Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-4 and swiped his first base of the season in Wednesday's loss to the Giants.
Lucroy was one of the few bright spots in the Brewers offense on a day where they were shutout by Jake Peavy and company. The hard-hitting backstop is now hitting .257/.317/.350 with three homers and 22 RBI in 61 games on the season.
Mike Fiers logged a quality start in Wednesday's loss to the Giants, allowing only two runs on four hits over six-plus frames.
The right-hander racked up five strikeouts on the afternoon while walking one. The two teams had been locked in a scoreless tie heading into the seventh inning, where Fiers allowed the first two men to reach before turning the game over to the bullpen, who subsequently allowed the two runners to score. A popular name in trade rumblings, Fiers will take on the Padres at home on Monday if he remains a Brewer through the deadline.
Matt Holliday was removed from Wednesday's game against the Reds due to a strained right quadriceps.
It's an injury that continues to bother the veteran outfielder and could continue to throughout the remainder of the season. He will be re-evaluated on Thursday, but a trip back to the disabled list is certainly a possibility.
Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Braves would receive Hector Olivera from the Dodgers as part of the rumored three-team deal with the Marlins.
The Braves would send Jim Johnson and Alex Wood to the Braves and in return acquire Michael Morse, a competitive balance draft pick along with Olivera.
Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that Wilmer Flores will head to the Brewers with Zack Wheeler in exchange for outfielder Carlos Gomez.
It's unclear if he'll be utilized at shortstop for the Mets, or if he'll take over their vacancy at third base. The 23-year-old was hitting .249/.281/.379 with 10 homers and 40 RBI in 92 games with the Mets this season. It's a nice haul for the Brewers in exchange for a year-plus of Gomez.
According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, Zack Wheeler will head to the Brewers as part of the trade to acquire Carlos Gomez.
The 25-year-old right-hander is in the process of recovering from Tommy John surgery and isn't expected to return until midway through the 2016 season. He owns a career 3.50 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 275/125 K/BB ratio over 285 1/3 big league innings.
Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Mets have agreed to a deal with the Brewers to acquire Carlos Gomez.
As rumored, Zack Wheeler and Wilmer Flores will be headed back to Milwaukee in the trade. The deal is done pending physicals, so don't expect an official announcement to take place until Thursday. Gomez returns to the organization where he began his big league career as a 21-year-old in 2007.
Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that Alex Wood and Jim Johnson could be on their way to the Dodgers as part of a three team deal with the Marlins.
The Braves would be receiving at least Michael Morse and a compensation pick from the Marlins in the deal that would send Mat Latos to the Dodgers. This one appears to be gaining traction and a deal could be finalized before the night is through.
