Orlando Arcia finished 0-for-2 in the Brewers' loss to the Pirates on Monday.

Arcia's offensive struggles have actually worsened since he spent some time in the minors to work on his swing. The talented 23-year-old shortstop is batting just .202/.236/.262 in 58 major league games this season.

Jhoulys Chacin worked 6 1/3 innings of one-run ball Monday in a tough-luck loss against the Pirates.

Chacin did his part, but the Brewers mustered just two total hits -- and zero runs -- off Trevor Williams and the Pittsburgh bullpen. Chacin will carry a strong 6-2 record and 3.18 ERA into his next start at home against the Cardinals. He doesn't strike out many batters, but the 30-year-old right-hander is worth owning in deeper mixed fantasy leagues for the win potential and run prevention.

Wade Miley (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Biloxi later this week.

Miley got through a simulated game Sunday with no issues, clearing the way for his return to game action. He's not eligible for activation until July 9.

Travis Shaw (wrist) is not in Monday's lineup against the Pirates.

Shaw tweaked his right wrist on Sunday and has been dealing with some soreness, so he'll get a breather. Hernan Perez will fill in at the hot corner.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: With Shaw out Hernan Perez moves up to the 5-hole, his highest spot in the order in a while. Perez is a great value play in DFS today, as he's playing in 85 degree heat with the wind blowing out, and he'll look to keep up his hot bat as he's 8 for his last 17.

Eric Thames went 2-for-4 with two homers and four RBI in a loss to the Phillies on Sunday.

Thames also walked. The 35-year-old power-hitter hit a solo shot off of Aaron Nola in the top of the first, and he brought Milwaukee new life with a three-run shot off of Hector Naris in the bottom of the ninth to make it a 10-9 game. He now has 9 homers in just 27 games this year, and his OPS bumps up to .973 in that time frame.

Chase Anderson was fortunate to pick up a no decision while allowing six runs in 5 1/3 innings on Sunday against the Phillies.

He walked two and struck out five. Anderson was outstanding against the Cubs on Tuesday while allowing just one hit and no runs in seven innings. He did not back that up with a strong effort. We've seen this version of Anderson too often in 2018, and his ERA is now up to 4.54 on the year over 77 1/3 innings. He'll attempt to find the magic again against the Cardinals on Friday.

The Brewers officially announced Sunday that Freddy Peralta will start Tuesday in Pittsburgh.

Peralta has been excellent in one start and awful in the other in his first two opportunities in the majors. He has some deep league streamer appeal Tuesday but doesn't come without risk. It's possible Peralta will earn additional starts if he pitches well against the Pirates.

Brewers recalled RHP Adrian Houser from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Houser is unscored upon in four relief innings with the big club this season. He will be used in low-leverage situations.
Jun 17 - 12:08 PM

Brewers optioned RHP Jorge Lopez to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Lopez pitched two innings Saturday, so the Brewers will replace him with a fresh arm. Adrian Houser has been recalled.
Jun 17 - 12:08 PM

Ryan Braun is absent from the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

It's a regular day of rest for Braun. Eric Thames is in left field and Jesus Aguilar is at first base. The Brewers also have Hernan Perez at shortstop over Orlando Arcia.
Jun 17 - 11:13 AM

Jonathan Villar (calf) was hitless in three plate appearances Saturday in his return to the lineup.

Villar had been nursing a minor calf ailment. He's sporting a .272/.320/.403 batting line this season for the Brew Crew.
Jun 17 - 8:15 AM

Travis Shaw went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Saturday's loss to the Phillies.

Shaw came through with an RBI single off Zach Eflin in the first inning, but the Brew Crew would fail to score again for the duration of the contest. The 28-year-old third baseman is hitting .247/.345/.494 with 14 home runs and 44 RBI over the course of 68 games played this season. His batting average is down a bit from a year ago, but otherwise he's playing very well on the heels of his career-best campaign in 2017.
Jun 16 - 8:25 PM

Christian Yelich went 0-for-3 with a run scored, a walk and three strikeouts in Saturday's loss to the Phillies.

While Yelich started out the game in fine fashion, walking and coming around to score on Travis Shaw's RBI single in the first inning, the rest of the contest was something of a slog for the outfielder. In his first season in a Brewers uniform, he's slashing .297/.370/.476 with nine home runs and 30 RBI across 229 at-bats.
Jun 16 - 8:19 PM

Junior Guerra surrendered three runs on four hits over 5 1/3 innings in Saturday's loss to the Phillies.

The first two runs on Guerra's line scored on solo home runs off the bats of Rhys Hoskins and Andrew Knapp in the fourth and fifth innings, respectively, while the third and final run to score against him was of the inherited variety after he left the contest with one out in the sixth inning. All told, he struck out seven and walked three before his afternoon came to an end. Guerra will carry a respectable 2.89 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 67/26 K/BB ratio (71 2/3 innings) into a home showdown with the Cardinals in his next scheduled outing.
Jun 16 - 8:08 PM

Wade Miley (oblique) is scheduled to throw a round of live batting practice on Sunday.

The veteran left-hander is making steady progress in his recovery from a strained oblique. He's not eligible to return from the disabled list until July 9, and if he continues on this path he may be ready right around that time.
