Ryan Braun went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a triple and two strikeouts in Sunday's win over the Reds.

Braun went deep against John Lamb with two outs in the first inning, good for his 24th homer of the season. In addition to the tater count, he's hitting .278/.347/.504 with 77 RBI. The numbers aren't as monstrous as those from his MVP days, but it's been a nice year nonetheless for the 31-year-old slugger.
Aug 30 - 5:08 PM

Wily Peralta flummoxed the Reds in Sunday's 4-1 win, hurling seven innings of one-run ball.

Peralta struck out six without walking a batter. Brayan Pena slapped an RBI single in the second inning to drive home the lone run to score on the 26-year-old right-hander's watch. Peralta has the talent to succeed and flashes it from time-to-time, as he did on Sunday, but a 4.30 ERA and 1.48 WHIP tell the tale of his season-long inconsistency. He'll head on the road for another showdown with the Reds in his next start.
Aug 30 - 4:59 PM

Brewers pitching prospect Nathan Kirby is expected to undergo Tommy John surgery.

The 40th pick in this year's Draft, Kirby's bonus was reduced at the last minute due to an undisclosed medical issue, although it's not clear whether it involved his elbow. Regardless, it's a tough break for the left and the Brewers, as he'll now be sidelined until 2017.
Aug 30 - 9:29 AM

Scooter Gennett had himself a nice all-around game in Saturday's loss to the Reds, finishing 4-for-5 with a triple, three RBI and three runs scored.

Gennett supplied RBI hits in the second, fourth and fifth. The fifth-inning RBI came on a triple, his fourth of the season. Despite all of his best efforts, the Brewers still lost 12-9. This was his second four-hit game in the month of August and he's hitting to a .263/.298/.402 triple-slash with six homers and 27 RBI for the season.
Aug 29 - 11:21 PM

Matt Garza continued to struggle in a Saturday no-decision against the Reds, surrendering seven runs on 11 hits over 3 2/3 innings.

The Reds smacked Garza in the face early, scoring twice in the first inning and four more times in the second. The big blow in that second frame was a three-run homer by Jay Bruce. The tough outing is nothing new, as Garza's allowed a whopping 19 runs in 13 1/3 innings over his last three starts. He'll drag a 5.56 ERA and 1.54 WHIP into a home start against the Pirates next time he takes the ball.
Aug 29 - 11:15 PM

Domingo Santana went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's win over the Reds.

In addition to cracking his fifth home run of the year, Santana walked once and struck out once. The former Astro was part of the trade deadline deal that sent Carlos Gomez to Houston. In his first six games played with the Brewers, he's already homered three times. Those in need of some pop in deeper mixed leagues might want to take a flier.
Aug 29 - 1:41 AM

Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and two runs scored in Friday's win over the Reds.

Lucroy's been on an absolute tear during his current six-game hitting streak, hitting four doubles and three homers while driving in seven over that span. This is more like the hitter we're used to seeing, as compared to the impostor who's working with a .251/.317/.381 line for the season.
Aug 29 - 1:36 AM

Taylor Jungmann turned in a solid performance in Friday's win over the Reds, firing six innings of scoreless ball.

Jungmann allowed just three hits while striking out five and walking three over his six innings of work. The shutout performance lowered his ERA from an already stellar 2.66 to an even more stellar 2.48. A home start against the Pirates is upcoming as the 25-year-old right-hander looks to hit the stretch run on fire.
Aug 29 - 1:23 AM

MLB.com's Peter Gammons reports that the Brewers have placed Francisco Rodriguez on revocable waivers.

Gammons notes that the waivers will expire on Friday, so he must have been placed on them a couple days ago. There will surely be interest in K-Rod, who has a very reasonable contract and is having a great season. Whether the Brewers will be able to work out a deal remains to be seen.
Aug 28 - 9:24 AM

Khris Davis went 1-for-4 with a solo home run as the Brewers fell 6-2 to the Indians on Wednesday.

Davis took Cody Anderson yard for a solo shot in the second inning, giving the Brewers a temporary 1-0 lead. It's the fifth time he's gone yard in his last six games and his 10th home run in August. He has 17 on the year with 45 RBI and a .237/.316/.485 triple-slash line.
Aug 26 - 11:19 PM

Jimmy Nelson was handed his 10th loss after allowing five runs in 3 1/3 innings versus the Indians on Wednesday.

Jason Kipnis cleared the bases with a double in the second inning (helped by a Khris Davis error). Lonnie Chisenhall scored on a wild pitch in the third and hit an RBI single in the fourth. It wasn't a good outing for Nelson despite allowing only four hits and striking out four, as he walked eight batters. The right-hander now has a 3.81 ERA with a 1.27 WHIP and a 136/60 K/BB ratio over 158 1/3 innings. He will look for better results in his next start at home against the Pirates.
Aug 26 - 11:14 PM

Jonathan Lucroy homered twice, finishing 3-for-4 with three RBI and three runs scored in Tuesday's loss to the Indians.

Lucroy has now homered three times in his last two games, giving him seven home runs overall. The catcher is hitting .248/.315/.375 with 32 RBI and 42 runs scored in 83 games this season.
Aug 25 - 11:06 PM

Wily Peralta wasn't long for Tuesday's game, allowing four runs -- two earned -- over 2 2/3 innings in a loss to the Indians.

Despite two of the runs being unearned, Peralta struggled from the outset, allowing two runs in each of the first two innings and allowing two baserunners in the third before exiting. The right-hander allowed six hits and two walks in all, striking out one. It's been an up and down season for Peralta, who is now 4-8 with a 4.55 ERA and 1.52 WHIP through 15 starts. He'll try to get back on the upswing Tuesday against the Pirates.
Aug 25 - 10:48 PM

Brewers pitching prospect Nathan Kirby will see Dr. William Raasch for an evaluation of his sore left elbow.

Kirby has only made five appearances -- with poor results -- since being selected 40th overall in the 2015 MLB Amateur Draft out of the University of Virginia. There should be an update from the Brewers later this week.
Aug 25 - 5:02 PM

Ryan Braun will serve as the designated hitter Tuesday against the Indians.

Shane Peterson will start in center field and bat leadoff while Domingo Santana will start in right field and Khris Davis will play left.
