DateQuestionAnswer
2016-04-14 20:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see any of the young Brewers waiting for their opportunity in AAA like Michael Reed, Orlando Arcia and Zach Davies making an impact soon?
(Scott from LA)
Reed and Davies might get their shots before Arcia, but Arcia is a much better bet to stick. Reed might get a shot before Brett Phillips, but he's unlikely to perform well enough to prevent Phillips from supplanting him. Nobody in the Brewers' rotation is going to block Davies if he performs well, but he's unlikely to have sustained success in MLB with his stuff. Arcia is coming up at some point this summer, and when he does, he's probably there for good. Even if Villar plays like an All Star, which would be an upset, the Brewers will promote a meeting-expectations Arcia and play him at SS, moving Villar to 2B or 3B and shunting Scooter Gennett or Aaron Hill to the bench or the waiver wire. There's no denying Arcia, barring injury. (Scooter Hotz)
2016-03-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Michael Reed had an intriguing 2015 season. Showed a great approach, along with plus speed and arm. What are your thoughts on him? Can he be a starting MLB outfielder? Or he is just a solid 4th outfielder?
(Nolan from Racine, WI)
I get closer to a 'second division starter' or 4th OF/platoon type OF from him. I'll admit I don't have the best in-person feel, though. He's super physical and he's proven there's a chance average hit tool and some speed. I like the way he draws walks, though there just isn't a ton of power here.

It will be interesting to see how he comes into the fold during a rebuilding year, and with Liriano now out of the mix... (Adam McInturff)
2016-01-21 19:00:00 (link to chat)Man, one of your readers is a slimy, double-crossing, no good swindler, who's got a lot of guts stealing Jabari Blash off waivers while I was refreshing questions. So I guess it's Yorman Rodriguez or...Mark Canha? Ravel Rangelo? Michael Reed!?!
(RotoLando from Cloud City)
Oh man...Canha...I drafted him along with a buddy in a scoresheet league with 80-man rosters last year...He's ok in a deeper league like I'm guessing this is. (George Bissell)
2016-01-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)I feel like Domingo Santana and Michael Reed are more or less a wash defensively in right field. Santana has more power than Reed. But Reed doesn't strike out near as much, walks a lot, and has better speed on the bases. Am I crazy for thinking he could be the better MLB corner OF, in the mold of Nori Aoki?
(Mokajige from Sheboygan, WI)
Crazy? Nah. I don't agree, however. I think Reed profiles much better as a fourth outfielder, and Santana I still think has a chance to be a very good starter in right field, maybe even a middle of the order hitter someday even with the strikeouts. I've been a fan for a long time. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-07-23 17:00:00 (link to chat)looking into your crystal ball, could you rank the following outfielders for me. Braxton Davidson, Derek Fisher, Harold Ramirez, Alex Verdugo and Michael Reed (though he's fallen off quite a bit recently).
(fred from C-Falls)
Fisher, Verdugo, Ramirez, Davidson, and Reed. (Mike Gianella)
2015-07-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm hoping to get your opinion of the Brewers' Michael Reed. Do you think he could factor into the back end of a Top 101?
(Mokajige from Sheboygan)
Not a top 101 guy to me, but that doesn't mean I'm not a fan. The approach is impressive, and he's a guy who's going to steal 25 to 30 bases if he gets on base enough, and he should. Add in his quality defense and arm, and you have a guy who could hit near the top of a lineup. I just would like to see more power/a little more consistency with the swing. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-03-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)Any Brewers sleeper prospect you like?
(Joe from Milwaukee)
The Brewers have other prospects?

That's a really bad system, but Michael Reed is sort of interesting. Plus speed and very good approach at the plate. Could be a nice fourth outfielder. (Christopher Crawford)
