Milwaukee Brewers: How Bad Is The Bullpen Right Now?

The Milwaukee Brewers have suffered from the losses of Corey Knebel and Jeremy Jeffress to start the season. How bad of shape is this bullpen in?

Milwaukee Brewers: Josh Hader Dominating, Carrying Lackluster Bullpen

Milwaukee Brewers All-Star reliever Josh Hader has been tasked with a lot given that teammates Corey Knebel and Jeremy Jeffress have not been available to start this season. So far, Hader has excelled and has shown just how valuable he is to this team. Josh Hader has not given up a run in five appearances this season, […] Milwaukee Brewers: Josh Hader Dominating, Carrying Lackluster Bullpen - Reviewing the Brew - Reviewing the Brew - A Milwaukee Brewers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

On The Horizon: Cubs vs. Brewers series preview

The Cubs and their division rivals have started the 2019 season quite differently. The Brewers are off to a very good start to their 2019 season. How are they doing this? For that and more on the Cubs’ divisional rival, I asked Kyle Lesniewski, manager of our SB Nation Brewers site Brew Crew Ball, for an update on his team. I’ll admit, I was pretty nervous about how things would start off for the Brewers this season when camp broke. The losses of Corey Knebel and Jeremy Jeffress were huge blows to a bullpen that once again was supposed to be the team’s greatest strength. Without...

Milwaukee Brewers: Which relievers have stepped up in the Opening Week?

The Milwaukee Brewers have won four of their first five, and their bullpen is a key reason why. Closer Josh Hader has been the ‘electric dude’ that was expected, but who else has stepped up this year? Jeremy Jeffress is working his way back from shoulder soreness. Corey Knebel is done until 2020. The Milwaukee […] Milwaukee Brewers: Which relievers have stepped up in the Opening Week? - Reviewing the Brew - Reviewing the Brew - A Milwaukee Brewers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Milwaukee Brewers circling back on Dallas Keuchel, per report

Adding to the rotation in order to add to the bullpen? Corey Knebel is out for the rest of the season with Tommy John surgery, Jeremy Jeffress is still working his way back from shoulder weakness, and the Milwaukee Brewers are reportedly on the hunt for bullpen help. While some in the local media keep on insisting that the Brewers simply cannot afford to make another major addition after stretching payroll to record levels with the Grandal and Moustakas signings, the national media continues to connect the team to the top free agents still remaining on the market. Yesterday it was continued...

Like last season, the Milwaukee Brewers need some of their bullpen arms to step up

Like last season, the Milwaukee Brewers need some of their bullpen arms to step up

Doesn't it seem like that’s the story every year? The Milwaukee Brewers were counting on the bullpen to be a strength when the 2018 season started. And it did end up working out that way, but certainly not in the fashion that most fans and analysts figured it would at the outset of year. Last spring, the belief was that 2017 All-Star Corey Knebel and breakout rookie Josh Hader would anchor the ‘pen, and then a few other arms from the large group of relief depth assembled by David Stears would step forwards and seize roles. Included in that cache of pitchers were the likes of Matt...

The All-Star closer pitched with UCL damage for years, but the elbow finally gave out Corey Knebel pitched with damage to the UCL in his pitching elbow for four years.

Craig Kimbrel sweepstakes down to Atlanta and Milwaukee, per report

Will Mark A. open the pocketbook again? The Milwaukee Brewers have signed a trio of relievers over the past few days since learning that they would start out the season without two-thirds of the so-called ‘electric dudes.’ Both Corey Knebel (UCL) and Jeremy Jeffress (shoulder) will begin the 2019 season on the Injured List, with Jeffress unlikely to return until at least mid-to-late April and no definitive timetable on Knebel while he and the org continue to gather opinions about how to proceed with his ailing right elbow. Update on the Knebel injury: It will take a week or so to set...
