The Milwaukee Brewers haven't had to make many moves in the first half, as they have had no major injury issues to contend with. The team did, though, remove Marcos Estrada from the rotation in favor of rookie right-hander Jimmy Nelson, one of the team's top prospects.

All-Stars Carlos Gomez and Jonathan Lucroy have paced the offense so far, with each putting forth career years to this point in the season.
