Milwaukee Brewers Player News: All Positions

News: Peralta (7-3) earned the win Thursday after holding the Padres scoreless with three strikeouts across 1.1 innings.
Impact: Peralta came into the fifth inning to replace starter Jordan Lyles and finished off the final out by whiffing Eric Hosmer. The win was the seventh of the season for the 23-year-old, who was recalled from Triple-A San Antonio on Sept. 1. Peralta owns a 5.36 WHIP and 1.45 ERA across 37 appearances in the majors this season.
News: Lyles did not factor into the decision during Thursday's win over the Padres, allowing one run on three hits and three walks while striking out nine across 4.2 innings.
Impact: Aside from serving up a solo home run to Eric Hosmer in the fourth inning, Lyles looked dominant Thursday, allowing just one earned run for the third straight game. On the down side, the 28-year-old failed to complete five innings to get the win, tossing 92 pitches in the effort. Even still, Lyles improves to a 4.17 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 140:53 K:BB on the season. He'll take the hill again on Wednesday at Cincinnati.
News: Hader earned a ninth-inning save Thursday after holding the Padres scoreless with one strikeout.
Impact: After Ray Black allowed two baserunners in the ninth inning, Hader was called upon to protect a 5-1 lead. He did so with ease, striking out Manuel Margot, then forcing Luis Torrens to ground into a double play. The save was Hader's 34th of the season as he improved to a 2.66 ERA and 0.77 WHIP.
News: Cain is being considered day-to-day after leaving Thursday's game against the Padres with left ankle discomfort, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Impact: Cain was forced to exit Thursday's contest as a result of the issue, but it doesn't appear to be overly serious. His availability for Friday's series opener against Pittsburgh will likely be determined after he's re-evaluated.
News: Cain left Thursday's game against the Padres with left ankle discomfort.
Impact: Cain hit his second home run in three games prior to exiting, but he was unable to finish the contest due to his injury and was replaced by Trent Grisham. Cain's status will be updated again when more information is released.
News: Woodruff's next appearance will come sometime during this weekend's series against the Pirates, Sophia Minnaert of Fox Sports Wisconsin reports.
Impact: The team will make a decision Thursday night about when Woodruff's next appearance will be, but the key takeaway is that he emerged from Tuesday's game physically able to stay on turn. The Brewers have an off day Monday, and Woodruff should get one more appearance next week as he attempts to build up in advance of a possible appearance in the playoffs.
News: Grisham is not in Thursday's lineup against the Padres.
Impact: He went 5-for-6 back on Sept. 9 but is 5-for-29 (.172) with 12 strikeouts in nine games since then. Hernan Perez is starting in right field and batting sixth.
News: Thames is not in Thursday's lineup against the Padres.
Impact: He will head to the bench with lefty Joey Lucchesi on the hill for San Diego. Tyler Austin is starting at first base, but Thames should be one of the first players to come into the game for Milwaukee once a righty comes in out of the Padres' bullpen.
News: Grandal is not in Thursday's lineup against the Padres.
Impact: Grandal has been really grinding for Milwaukee, as this represents his first day out of the lineup since Aug. 18. He is hitting .219/.390/.490 with seven home runs, 27 walks and 32 strikeouts in 28 games over that span. Manny Pina will start behind the dish and hit seventh. It would not be surprising if Grandal were in the lineup for each of the final nine games of the season.
News: Suter will not be allowed to pitch on back-to-back days this season, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Impact: It has been a pretty remarkable recovery for Suter, who underwent Tommy John surgery on Aug. 1, 2018 and has made it back in time to be a weapon out of the bullpen for the surging Brewers. He has asked to be allowed to pitch on back-to-back days, but manager Craig Counsell said it was "doctor's orders" to give him a rest day following every appearance. Suter, who last pitched Tuesday, has a 0.73 ERA, 0.41 WHIP, 10 strikeouts and two wins in 12.1 innings (six appearances) since being activated at the start of the month.
News: Hiura went 1-for-4 with a home run in Wednesday's loss to the Padres.
Impact: Padres starter Dinelson Lamet carved up the Brewers on Wednesday, outside of Hiura's sixth-inning solo shot that brought his team within a run. Hiura has not finished a game since rejoining the lineup a couple days ago, but he still received seven at-bats over the last two games and is 3-of-9 since returning to action Sept. 14 after missing just over two weeks with a hamstring injury. Hiura figures to play regularly the rest of the way, and it should not be much longer before he is ready to play a full nine innings again.
News: Houser (6-7) took the loss Wednesday as the Brewers fell 2-1 to the Padres. He allowed two runs on three hits over five innings while striking out five.
Impact: The right-hander made only one real mistake among his 70 pitches (46 strikes), but rookie Seth Mejias-Brean launched it into the seats for a two-run shot in the third inning. Houser will carry a 3.83 ERA and 109:36 K:BB through 103.1 innings into his next start Tuesday in Cincinnati.
