The Milwaukee Brewers Gray team roster, as in years' past, is compiled of players from all over California. The headline starting pitchers for the gray squad are hard throwing righty Dylan Covey from Maranatha (Pasadena, Calif.) followed by standout arms Cody Buckel, AJ Vanegas and Daniel Child.

Position players to watch are Alex Balog and dual threat James Roberts. Also, keep an eye on Eric Jaffe, Cory Hahn and Joc Pederson.

An under-the-radar player heading into the event is Isaiah Turner, a power hitting righty out of Stockdale (Bakersfield, Calif.).

The Brewers Gray will kick off their first game Aug. 6.
