Chris Capuano (elbow) will be sidelined for another 4-6 weeks after being diagnosed with a flexor strain.

Capuano has already been on the shelf for a month and he's now essentially back to square one. The southpaw has already undergone two Tommy John surgeries and will turn 38 in August, so his baseball future is looking pretty cloudy.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Friday that Domingo Santana (elbow) has seen little improvement and will likely be sidelined through the All-Star break.

Santana has been limited to just 18 games since the beginning of May due to a shoulder and more recently an elbow issue. He's already missed two weeks in his current disabled list stint and it doesn't appear he's close to resuming baseball activities, let alone make a return. In addition to the injuries, Santana sports a pretty disappointing .234/.347/.391 batting line this season.

Ryan Braun is absent from the Brewers' lineup Friday.

Braun is getting a breather against Max Scherzer, so he probably didn't put up much of a fight. Alex Presley is in left field.

Brewers SS prospect Orlando Arcia homered twice in Wednesday's doubleheader for Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Colorado Springs split the doubleheader, winning the first game before falling to Memphis in the nightcap. The 21-year-old only logged two hits in the double dip but made them count by driving in five runs. Arcia has held his own in Triple-A, batting .282 with six homers, 32 RBI and 10 steals. He was a rockstar in Double-A last season, batting .307 with 69 RBI and 25 thefts while leading Biloxi to its first division title.

Following Wednesday's win over the A's, Brewers manager Craig Counsell said that Jeremy Jeffress was not available due to an eye infection.

Jeffress normally would have seen a save opportunity, as the A's were working with a 4-2 lead. Because of the eye infection, though, Counsell instead opted to turn to Tyler Thornburg, who earned the save. There is little reason to believe that Jeffress' eye issue will be on that lingers.

Brewers optioned INF Yadiel Rivera to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Rivera was up for just one day to spell Hernan Perez (paternity leave) before being shuttled back to Triple-A. Thus is the life of the minor league player. In 47 plate appearances with the Brewers this season, he was hitting just .196/.213/.261.
Jun 22 - 7:14 PM

Scooter Gennett went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's win over the A's.

Lovely work by Gennett, who cracked a two-run homer in the fifth off A's starter Daniel Mengden. That dinger snapped a 1-1 tie and gave the Brew Crew a lead they would not relinquish. Four of Gennett's last 10 games have seen him notch multiple hits. The 26-year-old second baseman is slashing .275/.338/.451 with seven homers and 20 RBI over 193 at-bats.
Jun 22 - 7:06 PM

Junior Guerra pitched well in Wednesday's win over the A's, yielding two runs on five hits over seven innings.

Guerra struck out eight and walked one on the afternoon. Coco Crisp burned him for a solo homer in the fourth inning and Max Muncy managed an RBI single in the seventh to account for the scoring on his line. Guerra will carry a respectable 3.67 ERA and 1.14 WHIP into a home start against the Dodgers next time he toes the rubber.

Jonathan Villar is out of the Brewers' starting lineup Wednesday against the Athletics.

Yadiel Rivera will start at shortstop and bat ninth versus A's right-hander Daniel Mengden. Aaron Hill is batting leadoff in the afternoon game at Oakland Coliseum.
Jun 22 - 1:24 PM

Chris Carter went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Tuesday's loss to the A's.

Carter hit an RBI single off A's starter Sonny Gray in the sixth inning. It gave the Brewers a short-lived 2-1 lead which would be erased in the bottom of the frame. Outside of the single, the all-or-nothing slugger struck out three times. For the season, Carter is slashing .225/.297/.502 with 18 homers and 44 RBI across 249 at-bats. That fantastic power output comes with 91 strikeouts.
Jun 22 - 1:54 AM

Jimmy Nelson pitched well over five innings in Tuesday's no-decision against the A's, allowing one run on six hits.

Nelson struck out two and walked one on the evening, but even with those low counts, he had still thrown 105 pitches through five innings. The only run to score on his watch came via an RBI groundout by Stephen Vogt in the fifth. The 27-year-old right-hander will carry a 3.80 ERA and 1.36 WHIP into a home start against the Nationals next time he toes the rubber.
Jun 22 - 1:42 AM

Chase Anderson will be skipped on his next turn through the Brewers' rotation.

The other Brewers starters will also get extended periods of rest as we move closer to the All-Star break. Anderson was shelled for seven earned runs over just 2 1/3 innings in his last start Saturday against the Dodgers. He holds a 5.13 ERA and 1.28 WHIP for the year.
Jun 21 - 8:31 PM

Brewers recalled INF Yadiel Rivera from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

He'll hold down a spot on the Brewers' bench while Hernan Perez is away on paternity leave. Rivera is batting .196/.213/.261 in 47 plate appearances with the Brewers this season. He's not fantasy relevant.
Jun 21 - 1:43 PM

Brewers placed INF Hernan Perez on the paternity leave list.

Perez can remain on the paternity leave list for 24-72 hours. Yadiel Rivera will take his place on the Brewers' bench.
Jun 21 - 1:42 PM

Scooter Gennett clubbed his sixth home run of the season in a losing effort against the Dodgers on Sunday.

His first-inning blast off Kenta Maeda got the Brewers started with a bang, but that would wind up being the entire extent of their offense in the contest. Gennett finished the afternoon 1-for-4, raising his season slash to .266/.333/.429 to go along with six homers and 18 RBI.
