The Milwaukee Brewers invited six of their non-roster minor-league players to their spring camp Friday, including second baseman Keston Hiura, their 2017 first-round draft pick. Others invited were infielder Nate Orf and outfielder Kyle Wren, a pair of veteran minor-leaguers who have performed well at the Class AAA level, pitching prospects Corbin Burnes and Luis Ortiz, and right-hander Jon Perrin, a control pitcher who has consistently performed well in the system.
Veteran right-hander Ernesto Frieri, once a dominant reliever in the majors who fell on hard times in recent years, has signed a minor-league deal with the Brewers with an invitation to spring training, according to Mark Feinsand of mlb.com. Frieri, 32, had some big years with San Diego from 2010-'12 (2.33 ERA in 105 games) and saved 37 games for the Los Angeles Angels in 2013.
Ji-Man Choi, the slugging first baseman from South Korea who signed a minor-league deal Monday with the Brewers, probably won't establish a residence at the Pfister Hotel if he makes Milwaukee's roster in spring training. Choi, 26, is among a long list of baseball players who believe that the historic downtown hotel is haunted. While playing for the Los Angeles Angels in 20916, Choi insisted he was visited by a ghost when the team stayed at that hotel.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
