

  • Brewers' Sal Frelick: Stacking up hits

    Frelic went 3-for-4 with an RBI, two runs and a walk in Tuesday's victory over the Reds. Frelick dropped out of the leadoff spot after getting off to a slow start, but the move appears to have worked, as he recorded multiple hits in each of his last three games and reached based a total of 10 times over that span. Frelick has just one extra-base hit thus far, but after nine games his .324 batting average and .410 OBP over 39 PA are more than sufficient.

  • Brewers' Sal Frelick: Drops in batting order

    Frelick will bat sixth and start in center field Wednesday against the Twins. Frelick had hit leadoff in each of the Brewers' last three games -- all against right-handed pitching -- but he went 1-for-13 with four strikeouts over that stretch and may have at least temporarily lost hold of the table-setting role. The Brewers will turn over the leadoff spot to hot-hitting rookie Jackson Chourio, who is slashing .375/.412/.438 in 17 plate appearances to begin his big-league career.

  • Brewers' Sal Frelick: On bench vs. lefty in opener

    Frelick is out of the lineup for Friday's season opener against the Mets. The 23-year-old will begin the season as Milwaukee's primary center fielder against right-handed pitching, but he's on the bench for Opening Day with southpaw Jose Quintana on the mound for New York. Blake Perkins is starting in center field and batting sixth in Frelick's place.

  • Brewers' Sal Frelick: Could move back to outfield

    Brewers manager Pat Murphy said Monday that Frelick could move back to the outfield on a full-time basis following the injury to Garrett Mitchell (hand), Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Mitchell has been diagnosed with a fractured left hand and is likely to be sidelined for several weeks. The plan has been for Frelick to be used often at third base, but he could now return to his more familiar right field spot while Joey Ortiz and Andruw Monasterio get reps at the hot corner. Worth noting is Murphy intimated that this is just one of the options he's considering. Milwaukee could also give Blake Perkins more playing time in the outfield, and Joey Wiemer is a candidate to be recalled.

  • Brewers' Sal Frelick: In line to start at third base?

    The Brewers appear "intent" on Frelick opening the season as the primary third baseman against right-handed pitching, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. What began this spring as something of an experiment has evidently evolved into a full-blown plan of installing Frelick as the regular at the hot corner. Frelick hadn't played an inning in the infield in pro ball or college but has proven to be a quick study at third base. He still figures to be used in the outfield a good amount, but sticking Frelick at third against righties thins out the team's crowded outfield situation.

  • Brewers' Sal Frelick: Covering center field in Game 1

    Frelick is playing center field and batting fifth Tuesday in Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series against the Diamondbacks. Tyrone Taylor will cover right field after Garrett Mitchell was left off the roster completely. Frelick got off to a roaring start when the Brewers initially called him up from Triple-A Nashville in late July, but he stumbled to a .238/.304/.293 slash line with zero home runs over his final 161 plate appearances of the regular season.

  • Brewers' Sal Frelick: Hits bench versus lefty

    Frelick isn't starting Saturday against the Cubs. With left-hander Jordan Wicks set to start on the mound for Chicago, the lefty-hitting Frelick will retreat to the dugout. Tyrone Taylor will get the nod in right field and bat sixth.

  • Brewers' Sal Frelick: Not starting Sunday

    Frelick is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Nationals. Frelick will often start against left-handed pitchers, but he'll sit Sunday with veteran Patrick Corbin on the mound for Washington. The rookie outfielder is in the midst of a six-game hit streak and has gone 9-for-25 with a double, a stolen base, two RBI and two runs in that stretch. Blake Perkins (oblique) will start in center field in his return from the injured list.

  • Brewers' Sal Frelick: Sitting versus lefty

    Frelick is out of the lineup Sunday against the Phillies. Left-hander Ranger Suarez will start on the bump for Philadelphia, meaning the lefty-hitting Frelick will stay put in the Brewers' dugout. Joey Wiemer will start in center field and bat sixth while Frelick sits.

  • Brewers' Sal Frelick: Returns to lineup

    Frelick (hamstring) will start in center field and bat cleanup Saturday against the Padres. After missing four games as a result of a sore right hamstring, Frelick will return as Milwaukee's starting center fielder Saturday. The 23-year-old rookie has enjoyed playing in front of his home crowd since debuting in July, posting a 1.208 OPS across 45 plate appearances at American Family Field.

  • Brewers' Sal Frelick: Held out again Wednesday

    Frelick (hamstring) remains out of the lineup for Wednesday's game versus the Twins, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Frelick still hasn't played since Saturday due to a right hamstring injury. The Brewers have an off day Thursday, so perhaps they're hoping the rookie outfielder will be ready to go for their weekend series against the Padres. Tyrone Taylor is in center field and Mark Canha is in right field for the Brew Crew on Wednesday.

  • Brewers' Sal Frelick: Scratched with sore hamstring

    Frelick was scratched from the lineup Tuesday versus the Twins due to lingering right hamstring soreness, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Frelick sat out of Sunday's series finale against the Rangers after tweaking his right hamstring Saturday, and it's still an issue even after Monday's scheduled team off day. Joey Wiemer will now start in center field and bat ninth for the Brewers in Tuesday's series opener against Minnesota.

  • Brewers' Sal Frelick: Managing hamstring issue

    Frelick is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rangers due to a right hamstring injury, Sophia Minnaert of Bally Sports Wisconsin reports. Frelick apparently tweaked something during Saturday's contest and was replaced by a pinch hitter during the sixth inning after going 2-for-3. The Brewers have a team day off Monday, so the 23-year-old will have two full days to rest up ahead of Tuesday's series opener versus the Twins. Christian Yelich, Tyrone Taylor and Mark Canha are starting from left to right in the outfield Sunday for Milwaukee.

  • Brewers' Sal Frelick: Swipes three bags in loss

    Frelick went 1-for-2 with two walks and three stolen bases in a 1-0 loss to the Dodgers on Thursday. Milwaukee struggled to generate offense against Lance Lynn and a pair of Los Angeles relievers, notching just five hits, all of which were singles. Frelick did his best to help get a run across the plate, reaching in three of his four plate appearances and swiping three bags after coming into the contest with just two steals over 23 games. The rookie got into scoring position three times, but he was stranded in each instance, including in the ninth inning when he walked and stole second with two outs as the potential tying run.

  • Brewers' Sal Frelick: Sitting versus lefty

    Frelick isn't in the Brewers' lineup Tuesday against the Rockies. Although Frelick bashed a three-run homer in his only career plate appearance against a lefty, he will take a seat against Kyle Freeland and the Rockies on Tuesday. Tyrone Taylor will start in right field and bat fourth in Frelick's place.

  • Brewers' Sal Frelick: Productive in blowout win

    Frelick went 2-for-3 with a home run, a double, a walk, four RBI and three runs scored in Monday's 12-1 win over the Rockies. Frelick has gone a solid 5-for-14 (.357) with two homers, 11 RBI and five walks over his last five games. Six of his 12 hits at the major-league level have gone for extra bases, and he also sports a 14:11 BB:K, continuing his trend of solid plate discipline from the minors. The rookie outfielder is slashing .273/.435/.545 with three homers, 15 RBI, a stolen base and 14 runs scored through 16 contests.

  • Brewers' Sal Frelick: Homers, drives in five

    Frelick went 2-for-3 with a double, a home run, five RBI and an additional run scored in Thursday's 14-1 win over the Pirates. Frelick got the Brewers on the board in the first inning with a two-run double before blasting a three-run homer off Jose Hernandez in the sixth, extending the lead to 11-1. Frelick had cooled off after a fast start to his MLB career, going 0-for-14 in his previous five games. Overall, the rookie outfielder is 9-for-33 (.273) with a pair of homers, 11 runs scored and nine RBI across his first 46 plate appearances while drawing nearly twice as many walks (11) as strikeouts (6).

  • Brewers' Sal Frelick: Returns to lineup Thursday

    Frelick (leg) is back in the lineup Thursday versus the Pirates. Frelick collided with the outfield wall Tuesday in Washington and was on the bench for Wednesday's series finale, but he suffered only a minor leg bruise and is good to go heading into the Brewers' four-game set against Pittsburgh. The 23-year-old will start in right field and bat fifth Thursday at American Family Field.

  • Brewers' Sal Frelick: Sits against lefty

    Frelick is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nationals. With lefty MacKenzie Gore on the hill for Washington, the lefty-hitting Frelick will head to the bench after starting in each of the Brewers' last six games. He went hitless in the last four of those contests, bringing his batting average down to .241 through his first 10 games with Milwaukee. Tyrone Taylor will check in for Frelick in right field.

  • Brewers' Sal Frelick: Belts first big-league long ball

    Frelick went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Monday's 3-2 win against the Reds. After collecting four singles in six at-bats in his first two games in the majors, Frelick slugged a solo shot to right field in the sixth inning Monday for his first homer (and first extra-base hit). The 23-year-old also drew a walk in the contest, so he's reached base seven times in 12 plate appearances thus far. That pace is unsustainable, but Frelick is proving to be a dynamic addition to the Brewers' lineup and to fantasy squads that roster him.
