PLAYER SPOT­LIGHT

USA TODAY Sports Weekly - - NL CENTRAL -

Corey Knebel, Brew­ers

The 25-year-old right-handed re­liever be­gan the sea­son as Mil­wau­kee’s pri­mary setup man. How­ever, when vet­eran Nef­tali Feliz was re­leased June 14, Knebel moved into the closer’s role and wound up be­ing the Brew­ers’ only se­lec­tion to the All-Star Game. He has kept them in the Na­tional League Cen­tral and wild-card races, con­vert­ing 29 of 34 save op­por­tu­ni­ties, and had a 1.31 ERA through 62 games.
