News: Blazek will remain in the Brewers' bullpen for the time being, according to MLB.com's Adam McCalvy.
Impact: Blazek was an option to start Wednesday in the spot made available by the placement of Wily Peralta (side) on the disabled list, but the Brewers will give the ball to Mike Fiers on short rest, and keep Blazek in the bullpen for now. Blazek owns a sparkling 1.59 ERA ERA in 18 appearances out of the Brewers' bullpen this season, so he could still be an option in the starting rotation at some point.
News: Segura (finger) will be activated from the disabled list Friday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Impact: X-rays recently taken on Segura's broken finger apparently came back clean, and he will return to action Friday without requiring a rehab stint, and after missing only the minimum 15 days. Segura will reclaim his role as the Brewers' starting shortstop when he is activated, which will likely send Luis Sardinas back to Triple-A.
News: Fiers will start Wednesday on short rest in place of the injured Wily Peralta (side).
Impact: Fiers will go on three days of rest Wednesday for the third time in his career. He has given up two earned runs or fewer in five of his last six starts, but he will face a tough test Wednesday against a surging Giants team.
News: Lucroy (toe) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Brevard County on Thursday, MLB.com's Adam McCalvy reports.
Impact: Lucroy is scheduled to play four games with Brevard County, and if all goes well, he will return to action next Monday against the Cardinals. He will resume his role as the Brewers' primary catcher once he has been activated from the disabled list.
News: Herrera is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Giants.
Impact: This marks Herrera's third absence from the lineup in the past five games, with Luis Sardinas and Hector Gomez again holding down the middle infield. Herrera and Gomez will likely continue to split at-bats, but Scooter Gennett figures to eventually rejoin the big-league squad.
News: Gennett is 6-for-20 (.300) with a home run and three RBI through five games with Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Impact: The Brewers optioned Gennett to Colorado Springs last week in an effort to snap him out of an early-season funk, and the early results have been promising. It remains to be seen when he will return to Milwaukee, however.
News: Goforth was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Tuesday.
Impact: As expected, Goforth will take the roster spot of Wily Peralta (rib cage) but likely pitch out of the bullpen. Goforth has uninspiring numbers -- 3.43 ERA, 7.7 K/9 and 4.7 BB/9 -- in 16 appearances out of the bullpen for Colorado Springs this season.
News: Davis went a perfect 3-for-3 with two home runs in Monday's loss to San Francisco.
Impact: Davis has had a rough start to the season up to this point, but he had a big day on Monday. He hit home runs number four and five on the year and the two RBI brought his total up to 16. The .245 average is ugly and Davis has yet to return to last season's form. He'll look to build on this over the next week or so.
News: Braun went 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in Monday's loss to the Giants.
Impact: Braun has been on an absolute tear as of late and he hit another monster home run on Monday. In the last two weeks Braun is hitting .310 with six home runs and 19 RBI. He seems to be back to old form and clearly looks healthy once again.
News: Lohse gave up five runs on six hits in Monday's loss to the Giants.
Impact: Lohse pitched 5.1 innings on Monday, walking three and striking out seven. He pitched well through the first five innings, but got banged up in the sixth which led to his fifth loss of the season. Lohse is now 3-5 with a 5.80 ERA.
