When the calender turns to September, rosters expand. Players are brought up to show their talents or help a team compete for a playoff spot. Here is a look at five players who could provide a boost the Milwaukee Brewers need during the stretch run.

As a five-year major league veteran, Eugenio Velez would provide experience to the Brewers' bench for the stretch drive. With 22 career pinch-hits he would be a reliable bat in late-game situations. Since coming to the organization last year he has flat-out hit. This season he has a .316 batting average with seven homers and 51 RBIs.

Last season, Donovan Hand did everything for the Brewers as he pitched as both a starter and a reliever. This season in Nashville, Hand has started, relieved and even has 17 saves. While his numbers are not great (5.20 ERA), he is an arm with experience the Brewers could add to give the bullpen some relief.

3. Matt Clark

After playing last season in Japan, Matt Clark has shined in the minor leagues this season. Since coming from the New York Mets to the Brewers this year he has excelled. Through 49 games he has a .309 average, 13 home runs and a .575 slugging percentage. The first baseman could be a power-hitting, left-handed bat that the club has not had all season.

2. Rob Wooten

When Wooten was up with the Brewers earlier this season he was not a favorite of some fans, but his overall numbers were not that bad. In 13 May outings, he allowed just one run. Take away a five run outing against the Cincinnati Reds and his 4.59 ERA would look much better.

Although he was a 32nd-round draft pick, Jason Rogers has been the Brewers' best minor league hitter over the past two seasons. This year playing in both Huntsville and Nashville, Rogers has a .290 batting average and 17 home runs. Besides just being a first baseman, he has gained experience at third base, too. He could be a player who not only gives Aramis Ramirez a breather in September but makes the roster in 2015.
