Brewers option Keston Hiura to open spot for Travis Shaw

This was a surprise.

Preserving depth on a major-league baseball team sometimes means having to make tough decisions, and the Milwaukee Brewers made one Monday afternoon.

Rather than lose a player they value, the Brewers optioned second baseman Keston Hiura to Class AAA San Antonio to open a roster spot for the return of third baseman Travis Shaw from minor-league rehabilitation assignment with that club.

In making that announcement, Brewers president of baseball operations David Stearns made it clear that it wasn’t anything Hiura failed to do in proving he can perform at the big-league level. Rather, it was a move made entirely because of roster considerations.

Brewers calling up top prospect Keston Hiura

Robert Murray of The Athletic reports that the Brewers are calling up top prospect Keston Hiura. He’s a second baseman.

Milwaukee started the season with Mike Moustakas playing second and Travis Shaw at third, but Shaw’s struggles — he’s hitting .163/.266/.281 (46 OPS+) and that just can’t happen to a team defending a division crown. With Hiura in Milwaukee, Moustakas should switch back to third more regularly while the kid gets a chance. Ken Rosenthal reports that Shaw will either go on the injured list or be sent down to Triple-A.

So, where does this rank in terms of great baseball names?
