Projected Brewers Starting Lineup Following Jackson Chourio's Contract Extension

+

The Milwaukee Brewers just made history, signing top prospect Jackson Chourio to a record-breaking eight year contract before he made his MLB debut. Now that he's signed long-term, it's highly likely that he makes the Opening Day roster and will be in the starting lineup. While there's still a chance the Brewers could opt to keep Chourio in Triple-A to begin the year, we can fairly assume that he's going to in the big leagues, which changes the lineup configuration. The Brewers have a glut of outfielders that will have to figure out playing time, which was a problem, albeit a good problem, even before Chourio's arrival.
