When provisional rosters were announced for the international tournament this spring, the Brewers had 14 players from their organization listed.

In a perfect world, the Brewers would have preferred that Jean Segura get some rest this winter. After all, the 22-year-old shortstop saw plenty of action in 2012, beginning with 94 games with the Angels' Double-A Arkansas affiliate. Then came the Zack Greinke trade on July 27 that sent Segura and righthanders Johnny Hellweg and Ariel Pena to Milwaukee for the Brewers' ace.

The Brewers weren't sure what to expect from Wily Peralta when they summoned him from Triple-A Nashville in early September. The 23-year-old righthander began the year as the organization's top-rated prospect but struggled with his command, leading to an uneven season that had club officials worried. In 28 starts for Nashville, Peralta went 7-11, 4.66 with 143 strikeouts and 78 walks over 147 innings.

The Brewers knew they were asking a lot of Jean Segura when they promoted him from Double-A Huntsville in early August and made him their No. 1 shortstop. One of three prospects acquired on July 27 from the Angels in a trade for ace Zack Greinke, the 22-year-old Segura barely had gotten his feet on the ground in the organization when he was summoned to the big leagues. The Brewers wanted to see how Segura would fare, not knowing at the time that they'd make a late-season playoff push that would put even more pressure on him.
