Taylor Jungmann will not make his final scheduled start this weekend against the Rockies due to hip injury.

Jungmann suffered the injury in his most recent start. He'll finish the year with a 7.76 ERA over six starts and two relief appearances. Brent Suter will start on Friday while Wily Peralta will get the nod on Saturday.

Domingo Santana hit his 10th home run of the season in Saturday's loss to the Reds.

The Brewers had just six hits and only two extra-base hits against Dan Straily and company, with Santana's solo shot off Straily in the second inning turning out to be the only run the Brewers could push across in the loss. Santana now has 10 homers in 70 games this season, with six of those coming since he was activated from the disabled list on August 19 after missing almost two months with an elbow injury. A healthy Santana should contend for a starting spot in the Brewers' outfield in 2017.

Kirk Nieuwenhuis feels better after receiving a cortisone injection in his strained abdomen.

He's hoping to return at some point this year but that seems a bit ambitious with only eight games left on the schedule. Nieuwenhuis has mostly been a non-factor this year, hitting just .210 with 13 HR, 44 RBI and eight steals.
Sep 24 - 5:13 PM

Ryan Braun came through with a two-run single in the seventh inning on Friday, propelling the Brewers to a 5-4 victory over the Reds.

Braun also singled and stole a base in the ballgame, finishing the night 2-for-4. He has been extremely productive when he's been on the field this season, slashing .307/.369/.545 with 30 homers, 90 RBI and 16 stolen bases in just 129 games. While he remains an injury-risk, he's still one of the top five-category contributors in fantasy leagues and should be drafted as such next spring.
Sep 23 - 11:24 PM

Zach Davies was saddled with a no-decision on Friday, allowing three runs on seven hits across his five innings against the Reds.

The right-hander struck out three on the night and didn't walk a batter. All three runs came home on one mighty swing of Jose Peraza's bat in the fifth inning. For the most part, Davies has done a nice job this season, posting a 3.97 ERA and 1.25 WHIP over his 163 1/3 innings. He'll wrap up his season with a difficult matchup against the Rockies at Coors Field on Friday.
Sep 23 - 11:16 PM

Scooter Gennett went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's win over the Pirates.

Gennett connected for a two-run home run off Ryan Vogelsong in the first inning, jumping the Brew Crew to an early 2-0 lead. The dinger was his 14th of the season. In addition, the 26-year-old second baseman is slashing .269/.320/.422 over 476 at-bats.
Sep 22 - 11:12 PM

Chase Anderson held the Pirates in check in Thursday's win, yielding one run on four hits over 5 2/3 innings.

Anderson struck out six and walked one on the evening. He kept the scoreboard clean outside of a Francisco Cervelli solo home run in the fifth inning. For the season, the 28-year-old right-hander has pitched to a 4.36 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 113/51 K/BB ratio over 146 2/3 innings. His 2016 schedule will finish out with a road date with the Rangers next Wednesday.
Sep 22 - 11:05 PM

Kirk Nieuwenhuis has been diagnosed with a sports hernia.

He's been out for nearly a week with what the Brewers had been calling an abdominal strain, but now we have a more specific diagnosis. Nieuwenhuis was given a cortisone shot Wednesday and still hopes to make it back this season, but it doesn't look like a given.
Sep 22 - 5:53 PM

Andrew Susac (illness) struck out as a pinch-hitter on Wednesday night against the Pirates.

Susac had been on the shelf for a couple of days due to a minor illness. The 26-year-old backup catcher may get a start or two somewhere in the Brewers' final 10 games.
Sep 22 - 9:13 AM

Jimmy Nelson gave up four runs in five innings Wednesday in a loss to the Pirates.

Nelson has given up 24 homers and posted a 137/82 K/BB ratio in 174 innings this year. Last year, he allowed 18 homers with a 148/65 K/BB ratio in 177 1/3 innings. Offense is up, so the homers allowed is understandable. Still, he's regressed and his ceiling seems pretty limited now.
Sep 22 - 12:37 AM

Taylor Jungmann is scheduled to start against the Reds on Saturday.

Jungmann last made a start with the Brewers at the end of April. In 22 2/3 innings with the big league club this season, he holds an 8.34 ERA. While he has not allowed a run in his two bullpen appearances since being called up earlier this month, there is no fantasy upside here.
Sep 21 - 4:18 PM

Manny Pina (wife having baby) flied out as a pinch-hitter on Tuesday night against the Pirates.

Pina welcomed a baby girl into the world on Tuesday afternoon and then rushed to Milwaukee's Miller Park for the end of Tuesday night's game. That's some kind of dedication. The backup catcher is 14-for-51 (.275) with one home run in 25 games this season at the major league level.
Sep 21 - 8:48 AM

Martin Maldonado went 2-for-4 with his eighth homer of the year in a loss to the Pirates on Tuesday.

Maldonado connected with a Steven Brault pitch in the fourth inning, hitting his eighth homer in 70 games this year. The 30-year-old is slashing just .194/.320/.351 through Tuesday's game.
Sep 21 - 12:06 AM

Matt Garza allowed five runs on eight hits over four innings in Tuesday's loss to the Pirates.

Garza had allowed just three earned runs in his previous 23 1/3 innings coming into the start -- a bit of a deceiving stat, considering he'd also allowed four unearned runs in his last start and had allowed a homer in each of those four outings -- but the Pirates struck quickly with two runs after their first three batters. Things got only slightly better from there. The loss dropped Garza to 5-8 with a 4.52 ERA and 1.53 WHIP in 18 starts overall. An attractive bounce-back opportunity for the 32-year-old lies in a Sunday date with the Reds.
Sep 20 - 11:58 PM

Ryan Braun's wife Larisa gave birth to a baby boy on Tuesday afternoon.

The kid was named Greyson Joseph. Braun is out of the Brewers' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the visiting Pirates, but it sounds like he could return to action Wednesday. Jake Elmore drew the start in left field versus Bucs left-hander Steven Brault.
