Be interesting to see who is removed from the 25 man...could be McGehee going to the DL, could be Gamel going down to play everyday in Nashville, could be Hall being DFA'd, I suppose, though I assume we would have heard some whispers about that by now.
Gillespie doesn't have much ceiling, as he's been old for his level. He was a high pick and a decent athlete, but supposedly can't throw at all, a result of arm surgery. He might get a few seasons in the bigs as a reserve OF, especially if he learns to play 1B. He does have a nice eye at the plate, so he may be a nice platoon partner for someone.
I'd say this tells us Doug is still doing anything he can to improve the team, even though I'd say the team does not look like a 90 win group right now. Not a whole lot lost, of course, so I suppose the low risk makes this worthwhile.
Also, where will Lopez play? Doug talks about his versatility, so I would guess he'll bounce between all 3 infield spots, as well as maybe give Ryan a day or two off in LF, especially if he is banged up. Part of where he plays will depend on who he replaces, of course.

Whatever strikes me as
interesting, and serious Milwaukee Brewers thoughts. If you are a believer
in respecting OBP, throwing strikes, and keeping the ball in the park,
you may have found the place you've been searching for. I believe in low taxes, small government, and am not afraid to be labeled patriotic.
