06.17.2019: The struggles of Lorenzo Cain, Freddy Peralta, Jimmy Nelson and Travis Shaw; plus, a chat with Matt Albers

Jun 17, 10:00 AM

Brewers beat reporter Tom Haudricourt discusses the struggles of Lorenzo Cain, Jimmy Nelson and Travis Shaw, plus a chat with Matt Albers.

 The Brewers salvaged the Giants series and emerged from the weekend still in first place, but it was an up-and-down week. Brewers beat reporter Tom Haudricourt joins host JR Radcliffe to discuss what the Brewers might have planned next for Freddy Peralta and Jimmy Nelson, particularly with Jhoulys Chacin set to return from the injured list. With Keston Hiura knocking on the door in the minors, has anything changed with Travis Shaw? Would the team consider moving an ailing Lorenzo Cain out of the leadoff spot? On the flip side, Christian Yelich has put Prince Fielder's club record of 50 home runs in a season at risk. Reliever Adrian Houser has been a revelation, and the Brewers appear headed toward four all-stars ... or more? 

Then, JR chats with relief pitcher Matt Albers about his memorable 2016 at-bat with the Chicago White Sox, his ups and downs with the Brewers, the impact Hurricane Harvey had on his family in Houston and the expression "big ole bucket of sassy."
