Surprise! The Brewers signed Matt Garza. (UPDATE: Well, not yet)

Rosenthal: Brewers Offered Extension To Segura

When Carlos Gomez signed his extension in mid-March, Doug Melvin spoke about the importance of locking up his young “up-the-middle” starters. Gomez joined Jonathan Lucroy in being signed through 2016. Now, it looks like the Brewers may be looking to keep another young star in… [More]

Brewers activate Jeff Bianchi, send Khris Davis down

Brewers bringing back Thirty Pitches of Terror

While the Brewers’ bullpen has stabilized a bit recently, it’s never a bad idea to add an insurance policy. Well, maybe almost never, depending on your opinion of the Brewers bringing Francisco Rodriguez back. The Brewers announced after Wednesday night’s walkoff win that they were… [More]
