Brewers signed OF Keston Hiura.

He signed for $4 million, which was a little below his slot value of $4.57 million. An outfielder who can also play second base, Hiura hit .442 with eight homers, 42 RBI and nine steals this past season at UC Irvine.

Travis Shaw homered, doubled twice and knocked in three runs Thursday as the Brewers beat the Pirates 4-2.

Shaw ruined Ivan Nova's day, collecting all three of his extra-base hits off the Pirates starter. Shaw had great results for the Red Sox the first two months of last year, only to fall off in June and never really pick it back up. This time around, he's avoided the June swoon; he's homered five times in 17 games this month.

Chase Anderson held the Pirates to two runs and two hits over six innings in a win Thursday.

Anderson has a 1.33 ERA while turning in six straight quality starts. He's had a heck of a season for a guy the Brewers were probably going to leave out of the Opening Day rotation if not for an injury to Matt Garza.

Eric Sogard went 3-for-4 with two doubles and two runs scored Thursday against the Pirates.

The two doubles give him 15 extra-base hits in 112 at-bats. Sogard, who didn't play in the majors last year, had 16 extra-base hits in 372 at-bats in 2015 and 11 in 291 at-bats in 2014. In what's been a pretty crazy year so far, Sogard's performance just might be the biggest outlier of them all.

Junior Guerra struggled to throw strikes but was able to turn in a quality start in a 4-3 win over the Pirates on Wednesday.

When he left the game his squad was trailing, so he didn't get credit for the win when they pulled ahead later in the contest. Guerra walked five batters while striking out six and yielding seven base hits. He gave up an RBI double to Josh Harrison in the third inning and another one to John Jaso in the fifth before surrendering a solo home run to Josh Bell in the sixth. Guerra has a pretty 3.11 ERA through seven starts even though he has walked almost as many batters as he has struck out. He has 27 strikeouts and 22 walks in 37 2/3 innings. He turned in a 2.81 ERA in 20 starts as a 31-year-old rookie last season.

Domingo Santana went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI while helping defeat the Pirates on Wednesday.

He socked a two-run dinger off reliever Daniel Hudson in the seventh inning and had an RBI single earlier in the contest. The 24-year-old is emerging as a pretty good fantasy outfielder. He has a .268 batting average with 12 home runs, 39 runs and 38 RBI. He's tossed in six stolen bases for good measure.

Corey Knebel allowed one hit and notched one strikeout while protecting a one-run lead in the ninth inning to earn a save against the Pirates on Wednesday.

He allowed a one-out single to Adam Frazier and then wild-pitched him to second base but was able to retire the next two batters to lock down the save. Knebel has an amazing 0.98 ERA with 64 strikeouts in 36 2/3 innings. He has earned 11 saves since taking over the closer role from Neftali Feliz earlier this season.

Brewers recalled LHP Brent Suter from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Suter will serve as bullpen depth with Wily Peralta landing on the 10-day disabled list with a calf strain. In seven appearances (including one start) covering 12 innings at the big league level this season, the 27-year-old southpaw had previously allowed an unwieldy seven runs on 14 hits.
Jun 21 - 7:53 PM

Brewers placed RHP Wily Peralta on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to June 20, with a right calf strain.

There is no current timetable for Peralta's return. Prior to suffering the calf strain, the 28-year-old right-hander had been pitching to an unpalatable 7.21 ERA and 1.71 WHIP in 17 appearances (eight starts). The Brew Crew shifted him over to the bullpen in mid-May.

Ryan Braun (calf) is scheduled to start a rehab assignment with Low-A Wisconsin on Thursday.

Braun has been slow to recover from the calf strain which sent him to the disabled list on May 26. The initial hope was that he might have been able to begin a minor league rehab assignment earlier this month, but that was scuttled. He will likely be on rehab assignment with Class-A through the weekend, after which the Brewers will decide on the next step in his return journey. If all goes well, he could potentially rejoin the team when they take on the Reds in Cincinnati for a series starting next Tuesday.

Eric Thames is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Pirates.

Thames has been ice-cold over the past two games, striking out seven times in nine at-bats. Jesus Aguilar will be playing first base and is hitting third on Wednesday while Thames attempts to clear his head.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: With Aguilar slotting into the third spot in the order, he'll provide value across the DFS industry at his current asking price. He's racked up a healthy .268 ISO against RHP so far this season, and Travis Shaw's presence in the clean-up spot should lead to Aguilar getting some good pitches to hit. The PIT/MIL contest is actually a sneaky stack this evening, especially the RH bats given that both pitchers have shown some reverse split tendencies.

Nick Franklin homered and plated two runs on Tuesday, but it wasn't enough to lead his club to victory over the Pirates.

Franklin got the Brewers on the board with a solo shot in the second inning then added on a run-scoring double in the third. He finished the night 2-for-3 and is now hitting .192/.259/.321 with a pair of homers and 10 RBI in his limited action this season.
Jun 20 - 11:55 PM

Zach Davies was obliterated in Tuesday's loss to the Pirates, giving up seven runs on 10 hits over five innings.

Davies walked one and struck out four on the night. The Pirates jumped on him for six runs in the first inning, three of which came on one mighty swing from Jose Osuna. He settled in nicely after that though, only allowing a solo shot to Andrew McCutchen in the third the remainder of his night. With this ugly outing, he now sports a bloated 5.40 ERA and 1.58 WHIP on the season. He'll look for better results when he takes on the Braves in Atlanta on Sunday.
Jun 20 - 11:55 PM

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Tuesday that Ryan Braun's rehabilitation from a calf strain has stalled.

Braun was said to be nearing a minor league rehab assignment 10 days ago, but we can now rule him out for the remainder of June. The veteran outfielder has been on the disabled list since May 26. There's no clear timetable for his return at this point.
Jun 20 - 5:51 PM

Brewers signed RHP Tom Wilhelmsen to a minor league contract.

Wilhelmsen was officially released by the Diamondbacks on Monday after posting a 4.44 ERA and 17/12 K/BB ratio over 26 1/3 relief innings. The 33-year-old was drafted the Brewers back in 2003.
