The Milwaukee Brewers rode an intimidating pitching staff behind NL Cy Young winner Corbin Burnes to a fourth straight postseason appearance last year. The offseason has seen changes between the departures of Eduardo Escobar and some recent additions in the outfield.

Milwaukee has an elite pitching staff to compete and a superstar in Christian Yelich, but that shouldn't stop the front office from tinkering. Here are three moves the Brewers must make before the start of the 2022 campaign.

Brewers Offseason Moves

1. Give Luis Urias a Good Look on 3B

After coming over via trade in 2019, Luis Urias battled for the starting shortstop role. Willy Adames eventually may have won that job but it opened up an opportunity for Urias to play third. The 24-year-old some of his best performances at the plate in the latter half of the year while splitting time on the hot corner. He ended up with a .249/.345/.445 slash line and 75 RBIs in 150 games all over the infield. This season will be a great opportunity for Urias to worry less about defense in a secure role and continue to blossom as a hitter.

2. Add to Pitching Depth

It wouldn't hurt for the Brewers to add even more depth to the strongest portion of their roster. Depth is key in today's MLB and there's enough reliable options the Brewers could explore. These wouldn't be additions to steal away from of the current bullpen rotations, but ensuring a spot starter or in case of injuries to the pen. Danny Duffy and Mychal Givens are available options for cheap that work in this spot.

3. Give Mario Feliciano a Chance Behind the Dish

Omar Narvaez returns as Milwaukee's starter behind the plate, but there's a young catcher waiting for his shot. Mario Feliciano isn't the flashiest prospect but he's worth a look. The young catcher rallied up to Triple-A last year and checks in at No. 13 on Milwaukee's list of prospect rankings. Known for his bat, Felciano deserves a chance at earning time in the big leagues this summer. Considering DH is still a question mark, it makes sense for Milwaukee to add any sort of offense available to the lineup.
