Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Jhoulys Chacin gave up five runs on seven hits and a walk through 4 2/3 innings on Wednesday against the Cubs. Chacin did strike out five batters and only three of the runs were earned, but it's a disappointing start for him as he had been on a roll recently and... Read More

Milwaukee Brewers reliever Josh Hader gave up a two-run homer to Anthony Rizzo to lose the lead in the eighth inning on Monday against the Cubs. Hader is known for pitching one to two innings at a time, but this time the Brewers tried to get three out of him and it backfired. Hader's ERA... Read More

Milwaukee starting pitcher Zach Davies finally returned from the disabled list and threw five innings and allowed only one run against the Cubs, while striking out seven batters. Davies looked good, but he more than likely won't be fantasy relevant this season. With the Brewers addition of Gio Gonzalez, there may not be a rotation... Read More

Milwaukee Brewers reliever Jeremy Jeffress gave up a run on two hits and a walk on Friday night against the Pirates to blow the save. Though it may seem like bad news, there is actually a silver lining to this. This was the third save opportunity in a row for Jeffress after converting the last... Read More

Wade Miley Hit Hard Friday

Milwaukee Brewers starter Wade Miley gave up two runs through five innings on Friday. Though the results don't seem bad, he allowed 10 hits and walked a batter while only striking out four. Miley rarely gets through six innings and doesn't strike anyone out, so he doesn't offer a whole lot of upside this late... Read More

Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Jimmy Nelson is unlikely to return to the Brewers in the 2018 season according to GM David Stearns and manager Craig Counsell. Nelson underwent shoulder surgery last September and has yet to begin a rehab assignment. Nelson says that he is doing everything in his power to come back this season,... Read More

Zach Davies Sent To Minors

Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Zach Davies was optioned to the minors on Thursday along with Corey Knebel. Unlike Knebel, this doesn't look like a demotion, but more of an opportunity for Davies to get in some extra time before returning to the majors from a shoulder injury. Davies had a breakout year in 2017 with... Read More

Milwaukee Brewers reliever Joakim Soria is expected to come off the disabled list for Friday's game against the Pirates. Soria had been on the disabled list with a groin strain but is feeling good after throwing to live hitters on Tuesday. Corey Knebel was optioned to the minors on Thursday, which looks to be the...

Corey Knebel Sent To Minors

Milwaukee Brewers reliever Corey Knebel was demoted to Triple-A on Thursday. While it is certainly upsetting for Knebel owners, the move isn't surprising. Knebel has been having a terrible year with a 5.08 ERA and has continued to struggle in the bullpen since losing his job, meanwhile, Jeremy Jeffress and Josh Hader have been stellar... Read More

Milwaukee Brewer reliever Corey Knebel lost his closer job in late July and has continues to pitch worse ever since. On August 1st, his ERA was 3.98 and it now sits at 5.08. Through nine appearances so far this month, he has allowed at least one run in five of them. During his time away... Read More

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun went 2-for-4 with two doubles and a run scored during Wednesday's win against the Reds. Braun had recently missed a little time with tightness in his rib cage, but seems to be healthy again. Due to his age, injury risk, and the Brewers abundance of players, he doesn't play every... Read More

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Lorenzo Cain went 3-for-5 with an RBI in Wednesday's win against the Reds. Cain has been hitting very well lately, posting a .389 average and .922 OPS over the last two weeks with five steals. Though he doesn't offer a whole lot of power, he is a great source of batting average... Read More

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich went 4-for-4 with a walk and a home run on Wednesday against the Reds. Yelich has been red hot over the last month batting .345 with a 1.059 OPS and nine home runs. It looks like the production increase expected from moving from Miami to Milwaukee has finally started to... Read More

Milwaukee Brewers reliever Jeremy Jeffress recorded his fifth save of the year and second in a row on Wednesday against the Reds. Before Jeffress got the save on Monday, Josh Hader had recorded three saves in a row, so the closer situation in Milwaukee still seems pretty murky. They are both worth owning right now... Read More

Milwaukee Brewers starter Freddy Peralta threw seven shutout innings on Wednesday in a win against the Reds. Peralta also only allowed three hits and two walks while striking out seven. Though Peralta has been having some trouble staying consistent lately, he's now posted back to back quality starts and three of the last four, which... Read More

Milwaukee Brewers starter Chase Anderson is heading into a good looking match up against the Reds on Monday, but it might not be as juicy as it looks. Anderson has posted a 8.31 ERA in his last two starts against San Diego and Atlanta. On top of that, the Reds offense has been coming alive... Read More

Milwaukee Brewers reliever Jeremy Jeffress pitched two innings and gave up one run during Sunday's win versus the Cardinals. Josh Hader came in for the save in the ninth, and both relievers are having amazing seasons. Both Hader and Jeffress look to see some save chances while Corey Knebel is still out of the role,... Read More

Milwaukee Brewers reliever Josh Hader struck out two batters on nine pitches to secure a 2-1 lead and a save on Sunday against the Cardinals. Hader now has back to back saves in his last two appearances and sits at 10 on the season. The Brewers have had a few different relievers get chances at... Read More

Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Jhoulys Chacin threw six shutout innings in a win against the Cardinals on Sunday. This now marks three consecutive quality starts for Chacin and brings his ERA and WHIP down to a respectable 3.58 and 1.17 respectively. The recent success is encouraging but hard to trust. Chacin has a low strikeout... Read More

Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Jhoulys Chacin struck out 10 batters while throwing seven scoreless innings on Tuesday in a win against the Cubs. Even after this start, Chacin still has a 3.91 ERA and 1.22 WHIP on the season with a low strikeout rate which doesn't offer a lot of upside. Chacin is a two... Read More

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun slugged two home runs during Tuesday's win versus the Cubs. Due to his age, injury concerns, down season and the Brewers abundance of hitters, Braun was looking to be the odd man out most days in the lineup, but he might be playing his way into more playing time. Braun... Read More

Lorenzo Cain Homers In Win

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Lorenzo Cain stayed hot on Tuesday with two hits, including a homer. Cain has been on fire lately with a .365 average and .919 OPS over the last two weeks with a couple of steals. Though he doesn't provide a lot of power, Cain is a great source of average and runs... Read More

Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve has been rule out through at least Tuesday and is headed back to Houston to see the team doctors. Altuve has been on the disabled list with a knee issue and though it's uncertain whether this is a setback or planned, it means that the earliest we could see... Read More

San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey is starting at first base on Sunday after leaving Friday's game and sitting Saturday with concussion symptoms. Posey was able to pass a concussion test Saturday afternoon and was cleared to play Sunday. Posey has been red hot over the last two weeks hitting .400 with a .933 OPS,... Read More

Seattle Mariners second baseman Dee Gordon is out of the lineup for the second day in a row on Sunday. Gordon initially left Thursday's game after twisting his right ankle, then played Friday and now has sat the last two days. Hopefully Gordon doesn't miss too much more time, but even if he doesn't, the... Read More

Houston Astros reliever Roberto Osuna was reinstated Sunday from his 75 game suspension. It has been a while since Osuna has pitched, so he may not take over the closer role immediately, but he did through seven shutout innings with eight strikeouts in the minors before being reinstated, which is encouraging. Osuna is a most... Read More

Houston Astros starter Lance McCullers Jr. was sent to the 10-day disabled list on Sunday with right elbow discomfort. McCullers exited Saturday's game against the Dodgers with the injury, but the extent of the injury is currently unknown. There should be a more in depth update soon, but right elbow discomfort sounds worrisome. Collin McHugh... Read More

Joey Votto Out Sunday

Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto is getting a rare day off Sunday against the Nationals. Votto is prone to having frustrating first halves, then making up for it after the All Star Break, but we have yet to see signs that it is coming this year. After putting up 36 home runs with a... Read More

Miami Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto is out of the lineup Sunday against the Phillies. Realmuto has been playing a lot recently and needs a day off and has a .125/.222/.125 slash line against Aaron Nola in his career, so the Marlins decided today would be a good day to rest him up. Realmuto should be... Read More

Jesus Aguilar Out Sunday

Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Colorado. With the additions of Jonathan Schoop and Mike Moustakas, the Brewers have too many players for everyone to play every day and Aguilar is going to be sitting more often. After being scorching hot for most of the season,... Read More
