Ryan Braun will start the year at AAA Nashville and if everything goes well, will be the Brewers 3B starting June 1st for good.
If Koskie isn't healthy, there is maybe a 10% chance that they'll start the year with Braun up in the bigs. Two reasons: #1 they can save a year on his arby clock if they wait to call him up until June 1st. #2 They want him to work on his defense at 3B.
In that case, Graffanino (R) and Counsell (L) would likely platoon at 3B until June 1st.
I'm not sure why there are questions about Braun handling 3B defensively. Wasn't he the starting SS for the Hurricanes?
Yes he was. He worked with Alex Rodriguez on his transition from short to third.
