The Brewers 2013 season has been a lost cause for awhile now, but there have been plenty of bright spots among individual players this season. Carlos Gomez has sparkled in the outfield for the entire season, and Logan Schafer has been impressive in the outfield while filling in for Braun. Segura, while he has made plenty of mistakes, has made some amazing plays himself. At one point or another, almost every player on the roster has made an impressive play on defense. Here are my top 16 plays from the season. All videos are on MLB.com.

 

16. Gomez takes a hit away from Bryce Harper.

1. Gomez makes an amazing catch while running up that stupid hill in Houston. This is easily one of the best defensive plays I’ve ever seen from a Brewers player.

    Gomez has been a bright spot, and one of the only reasons I check the box score and look for highlights each day.
