Brewers transferred RHP Tyler Thornburg to the 60-day disabled list.

This is nothing more than a procedural move to open up a spot on the 40-man roster for new acquisition Gerardo Parra. Thornburg has been out since early June with a right elbow injury, but he does not need Tommy John surgery. He isn't close to rejoining the Brewers' bullpen.
Jul 31 - 2:38 PM

Brewers acquired OF Gerardo Parra from the Diamondbacks for OF Mitch Haniger and LHP Anthony Banda.

When he's in the lineup, Parra will team with Carlos Gomez and Ryan Braun to give Milwaukee one of the majors' best defensive outfield alignments. Of course, this isn't great news for Khris Davis, or Parra himself, as the pair will now share at-bats. Parra is slashing only .259/.305/.362.

John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7 reports the Diamondbacks have traded Gerardo Parra to the Brewers.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick says that outfield prospect Mitch Haniger, a supplemental first-round pick from 2012, is headed to Arizona in return. The Diamondbacks will also get left-hander Anthony Banda, a 10th-round pick from 2012. Parra hasn't hit very well this season, but he's a very good defensive outfielder.

Yovani Gallardo yielded just three hits over seven scoreless frames in Wednesday's 5-0 victory over the Rays.

Gallardo gave up just three singles, walked one and struck out five. Though he's dealt with his bouts of inconsistency, the right-hander has tossed 14 2/3 scoreless innings over his last two outings. He'll take a nifty 3.38 ERA into a home start against the Giants next week.
Jul 30 - 3:57 PM

Martin Maldonado went 3-for-4 with four RBI in Wednesday's win over the Rays.

Maldonado drove in two runs with a single in the second, one run with a double in the sixth and another run with a single in the eighth. The backup catcher plated four of the team's five runs in the 5-0 victory.
Jul 30 - 3:38 PM

Carlos Gomez went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts in a loss to the Rays on Tuesday.

Gomez shouldn't feel too bad -- Rays starter Alex Cobb racked up 12 strikeouts on the evening, so his teammates did plenty of swinging and missing as well. Gomez is now 0-for-12 with six strikeouts in his last three games, dropping his slash line to .297/.359/.494. He's too talented to be mired in a slump for much longer, so a multi-hit game should be in the cards soon.
Jul 29 - 10:38 PM

Matt Garza held the Rays to one run on five hits over seven innings but settled for a no-decision Tuesday.

Garza has now allowed two runs over his last 15 innings after allowing five while recording just one out against the Nationals on July 19. Unfortunately Alex Cobb matched him frame for frame, depriving Garza of his eighth win. The right-hander walked two while striking out two in the outing. Garza will carry a 3.74 ERA into his next start, Tuesday against the Giants.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Diamondbacks are shopping Gerardo Parra.

The D'Backs are open for business, as they're also listening on Addison Reed, Aaron Hill, Oliver Perez, Martin Prado and Josh Collmenter. Crasnick notes that Arizona "loves Parra's makeup," but he'll be arbitration-eligible for a final time this winter and has only a .657 OPS this season.
Jul 29 - 8:53 PM

Brewer shortstop prospect Orlando Arcia went 2-for-3 with a walk for High-A Brevard County on Monday.

Arcia is hitting .291/.343/.404 with 22 doubles, five triples, three home runs, and 16 stolen bases for the season. The 19-year old native of Venezuela is the younger brother of Twins outfielder Oswaldo, and has a good chance to stay at shortstop in the long term. He lacks meaningful power, but has the potential to be a good defensive shortstop who hits .270 with 15 stolen bases.
Jul 29 - 10:04 AM

Rickie Weeks went 0-for-3 against the Rays on Monday to halt his hitting streak at seven games.

Weeks has gotten to play regularly of late with Scooter Gennett hurt, and he's been taking advantage, with eight hits, three doubles and three walks in 25 at-bats since the break. Gennett did return tonight, but since the game was in an AL park, Weeks was able to DH. He might sit tomorrow against Alex Cobb, but he'll be in Wednesday's lineup versus David Price.
Jul 28 - 10:04 PM

Brewers prospect infielder Nick Delmonico has been suspended 50 games for testing positive for an amphetamine.

Delmonico, who was acquired from the Orioles for Francisco Rodriguez last July, was batting .262/.300/.404 with four homers and 15 RBI over 37 games this season in High-A. The suspension essentially ends his season.
Jul 28 - 5:21 PM

Scooter Gennett (quad) is back in the Brewers' starting lineup on Monday night against the Rays.

Gennett was out of the Brewers' lineup for five games with tightness in his right quad, but he made an appearance as a pinch-hitter on Sunday and will start at second base in Monday's series-opener versus Tampa Bay.
Jul 28 - 3:48 PM

Scooter Gennett popped out in a pinch-hit appearance in Sunday's loss to the Mets.

Gennett hadn't seen game action since Tuesday, when he left with right quad tightness. The pinch-hit appearance is a good sign for Gennett, who is expected to return to the lineup on Monday. The second baseman is hitting .304/.342/.480 in what's been a breakout campaign.
Jul 27 - 6:34 PM

Jimmy Nelson allowed two runs while striking out six over seven innings but took the loss against the Mets on Sunday.

Nelson gave up five hits and two walks on the afternoon, with Lucas Duda's two-run homer serving as the game's only runs. Nelson has made two good starts since being destroyed by the Cardinals before the break, and he's got a 4.30 ERA and 22/8 K/BB ratio over 23 innings this year. Nelson will have a shot at redemption when he takes on those same Cardinals in St. Louis on Saturday.
Jul 27 - 6:20 PM

Scooter Gennett (quad) is expected to return to the Brewers' lineup on Monday.

Gennett is missing his fifth straight game Sunday with a tight right quad, but he made it through running drills before the game with no issues. Rickie Weeks is getting another start at second base Sunday, but expect to see Gennett out there on Monday against the Rays.
