Carlos Gomez headed to the DL

Carlos Gomez – Photo Credit – Matthew D. Britt The Milwaukee Brewers are currently 2-8. Last place in the National League Central. While this is not how last season started, it is certainly how it ended. Last season, they held a comfortable division lead with a 73-58 record in August before faltering with a 9-22 mark through the rest of August and September. During that 31-game...

Milwaukee Brewers playing like it’s still September 2014

The horrific month of September 2014 was one Brewers fans were hoping to put behind them and never think about again. Unfortunately, the 2015 Brewers are playing like it’s still September. In particular, the offense is simply hopeless. The lineup that’s supposedly built for power has amassed a league-worst three home runs, and the team batting average sits at a depressing .223...

Hamstring strain sends Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez to DL

MILWAUKEE (AP) All-Star outfielder Carlos Gomez has been placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Milwaukee Brewers because of a strained right hamstring. The move was retroactive to Thursday. The Brewers held off on a roster decision until Friday, when utility man Jason Rogers was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs. The Brewers were starting a three-game series Friday in...

Brewers Boosting Doubters Early

Before the season started, there was a lot of fiery talk from the Brewers brass.  They were going to build on their “150 days” of first-place fortitude, dadgummit, they were going to use the disappointment of 2014’s conclusion to figure things out successfully in 2015.  And hopefully they’d have a good start to the season again. D’oh. After losing heartlessly 4-0 to the...

Jean Segura’s hot start is encouraging

There’s not much going right for the Brewers in the young season and therefore not much for Brewers fans to celebrate. One bright spot, though, is the also young Jean Segura’s hot start. After experiencing the worst year of his personal and professional life Segura is storming back. Last year he hit .246/.289/.326. As of today, Milwaukee’s shortstop is hitting .333/.379/.529...

Milwaukee Brewers: First week observations

Ryan Braun and the Brewers have started off the 2015 season cold. Here are a few observations for the Milwaukee Brewers (2-5) first week of the 2015 MLB season: 1.  Hitting has not gone well. For a team that was fifth in the National League last season in OPS, the Brewers find themselves currently in 11th while scoring the fourth fewest runs. Hitting was supposed to be the strength...

What could a Milwaukee Brewers fire sale look like?

This is not an overreaction piece. This is a reality piece. Even before the Milwaukee Brewers began the season 1-5, my predictions had them finishing fourth in the NL Central. Their starting offense is above average when its clicking, but there’s absolutely no depth. The same can be said for the starting rotation and bullpen. The Brewers have a chance to be really bad in 2015,...

Game 6: Pirates 10 Brewers 2

There was a brief moment in which I was sure this game was headed in the opposite direction. After Casey Sadler mostly cruised through the Brewers’ lineup on the first pass, he gave up a hard-hit double to Hector Gomez in the eight spot. When Carlos Gomez came up shortly after, Sadler barely got a 91 mph sinker past him on the first pitch of the at-bat, with Gomez swinging for...

Milwaukee Brewers: Ugly start to say the least

While a baseball season is a marathon, not a sprint, it’s always in a team’s best interest to not start a campaign looking pathetic. But pathetic is unfortunately a very apt term for how the Milwaukee Brewers have played in their first four games of the season. The Brewers are 0-4 and have been outgunned and outmatched at every turn. Almost everything about the team just stinks...

Fireworks went off during Carlos Gomez’s first plate appearance

During Wednesday’s Rockies-Brewers game at Miller Park, Carlos Gomez’s plate appearance in the bottom of the first inning was interrupted after two pitches by an unlikely source – fireworks. Yeah, that’s the last thing you expect when you’re in the box getting ready to take some hacks. Those fireworks weren’t a sign of things to come for Milwaukee, however. Gomez walked...

WATCH: Fireworks go off during Gomez's at-bat

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez was concentrating hard on the task at hand. Prepare to hit the 90-plus pitch coming his way from Colorado Rockies pitcher Eddie Butler. And then… Whoever had the bright idea or made the ridiculous mistake to set off fireworks in the middle of an at-bat is probably getting a talk to right now. For Gomez, he looked pretty calm after...

Braun again out of Brewers lineup

MILWAUKEE (AP) Ryan Braun was held out of the Milwaukee Brewers' starting lineup for the second straight game while recovering from a strain in his right side. He took batting practice Wednesday night before the game against Colorado but felt some discomfort, Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke said. The Brewers are off Thursday, which played a role in the decision to keep him out of...

Jean Segura Takes A Pitch To The Face, Stays In The Game

Well, it certainly didn’t take very long for the first scary hit-by-pitch of the 2015 MLB season. The Brewers’ Jean Segura was struck in the face by a fifth inning changeup from Rockies pitcher Jordan Lyles last night in Milwaukee, sending him to the dirt for a few very tense moments.

How Will Jimmy Nelson Fare In 2015?

When the Milwaukee Brewers sent impending free agent and Opening Day starter for the previous 5 seasons in Yovani Gallardo to the Texas Rangers, the Brewers were left without an ace. Gallardo was not near ace level but was passable. Kyle Lohse took the reins to lead the Brewers rotation yesterday and proceeded to get rocked. Lohse went 3.1 innings and allowed 10 hits on 8 runs...

If Jonathan Lucroy Never Struck Out Again

Milwaukee’s Jonathan Lucroy has distinguished himself in recent years as one of the major leagues’ best players. Not only, for example, did he rank among the top-ten hitters by WAR last year, but also added the third-most runs by way of catcher framing according to the methodology used by Matthew Carruth at StatCorner — which […]

Brewers’ Jonathan Lucroy Swings Flaming Bat For MLB Promotion (Photo)

We’ve heard of swinging a hot bat, but Jonathan Lucroy takes it to another level. The Milwaukee Brewers catcher was out taking batting-practice swings this week when his bat, possibly due to the friction of the ball against the wood caused by all his stinging line drives, burst into flames. A photographer was thankfully able to capture the moment before...
