Milwaukee Brewers - Coming off Very Proactive Performances in the Last Few Season
The Brewers are still in the middle of their most successful streak ever as a team. Until 2018, they had only made four postseason appearances; since then, they have done so four times. In each of the last five complete seasons, they have won at least 86 games. Nonetheless, there is still plenty for them to do, given they missed the playoffs last year and haven't gone to the World Series since 1982. In the match against Cubs, William Contreras is likely to perform most of the catching duties alongside Victor Caratini. Jesse Winker is likely to start as the Designated Hitter (DH) for his side this season.
