How Christian Yelich is sustaining his power surge

Somehow, some way, Yelich is still getting better. Much has been made of Christian Yelich’s power surge since he joined the Brewers. The latest buzz around Yelich comes after he once again had a superhuman night at the plate, belting three home runs on Monday night as the Brewers Yelich beat the Cardinals 10-7. He would follow that up by launching another bomb in Tuesday night’s contest. Cardinals skipper Mike Shildt said he’s never seen anything like what Yelich is doing. Cardinals manager Mike Shildt on Christian Yelich, who has homered in his last six games with an AB against St....

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 continue to have discussions with Craig Kimbrel’s agent, per report

With the loss of Knebel for the year, and uncertainty around Jeffress, is Kimbrel becoming a must sign? In the first game of 162, Josh Hader was utilized for a two-inning save. It would be a surprise to see him again before game four of the series with the Cardinals as manager Craig Counsell is not apt to over pitch his greatest bullpen weapon. While Matt Albers and Chase Anderson pitched reasonably well in the second game of the season, the rest of the bullpen failed in shutting down the Cardinals’ offense and most especially, Paul Goldschmidt. Every Brewers’ fan knows at this point...

Report: Brewers to sign reliever Alex Wilson

The Brewers are reportedly signing a veteran reliever who used to pitch for the Boston Red Sox — just not the one everyone’s been talking about In each of the past three years, Brewers general manager David Stearns has added a bullpen piece in the final week of spring training after seeing them cut loose by a different team.

Corbin Burnes, Brandon Woodruff, Freddy Peralta all make Brewers rotation, Chase Anderson to bullpen

A week before Opening Day, Craig Counsell says all three young arms will be in the starting rotation It felt like for much of the spring, at least one of Corbin Burnes, Brandon Woodruff or Freddy Peralta would be the odd man out in the Milwaukee Brewers’ starting rotation picture. After all, Zach Davies and Chase Anderson were veterans of the rotation, and knowing how much general manager David Stearns values roster flexibility and using options, it felt like at least one of the three would find themselves in San Antonio to stay stretched out as a starter. Then those three proceeded to...
