Gerardo Parra went 1-for-2 and drove home a pair of runs in a losing effort against the Pirates on Friday.

Parra plated the Brewers first run with a ground ball in the second inning, then doubled home Khris Davis in the sixth. He is getting a chance to serve as the Brewers everyday center fielder with Carlos Gomez on the disabled list, and appears to be making the most of his opportunity early on.

Jimmy Nelson pitched decently in a losing effort against the Pirates on Friday, allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits over his five innings of work.

Nelson punched out three on the night and didn't walk a batter. He was lifted in the fifth inning for a pinch hitter after throwing only 73 pitches. He was also victimized by poor defense, as a passed ball by Jonathan Lucroy contributed to the Pirates scoring. He'll carry a 1.50 ERA and 12/2 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's matchup against the Reds.

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Friday that while it's still too early to tell definitively, Carlos Gomez (hamstring) could return in two-to-three weeks.

Gomez is dealing with a strained right hamstring, and it seems like he'll require more than just a minimum stint on the disabled list. Gerardo Parra will function as the team's primary center fielder in his absence and is worth a look in deeper mixed leagues.

Jim Henderson (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Brevard County on Friday.

Henderson showed diminished velocity in spring training as he worked his way back from surgery to repair a torn right labrum. The Brewers will give him plenty of rehab outings before activating him.

Brewers recalled 1B/OF Jason Rogers from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

He's taking the roster spot of the injured Carlos Gomez (hamstring). Rogers was off to a .360/.429/.640 start at Colorado Springs and could see a little playing time against left-handers.

Brewers placed OF Carlos Gomez on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 16, with a right hamstring strain.

Gomez has been given a cortisone shot and will be re-evaluated next week before the Brewers determine whether he might be out longer than 15 days. They'll make a corresponding roster move prior to Friday's game, with Jason Rogers, Shane Peterson and Elian Herrera the most likely candidates for a promotion. Gerardo Parra will take over as the Brewers' center fielder while Gomez is out. Jean Segura moved up to replace Gomez in the leadoff spot Thursday, although Scooter Gennett is also a candidate to see time there if he starts swinging the bat better.

Brewers assistant general manager Gordon Ash said Thursday that Carlos Gomez (hamstring) will be placed on the disabled list.

The All-Star outfielder is dealing with a small tear in his right hamstring and it's unclear at the moment how long he will be sidelined. He also received a cortisone shot on Thursday. Gerardo Parra will see time in center field in his absence.

Mike Fiers allowed two earned runs over 5 2/3 innings Thursday in a loss to the Cardinals.

Fiers was in control until the bottom of the sixth inning, when Matt Holliday hit an RBI single and Mark Reynolds crushed an RBI double. St. Louis then went on to score two more runs on the Milwaukee bullpen. Fiers isn't showing very good velocity in the early going this season -- his fastball was 86-88 mph Thursday -- and he'll carry a rough 5.91 ERA into his next start at home against the Reds.
Apr 16 - 4:49 PM

Aramis Ramirez finished 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in the Brewers' loss to the Cardinals on Thursday.

The entire Milwaukee lineup struggled in the matinee at Busch Stadium. Ramirez is off to an especially bad start this year, hitting just .171 with a .400 OPS in nine games played. The 36-year-old announced last month that this will likely be his final season.
Apr 16 - 4:43 PM

Carlos Gomez (hamstring) is not in the Brewers' starting lineup Thursday versus the Cardinals.

No surprise after Gomez felt a pull in his right hamstring Wednesday night. If he suffered a strain, a trip to the disabled list is probably inevitable. He's headed back to Milwaukee for an examination by team doctors. Gerardo Parra is starting in center field on Thursday afternoon against Cardinals right-hander John Lackey and could be asked to play there regularly over the next couple of weeks. Jean Segura is leading off.
Apr 16 - 11:30 AM

Carlos Gomez exited Wednesday's loss to the Cardinals with a right hamstring injury.

Gomez said he felt a pull in the hamstring and let up while running down the first base line in the ninth inning. He's already been ruled out for Thursday's matinee, and the Brewers will know more about his availability going forward depending on how he feels Thursday.
Apr 15 - 11:43 PM

Wily Peralta took the loss on Wednesday, yielding four runs on 10 hits over five innings against the Cardinals.

The Cardinals didn't hit Peralta particularly hard, but they were consistently making contact. Along with the 10 hits, Peralta walked one and struck out only one on the evening. The right-hander, who performed well in 32 starts last year, was solid in his first start of the season and will look to get back on track in his next start at home against the Reds.
Apr 15 - 11:15 PM

Carlos Gomez left Wednesday's game against the Cardinals with a lower-body injury.

Sprinting to beat out a double play in the ninth inning, Gomez pulled up as he raced down the line. He beat the relay throw, but left with a trainer shortly after. It was certainly not a great tradeoff for Gomez or the Brewers. The club should update his status soon.
Apr 15 - 11:15 PM

Brewers prospect Luis Sardinas extended his hitting streak to six games Tuesday in a loss to Triple-A Round Rock.

Only one of his nine hits has gone for extra bases, but Sardinas has never been much of a power hitter. He hit a respectable .261 in his first cup of coffee in the major leagues last season and should get another shot in the bigs later this year. The 21-year-old has experience at three of the four infield positions and has speed to burn on the base paths.
Apr 15 - 4:05 PM

Matt Garza wasn't particularly sharp Monday but picked up a win anyway, allowing two runs -- one earned -- over 5 2/3 innings in a 5-4 victory over the Cardinals.

Garza surrendered six hits, walked five and threw a wild pitch, needing 100 pitches to get through his 5 2/3 frames. He was able to escape relatively unscathed, though, as the Cards weren't able to cash in with runners on base. The right holds a 4.22 ERA and hasn't made it through six innings in either of his first two outings. He gets the Pirates on the road this weekend.
