BREWERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Brewers' Arcia dedicates first HR to parents

He's barely 22 years old, after all, so it was perfectly appropriate for Brewers shortstop Orlando Arcia to dedicate his first Major League home run to his mother and father.

Santana 'grateful' despite sparse playing time

Brewers outfielder Domingo Santana assured Friday that he is healthy and ready for any opportunity that comes his way. Those opportunities have been fleeting since Santana, the Brewers' Opening Day right fielder and leadoff hitter, returned from two-plus months on the disabled list for an elbow injury.

All Aboard the Keon Broxton Bandwagon

Sometimes things don’t work out. For example, this morning, I dropped my bagel when I was climbing the stairs. Had things gone according to plan, I would have not dropped my bagel when I was climbing the stairs. Unfortunate for me. Arguably unfortunate for the bagel. And then, sometimes, things do work out. For example, last Friday, I chatted a little bit about Keon Broxton. Then...

WATCH: Anthony Rizzo climbs dugout to make great catch

Last year, Chicago Cubs star first baseman Anthony Rizzo climbed the tarp to make an absurd play against the Milwaukee Brewers at Wrigley Field: Well, he just made a similar play against the Brewers (with Jason Hammel again on the mound for the Cubs), but this time he climbed the ledge over the tarp at Wrigley. This is insane: King of the Confines.https://t.co/adkwZD5lIB —...

Brewers rookies make Starbucks run in full uniform

Baseball has a long season. The toll this takes on players manifests in many ways, from ridiculously intricate handshake routines to a team adopting a rally mantis. And sometimes, when you’re staring down a day-night doubleheader, you need some caffeine. That’s the situation the Brewers found themselves in, and they didn’t want any clubhouse coffee. Rather, they apparently...

The Brewers, Clutch Hitting, And the Value of Luck

Is it good for a rebuilding club to be lucky, or unlucky? I’ve mused on the subject before, and I keep coming back to it because I don’t see a clear answer. On the one hand, a lucky team wins more games. On the other hand, well, an unlucky team loses more games. The former path brings more short-term joy; the latter, more long-term joy (theoretically). It’s a tough choice...

Matt Garza Has Started Getting Grounders

The continued presence of Matt Garza in the Brewers rotation seems to defy explanation. The club needs to pay him this year and next, but they have no playing-time obligation. He clearly has no trade value at this point — his ERA and DRA sit at 5.03 and 5.36, respectively — so why continue to start him when Josh Hader, Brent Suter, and a host of others sit in the minors? Shouldn’t...

Analyzing Garza’s Future with the Brewers

When Matt Garza signed with the Brewers before the 2014 season, the Brewers had to have been hoping that he would be a veteran anchor for a young and developing group of starting pitchers. Both Wily Peralta and Jimmy Nelson were already in the rotation, and Taylor Jungmann would join them the next year. In an ideal world, Garza would be providing solid, approximately league-average...

Milwaukee Brewers: Zach Davies keeps on rolling

Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Zach Davies has left his early 2016 struggles far, far behind. The 23-year-old right-hander delivered another quality start for the Brewers on Monday, going seven innings and allowing three runs against the Atlanta Braves. He began his night in ace-like form, taking care of the first three Braves batters on just six pitches. Davies ended up getting...
