Jhoulys Chacin rattled off six shutout innings during an 8-0 victory over the Marlins on Friday.

He scattered four singles and three walks while notching five strikeouts in the gem outing. It was his first win in a Brewers uniform. He will take a 4.18 ERA and 1.73 WHIP into a much tougher start against the Cubs at Wrigley Field on Thursday.

Ryan Braun went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer and two runs scored in Friday's thumping of the Marlins.

His blast off Trevor Richards with Christian Yelich along for the ride broke the game open in the fourth inning. Braun has been battling a calf injury lately but this was his second game in a row with a longball. He has a lowly .230 batting average that is sure to rise, along with five home runs and 13 RBI.

Travis Shaw went 3-for-4 and drilled a solo home run in a win over the Marlins on Friday.

He took starter Trevor Richards deep in the Brewers' five-run fourth inning. He added an RBI single in his next at-bat and also doubled in the ballgame. Shaw got off to a slow start this year but has picked up the pace of late. He has a .291 batting average with three home runs and nine RBI.

Brewers' manager Craig Counsell announced late Friday that X-rays came back negative on the injured ankle of Orlando Arcia.

Arcia rolled his ankle while trying to get back to first base during the eighth inning of Friday's game against the Marlins. It sounds like he was able to avoid any significant injury and should return to the lineup in a day or two.

Orlando Arcia was removed from Friday's game against the Marlins with an apparent ankle injury.

Arcia appeared to roll his ankle while trying to get back to first base after his single in the eighth inning. He had to be helped off of the field. Arcia will presumably head for imaging to see if there's any structural damage, expect an update from the team either late Friday or early Saturday.

Ryan Braun (calf) is back in the Brewers' lineup Friday.

It's Braun's first start since Tuesday, although he did come off the bench to belt a pinch-hit, three-run home run Thursday. He's in left field and batting third against Trevor Richards and the Marlins on Friday.
Apr 20 - 4:56 PM

Manny Pina (calf) ran the bases prior to Friday's game.

Pina could return as soon as Tuesday when he's first eligible. He's been out since mid-April with a right calf strain.
Apr 20 - 4:54 PM

Brewers RHP prospect Corbin Burnes struck out nine over 6 1/3 scoreless innings in his start on Thursday for Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Burnes allowed just three hits, and he walked one. A fourth-round pick in 2016 out of St. Mary's, Burnes has seen his stock elevate quickly thanks to his three above-average pitches -- and a solid fourth as well -- and his ability to locate them where he wants to. The 23-year-old looks like he's close to ready for big-league action, and he could be starting games for Milwaukee by the end of the season.
Apr 20 - 1:14 PM

Lorenzo Cain went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a homer, two RBI and four runs scored as the Brewers thumped the Marlins 12-3 on Thursday.

Cain ripped a Dillon Peters pitch over the left field wall in the fifth inning, his second homer of the year. He added an RBI double in the sixth, and also had another double and a walk in the game. The good performance raised his average back up to over .300, leaving his line at .303/.390/.485 through 18 games. He's also stolen four bases, ranking among the league leaders in the category. The reunion has gone well thus far.
Apr 20 - 12:55 AM

Jesus Aguilar went 3-for-5 with three RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Marlins.

Aguilar had an RBI double in the fifth inning before knocking a two-run single in the sixth. He also had another double in the contest. The 27-year-old has proven a very productive platoon hitter, playing primarily against lefties, and he's hitting .414/.485/.552 in 29 at-bats this year.
Apr 20 - 12:36 AM

Ryan Braun (calf) hit a pinch-hit, three-run home run in Thursday's win over the Marlins.

Braun said before the game that he hoped his calf was well enough that he could play Friday, and he found his way into Thursday's game at a pivotal point in the sixth inning. He certainly seemed well enough, ripping a Junichi Tazawa offering over the left-center field wall for the three-run shot. It was also his 1,000th career RBI. Assuming no setbacks, Braun should be back in the lineup Friday. He's hitting .214/.250/.464 on the year.
Apr 20 - 12:31 AM

Chase Anderson allowed three runs over 5 1/3 innings in a win over the Marlins on Thursday.

Anderson wasn't at the top of his game, serving up a pair of homers among his five hits allowed, but he was good enough on a day when the Brewers provided him 12 runs of support. The win was his second in a row to improve him to 2-1 through five starts, and he owns a 3.25 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in 27 2/3 innings. An interleague start with the Royals awaits Anderson on Wednesday.
Apr 20 - 12:13 AM

Brewers designated RHP Alec Asher for assignment.

The Brewers had to clear a spot on their 40-man roster for Tyler Saladino, who was just acquired in a trade with the White Sox. Asher owns a 3.00 ERA in one start for Triple-A Colorado Springs this year. The Brewers could retain Asher and stash him in the minors if he clears waivers.
Apr 19 - 8:28 PM

Brewers acquired INF Tyler Saladino from the White Sox for cash considerations.

The White Sox traded him to make room for Trayce Thompson, who was acquired in a trade with Oakland on Thursday. Saladino will begin his Brewers' tenure with Triple-A Colorado Springs. He's only logged eight at-bats at the major league level this year.
Apr 19 - 8:27 PM

Ryan Braun (calf) hopes to play Friday against the Marlins.

Braun has sat out the last two games but said his troublesome calf is feeling much better. He'll go through pre-game workouts on Friday with the hope of returning to the starting lineup. The 34-year-old has struggled to a .200 average through 55 at-bats this year.
