Keon Broxton, held out of the starting lineup for a second straight game, homered as a pinch-hitter Tuesday against the Pirates.

The Brewers played Jonathan Villar in center field tonight because they wanted to stack lefties against Ivan Nova. Broxton has been fine since rejoining the Brewers, hitting .250/.348/.525 in 40 at-bats. He'll continue to play center most days.

Keon Broxton went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Twins.

Broxton took Dietrich Enns deep for a solo shot in the second inning. He has gone yard in two of his last four games and is up to 16 dingers on the season. Despite this nice little bit of pop in the bat, Broxton is hitting just .222/.300/.437 in 102 games this season.
Aug 10 - 11:36 PM

Keon Broxton had a solo homer and an RBI double off the Twins' Ervin Santana in Monday's loss.

Broxton has started all seven games since returning from the minors and gone 6-for-22 with four walks and a couple of steals. With Lewis Brinson back in Triple-A, it certainly seems as through Broxton will be a lineup fixture.
Aug 8 - 12:47 AM

Keon Broxton singled in a run and walked in three plate appearances before being removed in a double-switch Thursday.

Broxton also robbed Jose Martinez of what might have been a homer with a fine jumping catch in center field. He's 3-for-9 with two walks in three games since being recalled to reclaim his spot as the Brewers' starting center fielder.
Aug 3 - 5:43 PM

Brewers recalled OF Keon Broxton from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

He's taking the spot of Kirk Nieuwenhuis, who was designated for assignment on Monday. Broxton is back after a brief detour in the minor leagues. He'll resume his role as Milwaukee's regular center fielder with Lewis Brinson coming off the bench. Before his demotion, Broxton was hitting .218 with 14 HR, 36 RBI and 17 steals over 293 at-bats for the Brew Crew.
Aug 1 - 4:35 PM

Brewers optioned OF Keon Broxton to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Broxton possesses a dazzling blend of power and speed, and has clubbed 14 home runs and swiped 17 bases this season, but he also owns a 124/27 K/BB ratio in 326 plate appearances and is mired in a 3-for-50 slump. The Brewers hope to get him back on track again before bringing him back for a potential pennant race.

Keon Broxton clubbed a two-run home run in a win over the Orioles on Wednesday.

He went deep off starter Jayson Aquino with Domingo Santana aboard in the fourth inning. Broxton was brutally bad for the first two months of the season before turning things around in June. His season line still looks shaky but he should be OK moving forward. He has a .239 batting average with 14 home runs, 47 runs and 35 RBI. He's swiped 15 bags this season after stealing 23 in 75 games last year.
Jul 5 - 11:47 PM

Keon Broxton is not in the Brewers' lineup Thursday against the Reds.

It's a routine day off for the center fielder, who has had a hot month offensively with seven homers and 16 RBI since June 1. Utility man Hernan Perez will spell Broxton in center field and bat sixth against Reds righty Homer Bailey.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Even with a slightly watered down lineup, the Brewers are among the top overall stacks of the day against Homer Bailey. His first start went about as poorly as possible, but Bailey's limited 2016 data doesn't look much better and he's likely to get hit around some more as he re-acclimates to the big leagues. Travis Shaw is among the top overall bats of the day (.285 ISO vs. RHP), as is Ryan Braun. If you're hunting for value, Jonathan Villar and Jesus Aguilar are under-priced on a few DFS outlets.

Keon Broxton clobbered another homer as part of a three-hit, three-RBI afternoon Sunday in the Brewers’ win over the Braves.

Broxton also stole his 13th base of the season. His home run was a 366-foot solo shot off Julio Teheran in the second inning. Broxton was struggling for a while but the threat of top prospect Lewis Brinson seems to have lit a fire under him. Seven of Broxton’s 13 homers this year have come over his last 15 games.
Jun 25 - 6:12 PM

Keon Broxton went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored during Saturday's loss to the Braves.

He singled to lead off the game, advanced to second on an infield single by Domingo Santana, stole third base and scored on a fielder's choice grounder. That was the only run his squad could manage in the ballgame. Broxton got off to a terrible start to the campaign and seemed destined for a bench role when top prospect Lewis Brinson was called to the majors, but his recent hot streak is likely going to enable him to keep his starting job when Ryan Braun comes off the disabled list soon. He has a .242 batting average with 12 home runs, 43 runs scored, 29 RBI and 12 stolen bases in 72 games.
Jun 24 - 8:43 PM

Keon Broxton slugged a solo homer, drew a walk, and scored two runs in Friday’s loss to the Braves.

Broxton has amassed six homers and 13 RBI over his last 13 games. The 27-year-old appeared vulnerable when top prospect Lewis Brinson was called up earlier this month, but the recent surge should buy him some time. Brinson will likely head back to Triple-A once Ryan Braun is activated from the disabled list.
Jun 23 - 11:31 PM

Keon Broxton drilled a two-run bomb to tie the game in the bottom of the 10th inning but his team lost to the Padres in 11 frames.

After Yangervis hit a two-run shot in the top of the 10th for the Padres, Broxton matched the feat off closer Brandon Mauer in the bottom of the inning. It was Broxton's only hit of the game. He has a .233 batting average with 11 homers and 27 RBI. He has 10 stolen bases as well.
Jun 17 - 9:07 PM

Keon Broxton hit a three-run homer Friday, giving him four homers in his last five starts.

Maybe it's a coincidence, but Broxton has taken his game up about three notches since the Brewers threatened his job by calling up Lewis Brinson. Whereas it looked like Brinson was going to get a real shot to take over in center after Ryan Braun returned, now it seems a lot more likely that he'll head back to Triple-A.
