In his first career start leading off, Ryan Braun hit two singles against the Pirates.

Braun finished the game 2-for-3. While the singles are nice, they marked a continuation of an odd start for Braun. After smacking 30 doubles and 19 home runs last season, Braun has yet to notch his first extra-base hit of the 2015 season. The power should come eventually, but it should be remembered that the former MVP underwent experimental thumb surgery in October.

Kyle Lohse surrendered six earned runs over six innings in Saturday's loss to the Pirates.

In Lohse's first two starts of the year, he allowed eight runs and four runs. Things didn't look much better on Saturday. He allowed three runs in the first inning off of a pair of RBI singles, then gave up a three-run bomb to Starling Marte in the fifth. His ERA for the season now sits at 10.34. The veteran right-hander is best left off fantasy rosters until these numbers settle. He'll try to get that ERA into single digits when he faces the Reds in his next outing.

Ryan Braun is serving as the Brewers leadoff hitter for the first time in his career on Saturday.

Braun has struggled in the early going, slashing just .226/.250/.226, so perhaps the move was made to try to get him going. With Carlos Gomez sidelined, the Brewers are in desperate need of a spark atop their lineup.

Gerardo Parra went 1-for-2 and drove home a pair of runs in a losing effort against the Pirates on Friday.

Parra plated the Brewers first run with a ground ball in the second inning, then doubled home Khris Davis in the sixth. He is getting a chance to serve as the Brewers everyday center fielder with Carlos Gomez on the disabled list, and appears to be making the most of his opportunity early on.
Apr 17 - 10:07 PM

Jimmy Nelson pitched decently in a losing effort against the Pirates on Friday, allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits over his five innings of work.

Nelson punched out three on the night and didn't walk a batter. He was lifted in the fifth inning for a pinch hitter after throwing only 73 pitches. He was also victimized by poor defense, as a passed ball by Jonathan Lucroy contributed to the Pirates scoring. He'll carry a 1.50 ERA and 12/2 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's matchup against the Reds.
Apr 17 - 10:05 PM

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Friday that while it's still too early to tell definitively, Carlos Gomez (hamstring) could return in two-to-three weeks.

Gomez is dealing with a strained right hamstring, and it seems like he'll require more than just a minimum stint on the disabled list. Gerardo Parra will function as the team's primary center fielder in his absence and is worth a look in deeper mixed leagues.
Apr 17 - 6:13 PM

Jim Henderson (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Brevard County on Friday.

Henderson showed diminished velocity in spring training as he worked his way back from surgery to repair a torn right labrum. The Brewers will give him plenty of rehab outings before activating him.
Apr 17 - 10:54 AM

Brewers recalled 1B/OF Jason Rogers from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

He's taking the roster spot of the injured Carlos Gomez (hamstring). Rogers was off to a .360/.429/.640 start at Colorado Springs and could see a little playing time against left-handers.
Apr 17 - 10:22 AM

Brewers placed OF Carlos Gomez on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 16, with a right hamstring strain.

Gomez has been given a cortisone shot and will be re-evaluated next week before the Brewers determine whether he might be out longer than 15 days. They'll make a corresponding roster move prior to Friday's game, with Jason Rogers, Shane Peterson and Elian Herrera the most likely candidates for a promotion. Gerardo Parra will take over as the Brewers' center fielder while Gomez is out. Jean Segura moved up to replace Gomez in the leadoff spot Thursday, although Scooter Gennett is also a candidate to see time there if he starts swinging the bat better.

Brewers assistant general manager Gordon Ash said Thursday that Carlos Gomez (hamstring) will be placed on the disabled list.

The All-Star outfielder is dealing with a small tear in his right hamstring and it's unclear at the moment how long he will be sidelined. He also received a cortisone shot on Thursday. Gerardo Parra will see time in center field in his absence.
Apr 16 - 7:02 PM

Mike Fiers allowed two earned runs over 5 2/3 innings Thursday in a loss to the Cardinals.

Fiers was in control until the bottom of the sixth inning, when Matt Holliday hit an RBI single and Mark Reynolds crushed an RBI double. St. Louis then went on to score two more runs on the Milwaukee bullpen. Fiers isn't showing very good velocity in the early going this season -- his fastball was 86-88 mph Thursday -- and he'll carry a rough 5.91 ERA into his next start at home against the Reds.
Apr 16 - 4:49 PM

Aramis Ramirez finished 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in the Brewers' loss to the Cardinals on Thursday.

The entire Milwaukee lineup struggled in the matinee at Busch Stadium. Ramirez is off to an especially bad start this year, hitting just .171 with a .400 OPS in nine games played. The 36-year-old announced last month that this will likely be his final season.
Apr 16 - 4:43 PM

Carlos Gomez (hamstring) is not in the Brewers' starting lineup Thursday versus the Cardinals.

No surprise after Gomez felt a pull in his right hamstring Wednesday night. If he suffered a strain, a trip to the disabled list is probably inevitable. He's headed back to Milwaukee for an examination by team doctors. Gerardo Parra is starting in center field on Thursday afternoon against Cardinals right-hander John Lackey and could be asked to play there regularly over the next couple of weeks. Jean Segura is leading off.
Apr 16 - 11:30 AM

Carlos Gomez exited Wednesday's loss to the Cardinals with a right hamstring injury.

Gomez said he felt a pull in the hamstring and let up while running down the first base line in the ninth inning. He's already been ruled out for Thursday's matinee, and the Brewers will know more about his availability going forward depending on how he feels Thursday.
Apr 15 - 11:43 PM

Wily Peralta took the loss on Wednesday, yielding four runs on 10 hits over five innings against the Cardinals.

The Cardinals didn't hit Peralta particularly hard, but they were consistently making contact. Along with the 10 hits, Peralta walked one and struck out only one on the evening. The right-hander, who performed well in 32 starts last year, was solid in his first start of the season and will look to get back on track in his next start at home against the Reds.
