Sogard agreed to a one year contract with the Brewers on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Sogard will be back with the Brewers for another season after his bounce-back 2017 campaign. After missing all of 2016 with a knee injury, the utility infielder compiled a respectable .273/.393/.378 line in 94 games while helping Milwaukee push for a playoff spot. He could fight for a spot in the starting nine, though ideally he'll reprise his role as a utility man for the Brewers.

Sogard will play shortstop and hit leadoff in Monday's game against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Sogard and Hernan Perez have shared the leadoff duties of late depending on the hand the opposing starter throws with, so it will be Sogard getting the nod Monday against Pittsburgh starter Jameson Taillon. Sogard reached base nine times over the last four games he appeared in to raise his OBP to an impressive .391.

Sogard will bat leadoff and play second base Sunday against the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Though Sogard is occupying a prime spot in the lineup, his struggles in the second half (.173 average over 52 at-bats) coupled with the difficult matchup against former All-Star Yu Darvish could render him an unattractive option in daily contests. Expect Sogard to settle back into a bench role when the Brewers return home to kick off a two-game set Tuesday against the Cardinals, with Neil Walker likely to move back over to the keystone.

Sogard will draw the start at shortstop and lead off Wednesday against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Orlando Arcia's back injury will open up a third consecutive start for Sogard, but he should be set to return to the bench before long with the Brewers not anticipating at this time that Arcia will require a trip to the disabled list. The Brewers' recent acquisition of Neil Walker closes the door on regular at-bats at second base for Sogard, which will relegate the 31-year-old to utility duties when the team is at full strength in the middle infield.

Sogard is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Sogard has struggled mightily since returning from the disabled list (.061/.139/.061 slash line in 33 at-bats), so he'll head to the bench to clear his head as Hernan Perez draws a start at the keystone.

Sogard is not in Friday's lineup against the Rays, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sogard will take a seat for the second straight day while mired in a bit of a slump, hitting just .074/.138/.074 since the All-Star break. Hernan Perez makes another start at second base in his place for the series opener.

Sogard is out of the lineup Thursday against St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

Sogard will retreat to the bench for the series finale after starting the past two games, going 0-for-5 during those contests. In his place, Hernan Perez earns the start at the keystone, batting fifth.

Sogard is not in the lineup Friday against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

The Brewers seem content keeping Sogard in a platoon at second base, so he'll hit the bench for a night off with lefty Jose Quintana throwing for Chicago in the series opener Friday. Hernan Perez will man the keystone in his place.

Sogard is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Sogard seems to be back atop the pecking order at second base in Milwaukee, although he'll get a night off with southpaw Gio Gonzalez toeing the rubber for Washington. Jonathan Villar will log a start at the keystone in his stead.

Sogard is starting at second base and leading off Tuesday against the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Since coming off the DL, Sogard has started at second base and led off in two of three games, as it appears he may have a slight leg up on Jonathan Villar for playing time at the keystone, at least until Villar's bat heats up. Sogard is hitting .319/.406/.431 with one home run and 18 runs in 29 games as the leadoff hitter this year.
