Injury bug bites Brewers again, Izturis to DL

There’s just something about West coast games this year. While the Brewers were cruising to a relatively easy 7-1 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday night, they picked up another injury in the infield. Shortstop Cesar Izturis, who was enjoying a rare good offensive game… [More]

Brewers buy themselves some time, recall McClendon

When Mike McClendon was sent down for Vinnie Chulk at the end of April, smart money was on McClendon returning to the big leagues before long. Thanks to Marco Estrada landing on the 15-day disabled list with a quad strain, McClendon is getting the call… [More]

Brewers claim Ransom on waivers, option Maysonet

The shortstop carousel post-Alex Gonzalez continues for the Brewers, who claimed Cody Ransom off waivers from the Arizona Diamondbacks Wednesday. Edwin Maysonet was optioned back to Nashville to make room on the 25-man roster, and Gonzalez was transferred to the 60-day DL to make room… [More]

Brewers replace Chulk with Perez, Conrad with Gomez

Given recent performance, this probably qualifies as the least surprising news in awhile. #Brewers RHP Vinnie Chulk has been designated for assignment. The team has selected the contract of LHP Juan Perez from Triple-A Nashville. — Mike Vassallo (@MikeVassallo13) May 19, 2012 Chulk was called… [More]

Just how good was Zack Greinke’s start?

The Brewers came up short of a win again on Wednesday, but it wasn’t by any fault of Zack Greinke’s. By the numbers, it’s not crazy to say that Milwaukee not only wasted Greinke’s best start as a Brewer, but possibly one of the best… [More]

Brewers give extensions to Doug Melvin, Ron Roenicke

Things have been a bit tumultuous in Brewer Land over the past week or two, but owner Mark Attanasio provided a bit of long-term certainty on Tuesday, inking Doug Melvin and Ron Roenicke to contract extensions. Melvin will now be under contract through the 2015… [More]

Brewers in need of fresh arms, add Chulk

The Brewers are just two games into a 9-game, 10-day road trip, but already bullpen reinforcements are needed. After dropping the first two games in St. Louis by a combined score of 20-4 and seeing the bullpen cover 8 of 16 innings, a fresh arm… [More]

Brewers lose Narveson for rest of season

Initial fears about Chris Narveson’s torn rotator cuff have proved to be true — the Brewers’ left-hander needs surgery and will miss the rest of the 2012 season. News of Narveson’s injury broke last Friday, but the fate of his season was up in the… [More]

Presented Without Comment: Todd Tichenor and Brian Gorman

All graphs are courtesy Brooks Baseball, and are from catcher’s perspective (RHB stand to the left, LHB to the right): Mat Gamel was called out at first base by Brian Gorman to lead off the 9th inning: (h/t @ABayer2)

Chris Narveson lands on DL with torn rotator cuff

This probably isn’t the way Chris Narveson wanted to begin the 2012 season. In his first two starts, the lefthander allowed 8 runs (7 earned) in just 9 innings, walked 4 and only struck out 5. Considering Narveson was never much of a swing-and-miss guy… [More]
