w fewer than three weeks away http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey , and today the Milwaukee Brewers announced their first round of roster cuts to start whittling down from 57 players at the start of camp to the final 25 men who will comprise the Opening Day roster. Today’s cuts include eight players, seven of whom are pitchers:Three players who were sent out are on the 40 man roster and thus required option years to be expended. This is Trey Supak’s first option year after his contract was selected during the most recent offseason. Milwaukee’s #11 prospect (per MLB Pipeline) pitched in only one game this spring, allowing three runs on two homers with a pair of strikeouts in 1.0 inning of work. Diplan, the org’s #17 prospect, is now on his second option year. He logged 2.1 innings in three appearances this spring, allowing four runs and five walks. Maybe this is the year he gets converted to a full-time reliever. This will also be Aaron Wilkerson’s second option season. He was added to the 40 man roster as a September call-up in 2017 then served as shuttle depth last season. In 5.1 innings this spring he punched out 10 batters, but also allowed five runs. He figures to get stretched out and begin the season in the rotation for Triple-A San Antonio.The other five players were in camp as non-roster invitees and were reassigned to minor league camp. That includes two more ranked prospects: #6 Zack Brown, last year’s org Minor League Pitcher of the Year, and #10 Payton Henry. Brown impressed while allowing only one earned run across 6.0 innings this spring and should be on his way to joining the rotation in San Antonio. Henry, a 21 year old catcher, had one hit - a double - and an RBI in 12 at-bats across nine games. Bowdien Derby allowed five runs in 3.2 spring innings Kenny Lofton Jersey , while Jon Olczak allowed four runs in 3.0 innings but did strike out six. Both hurlers figure to work out of the bullpen in San Antonio. Finally, Angel Perdomo allowed two runs in 4.0 spring innings, but also punched out eight. He drew praise from manager Craig Counsell for his stuff on the mound and could head to Double-A Biloxi to begin the season. His arrival to the majors could be hastened by a full-time move to the bullpen.After today’s cuts, Milwaukee’s spring roster is down to 49 players.Statistics courtesy of MLB.com CLEVELAND (AP) — The Houston Astros may be defending more than their World Series title.The champions are under scrutiny after Cleveland filed a complaint to Major League Baseball about a man associated with Houston attempting to film in the Indians’ dugout during Game 3 of the AL Division Series last week.During the Astros’ series-clinching win on Oct. 8 at Progressive Field in Cleveland, a man with a cellphone standing by the photographer’s pit was removed “several times” by security personnel, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Tuesday night. The man’s credential was requested by Houston, according to the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.MLB also says it is aware of a report by Metro Boston that a man claiming to be an Astros employee was removed from a credentialed area near the Boston Red Sox dugout during the AL Championship Series opener at Fenway Park. The Red Sox dropped the series opener but have won the past two to take a 2-1 lead.In a statement, MLB said the matter “will be handled internally” and offered no other details.While it’s yet to be proven if the Astros were doing anything illegal, the two incidents have raised further questions about the use of electronic equipment during games and whether Houston has been cheating.According to the Metro report, which cited multiple security sources who were on the scene http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey , a man was removed during the third inning of Game 1 on Saturday night at Fenway Park but allowed to stay in the ballpark after another Astros staffer intervened. The report said the man had a small camera and was texting frequently, but did not have a media credential.Houston manager AJ Hinch and Red Sox manager Alex Cora both said after Boston’s 8-2 win Tuesday night in Houston they had heard about the alleged incident.“I’m aware of something going on, but I haven’t been briefed,” Hinch said. “I’m worried about the game.”Cora said he has been concerned throughout the season about Red Sox signs being stolen.“So I mean we do a good job changing sequences and paying attention to details. And we don’t get caught up on the whole paranoia thing of the signs,” he said. “We try to slow it down. If we feel there’s something going on we switch the signs.”When asked if he felt like anything was going on the first two ALCS games at Fenway Park, Cora responded, “No, I don’t.”This isn’t the first time the Astros have been suspected of cheating.Earlier this season, Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer intimated on Twitter that Houston’s pitchers may have been using banned substances to improve the spin on their pitches. Bauer didn’t provide any specifics but his insinuations triggered a social-media storm, which included responses from several Astros players, including pitchers Lance McCullers Jr. and Collin McHugh.The Indians were swept by the Astros http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey , who after winning twice at home, rolled to an 11-3 win in Game 3. Cleveland was eliminated in the first round for the second year in a row as the AL Central champions batted just .144 as a team and some of the club’s top hitters, including All-Star second baseman Jose Ramirez, had brutal series. Ramirez went hitless in 11 at-bats.Following the game, center fielder Jason Kipnis was critical of his team’s performance and said he felt the Indians were overmatched.“We were just outplayed,” Kipnis said. “I wish it weren’t that simple. It just seems from top to bottom we were out-scouted, out-pitched, out-coached a little bit. They really did just a fantastic job over there of being ready and prepared before the series. I don’t think we were underprepared, they just went out and executed and played the way you need to play to win.”
