Khris Davis (knee) is slated to return from the disabled list on Tuesday.

Davis is ready to return now, but he played in five rehab games in five days through Sunday so the Brewers wanted to give him a day of rest before activating him. The outfielder missed five and a half weeks of action with a torn meniscus in his right knee.
Jul 6 - 5:51 PM

Jonathan Lucroy is not in the Brewers' lineup Monday.

It's a simple day off. Martin Maldonado is behind the plate while Lucroy rests.
Jul 6 - 4:06 PM

Carlos Gomez (wrist) is back in the Brewers' lineup Monday.

Gomez sat out Sunday's game after having to leave Saturday following a hit by pitch on the left wrist. He's probably still a tad sore but should be fine.
Jul 6 - 4:05 PM

With Matt Garza (shoulder) out injured, RHP Tyler Cravy will take his place in the rotation.

Cravy held a 3.79 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 66/26 K/BB ratio in 78 1/3 innings covering 14 starts for Triple-A Colorado Springs. It's difficult to recommend him for fantasy purposes, but desperate owners should at least keep an eye on him to see if there's short term benefit here.

Brewers OF prospect Omar Cotto racked up five steals Sunday in a win for Rookie-level Billings.

That gives him 11 steals in nine games this season. Cotto isn't just a one-trick pony. He's hit .308 this year with an impressive .455 on base percentage. The 23-year-old signed with Milwaukee on June 17 after playing collegiately at the University of Southern California. Ironically, he stole just seven bags in three years as a Trojan.

Brewers recalled RHP Corey Knebel from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Knebel was called up with Matt Garza hitting the disabled list with a shoulder injury. He had just been optioned down on July 3. In 21 1/3 innings, he holds a 2.95 ERA to go with 19 strikeouts.
Jul 6 - 2:54 PM

Brewers placed RHP Matt Garza on the disabled list, retroactive to July 3, with right shoulder tendinitis.

This is somewhat surprising, as there was little indication that Garza was dealing with arm troubles. It's unknown if this has been impacting his recent performance, but in his last two starts, he's been hit hard to the tune of 11 runs on 23 hits over 11 1/3 innings. For the season, Garza holds a 5.55 ERA and 68/33 K/BB ratio. No timetable has been set for his return as of yet.
Jul 6 - 2:50 PM

According to ESPN's Buster Olney, the Giants are looking at Brewers outfielder Gerardo Parra and Braves outfielder Cameron Maybin as possible trade targets.

Parra is currently playing for one of the worst teams in baseball and is a logical trade candidate. He's been on fire of late, too, raising his season slash line to .308/.345/.477 thanks to a bevy of multi-hit games to start July. He's also swatted seven home runs and driven in 25. Olney notes that Giant outfielders--combined--have hit just 12 homers on the season.
Jul 6 - 12:56 PM

Taylor Jungmann stayed hot, firing eight innings of one-run ball as the Brewers defeated the Reds 6-1 on Sunday.

Jungmann held the opposition to four hits and a pair of walks with four strikeouts in the outing. The lone run came around in his final inning on a Brandon Phillips RBI double. The 25-year-old, in six starts, has been excellent, compiling a 2.43 ERA with a 1.11 WHIP and a 27/10 K/BB ratio in 37 innings. Jungmann will be tested in his next start as he'll face the Dodgers in L.A.
Jul 5 - 4:05 PM

Gerardo Parra went 2-for-5 with a solo home run as the Brewers topped the Reds on Sunday.

Parra homered in the seventh inning off of Carlos Contreras, extending the Brewers' lead to 4-0. The outfielder has racked up five consecutive multi-hit games to open up the month of July. The surge has raised his triple-slash line to .308/.345/.477 with seven home runs and 25 RBI.
Jul 5 - 4:00 PM

Adam Lind went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a two-run home run as the Brewers extended their winning streak to eight games on Sunday versus the Reds.

Lind has knocked in a run in each of his last nine ballgames, homering four times with five multi-hit games in that span of time. On Sunday, he gave the Brewers some insurance with an RBI single in the fifth inning, then homered in the seventh to put the game out of reach for the Reds. Lind is batting a productive .298/.373/.518 with 14 home runs and 51 RBI on the year.
Jul 5 - 3:58 PM

Carlos Gomez (wrist) is not in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

Gomez had to exit Saturday's contest after being hit on the left wrist by a pitch. X-rays came back clean and he's expected to be fine, but the outfielder is surely sore. Gerardo Parra is handling center field Sunday.
Jul 5 - 10:47 AM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Angels have had trade discussions with the Brewers regarding Adam Lind and Gerardo Parra.

Rosenthal notes that the talks about Parra came before former general manager Jerry Dipoto resigned and that "nothing was close" to getting done. Still, both Parra and Lind make a lot of sense for the Halos since they're in need of left field and designated hitter help. The Brewers have caught fire of late, but they still figure to be sellers at the deadline and both Lind and Parra likely will be on the move.
Jul 5 - 10:40 AM

Adam Lind went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Reds.

Lind connected for his 13th homer when he took Reds starter Josh Smith deep in the fourth inning. He also added a single and walked twice to finish the day 2-for-3. Toiling away for a bad Brewers team, Lind is quietly posting a .295/.370/.507 triple-slash line with 13 homers and 48 RBI. After some lean years with the Blue Jays, his bat has come back in style over the last two-going-on-three seasons.
Jul 4 - 11:34 PM

Jimmy Nelson tossed 5 2/3 innings of three-run ball in Saturday's win over the Reds.

Nelson struck out five and walked one, with the home run ball serving as his nemesis. Marlon Byrd and Ivan De Jesus Jr. took him deep for solo shots in the second and fifth innings, respectively, with the third run on his line coming across on a Byrd RBI single in the sixth inning. With the start under his belt, Nelson's worked his numbers to a completely average 4.50 ERA and 1.31 WHIP, plus an 83/36 K/BB ratio over 102 innings. Up next on the docket, a road start against the Dodgers.
