Brewers recalled OF Brett Phillips from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Phillips is 2-for-14 at the plate across multiple stints in the majors this season. He's not a given to still be on the roster for the start of the second half.

Brewers placed 2B Jonathan Villar on the 10-day disabled list with a right thumb injury.

Villar evidently must have suffered the injury during the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Pirates. He'll undergo an MRI Sunday to determine the severity. Villar has seen his playing time dip lately with Brad Miller getting more and more starts at second base.

Jesus Aguilar went 1-for-4 with a walk and two RBI in the second game of a double header against the Pirates on Saturday.

The Brewers trailed by six in the ninth inning when Aguilar laced a single to center that drove in two runs, giving him a whopping 70 RBI on the season already and leading the National League in that category. He has an even .300 batting average and also leads the NL with 24 homers and a .996 OPS. Somehow he had to win the Final Vote to make it on to the All Star team.

Brent Suter gave up just two hits and one run in five innings but took a loss nonetheless to the Pirates on Saturday.

A Max Moroff solo homer in the third inning was the only damage but that was enough to get stuck with a loss. He struck out three and issued one walk in his first game back following a disabled list stint (forearm tightness). He falls to 8-6 with a 4.39 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 17 starts and two relief appearances. He's done a good job of limiting walks this year but gives up a lot of home runs and doesn't whiff a ton of batters. He is still usable in fantasy depending on the matchups.

Christian Yelich plated the Brewers' lone run as they dropped the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Pirates

Yelich delivered an RBI single to drive in Keon Broxton in the fifth inning, cutting the Brewers' deficit to 2-1, but that would be as close as they would get. He finished the afternoon 2-for-4 and is now hitting .288/.360/.453 with 11 homers, 43 RBI and 12 stolen bases on the season.
Jul 14 - 4:08 PM

Chase Anderson pitched decently in a losing effort against the Pirates on Saturday, allowing two runs on six hits over his 5 1/3 innings of work.

The right-hander walked two and struck out four on the afternoon. All of the damage against him came in the first inning, where Starling Marte and Gregory Polanco connected on back-to-back solo home runs. He settled in nicely afterwards, but the Brewers' offense was unable to catch up. Now 6-7 on the season, Anderson will carry a 3.78 ERA and 1.17 WHIP into the season's second half.

Jesus Aguilar is not in the Brewers' starting lineup for the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Pirates.

There's nothing wrong with the All-Star first baseman, he's just getting a breather and will return for the nightcap. Travis Shaw is sliding over to start at first base while Hernan Perez gets the nod at second base against Ivan Nova and the Pirates.

Brewers activated LHP Brent Suter from the 10-day disabled list.

Suter is set to start the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Pirates. Prior to landing on the disabled list earlier this month with left forearm tightness, he had posted an 8-6 record, 4.53 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 78/18 K/BB ratio over 93 1/3 innings. He's still nothing more than a fringe streaming option in most mixed leagues, and it may be best to let him prove his health first before trying to deploy him.

Brewers placed RHP Junior Guerra on the 10-day disabled list with a right forearm injury.

The specifics of the injury are not yet known, so it's hard to project what kind of timetable he could be looking at. Guerra was roughed up for six runs on nine hits over four innings in Friday's loss to the Pirates. He was a quality back-end starter for the Brewers in the first half, registering a 3.23 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 96/39 K/BB ratio across his 97 2/3 innings.
Jul 14 - 10:26 AM

Brewers recalled INF/OF Nate Orf from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Orf was just optioned to Colorado Springs on Thursday, but finds himself right back with the big league club in the wake of the injury to Eric Thames. He'll provide an extra utility option on the bench for at least a couple of days.
Jul 14 - 10:24 AM

Brewers placed Eric Thames on the 10-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain.

Thames suffered the injury during Friday's game against the Pirates. With the All-Star break on the horizon, he won't need to miss many games and should be ready to return as soon as he's eligible or shortly after. Nate Orf was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move.
Jul 14 - 10:22 AM

Travis Shaw hammered his 17th home run of the season as the Brewers fell to the Pirates on Friday evening in Pittsburgh.

The hard-hitting third baseman tagged Pirates' starter Nick Kingham for a solo shot in the seventh inning, pulling the Brewers to within three runs at 6-3, but that would be as close as they would get. Shaw finished the night 1-for-4 and is now hitting .241/.339/.469 with 17 long balls and 54 RBI on the season.
Jul 13 - 10:06 PM

Junior Guerra was hit hard in Friday's loss to the Pirates, surrendering six runs on nine hits in just four innings of work.

The right-hander struck out four while issuing two walks in the contest. The Bucs jumped on him early and often in this one, scratching out three runs in the first inning, two more in the second and tacking on a solo homer by Gregory Polanco in the fourth. Even with the rough outing though, Guerra finishes a solid first half with a 3.23 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 96/39 K/BB ratio across 97 2/3 innings.
Jul 13 - 10:05 PM

Eric Thames was removed from Friday's game against the Pirates with right hamstring tightness.

Thames was 0-for-1 before departing. He's considered day-to-day, but with the All-Star break looming it wouldn't be surprising to see him sit out the rest of the weekend as an added precaution.
Jul 13 - 8:03 PM

Brewers recalled RHP Brandon Woodruff from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Woodruff has posted a 5.01 ERA over nine appearances -- four starts -- for Milwaukee this season. He'll operate in long relief.
