Eric Thames departed Saturday's game against the Cardinals after fouling a ball off his right foot.

It's hard to be unluckier with foul tips than Thames has been lately, as this is the fourth time he's fouled a ball off the same foot. He's avoided any broken bones to this point but will likely be sent for X-rays.

Eric Thames (foot) is back in the Brewers' lineup Friday.

Thames sat out Thursday after fouling a ball off his foot Wednesday, but he's feeling well enough to give it a go in this one. He's at first base and batting leadoff versus John Gant and the Cardinals.

Eric Thames left Wednesday's game against the Reds after fouling a ball off of his foot in the eighth inning.

Thames wears a protector shield in that area, but it missed the protector shield and went right off of his foot. Eric Sogard replaced Thames. We should have word after the game as to the severity of the injury.

Eric Thames is not in Saturday's lineup against the Marlins.

Thames was hit in the right hand by a pitch on Friday, but there was no fractures and his absence Saturday is more about lefty Adam Conley on the mound for Miami. Jesus Aguilar will start at first base and bat fifth.

Eric Thames went 1-for-3 and hit a two-run dinger in a win over the Pirates on Wednesday.

He blasted the home run as starter Tyler Glasnow imploded in the third inning. Thames started the season like gangbusters but has cooled significantly since then. Overall he has a .240/.350/.519 slash line with 30 home runs, 58 RBI and 77 runs scored as the Brewers' two-hole hitter this year.

Both hits came off of Gerrit Cole, as Thames is now 4-for-6 in his chances against the Pirates' ace. Thames is now up to 29 home runs on the season but somehow has driven in just 56 runs.

Eric Thames is not in the Brewers' starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Cubs.

Thames has been mired in an extended slump, slashing just .181/.261/.398 with three homers, eight RBI and a 30/8 K/BB ratio over his last 26 games. Jesus Aguilar is starting in his place at first base and batting fifth for the Brewers against Mike Montgomery and the Cubs on Saturday.

Eric Thames went 1-for-3 with a double and a run scored Friday against the Cubs.

Thames was back at first base and the leadoff spot after coming off the bench in the previous two games. The 30-year-old has faded badly since a hot start to the season and could be at risk for losing more playing time moving forward.
