Jonathan Lucroy (toe) is on pace to be activated from the disabled list on June 1.

Lucroy had an X-ray on Monday to see how his fractured left big toe had healed and said that he received good news. He'll go out on a brief rehab assignment later this week, with the exact time and place to be determined. Lucroy has been on the shelf since mid-April.

Kyle Lohse was tagged for five runs over 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Giants on Monday.

Lohse held the Giants to just one run over the first five innings, but he was pulled with one out in the sixth after allowing four straight batters to reach. All four of them came around to score in what turned out to be a seven-run inning for San Francisco. The veteran right-hander was showing signs of progress coming into Monday's start, but he owns a 5.80 ERA through 10 starts on the year. He'll get the Diamondbacks next week.
May 25 - 5:50 PM

Khris Davis went 3-for-3 with a pair of solo homers and three runs scored in a loss to the Giants on Monday.

Davis also drew a walk, so he reached base in all four of his plate appearances. His first home run of the day nearly got taken away, as it was ruled that he didn't touch home plate after the Giants appealed. However, the call was reversed after a replay review. This was his second career multi-homer game. Davis has been very inconsistent so far this season, resulting in a .245/.333/.424 over 42 games.

Ryan Braun stayed hot Monday by launching a two-run homer and drawing a walk against the Giants.

His home run traveled at an estimated distance of 474 feet, making it the fourth-longest in the history of Miller Park. Braun struggled in the early going, but he's hitting .303 with 11 home runs and 32 RBI over his last 26 games. Fantasy owners who were patient or bought low are reaping the rewards.
May 25 - 5:47 PM

Brewers placed RHP Wily Peralta on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 23, with a strained left oblique.

Manager Craig Counsell expressed confidence on Saturday that Peralta would be able to make his next start, but now the club is saying the right-hander will be sidelined for 4-6 weeks. It's not clear at this point who will assume Peralta's spot in the rotation. David Goforth will be promoted prior to Tuesday's game to take his roster spot.
May 25 - 5:36 PM

Adam Lind went 0-for-3 with a strikeout and a walk in Sunday's loss to the Braves.

Given that the Brewers managed just three hits total against Mike Foltynewicz and the Braves, Lind shouldn't feel too bad about taking the 0-for-3. The veteran first baseman has gone hit-less in his last eight at-bats, but is doing well on the macro level, with a .271/.361/.493 batting line, plus seven homers, 19 RBI and 17 runs scored.
May 24 - 4:43 PM

Jimmy Nelson couldn't find the strike zone in Sunday's loss to the Braves, walking five as he allowed two runs in 5 2/3 innings.

Nelson threw just 60 of his 108 pitches for strikes. In addition to the five walks, he scattered five hits and struck out four. Both runs against him came in the sixth inning, when A.J. Pierzynski hit into a run-scoring fielder's choice and Andrelton Simmons managed an RBI single. When Nelson's able to control his stuff, he's an effective pitcher. He's posting a 3.67 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 47/23 K/BB ratio in 56 1/3 innings, numbers he'll take into a home start against the Diamondbacks next time through the rotation.
May 24 - 4:37 PM

Jean Segura (finger) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Friday.

Segura will undergo an X-ray on Monday to see if his fractured right pinkie finger is healed. If it is, a decision will be made on whether he needs a short rehab assignment. Friday is the first day he's eligible to return from the disabled list.
May 24 - 11:37 AM

Jonathan Lucroy (toe) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as next weekend.

Lucroy will have an X-ray Monday to see if his fractured left big toe is healed. If it is, he'll be cleared for a short rehab assignment and could be back in the Brewers' lineup next weekend when they take on the Diamondbacks. He's been on the shelf since mid-April.
May 24 - 11:35 AM

Aramis Ramirez is not in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

It's a routine day of rest. Elian Herrera will handle third base with Ramirez getting a breather.
May 24 - 10:17 AM

Ryan Braun is not in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

It looks like a routine day of rest for the red-hot slugger. Gerardo Parra is in right field Sunday in Braun's place.
May 24 - 10:08 AM

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Saturday that he expects Wily Peralta (side) to make his next scheduled start.

That would come against the Giants on Wednesday. Peralta was lifted from Friday's start after just four innings due to tightness in his left side, but it appears to have been a minor issue. Fantasy owners can feel safe rolling the right-hander out in weekly lineups next week.
May 23 - 2:28 PM

Ryan Braun homered and drove home four runs on Friday, leading the Brewers in an 11-0 rout over the Braves in Atlanta.

Braun got the Brewers started with a bang, blasting a two-run homer off Eric Stults in the first inning. He finished the night 3-for-3 with a pair of doubles and also drew a walk, reaching safely in all four of his plate appearances. After a slow start to the season, he has come on strong in recent weeks and is now slashing .273/.346/.538 with 11 homers and 33 RBI.
May 22 - 11:24 PM

Wily Peralta hurled four scoreless innings against the Braves on Friday before departing due to tightness in his left side.

Peralta allowed just one hit and a pair of walks while punching out two. His team had staked him to an early 10-0 lead, so the tightness in his side must have been a real concern for the Brewers to not let him go back out for the fifth inning. At this point, his next scheduled start against the Brewers on Wednesday could be in jeopardy.
May 22 - 11:21 PM

Wily Peralta was removed from Friday's start against the Braves after just four innings due to tightness in his left side.

He departed with a 10-0 lead, so to not stick around for another inning to earn the victory, so the team was clearly concerned about the issue. The Brewers should have an update on his status and potential timetable for his return shortly.
