The debut of the 2014 MLB regular season will bring plenty of excitement to baseball fans all around the world. It also will feed the hungry mouths of fantasy baseball owners. In focusing just on the Milwaukee Brewers, who are five players fantasy owners won’t regret drafting?

Ace Yovani Gallardo is in a contract year, which typically means an outstanding performance during the season. The only way the Brewers reach the playoffs is if the right-hander finds his form and excels on the mound. The good news for fantasy owners is that he should do that, especially with starters Kyle Lohse and Matt Garza taking some of the pressure of him in 2014. Expect 15 wins and more than 200 strikeouts.

4. Jean Segura

Jean Segura dominated in his first full year in the big leagues in 2013. In fact, the Brewers aren’t shy about suggesting he could be the face of the franchise in the not so distant future. Segura flashes power but his big attribute on offense is his batting average and speed on the bases. As far as shortstops go, Segura is definitely someone owners should want on their roster.

3. Carlos Gomez

Carlos Gomez put forth a career effort on all fronts last season. The good news for the Brewers and fantasy owners is that he’s just entering his prime now, which means there’s more solid production expected to be had. Gomez can hit for power, average and is one of the fastest players in baseball. He’s also a dominant center fielder who consistently makes jaw-dropping plays.

2. Kyle Lohse

Starter Kyle Lohse made Milwaukee look smart when they inked him to a three-year deal last offseason. It might sound like a lot to expect the right-hander to be just as good this season as he was last year. However, owners should believe in him for the same reason they believe in Gallardo. Lohse is a stellar pitcher who will excel because he knows it’s not all up to him to carry the team.

Ryan Braun has been the star for the Brewers and that won’t change going forward. He has consistently put up astonishing numbers, which has delighted fantasy owners for years. The fact that Braun was suspended and shamed last year means he’s out to prove he’s one of the top run producers in the league despite what people may think. Passing on Braun in the first round would be a massive mistake.
