Ryan Braun (trapezius) said Sunday that he thinks he will be able to avoid the disabled list.

The veteran outfielder explained, "It’s a couple things in my arm. In all likelihood it’ll be more than a day but hopefully not too long." It sounds as though fantasy owners may want to have a contingency plan in place for the first half of the week if possible.

Domingo Santana slugged two home runs Sunday in the Brewers' 4-3 defeat of the Braves.

Santana hit a solo shot off Braves starter Mike Foltynewicz in the bottom of the fifth and then got to Folty again for a three-run blast in the bottom of the sixth. Those four runs were all Milwaukee would need in the afternoon victory. Santana is batting just .197 this season, even after Sunday's 2-for-4, but he has five home runs and 12 RBI along with three stolen bases. There's real fantasy upside here.

Neftali Feliz earned his sixth save of the season Sunday as the Brewers topped the Braves.

Feliz struck out one in a hitless top of the ninth at Miller Park to seal the 4-3 victory. He's had a couple of ugly outings this month, but overall the arrow is pointing up.
Apr 30 - 5:13 PM

Matt Garza allowed three earned runs over six-plus innings Sunday in the Brewers' win over the Braves.

Garza allowed an RBI single to Matt Kemp in the first, a solo homer to Freddie Freeman in the sixth, and the third earned run came when Corey Knebel gave up an RBI single to Brandon Phillips shortly after Garza exited in the seventh. It was a pretty good outing overall for the veteran right-hander, who struck out seven and walked none. Still, we wouldn't trust him in fantasy leagues pushing forward.

Ryan Braun was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Braves due to tightness in his right trapezius muscle.

Braun always seems to be banged up and has battled minor injuries throughout his career, with 2017 being no exception. It sounds as though it's the type of injury that will be day-to-day, but look for an update on his status from the Brewers after Sunday's game.
Apr 30 - 4:29 PM

Travis Shaw (hand) is absent from the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

Shaw has a bruise after being hit on the right hand by a pitch. He received treatment and thinks he'll be ready to go on Monday. Hernan Perez is handling third base Sunday.
Apr 30 - 11:14 AM

Jimmy Nelson gave up 11 hits and five runs over five innings in a loss to the Braves on Saturday.

Not much went right for Nelson on this day -- four of the Braves' 11 hits went for extra bases, and he struck out just two of the 24 batters he faced. It was his third straight subpar start and dropped him to 1-2 with a 5.34 ERA and 1.53 WHIP overall. Nelson will have another tough assignment Thursday when the Brewers visit the Cardinals, the club he lost to his last time out.

Ryan Braun was ejected from Saturday's game against the Braves for arguing balls and strikes.

Braun was hitless in three at-bats on the night, and when he was punched out in the bottom of the seventh he let home plate umpire Quinn Wolcott hear his displeasure. Nick Franklin took over for Braun in left field.

Travis Shaw left Saturday's game against the Braves due to a right hand contusion.

If Shaw is forced to miss time it might be Hernan Perez seeing regular starts at the hot corner. Perez shifted from center field to third base while Keon Broxton checked into the game to take the place of Perez.
Apr 29 - 9:09 PM

Keon Broxton is not in the Brewers' starting lineup on Saturday.

While Broxton's bat has picked up a bit in recent days, the Brewers need to find a way to keep Hernan Perez's bat in the lineup, and on Saturday it's at the expense of Broxton. Look for him to return for Sunday's series finale.
Apr 29 - 3:58 PM

Chase Anderson took a no-decision after allowing four runs in six innings Friday against the Braves.

The Braves scored all four runs in the third inning, including a bases-clearing double from Matt Kemp. Prior to the third inning, Anderson had allowed just three earned runs through his first four starts. The 29-year-old still owns a stingy 2.10 ERA and 1.07 WHIP, but we’re not expecting that to continue. He’ll get the Cardinals in St. Louis in his next outing.
Apr 29 - 12:57 AM

Orlando Arcia went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer and two runs scored Friday against the Braves.

Arcia has now homered in back-to-back games. The 22-year-old has pulled his batting average up from .209 to .243 in that time. The Brewers are going to be patient with him due to the value he provides on defense, but he’s not ready to be much of a fantasy factor just yet.
Apr 29 - 12:57 AM

Eric Thames (hamstring) went 1-for-4 with a single and a walk in his return to the lineup Friday against the Braves.

Thames was forced to make an early exit Wednesday due to left hamstring tightness, but fortunately for fantasy owners, he felt fine after the off-day on Thursday. The 30-year-old has been a revelation in his return to MLB, batting .364/.484/.870 with 11 homers and 19 RBI through 22 games.
Apr 29 - 12:57 AM

Junior Guerra (calf) has resumed throwing bullpen sessions.

He's slated to throw a couple live batting practice sessions beginning early next week and then be cleared to begin a rehab assignment if all goes well. Guerra is working his way back from a strained right calf that he suffered in his first start of the season. He hopes to rejoin the Brewers' rotation before the end of May.
Apr 28 - 5:55 PM

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

Thames departed Wednesday's game with some left hamstring tightness, but it was a precautionary exit and he's ready to go. He's at first base and batting second against Bartolo Colon and the Braves.
