Brewers' Adrian Houser: Role remains up in the air
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager David Stearns said he's unsure if Houser will be used as a starter or reliever moving forward, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Houser returned from Tommy John surgery in August and spent the remainder of the season with Low-A Wisconsin and the Brewers' rookie-level affiliate. While he primarily started, the right-hander didn't pitch more than three innings in any outing. Houser has experience pitching out of the bullpen, so it's possible he's shifted to a relief role in order to help preserve his arm. A decision on that likely won't be made until closer to spring.

Brewers' Taylor Williams: Role still uncertain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager David Stearns said the Brewers are still deciding whether Williams will be viewed as a starter or reliever moving forward, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Williams returned to action in 2017 after missing the previous two seasons due to an elbow issue that eventually required Tommy John surgery. While he's worked primarily as a starter throughout his career, the 26-year-old excelled as a reliever last season, posting a 2.08 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 16 strikeouts in 13 innings of relief with Double-A Biloxi and a 1.93 ERA and four strikeouts in 4.2 innings out of the Brewers' bullpen. His role for 2018 should start to come into focus closer to spring training.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: In mix for 2018 rotation spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

While meeting with reporters at the Winter Meetings on Monday, Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Woodruff is expected to be in the picture for a rotation spot when spring training begins in February.

There are at least two moving parts that could significantly alter Woodruff's path to an Opening Day spot in the rotation. First, the Brewers could add pitching help via trade or free agency this winter. Second, Josh Hader's role is yet to be determined. Even if Hader is stretched out as a starter and the Brewers add another arm (or two) during the winter, Woodruff will almost certainly remain stretched out to compete for one of the final spots in the rotation with the likes of Brent Suter and Junior Guerra.

Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Too early to determine timetable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

During his session with assembled media at the Winter Meetings on Monday morning, Brewers manager Craig Counsell said it's too early to project a return date for Nelson (shoulder) as he's approximately 10 weeks removed from surgery.

Counsell suggested spring training as a more realistic point for the Brewers to have a timetable for Nelson's expected return date, though he told reporters that he spoke to Nelson last week, and that the right-hander is encouraged by his recovery to this point. Even with the progress Nelson has made to this point, the Brewers are expected to bolster their rotation over the course of the offseason, as Nelson will miss a "meaningful" portion of the 2018 season.

Brewers' Josh Hader: Role remains uncertain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

GM David Stearns said Friday that the Brewers are still evaluating whether to use Hader as a starter or reliever in 2018, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

One thing Stearns is confident about is that Hader "is going to be put in a position to accumulate innings," whether that be as a starter or a multi-inning reliever, which is no surprise given Hader's talent. While the Brewers will be looking to maximize his innings, and he was a highly-regarded starting pitcher prospect just one offseason ago, he did throw only 99.2 total innings in 2017 across all levels, so he'd probably have a cap on his workload even if he heads into the season as a starter. With that in mind, the Brewers must weigh if it's worth even trying Hader in the rotation, especially when considering just how dominant (12.84 K/9, .156 BAA) he was working in relief last year. With Hader facing a theoretical innings limit as a starter and not in the mix for saves as a reliever, he will likely be only a fringe option in standard league formats. However, even as a full-time reliever he would stand a good chance to hit 100 strikeouts while providing quality ratios, so he can still provide some sort of value in any role for fantasy owners and the Brewers alike.
