News: Ramirez is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds.
Impact: Ramirez has started every game at third base since Aug. 15, so he will get a well-deserved day off Sunday. Mark Reynolds will man the hot corner for the Brewers in Ramirez's place.
Sat. Sep 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Segura is not in the lineup Saturday against the Reds.
Impact: Segura's bat has come around a bit in recent weeks, with 10 base knocks in 33 September at-bats so far, though he still has just one extra-base hit since Aug. 2. He'll sit in favor of Hector Gomez following 10 consecutive starts.
Sat. Sep 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gennett is not in the lineup Saturday against the Reds.
Impact: A long series of opposing right-handed pitchers kept Gennett in the lineup for each of the Brewers' first 12 games to begin September, but he'll turn second base over to Rickie Weeks with lefty David Holmberg starting for Cincinnati.
Sat. Sep 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Davis (forearm) is back in the lineup Saturday against the Reds.
Impact: Davis was afforded a two-day break to rest his sore right forearm but will return Saturday to take on lefty David Holmberg. In 124 plate appearance against left-handers this season, Davis is batting .274/.323/.504 with six homers.
Fri. Sep 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Davis (forearm) is out of the lineup Friday against the Reds.
Impact: Davis will sit for the second straight day with sore forearm, and is still listed as day-to-day. Gerardo Parra will play in his relief Friday in left field and will bat sixth for the Brewers.
Fri. Sep 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lucroy had another solid night at the plate going 2-for-3 with a run scored and one RBI against the Reds on Friday night.
Impact: The Brewers catcher/first baseman also picked up a walk on the night, raising his OBP to .370 on the season. Although Lucroy hasn't hit a home run since August 17, he has managed to keep his batting average hovering around the .300 mark.
Fri. Sep 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Overbay went 1-for-2 with one RBI against the Reds on Friday night.
Impact: Although he doesn't get a ton of opportunities coming off the bench as a pinch hitter, Overbay has turned into a clutch hitter. He knocked in the winning run for the Brewers in the bottom of the ninth inning as he singled to deep left center driving in Logan Schafer from third base.
Fri. Sep 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Rodriguez (5-5) picked up the win in relief against the Reds on Friday night as he pitched the ninth inning while striking out one and walking two.
Impact: The game was tied when Rodriguez came on in relief, so it was a solid win where he did not give up a run. Rodriguez has struggled of late in giving up six earned runs in his last eight appearances, but he is currently tied for fourth in the league with 41 saves.
Fri. Sep 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lohse gave up two runs on five hits over 6.2 innings pitched as he walked two and struck out six batters against the Reds on Friday in a no-decision.
Impact: It was a nice bounceback game for Lohse as he threw 105 pitches on the night in the quality start. He wasn't able to snag the win, but did keep his club in the game against an underwhelming Reds offense. Lohse next takes the mound on Thursday against the Cardinals.
Fri. Sep 12, 2014 | STATS
News: Miami Marlins pitcher Anthony DeSclafani has received a three-game suspension and Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Fiers has been fined for their actions after Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton got hit in the face by a pitch from Fiers on Thursday.
Impact: Fiers received an undisclosed fine for what the league said were "his actions which contributed to the benches clearing."
Thu. Sep 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Braun (thumb) is back in the lineup Thursday against the Marlins.
Impact: Absent from the lineup the last two days due to increased soreness in his right thumb, Braun will tough it out and play Thursday as the Brewers look to walk away with a split in the series against Miami. Braun is 4-for-10 with two doubles and a homer in his career against Thursday's starter, Nathan Eovaldi, but he's just 4-for-21 without an extra-base hit so far in September.
Thu. Sep 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Braun (thumb) hit a solo home run in Thursday's 4-2 win over Miami.
Impact: Braun had missed the last couple of games with soreness in his right thumb, but returned to launch his 19th homer of the season. Barring any setbacks, it should be OK to get him back in your lineup.
Thu. Sep 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Rodriguez threw a perfect ninth inning Thursday to earn his 41st save of the season.
Impact: Rodriguez struck out a batter and tossed just 11 pitches in a much-needed clean outing. In fact, it was his first 1-2-3 appearance in a save situation since Aug. 15.
Thu. Sep 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Fiers tossed five scoreless innings against Miami on Thursday, scattering three hits with eight strikeouts.
Impact: Fiers hit Giancarlo Stanton in the face during the fifth inning, and was visibly shaken up, in what was a scary scene. Even though Fiers was performing well, and at a pitch count of just 82, Milwaukee must have felt he was too worked up to continue. The funky-throwing Fiers has been brilliant since joining the rotation in early August, entering Thursday's start with a 5-1 record and 46:7 K:BB in 41.2 innings. We've seen a stretch like this from him before in 2012, so it's not completely out of the ordinary. In any event, hopefully he can put the Stanton situation behind him, and keep rolling in his only start next week at St. Louis.
Thu. Sep 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Davis was held out of Thursday's lineup due partially to a sore right forearm, MLB.com's Adam McCalvy reports.
Impact: Davis isn't expected to be dealing with anything serious, so look for the outfielder to return to action Friday against the Reds. If manager Ron Roenicke does elect to play it conservatively, however, look for Gerardo Parra to take his place once again in left field.
Thu. Sep 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Reynolds is out of the Brewers' lineup again Thursday.
Impact: Playing time has all but dried up for Reynolds, as he's set to sit Thursday for the sixth time in seven games. The 31-year-old may see starts against lefties over the final weeks of the season, but Matt Clark is starting his second straight game Thursday and manager Ron Roenicke may be inclined to give him most of the time at first base.
Thu. Sep 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Clark will make his second straight start at first base Thursday.
Impact: Clark hit his first career home run Wednesday, and manager Ron Roenicke will reward the 27-year-old with another start Thursday. With Mark Reynolds and Lyle Overbay failing to provide much of a spark from the first base position, there's at least a chance Clark carves out a regular role over the final weeks of the season.
Thu. Sep 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Davis is out of the lineup Thursday against the Marlins.
Impact: The more defensively inclined Gerardo Parra will get the nod in left field Thursday, with Mike Fiers, who has a 46.2 percent fly-ball rate this season, set to start for Milwaukee. Davis is 10-for-37 with two homers so far in September and remains the favorite for playing time.
Thu. Sep 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Clark hit his first career home run Wednesday, going 1-for-2 with a run and two RBI versus the Marlins.
Impact: Clark, who slashed .304/.376/.548 with 26 homers in 414 minor league at-bats this season, has gone 2-for-9 since getting called up and is line to see more playing time at first base for the Brewers.
Thu. Sep 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Peralta picked up his 16th win of the season Wednesday, allowing a run on five hits with three walks and five strikeouts over 6.2 innings against the Marlins.
Impact: Peralta was able to earn the Brewers their second victory in 15 games and fourth in 20 contests. After blowing up at the end of August -- giving up 13 runs in two starts -- the right-hander has started September off with two consecutive quality starts. Peralta will pitch Tuesday in St. Louis.
Wed. Sep 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Braun (thumb) is not in the Brewers' lineup Wednesday.
Impact: It was reported Tuesday that his thumb has been bothering him more of late, and while he made a pinch-hit appearance and remained in Tuesday's game, it's not surprising to see the Brewers leave him out of the lineup after he saw two at-bats the previous night. Look for he and Gerardo Parra to share time in right field, at least in the short term. He'll likely be available again off the bench Wednesday.
Wed. Sep 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Reynolds is not in the Brewers' lineup Wednesday.
Impact: Reynolds has only been seeing about half the at-bats at first base over the past couple weeks, and he'll sit in favor of Matt Clark on Wednesday. While he might have more power potential than anyone on waivers in most leagues, it's hard to own him in standard leagues when the at-bats are unpredictable and his batting average is so devastating (.196).
Wed. Sep 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Rodriguez had a miserable outing in a non-save situation Tuesday against the Marlins, allowing three runs on two hits (both of which were home runs) and one walk while striking out one to take the loss.
Impact: Rodriguez has been struggling of late, as he has now allowed six runs on eight hits and three walks in his last six appearances. He has a 3.34 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 70:15 K:BB in 62 innings this year.
Wed. Sep 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Garza pitched just four innings Tuesday, allowing two runs (one earned) on six hits and one walk, while striking out seven in a no-decision.
Impact: It has been a struggle for Garza ever since his return from the disabled list, as he has now allowed eight runs (seven earned) on 14 hits and two walks in his first two starts back (spanning just seven innings). He has a 3.83 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 114:45 K:BB in 152.2 innings this year. His next start is scheduled for Sunday at home against the Reds.
Wed. Sep 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Wooten was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday.
Impact: He will be available to pitch out of the Brewers' bullpen Wednesday, but even with Francisco Rodriguez's recent struggles, it's unlikely Wooten will be used in many high-leverage situations.
Tue. Sep 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Braun's right thumb has been bothering him even more of late, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Impact: Manager Ron Roenicke suggested the thumb discomfort that has hindered Braun's ability to grip a bat throughout the entire season has just recently spread to his hand, leading to his day off Tuesday. It does sound like Braun will continue playing through the issue, but he's batting just .230 since the All-Star break and it's uncertain how effective he'll be. Braun said he's discussed possible surgical options but none of the experts with whom he's consulted has provided enough of a guarantee that the problem would be corrected through surgery.
Tue. Sep 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nelson has been moved to the bullpen, Andrew Gruman of FOX Sports Wisconsin reports.
Impact: The Brewers opted to keep Nelson in the rotation initially upon Matt Garza's return from the DL, but they finally made the move Tuesday, assigning Nelson to the bullpen. He'll remain there for the rest of the season, barring injury to one of the team's starters, but Nelson should be a rotation candidate coming out of spring training.
Tue. Sep 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Reynolds is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Marlins.
Impact: It seems manager Ron Roenicke's patience with Reynolds has worn completely thin, as he's sitting the 31-year-old for the eighth time in 13 games. Reynolds is off to a 1-for-13 start to September and hasn't hit a homer since Aug. 14, so look for the lefty-swinging Lyle Overbay to continue seeing the majority of the work at first over the final weeks.
Tue. Sep 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Braun is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Marlins.
Impact: Despite some lingering pain in his right thumb, Braun was able to tough it out and play in the final three games of the Cardinals series as well as the opener against Miami. The issue seems to be clearly inhibiting his abilities at the plate, however, as Braun's batting just .175 with one extra-base hit in his last 11 games. Manager Ron Roenicke will give him a day to rest up, slotting Gerardo Parra in right field in his absence.
Tue. Sep 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Braun went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Monday's 6-4 loss to the Marlins.
Impact: Braun, who has been battling a lingering thumb injury, is in a 7-for-40 (.175) slump over the last 11 games. It's pretty clear that the slugger isn't right, but he keeps running out there every day for the struggling Brewers.
Tue. Sep 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gallardo lasted only 3.2 innings Monday in a loss to the Marlins while coughing up six runs (five earned) on nine hits with two walks and three home runs.
Impact: Gallardo falls to 8-9 on the season after back-to-back stinkers. The veteran right-hander has allowed 10 runs over 8.2 innings (10.38 ERA) so far in September. He will pitch at home versus Cincinnati on Saturday unless the Brewers keep Jimmy Nelson in a six-man rotation in which case Gallardo would throw Sunday.
Mon. Sep 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gomez (wrist) will return to the lineup Monday against the Marlins, playing center field and batting leadoff, Andrew Gruman of FOXSportsWisconsin.com reports.
Impact: It appeared less than a week ago that Gomez could miss close to the rest of the regular season with the wrist ailment, but after making unexpectedly positive progress while taking batting practice over the weekend, the Brewers signed off on his return. With Milwaukee's playoff hopes taking a huge hit during their recent nine-game losing streak, the return of Gomez could provide precisely the spark the team needs. He looked to be fine while making a pinch-hitting appearance Sunday against the Cardinals, delivering an RBI single.
Sep 7, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nelson allowed four runs on five hits and two walks while striking out three in five innings in the Brewers' 9-1 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday.
Impact: It's the most earned runs he's allowed since Aug. 20. He's lost four consecutive starts and five of six. Despite a strong August, Nelson's ERA still sits at 4.38 on the season.
Sep 7, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gomez (wrist) could return to the lineup as soon as Monday, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Impact: Gomez will be held out of the starting lineup for the seventh straight game Sunday against the Cardinals, but there have been rumblings of him potentially serving as a pinch hitter. He was able to take batting practice both Saturday and Sunday, but the real issue for the center fielder is when he swings and misses at pitches, which doesn't happen often during BP. Known for his powerful swings, Gomez likely won't risk re-injury by making his return too soon, as one powerful hack could potentially tweak the wrist. However, he met with team doctors prior to Sunday's tilt, and reports are getting more and more optimistic.
Sep 7, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gomez (wrist) remains out of the lineup Sunday against the Cardinals.
Impact: Gomez continues to nurse a wrist injury, but is optimistic he'll be able to return to the lineup Monday. With the scuffling Brewers still hanging on to a playoff spot, the team desperately needs their center fielder's bat atop the lineup if they want to remain in the hunt.
Sat. Sep 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Reynolds is out of the Brewers' lineup again Saturday.
Impact: Saturday's absence will mark Reynolds' second in a row and sixth in the team's last 10 games. The 31-year-old is batting .183/.252/.413 since the All-Star break, but his power alone may be enough for him to maintain a slight edge over Lyle Overbay.
Sat. Sep 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Braun is out of the lineup Saturday against the Cardinals, Andrew Gruman of FOX Sports Wisconsin reports.
Impact: A reason for Braun's absence hasn't been provided, but it sounds like the team will elaborate on the issue prior to the game. Gerardo Parra will take over for Braun in right field with Logan Schafer in center against right-hander Lance Lynn.
Sat. Sep 6, 2014 | STATS
News: Segura went 3 for 4 with two runs scored in Friday's 6-2 win over St. Louis.
Impact: Segura had been 1 for 17 over his previous six games.
Sat. Sep 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gomez (wrist) could return to the lineup as early as Monday, the Associated Press reports.
Impact: With the Brewers' offense scuffling in a big way, the return of Gomez could provide a huge boost, as the team tries to cling to the second NL Wild Card and potentially push back into the lead in the NL Central during the final three-plus weeks of the season.
Sat. Sep 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lohse struck out five and walked two while giving up five runs on four hits over four innings in a loss to the Cardinals on Saturday night.
Impact: After throwing 79 pitches in four frames, Lohse was lifted for a pinch hitter in the bottom of the fourth, as the Brewers had a bases-loaded situation with two outs. He's been scuffling since the start of August, and there's some concern that he's not completely over the ankle injury that sidelined him a few weeks back.
Sat. Sep 6, 2014 | STATS
News: Originally out of the Milwaukee Brewers' starting lineup because of an ailing right thumb, Braun took batting practice and was inserted to play against St. Louis on Saturday.
Impact: Braun missed two games this week for the birth of a daughter, then went 1 for 4 in Friday night's 6-2 win as Milwaukee stopped a nine-game losing streak.
Sat. Sep 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Schafer was scratched from the lineup for Saturday's game against the Cardinals.
Impact: Schafer was set to start in place of the injured Ryan Braun (thumb), but Braun was added to the lineup after going through batting practice, and Schafer will instead open on the bench on Saturday night.
Sat. Sep 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Braun (thumb) was a late addition to Saturday's lineup, MLB.com's Adam McCalvy reports.
Impact: Braun wasn't in the Brewers' original lineup, but manager Ron Roenicke decided to insert him after Braun made it through batting practice without issue. Reportedly, Braun's thumb has been sore for a few days, so though he'll start Saturday, he may not be 100 percent healthy.
Sat. Sep 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Braun is currently out of the lineup Saturday due to a lingering thumb injury, but he will take batting practice and could be a late addition, Andrew Gruman of FOX Sports Wisconsin reports.
Impact: Apparently, Braun's thumb issue flared up again recently, prompting manager Ron Roenicke to exclude him from his lineup for Saturday. However, if Braun shows enough in batting practice, he could still be added late. If that happens, expect another update on his status.
Fri. Sep 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Davis hit his 22nd home run on Friday against the Cardinals, as he went 1-for-4 with a run scored and two RBI.
Impact: The two-run sixth-inning blast that Davis hit put the nail in the coffin on Cardinals starter John Lackey. Davis gives owners a good power source, though his lack of contact (110 strikeouts) keeps him from being a dominant player.
Fri. Sep 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Segura (.235/.276/.314) went 3-for-4 with two runs scored on Friday against the Cardinals.
Impact: It's been a rough season for Segura who has not gotten anywhere near his 2013 production. Although the three hits are nice to see, it's a little too late to expect much from Segura here on out.
Fri. Sep 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gennett had a big night on Friday against the Cardinals as he went 2-for-4 with one run scored and three RBI.
Impact: Before Friday's game, it was a rough patch for Gennett as his batting average dipped 15 points the last couple weeks. Gennett (.298/.330/.455) continues to sit against most left-handed pitching, but he remains a valuable option down the stretch for owners.
Fri. Sep 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Fiers (5-2) picked up the win against the Cardinals on Friday as he pitched 6.2 innings, allowing two runs on seven hits while notching five strikeouts.
Impact: Since being moved to the rotation on Aug. 9, Fiers has been simply dominant. Along with his five wins, he has struck out 46 hitters in 41.2 innings while running an impressive 2.03 ERA. More important, Fiers snapped a nine-game losing streak by the Brewers.
Fri. Sep 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gomez (wrist) took about 60 swings Friday and said he will hit in the cage again Saturday and hopefully take batting practice, Fox Sports Wisconsin's Andrew Gruman reports.
Impact: It was originally reported that Gomez might miss a couple weeks with the wrist injury, but at the rate he's progressing, he could beat that timetable by a week.
Fri. Sep 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Reynolds is out of the lineup Friday against the Cardinals.
Impact: His batting averaged recently dipped below .200, and Lyle Overbay will get the start at first base Friday as Ron Roenicke searches for anything to help get the Brewers out of the team's funk.
Fri. Sep 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Braun is back in the lineup Friday against the Cardinals.
Impact: He missed the last two games to be with his wife as she gave birth to the couple's first child, but will now rejoin the Brewers, hitting third and playing right field.
Thu. Sep 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Peralta (15-10) struck out seven while allowing one three runs on seven hits and two walks Thursday against the Cardinals.
Impact: While that's three straight losses for Peralta, he certainly looked a mile better in this start than he did over the last two, when he surrendered 13 earned runs. He's slated to draw the Marlins on Wednesday.
Thu. Sep 4, 2014 | STATS
News: Davis could be heating up after he went 3 for 4 in Wednesday's 6-2 loss at Wrigley Field.
Impact: Davis went 5 for 12 with a home run and a double in the series.
Thu. Sep 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gomez's sore wrist is feeling much better, and he could return earlier than anticipated, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Impact: Gomez was expected to miss a week or two due to his wrist injury, and it appears possible he could return around the shorter end of that estimate. The Brewers could use Gomez back in the lineup, as they have lost eight straight games entering Thursday's contest.
Thu. Sep 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Braun (personal) is expected to rejoin the Brewers on Friday.
Impact: Braun and his wife Larisa welcomed their first child into the world Thursday, leaving Logan Schafer to pick up a second straight start in the outfield. After taking the night to spend some time with his newborn, Braun should slot back into right field for the second game of a critical series with the division-leading Cardinals.
Thu. Sep 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Braun (personal) remains out of the lineup Thursday against the Cardinals.
Impact: The Brewers will be without Braun for the opener of a crucial four-game set against St. Louis, as the 30-year-old is still away attending to the birth of his first child. With Carlos Gomez (wrist) out as well, the Brewers will be forced to start Logan Schafer and Gerardo Parra in center field and right field, respectively.
Wed. Sep 3, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Garza (7-8) was dreadful in his return from the disabled list Wednesday, lasting only three innings and giving up six runs on eight hits with a walk and three strikeouts against the Cubs.
Impact: It was Garza's first appearance in a month after dealing with a nagging oblique injury. The right-hander is having a fine year, sporting a 3.87 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 107:44 K:BB in 148.2 innings. Garza will try to get back on track Monday versus the Marlins.
Wed. Sep 3, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Braun will be out of the lineup Wednesday against the Pirates due to the birth of his first child, Andrew Gruman of Fox Sports Wisconsin reports.
Impact: Braun flew back to Milwaukee to be with his wife for the birth of their first child, guaranteeing he will miss at least Wednesday's game, if not more. The Brewers are thin in the outfield with Carlos Gomez also out due to a wrist injury. Gerardo Parra and Logan Schafer are the likely candidates to start in center and right field while the two starters are out.
Tue. Sep 2, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Parra saw his third straight start Tuesday and went 1-for-4 against the Cubs.
Impact: He should be in line for significant playing time in the short term, as Carlos Gomez (wrist) is expected to miss about two weeks.
Tue. Sep 2, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gallardo struggled mightily Tuesday, giving up a season-high seven runs (five earned) on eight hits and two walks with four strikeouts in five innings against the Cubs.
Impact: It was an uncharacteristically horrible outing for Gallardo at the worst possible time for the Brewers, who have now lost seven straight, but the poor defense behind him definitely played a role as well. The five earned runs Gallard surrendered Tuesday equaled the total he had given up in his previous four starts combined, so there's reason to believe he'll offer a better performance his next time out, Monday at home against the Marlins.
Tue. Sep 2, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gomez will likely miss a couple weeks due to his wrist injury, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Tom Haudricourt reports.
Impact: The Brewers announced Tuesday that Gomez would be shut down for a week before resuming baseball drills, so in all likelihood, it will be about a two-week absence, although the Brewers will likely rush him back as soon as possible given the team's dwindling hopes of a Central Division crown. While Gomez is out, Gerardo Parra figures to see most of the starts against right-handed pitching, but Elian Herrera and Logan Schafer are also capable center fielders.
Tue. Sep 2, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Reynolds is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Cubs.
Impact: Reynolds is in a slump at the plate as of late, collecting just two hits over his past 16 at-bats. He will get the day off Tuesday in favor of Lyle Overbay at first base, who will bat seventh for the Brewers.
Tue. Sep 2, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Segura is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Cubs.
Impact: Segura has struggled offensively recently, and is currently on a 0-for-9 skid at the plate. Elian Herrera has received a few starts in his place recently due to the offensive woes, and will start there again Tuesday and bat eighth for the Brewers.
Tue. Sep 2, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gomez (wrist) is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Cubs.
Impact: Gomez left Sunday's game with a sore left wrist and missed Monday as a result. His injury isn't expected to keep him out of the lineup for a long period of time, but Gerardo Parra will start for him in center Tuesday and bat sixth for the Brewers.
Tue. Sep 2, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gindl was designated for assignment by the Brewers on Tuesday.
Impact: Gindl showed some promise last year by posting a .779 OPS over 57 big league games, but he played his way off the Brewers' 40-man roster by putting up just a .663 OPS in 110 games with Triple-A Nashville this season. It remains to be seen if he will remain with the Brewers if he clears waivers.
Tue. Sep 2, 2014 | RotoWire
News: The Brewers called up Gomez from Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday, MLB.com's Adam McCalvy reports.
Impact: Gomez earned his first trip to the majors since 2011 by posting an .808 OPS over 121 games over Triple-A Nashville this season. He will play almost exclusively off the bench for the Brewers, but could see some action at shortstop, where the Brewers have struggled to get much offense all season.
Tue. Sep 2, 2014 | RotoWire
News: The Brewers called up Clark from Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday, MLB.com's Adam McCalvy reports.
Impact: Clark was not even in the Brewers' organization until signing a minor league deal with the club in July, but he earned his first trip to the majors by posting an impressive .976 OPS over 53 games with Triple-A Nashville. The Brewers have struggled to get production from their first basemen of late, so the sizzling Clark could get a start or two to show what he can do.
Mon. Sep 1, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Parra went 3-for-4 with a solo home run Monday against the Cubs.
Impact: Parra hasn't been an everyday player since coming over to the Brewers and although he could have the occasional game like he did Monday, his limited playing time doesn't do his fantasy value any favors.
Mon. Sep 1, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nelson lost Monday against the Cubs as he pitched six innings and allowed three runs, nine hits and one walk to go along with four strikeouts.
Impact: Nelson turned in the minimum requirement for a quality start Monday, but didn't get much offensive support behind him. He was recalled to start this game and is likely heading to the bullpen, with Matt Garza returning soon.
Mon. Sep 1, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Wang (shoulder) was activated from the 15-day DL on Monday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Impact: Wang was sharp while on rehab assignment, giving up just seven earned runs while fanning 22 in 27 innings between rookie-level Arizona, Low-A Wisconsin and High-A Brevard County. However, the 22-year-old struggled mightily in 12 appearances with the big club earlier this season (11.12 ERA, 2.24 WHIP) and isn't likely to be entrusted with high-leverage work at any point in September.
Mon. Sep 1, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Garza (oblique) was activated from the 15-day DL on Monday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Impact: The Brewers went ahead and activated Garza a few days early, with 15 additional roster spots opening up overnight. Sidelined since early August with an oblique strain, Garza was cleared to oppose the Cubs' Kyle Hendricks on Wednesday after completing a simulated game over the weekend.
Mon. Sep 1, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bianchi (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Monday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Impact: This move clears a 40-man roster spot for one of the team's September callups, and while it doesn't necessarily end Bianchi's season -- he'll be eligible to return around the middle of the month -- the elbow injury may very well keep him out for the remainder of the year. Bianchi hit just .171/.203/.186 in 29 games with Milwaukee this season.

News: Schafer was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Monday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Impact: With the Brewers acquiring an upgrade in Gerardo Parra at the deadline, Schafer was sent to Nashville for the entirety of August, but he'll return Monday to occupy a spot on the team's expanded September roster. In 53 games with Milwaukee this season, Schafer has hit just .183/.267/.288, so his opportunities figure to remain limited over the final few weeks.

News: Garza (wrist) is out of the lineup Monday against the Cubs.
Impact: Gomez was removed from Sunday's game after three innings with what was labeled left wrist soreness, and he'll sit Monday as Scooter Gennett takes over atop the order and Gerardo Parra mans center. The Brewers were expected to send Gomez for an evaluation with doctors in Chicago, and while the results have not been disclosed, the team can afford to give Gomez another day or two with active rosters now at 40 players.

News: Nelson was recalled from High-A Brevard County and will start Monday against the Cubs, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Impact: Nelson will return Monday to oppose Jacob Tuner, in what figures to be his final start before heading to the bullpen. Mike Fiers' emergence and Matt Garza's impending return from an oblique injury has the young right-hander as the odd man out, but Nelson still projects as a key rotation piece in years to come. Nelson has posted a 4.10 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in nine starts for Milwaukee, after going 10-2 with a 1.46 ERA in 17 appearances (16 starts) with Triple-A Nashville.

News: Pagnozzi was called up from Triple-A Nashville on Monday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Impact: With active rosters expanding to 40 players Monday, the Brewers will welcome Pagnozzi aboard as backstop depth behind Jonathan Lucroy and Martin Maldonado. In 71 games with Nashville this season, the journeyman hit .215/.298/.382 with 11 homers, so he may only see opportunities as a pinch hitter or as a defensive replacement late in games.

News: Gomez has been diagnosed with a sprained left wrist and will be out of the starting lineup for at least one week. Gomez injured his wrist swinging a bat in Milwaukee's 15-5 loss to San Francisco on Sunday.
Impact: The two-time All Star will remain available as a pinch-runner and defensive replacement, but he will not swing a bat until Sunday. The Brewers say Gomez isn't going on the disabled list. Manager Ron Roenicke admits the injury could potentially keep Gomez out of the lineup for a couple of weeks.

News: Gomez (wrist) is doubtful for Monday's game against the Cubs, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Impact: Gomez left Sunday's game with wrist soreness and was seen being examined by the team's medical staff. While no definitive diagnosis has been made, Gomez is unlikely to play Monday, and his status for Tuesday's game could also be in jeopardy. Gomez will have the wrist examined by doctors in Chicago on Monday, after which a clearer diagnosis should be available.

News: Lohse allowed seven runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out three in 5.2 innings in the Brewers' 15-5 loss to the Giants on Sunday.
Impact: Lohse has been up and down this month, with two quality, one-run starts of six innings sandwiched between three shorter starts. Overall, he allowed 13 runs in five starts in August and went 1-3. He'll take the mound again Saturday against the Cardinals.

News: The Milwaukee Brewers have acquired Broxton from the Cincinnati Reds for two players to be named.
Impact: NL Central-leading Milwaukee announced the move to bolster its bullpen before Sunday's series finale against the San Francisco Giants. The 30-year-old Broxton is 4-2 with a 1.86 ERA and seven saves in 51 appearances this season, and he will be called upon to help set up for closer Francisco Rodriguez.

News: Gomez left Sunday's game with left wrist soreness.
Impact: It's unclear what caused the injury to Gomez, but he went into the clubhouse with the trainer. He was replaced in center field by Gerardo Parra and is considered day-to-day for now.

News: Broxton was traded to the Brewers on Sunday in exchange for two players to be named later, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports.
Impact: Broxton will strengthen a Milwaukee bullpen for the stretch run in 2014, but he's also under contract for the 2015 season and has a mutual option for 2016. He will likely take on an eighth-inning role for the Brewers with Francisco Rodriguez firmly entrenched as the team's closer, but could serve as the closer next season, as Rodriguez is on just a one-year deal. Though his strikeout rate has fallen back significantly since his peak years with the Dodgers, Broxton has been extremely reliable as a setup man for Aroldis Chapman this season, possessing a 1.86 ERA and 1.01 WHIP over 48.1 innings.

News: Reynolds is out of the lineup Sunday against the Giants.
Impact: In order to keeper Jonathan Lucroy's bat in the lineup, Reynolds will take a seat Sunday despite a left-hander in Madison Bumgarner starting. Lucroy will bat second in the order, as usual, while Martin Maldonado will catch and bat seventh for the Brewers.
Aug 31, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gennett is out of the lineup Sunday against the Giants.
Impact: Gennett will sit with the left-handed Madison Bumgarner on the mound for the Giants. Rickie Weeks will bat sixth and start at second, as is normally the case when the Brewers are facing a lefty.
Sat. Aug 30, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Fiers gave up seven hits, two walks, and three earned runs while striking out nine in seven innings to pick the loss against the Giants on Saturday.
Impact: The Giants scored all three of their runs in the fourth off Fiers when Michael Morse hit a two-run double before being plated by Brandon Crawford's RBI single. Otherwise, Fiers was excellent. In his five starts this season, he has a 1.93 ERA, 0.76 WHIP, and 46:9 K:BB.
