Recent Update

8/16:Ryan Braun is out of the lineup for game one of today’s doubleheader against the Cubs. The Brewers have been working in more off days for Braun this season in an effort to keep him healthy, which has worked well so far. In August, he is slashing .381/.449/1.000 with eight HRs and 19 RBI. He is expected to play in the second game later today. Kirk Nieuwenhuis is in the lineup in left field, batting sixth against Trevor Cahill. Cahill has mainly been a long relief arm, and hasn’t started since last season. This year he has a 3.07 ERA and 1.39 WHIP over 41 innings of work.--Ben Ruppert - RotoBaller

Beat Writer Chatter

  • @AdamMcCalvy: Kirk Nieuwenhuis is on his way to Triple-A, but the "priority" there remains Brinson, Cordell and Phillips:
  • @AdamMcCalvy: Brinson, Cordell, Phillips remain the priority OFs at Triple-A, Counsell said. Story coming to the site on how Nieuwenhuis will fit.
  • @AdamMcCalvy: Nieuwenhuis did accept the assignment, @MikeVassallo13 says. Joins a crowded Triple-A outfield with Brinson, Cordel…
  • @Haudricourt: Nieuwenhuis had been DFA'd when LHP Brent Suter was called up. Cleared waivers and accepted assignment.
  • @AdamMcCalvy: So Nieuwenhuis clears waivers. Let's see if he accepts the outright asssignment.
  • @Haudricourt: #Brewers have seven days to trade, outright or release Nieuwenhuis. Or he could be claimed. Stearns said they could find room on AAA roster.
  • @Haudricourt: Several things in play with #Brewers DFA of Nieuwenhuis. He can refuse outright assignment. Has split contract with $257,000 in minors.
  • @Haudricourt: Nieuwenhuis was primary backup in CF to Broxton, who opened in huge slump. Franklin, Perez, Thames, not really CF types. Perhaps Santana.
  • @Haudricourt: With the #Brewers designating Nieuwenhuis, the primary backup OFs are Pérez and Franklin. And, as he already has, Thames can play OF.
  • @Haudricourt: Shows you how bad the #Brewers needed another reliever. Counsell really liked Nieuwenhuis.
  • @Haudricourt: Kirk Nieuwenhuis, who needed some solid contact after rough start, rips double to deep center with one down in eighth.
  • @Haudricourt: Perez and Nieuwenhuis extend Martinez’s pitch count by drawing two-out walks.
  • @Haudricourt: Nieuwenhuis and Perez, both of whom are 3 for 9 against Martinez, in #Brewers starting lineup tonight.
  • @Todd_Rosiak: Nothing doing in the seventh for the Brewers, and Jacob Barnes comes on to face the Cubs’ 8-9-1. Kirk Nieuwenhuis also in LF now.
  • @Todd_Rosiak: Kirk Nieuwenhuis draws a two-out walk, but Arcia strikes out. Drake out to start the eighth with the Brewers still trailing, 8-7.
  • @Todd_Rosiak: @jwhornets CC said tonight that Broxton will continue to get PT — he’s a young player and deserves long leash. Nieu…
