Wily Peralta was smoked for six runs in 3 1/3 innings, taking the loss on Monday against the Padres.

The Padres scored in each of the four innings in which Peralta appeared, including a three-spot in the second inning. The right-hander gave up eight hits, walked three, uncorked a wild pitch, and struck out two on the evening. He's shown promise at times this season, but has been prone to rough outings such as Monday's. Overall, Peralta carries a 4.55 ERA, a 1.50 WHIP, and a 40/19 K/BB ratio over 63 1/3 innings. He'll have to work against the Cardinals in a home start next.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Monday that Kyle Lohse will remain in the club's rotation "as of now."

Counsell said Sunday that the organization would discuss Lohse's status and apparently they've decided to leave him in the starting five for the time being. "Kyle’s still in the rotation," Counsell said. "Kyle’s pitching Friday night as of now." Lohse holds an ugly 6.31 ERA and 1.47 WHIP on the season and is on thin ice, to say the least.

Brewers SS prospect Jake Gatewood collected his seventh home run Sunday in a win for Rookie-level Helena.

He was 0-for-11 with seven strikeouts in his previous three games. The 19-year-old has a tendency to swing for the fences as evidenced by his high strikeout rate (101 Ks in 275 at-bats). But when he connects, it's a thing of beauty. Gatewood has already improved his average from .227 with Low-A Wisconsin earlier this year to .245 in his first 38 games for Helena.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Sunday that the organization will have a discussion about the rotation spot of Kyle Lohse.

Lohse was handed his 13th loss of the season on Sunday, allowing four runs on nine hits over just 4 1/3 innings against the Cubs. He owns a troublesome 6.31 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 86/30 K/BB ratio on the season and has shown no signs of figuring things out or stringing a few good starts together. It's quite shocking that he has remained in the rotation for as long as he has.
Aug 2 - 11:18 PM

Ryan Braun went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles and a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Cubs.

Braun's been on a gentle power tear over his last 10 games, notching three homers and Sunday's pair of doubles. He's hitting .269/.338/.490 with 19 homers, 63 RBI and 15 steals this season. Given that he could not buy an extra-base hit through the first month of the year, his overall power numbers are very respectable.
Aug 2 - 5:46 PM

Kyle Lohse picked up his 13th loss of the season in Sunday's contest with the Cubs, allowing four runs on nine hits over 4 1/3 innings.

Sunday's start counts as a decent outing relative to some of Lohse's other disasters this season. He allowed solitary runs in the first, second, fourth and fifth innings while striking out three against one walk. For the season, he holds a 6.31 ERA and 1.47 WHIP to pair with an 86/30 K/BB ratio over 124 innings. The Cardinals are up next on his schedule, which probably isn't a good thing.

Brewers RHP prospect Jorge Lopez scattered six hits over eight shutout innings Saturday in a win for Double-A Biloxi.

Lopez has been on fire lately, winning three of his last four with a 2.45 ERA. He's near the top of the league leaders in almost every pitching category including wins (second), strikeouts (third), ERA (fourth) and WHIP (fifth). The 22-year-old should be in line for a promotion in the very near future.

Adam Lind went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Saturday's loss to the Cubs.

The double was Lind's 21st of the season. It was also the only extra-base hit that the 44-61 Brewers managed for the game. A long-time Blue Jay, Lind is hitting a cool .278/.356/.485 with 16 homers and 60 RBI in his first season playing for the Brew Crew.
Aug 1 - 10:41 PM

Matt Garza tossed a quality start in Saturday's loss to the Cubs, allowing three runs on four hits over six innings.

Garza's name was floated about in various rumors prior to the trade deadline, but the veteran right-hander remains a Brewer for the time being. He struck out five and walked four in Saturday's contest with the Cubs. Anthony Rizzo burned him for a three-run homer in the third inning, but Garza otherwise kept the scoreboard clean. His overall numbers are poor, as he holds a 5.17 ERA and 1.53 WHIP, but he'll toss up a respectably veteran outing from time to time. The Padres are up next on his schedule.
Aug 1 - 10:30 PM

Taylor Jungmann fell to the Cubs on Friday after giving up three runs (two earned) in 5 2/3 innings.

Jungmann threw a career-high 112 pitches. While he failed to make it out of the sixth inning, he pitched fairly well, allowing seven hits and two walks while notching seven strikeouts. The 25-year-old has held his own during his first stint in the majors, posting a 2.23 ERA and 53/21 K/BB ratio in 64 2/3 innings over 10 starts. However, we're still a bit hesitant about trusting him in mixed fantasy leagues.

Ryan Braun smacked a solo homer Friday against the Cubs.

His first-inning blast against Jason Hammel was the only offense of the game for the Brewers. Braun had a fairly quiet July overall, but he has three home runs over his last seven games.
Aug 1 - 1:15 AM

Brewers claimed RHP Preston Guilmet off waivers from the Dodgers.

Guilmet has allowed three runs over 5 1/3 relief innings during his brief time in the majors this season. He'll join the Brews' bullpen.
Jul 31 - 1:28 PM

Brewers recalled RHP Tyler Thornburg from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

He's taking Jonathan Broxton's spot on the roster. Thornburg is getting another shot despite posting a 5.28 ERA at Triple-A.
Jul 31 - 12:49 PM

Brewers acquired RHP Zach Davies from the Orioles for OF Gerardo Parra.

The 22-year-old Davies has taken a step forward this season, amassing a 2.84 ERA and an 81/33 K/BB ratio in 101 1/3 innings in Triple-A. He's not viewed as having a ton of upside, but if he makes it as a fourth starter -- which is a definite possibility -- that seems like a great return for two months of Parra. The Brewers will likely send him to Triple-A for now, but he could make his major league debut before the year is out.
Jul 31 - 12:48 PM

Brewers acquired OF Malik Collymore from the Cardinals in exchange for RHP Jonathan Broxton and cash considerations.

Collymore entered the season ranked 27th by Baseball America among the Cards' prospects, but he's hit only .216/.326/.378 in rookie ball while making a move from second base to the outfield. He does have some athleticism, so there's some lottery ticket potential here.
