Jimmy Nelson gave up three runs in six innings in the Brewers' 4-2 loss to the Cubs on Monday.

Nelson was at the mercy of Welington Castillo's bat, as Castillo knocked in all three runs on his line. Castillo knocked in one with an RBI single in the second, then belted a two-run home run in the fourth. Nelson ended the start having given up nine hits over six innings, striking out four and walking one. Despite the quality start, Matt Garza (oblique) is scheduled to return from the DL on Wednesday, which might push Nelson to the bullpen. Thus far in 2014, Nelson has made ten starts and holds a rookie-respectable 4.14 ERA.

Carlos Gomez (wrist) is not in the Brewers' starting lineup Monday afternoon against the Cubs.

Gomez suffered a minor left wrist injury in Sunday's series finale against the Giants. He's day-to-day.
Sep 1 - 11:39 AM

Brewers activated LHP Wei-Chung Wang from the 15-day disabled list.

Wang missed nearly two months with discomfort in his left shoulder. The 22-year-old Rule 5 Draft pick has struggled mightily this season at the major league level and probably won't see many high-leverage appearances down the stretch.
Sep 1 - 8:41 AM

Brewers activated RHP Matt Garza from the 15-day disabled list.

Garza will return to the Brewers' starting rotation on Wednesday at Wrigley Field after missing about a month with a left oblique strain. He was in a groove before the injury and should be a decent source of fantasy value down the stretch. The 30-year-old righty has a 3.58 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 104/43 K/BB ratio in 145 2/3 innings this season.
Sep 1 - 8:38 AM

Brewers recalled RHP Jimmy Nelson from High-A Brevard County.

Nelson will start for the Brewers on Monday at Wrigley Field but could be moved to the bullpen after that with Matt Garza (oblique) due back from the disabled list on Wednesday. Nelson is 2-5 with a 4.10 in nine starts this season as a rookie and makes for a risky fantasy streamer against the rejuvenated Cubs.
Sep 1 - 8:34 AM

Brewers recalled OF Logan Schafer to Triple-A Nashville.

Schafer will give the Brewers some outfield depth for the stretch run. He is a pretty good defender but has hit just .210/.280/.325 in 211 career major league games.
Sep 1 - 8:31 AM

Brewers purchased the contract of C Matt Pagnozzi from Triple-A Nashville.

Pagnozzi will serve as an emergency third catcher for the Brewers down the stretch. He was batting just .215/.298/.382 in 71 games this season at the Triple-A level.
Sep 1 - 8:29 AM

Brewers transferred INF Jeff Bianchi to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a roster spot for Matt Pagnozzi, who will join the Brewers as an emergency catcher. Bianchi remains out indefinitely with a right elbow strain.
Sep 1 - 8:27 AM

Carlos Gomez (wrist) is unlikely to return to the Brewers lineup on Monday.

Gomez was removed from Sunday's game against the Giants due to soreness in his left wrist. It appears as though he's being considered day-to-day, but there's still no clear timeframe for when he's expected to return to the Brewers lineup.
Aug 31 - 11:59 PM

Ryan Braun hit his 18th home run of the season in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

The homer was a solo shot that did little to cut into the Giants' lead. He missed a chance to do more damage when he grounded into a double play with runners on first and third base in the first inning. The outfielder is hitting .276/.325/.483 with 76 RBI on the season.
Aug 31 - 9:43 PM

Kyle Lohse was knocked around on Sunday, giving up seven runs over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Giants.

Lohse gave up nine hits on the day, including five extra-base hits. The loss was his fourth in his last five decisions, dropping him to 12-8 on the year. The right-hander still owns a strong 3.68 ERA despite the bumps in the road, and he'll look to improve on those numbers Friday against the Cardinals.
Aug 31 - 9:31 PM

Carlos Gomez was removed from the third inning of Sunday's game against the Giants due to a sore left wrist.

Gomez was replaced by Gerardo Parra in the third inning. It's unclear at the moment what he did to injure his wrist, and the severity of such injury. Expect him to return to the Brewers lineup in a day or two.
Aug 31 - 5:02 PM

Brewers acquired RHP Jonathan Broxton from the Reds in exchange for two players to be named later.

The deal was first reported by FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal and it's now official. Broxton is making $7 million this season and is owed $10 million next year if you include his $1 million buyout for 2016. He would seem to be an option to close for the Brew Crew next season if K-Rod isn't re-signed. The big reliever boasts a 1.86 ERA over 51 appearances this season but has struggled this month with a 5.23 mark.
Aug 31 - 1:34 PM

Matt Garza (oblique) has been cleared to rejoin the Brewers' rotation Wednesday versus the Cubs.

Garza, out since August 4 with a left oblique strain, threw all of his pitches in a successful simulated game Friday evening in San Francisco. Jimmy Nelson was optioned to the minors on Saturday afternoon and will return as a reliever when rosters expand, freeing up a rotation spot for Garza.
Aug 30 - 6:00 PM

Brewers optioned RHP Jimmy Nelson to High-A Brevard County.

It's a procedural move, as Nelson will be back to start on Monday against the Cubs. However, his time in the rotation may be coming to and end soon with Matt Garza (oblique) due back from the DL this week. The rookie right-hander is 2-5 with a 4.10 ERA in nine starts.
