Spring Training Game Thread #28: Milwaukee Brewers @ Kansas City Royals

It’s the last road game of spring training for the Brewers. The spring training road schedule for the Brewers ends today as they play their final road game of the spring in Arizona. Four games remain in Arizona, before two games at Miller Park to finish up the spring. It’s the second to last start of the spring for Wily Peralta tonight. He’s only made two starts for the Brewers this spring, but also got some work in during the WBC. In his last start for the Brewers, he pitched five innings against the Royals, allowing two runs on three hits and one walk, with three...

Milwaukee Brewers Roster Updates: Hiram Burgos cut, Manny Pina and Jhan Marinez make the team

Milwaukee Brewers Roster Updates: Hiram Burgos cut, Manny Pina and Jhan Marinez make the team

33 players remain in big league camp. The Milwaukee Brewers’ Opening Day roster continues to take shape, as the club has announced a series of roster updates over the past few days. First off, catcher Manny Pina and righty Jhan Marinez have been informed that they will make the team and head to Milwaukee when camp breaks. Earlier today, the club also notified the masses via Twitter that right-hander Hiram Burgos was reassigned to minor league camp, leaving 33 players (16 pitchers, 4 catchers, 9 infielders, and 4 outfielders) still in the running for the final 25 man roster. Both Pina and...

Milwaukee Brewers Drop Third Straight, Lose to Reds 12-11

Milwaukee Brewers Drop Third Straight, Lose to Reds 12-11

Cincinnati walked off in the bottom of the ninth. Box Score The Milwaukee Brewers must’ve gotten tired of all the winning they were doing lately, because they dropped their third straight game in a wild affair today with the Reds. Tommy Milone got the start for the Brewers, but fared only slightly better than Junior Guerra did yesterday. Milone was greeted rudely when Zack Cosart hit his first pitch of the game over the fence and wound up giving up four runs in the first inning. He would last only 3.1 innings, giving up a total of seven earned runs with two walks and three strikeouts....

Lefty Tommy Milone takes the hill, still trying to steal a spot in the Brewers’ rotation The Cactus Crew looks to shake off a shaky pitching performance yesterday with a showdown with division rival Cincinnati. Thursday’s loss was a costly one in more ways than one. Not only did Junior Guerra get rocked, but the Brewers are now 1.5 games behind Seattle for the Cactus Cup, but would also have to jump over three additional teams in the standings. Lefty Tommy Milone gets the start for Milwaukee today. Sal Romano will get the ball first for the Reds. Today's lineup against the @Reds in...

2017 NL Central Preview: Cincinnati Reds

2017 NL Central Preview: Cincinnati Reds

The Reds have been one of the league’s worst-performing teams over the past two years, and it looks like it might continue for a third. Heading into last season, the NL Central had two pretty clear tiers -- the Milwaukee Brewers and Cincinnati Reds, and then everyone else. But, you know, not in the good way for the Brewers and Reds. Last season was a race to the bottom for both teams, trying to out-tank-rebuild the other. In that regard, the Reds won, finishing in last in the division with a 68-94 record. The tear-down continued in the offseason, with Dan Straily (3.76 ERA/4.88 FIP, 113...

The Platoon You Wish Existed

On February 2nd, first baseman Jesus Aguilar became a member of the Milwaukee Brewers, after being claimed off of waivers from the Cleveland Indians. Aguilar, a 26-year-old right-handed hitter, has only appeared in 35 Major League games, totaling 64 plate appearances. In an extremely small sample size, the Venezuelan slashed .172/.234/.190 during that three year […]

Milwaukee ace implodes, Brewers fall to Oakland 15-5

Milwaukee ace implodes, Brewers fall to Oakland 15-5

Well, Junior Guerra fans — looking at you, Kyle — let’s hope today was a fine tuning prior to opening day. The #2017BrewersAce looked like anything BUT an ace as he gave up 12 runs (7 earned) in only 3.2 innings against the Oakland Athletics. The start brings Guerra’s spring ERA up to 5.93 in 5 games. The game started well enough, with Guerra only allowing a run on sac fly. Then the second inning rolled by and Guerra fell to pieces, allowing home runs to Yonder Alonso and Max Schrock — that doesn’t seem like a real name, and I’m pretty sure he’s not even a real person —...

Milwaukee Brewers catcher battle clears as Manny Pina, Jett Bandy break camp

The three-man catcher battle in the Milwaukee Brewers camp is finally coming into focus. Unfortunately, that focus is the result of an injury sustained by Andrew Susac, effectively knocking him clear out of contention. While fellow-catcher Manny Pina‘s chances to make the team already seemed good, as he entered camp with the most experience with […] The post Milwaukee Brewers catcher battle clears as Manny Pina, Jett Bandy break camp appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

Milwaukee Brewers prospect Devin Williams needs Tommy John surgery

Disappointing news for one of Milwaukee’s more promising young arms. The Milwaukee Brewers have been relatively fortunate on the injury front thus far this spring. Outside of a trapezius issue for Andrew Susac, no projected regular starters or pitchers have dealt with a significant malady during camp this year. Unfortunately, the club received some grim news regarding one of their more notable pitching prospects: Devin Williams is one of my favorite sleeper prospects in deep @Brewers system. Love the upside but he'll miss 2017 b/c he needs TJ surgery.— Jim Callis (@jimcallisMLB) March...

Milwaukee Brewers’ Opening Day roster shapes up as camp trims down

With less than two weeks before Opening Day, the Milwaukee Brewers are now down to their toughest decisions this spring. In a recent round of cuts from spring camp, the team parted ways with Joba Chamberlain, releasing the 10-year veteran on Wednesday. In camp with the Brewers, Chamberlain pitched eight innings but despite logging a moderate […] The post Milwaukee Brewers’ Opening Day roster shapes up as camp trims down appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

2017 NL Central Preview: Pittsburgh Pirates

2017 NL Central Preview: Pittsburgh Pirates

The Bucs are look to rebound from disappointing 2016 campaign. The Pittsburgh Pirates expected to contend for postseason play in 2016, perhaps for a division crown and certainly for a Wild Card slot. Instead, they finished at 78-83, a full 25 games behind the first place Chicago Cubs, and 8.5 games out of the Wild Card. Returning manager Clint Hurdle’s team was third in the NL Central, closer to the fourth place Milwaukee Brewers (5.5 games ahead) than to the second place St. Louis Cardinals (7.5 behind). There were many reasons for the poor showing, of course - you don’t drop ten games...

Milwaukee Brewers ace Junior Guerra reportedly a hot commodity on trade market

Milwaukee Brewers ace Junior Guerra reportedly a hot commodity on trade market

The Brewers held on to Guerra despite what was reportedly widespread interest. Can the 32 year old succeed again in 2017? Earlier this week, the Milwaukee Brewers officially designated Junior Guerra as their starting pitcher on Opening Day. Guerra came into camp as one of just two starters (along with Zach Davies) that were guaranteed a spot in Milwaukee’s rotation to begin the season, and the Opening Day assignment serves as a further vote of confidence in the right-hander after an unprecedented breakout rookie season at age 31 last year. Junior claimed the title of #2016BrewersAce on...

Jesus Aguilar homers again, but Milwaukee Brewers can’t climb over Giants

Jesus Aguilar homers again, but Milwaukee Brewers can’t climb over Giants

The Brewers fumbled away the lead as San Francisco rallied late for a 6-4 win. The Brewers knocked around Matt Cain early and often, but it wasn’t enough to put away the Giants as San Francisco crawled back for a 6-4 victory Wednesday at Maryvale Baseball Park. Jesus Aguilar’s incredible spring continued, as he homered for the fifth time to increase his Cactus League-leading 1.407 OPS. After going 2-for-3, he was replaced by Ryan Aguilar (no relation, probably), who singled in his first major league at bat of the spring. Cain allowed four runs on seven hits, including Aguilar’s home...

Milwaukee Brewers release Joba Chamberlain, send down Michael Blazek in 4th round of cuts

Yadiel Rivera and Michael Reed are also included in the latest round of cuts, but seem to be taking it better than Blazek. Up to this point, the cuts the Brewers have made from spring training have been pretty predictable -- top prospects sent to minor league camp for more regular at-bats or minor league starting pitchers who needed innings to stretch out in time for their season openers. With just a couple weeks left in camp, though, the interesting roster decisions are starting to come in. Today, the Brewers optioned infielder Yadiel Rivera, outfielder Michael Reed and reliever Michael...

Milwaukee Brewers Camp Battles: Catcher Update

One player appears to be separating himself from the rest. With most of the spots in the starting lineup already filled in to start spring training, the battle for the two catching jobs was the only real open competition among Milwaukee Brewers’ position players. Three players came into camp to challenge for the two open slots, and now with less than two weeks until Opening Day let’s take a look at how that contest is shaking out: Jett Bandy From all indications, the organization is pretty high on Bandy, who was acquired in the Martin Maldonado-Andrew Gagnon swap with the Angels over...
