Milwaukee Brewers Camp Battles: Starting Rotation Update

Milwaukee Brewers Camp Battles: Starting Rotation Update

Who will man the final three slots? BCB’s Kyle Lesniewski published his review of the starting pitching situation, and I’d like to take it a step further: who will the final three starters be in the rotation? Competing for the three spots are Chase Anderson, Matt Garza, Tommy Milone, Jimmy Nelson, and Wily Peralta. The Brewers will have set up parameters to determine who will get those jobs, and what to do with the other contenders. My guesses as to said parameters are: past performance spring 2017 performance contract status options available bullpen availability left/right...

Milwaukee Brewers 2017 Preview by Position: Starting Rotation

Milwaukee Brewers 2017 Preview by Position: Starting Rotation

Will we see bounce backs from familiar faces or an influx of top prospects? Going into last season, there was a belief that one of the strengths of the Milwaukee Brewers could be their pitching rotation. With Matt Garza on the mend, Taylor Jungmann and Jimmy Nelson coming off solid seasons, the addition of Chase Anderson, and a hopeful bounceback from Wily Peralta, Tony Blengino of ESPN felt the rotation could be “better than expected” and buy time for the prized young arms to finish their development in the upper levels of the minor leagues. The rotation did ultimately work out to be a...

Shaw, Aguilar go yard as Milwaukee Brewers bite Diamondbacks, 8-5

Shaw, Aguilar go yard as Milwaukee Brewers bite Diamondbacks, 8-5

Brewers break out the bats to overcome a rough Matt Garza outing Milwaukee won a back-and-forth affair at “home” Thursday, beating Arizona 8-5 in Maryvale, just nine miles from the home of the Diamondbacks. Matt Garza started and earned an L, giving up four runs on five hits and a walk in 3.1 innings of work. He was bailed out by the red-hot Brewers offense and a bullpen that chipped in nearly six innings of one-run relief. The Brewers got a couple of dingers, one from Good Name Haver Travis Shaw (3), and the other from Jesus Aguilar, who hit his fourth of his spring. Aguilar...

Spring Training Game Thread #21: Arizona Diamondbacks @ Milwaukee Brewers

Despite recent struggles, the Brewers remain just 1.5 games back in the Cactus Cup race You know, sometimes walkoff losses happen in baseball. But the beautiful thing about the game is you get back to work the next day with a clean slate. The Cactus Crew (10-9-1) takes on the Diamondbacks (10-8) today in Maryvale. First pitch is at 3:05 p.m. CDT with Matt Garza getting the start for the Brewers. Scooter Gennett is back in the lineup again today, but he’s actually playing second base for a change. Lewis Brinson is getting some time in right. The game will be broadcast on both FS Wisconsin...

Jesus Aguilar homers again as Milwaukee Brewers beat Padres, 5-3

Jesus Aguilar homers again as Milwaukee Brewers beat Padres, 5-3

The slugging first baseman continues to make a strong case to make the Opening Day roster. After losing a pair of split-squad games Friday, the Brewers started a new winning streak with a 5-3 win over the San Diego Padres. Ryan Braun made his second appearance in a Cactus League game, and got the Brewers offense started early with an RBI double in the first inning to drive in Eric Thames. Matt Garza pitched into the third inning today, but ran into a bit of trouble allowing a single to former Brewer Luis Sardinas (who was caught stealing by Jett Bandy), two walks, and then an RBI single to...

Relax...spring training innings don’t go towards guaranteeing Garza’s contract. Matt Garza tries to enhance his a) chances to make the Brewers’ rotation, and/or b) his trade value as he takes the mound in Scottsdale as Milwaukee visits the Indians.

Mariners pull away late, defeat Milwaukee Brewers 6-2

Mariners pull away late, defeat Milwaukee Brewers 6-2

The chase for Cactus Cup is off to an inauspicious start. Box Score The Milwaukee Brewers beat the Reds in walk off fashion yesterday, and the club faced off against the Mariners today attempting to win their first back-to-back games of the spring. Unfortunately our local nine’s hopes were foiled as Seattle defeated the Brewers by a score of 6-2. Matt Garza got the start for the Brewers, his first appearance of the spring, and he fared relatively well. He worked around a leadoff single by Jarrod Dyson by getting three straight groundouts to make his first Cactus League inning a scoreless...

Matt Garza makes his first spring start as the Cactus Crew tries to get back to .500 After a walkoff win Wednesday against Cincinnati, the Brewers take another shot at getting back to .500 in Cactus League play today. This one probably isn’t as must-win as yesterday, but if the Brewers want to be considered serious contenders for the Cactus Cup, they need to start stringing a few wins together here. Today it’s Matt Garza making his first start of the spring, wrapping up one pass through what could be the rotation. Wisconsin native Scott Servais will send Ariel Miranda to the mound for...
