Andrew Susac is on the disabled list at Triple-A Colorado Springs due to an oblique injury.

Susac was acquired from the Giants on August 1 in the Will Smith trade and should play a significant role with the 2017 club. The Brewers would obviously like to get a look at him down the stretch. The hope is that he'll be healthy enough to play before the end of the minor league calendar, so a call-up in September appears realistic.

Junior Guerra (elbow) will be activated from the disabled list to start Friday against the Pirates.

Guerra, out since early August due to right elbow inflammation, threw 3 1/3 scoreless innings in a rehab start with Triple-A Colorado Springs on Saturday. The 31-year-old rookie has posted a surprising 2.93 ERA over 107 1/3 innings this season and should be stashed away in fantasy leagues in anticipation of his return.
Aug 29 - 4:57 PM

Chase Anderson surrendered two earned runs over 5 1/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Pirates.

Anderson was pitching pretty well until the top of the sixth inning, when John Jaso and Gregory Polanco both launched solo home runs. Anderson allowed just five hits total and one walk while striking out five. He'll carry a 7-11 record and 4.92 ERA into his next start on the road versus this same Pirates team.
Aug 28 - 4:53 PM

Michael Blazek (forearm) has resumed a throwing program.

His recovery from a forearm strain has gone more slowly than expected, but Blazek has made strides recently and a recent MRI revealed good news. He's hoping for a mid-September return.

Junior Guerra (elbow) is on track to rejoin the Brewers' rotation next weekend in Pittsburgh.

Guerra threw 3 1/3 scoreless innings in a rehab start with Triple-A Colorado Springs on Saturday. He'll be examined by the Brewers' medical staff before officially being cleared to rejoin the rotation later this week, assuming all is well. Guerra holds a 2.93 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in 107 1/3 innings this season and should be scooped up in fantasy leagues where he was dropped.
Aug 28 - 12:59 PM

Ryan Braun is not in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

He's just getting some rest. Domingo Santana is in left field.
Aug 28 - 11:40 AM

Hernan Perez homered twice and drove home four runs on Saturday, but it wasn't enough to lead the Brewers to victory over the Pirates.

Perez got the scoring started with a three-run blast off Jameson Taillon in the first inning, and he added a solo shot off the right-hander in the third. That gave the Brewers an early 5-1 lead, though they were unable to hold onto it. Perez has been one of the biggest surprises in baseball this season, slashing .281/.308/.470 with 13 homers, 47 RBI and 26 stolen bases. He has come from nowhere to develop into a very capable five-category producer in mixed leagues.
Aug 27 - 11:32 PM

Jimmy Nelson was hit hard in Saturday's no-decision against the Pirates, allowing six runs on seven hits in just 3 2/3 innings of work.

Nelson also issued three walks while striking out only one batter in the contest. The Brewers offense staked him to an early 5-1 lead, but the wheels fell off for Nelson in the fourth inning as the Pirates struck for five runs and chased the right-hander from the ballgame. He'll look to right the ship in a rematch against these same Pirates in Pittsburgh on Friday.
Aug 27 - 11:29 PM

Orlando Arcia belted the first home run of his big league career on Friday as the Brewers fell to the Pirates.

His three-run shot off of Ryan Vogelsong got the Brewers on the board in the sixth inning, but it would wind up being the extent of their offense in the ballgame. The rookie shortstop finished the night 1-for-4 and is now hitting a paltry .185/.267/.284 with eight RBI on the year.
Aug 26 - 11:40 PM

Matt Garza pitched well in a losing effort against the Pirates on Friday allowing five runs (zero earned) on five hits in hi 5 1/3 innings of work.

Garza punched out nine batters on the night while walking three. All of the damage against him occurred in the sixth inning, where the first two Pirates reached on errors to start a five-run uprising, capped off by a grand slam off the bat of Jordy Mercer. Garza will look to improve upon a 4.89 ERA and 1.60 WHIP when he does battle against the Cardinals on Wednesday.
Aug 26 - 11:40 PM

Kirk Nieuwenhuis hit a two-run home run, his 12th of the season, in Thursday's loss to the Pirates.

Nieuwenhuis thwarted Chad Kuhl's shutout bid with the two-run dong in the seventh inning. Keon Broxton's resurgence, coupled with Hernan Perez' emergence and the presence of Ryan Braun in left field, has left Nieuwenhuis as sort of the odd man out in the Brewers' outfield lately, but he's still found plenty of at-bats with Braun's injury issues. The 29-year-old is hitting .214/.327/.405 in 109 games overall.
Aug 26 - 12:24 AM

Wily Peralta allowed two runs over five innings in a no-decision Thursday against the Pirates.

Don't look now, but Peralta, who was left for dead in June after compiling a 6.68 ERA, has given up two runs or fewer in three of his four starts since being recalled earlier this month. Like in those starts, it wasn't pretty Thursday, but he did enough to keep the Brewers in the game. Peralta has gotten his ERA down to 5.87 through 17 starts, and he'll look to keep that positive momentum going heading into Tuesday's tilt with the Cardinals.
Aug 26 - 12:17 AM

Ryan Braun slugged a pair of home runs Wednesday in the Brewers' 7-1 rout of the Rockies.

That concludes a three-game sweep for the Brewers. Braun hit a solo shot off Rockies starter Tyler Anderson in the bottom of the fourth inning and then added a two-run bomb off Chad Qualls in the bottom of the seventh. He finished the day 2-for-4 with three RBI and two runs scored and is now slashing .317/.380/.562 with 24 home runs, 74 RBI, 13 stolen bases, and 66 runs scored in 105 games this season. Pretty good stuff from the 32-year-old outfielder.
Aug 24 - 5:24 PM

Zach Davies limited the Rockies to one run over six innings Sunday for his 10th win of 2016.

Davies issued three walks but struck out eight and limited a sometimes-dangerous Colorado offense to five hits. The one run against him came on a Nolan Arenado solo shot in the top of the first inning. Davies, 23, holds a decent 4.06 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, and 108/34 K/BB ratio in 133 innings (23 starts) this season for Milwaukee. Up next is a start at home against the Cardinals.
Aug 24 - 5:20 PM

Brewers sent OF Ramon Flores outright to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Flores was designated for assignment on August 19 and subsequently passed through waivers unclaimed. This season, he has hit just .205/.294/.261 over 289 plate appearances, but at 24 years old, shouldn't be considered a lost cause just yet.
