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.

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.
Apr 28 - 5:20 PM

Eric Thames left Wednesday's game against the Reds with left hamstring tightness.

Jesus Aguilar replaced Thames at first base to begin the eighth inning. Brewers manager Craig Counsell said the injury is "not a big deal," so it looks like Thames will avoid the disabled list. The hottest hitter in baseball went 1-for-3 with a single and two walks on Wednesday. With Milwaukee off on Thursday, Thames expects to be in the lineup Friday against Atlanta.
Apr 26 - 4:57 PM

Jett Bandy went 3-for-4 with two runs scored and two RBI in the Brewers' 9-4 win over the Reds on Wednesday.

Bandy hit an RBI single in the Brewers' five-run first inning before adding an RBI double in the bottom of the fourth. The 27-year-old catcher has a sensational .349/.391/.698 batting line with four home runs in 13 games this season, but he'll continue to share starts behind the plate with Manny Pina, who's also off to an excellent start offensively.
Apr 26 - 4:53 PM

Orlando Arcia finished 2-for-3 with a homer and three RBI in the Brewers' defeat of the Reds on Wednesday.

Arcia contributed an RBI double to the Brewers' five-run outburst in the bottom of the first inning before socking a two-run homer in the bottom of the third. The young shortstop got off to a slow start this season and is still batting just .229/.260/.371 in 21 games overall. We wouldn't expect a full-on breakout in 2017.
Apr 26 - 4:47 PM

Wily Peralta allowed four earned runs over five innings Wednesday in a win over the Reds.

Peralta was backed by five first-inning runs (and nine runs total) from the Milwaukee offense. He walked two and surrendered eight hits, including four solo home runs. The right-hander got off to a nice start this season and currently stands 4-1, but he's been roughed up in two straight outings against divisional opponents. A road matchup against the Cardinals is next.
Apr 26 - 4:41 PM

Neftali Feliz worked a scoreless inning in a non-save situation Wednesday versus the Reds.

Milwaukee was ahead 9-4 when Feliz entered the game in the top of the ninth, and he sealed that as the final score with quick three outs. The right-hander blew his first save of the season in brutal fashion last week against the Cubs, but he looks to be back on track now.
Apr 26 - 4:36 PM

Ryan Braun (foot) went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Tuesday's rout of the Reds.

Braun was lifted from Monday's series opener versus Cincinnati after fouling a few balls off his foot, but he only suffered some mild bruises. Even after Tuesday night's 0-for-4, the veteran outfielder is slashing .282/.378/.592 through 20 games this season.
Apr 26 - 8:44 AM

Hernan Perez went 3-for-3 with a homer, a triple and a walk Tuesday as the Brewers whooped the Reds 9-1.

Orlando Arcia has shown nothing in the way of development since entering the majors, but the Brewers would be sacrificing some defense by putting Perez at shortstop, as they did tonight. Maybe they should do it anyway, at least for now. Perez is hitting .261/.346/.609 in his 46 at-bats. Arcia is at .209/.232/.299 in 67 at-bats.
Apr 26 - 12:59 AM

Zach Davies shut out the Reds for five innings to earn a victory on Tuesday.

He struck out six and walked one. Davies figured to be the Brewers' steadiest starter this year, but he's struggled mightily, coming into tonight's affair with an 8.24 ERA in four starts. Hopefully, he's back on track now and will return to being an asset in NL-only leagues.
Apr 26 - 12:56 AM

Tommy Milone notched his second career save while allowing one run over three innings Tuesday against the Reds.

The Brewers wisely let him finish up the 9-1 game tonight, allowing them to save their short relievers for Wednesday. Milone, who made three starts earlier this month, was returned to the pen with Matt Garza coming back from the DL.
Apr 26 - 12:55 AM

Jonathan Villar went 2-for-5 and knocked in four runs Tuesday against the Reds.

Villar is batting just .189 and has already struck out 33 times, but he's managed 14 RBI from the leadoff spot, giving him just as many as Ryan Braun has collected batting third.
Apr 26 - 12:51 AM

Eric Thames delivered his 11th homer Tuesday off the Reds' Robert Stephenson.

Eight of those homers have come versus Cincinnati pitching. Thames also worked his 14th walk in 20 games tonight before telling reporters after the game that he's got "plenty of urine and blood" to go around for MLB's drug testers. He has been tested three times since spring training, including a blood and urine test Tuesday. The guy is for real.
Apr 26 - 12:50 AM

Brewers prospect Brandon Woodruff pitched six shutout innings for Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Woodruff allowed just three hits on the night while walking just one and striking out five. Few prospects have seen their stock rise more than the 2014 eleventh-round pick has, as he now shows two plus pitches in his fastball and slider. Josh Hader gets the attention, but Woodruff might be more ready to contribute to Milwaukee if/when a spot opens in the rotation.
Apr 25 - 2:05 PM

Brewers prospect Lewis Brinson went 2-for-3 on Monday for Triple-A Colorado Springs.

In addition to the two hits, Brinson also scored a run, walked, struck out, stole a base and was caught stealing. If he was a basketball player, we'd call him a "stat-sheet stuffer." He's looked just fine since returning from the jammed finger, and he's well on his way to helping the Brewers/your fantasy team this summer.
