  1. The Brewers are one awful baseball team right now

    Kyle Lohse

    First of all, the Brewers are carrying 13 pitches, even though Ryan Braun can’t play because of a neck injury. That leaves them with a three-man bench that just doesn’t work in National League games. Second of all, the Brewers are carrying 13 pitchers. Why on earth is John Axford pitching a second inning in…

    Aramis Ramirez was forced to leave last night’s game with a left knee sprain and he’s now looking at an extended absence. According to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com, the Brewers placed Ramirez on the 15-day disabled list today and recalled utility man Josh Prince from Triple-A Nashville.

    Today is my first day back at work in the fortified compound and I’m just now starting to feel back in the swing of things. It’s a good time, then, to look back at my ten days in the desert and talk about some of the things that stuck out, for better, for worse, for…

    Corey Hart is not expected to be healthy until late May. Mat Gamel just underwent his second major knee surgery in two years.

    The Brewers aren’t counting on Corey Hart to return until sometime in May, but he received good news on his surgically-repaired right knee yesterday. According to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com, Hart was cleared to begin intensifying his rehab after an MRI showed sufficient healing in his knee joint. The 30-year-old had surgery in January to…

    I’m at the Brewers’ complex and I just got done talking to Corey Hart. For the second straight year he’s on crutches while I’m here, so that kind of stinks. But he’s having an MRI tomorrow. Assuming it’s all good he’ll be able to start the slow march back to playing condition.  And he’s optimistic…

    Injured Milwaukee Brewer first basemen stick together. From Adam McCalvy of MLB.com: Sure, it’s cliche to think of Major League teammates as family. But Corey Hart proved today that it can also be true. Hart has already extended an offer for Mat Gamel to move in with Hart and his family for the remainder of Spring…

    Mat Gamel aggravated his surgically repaired right knee over the weekend, but as of yesterday the Brewers seemed optimistic that it was a minor issue and he could resume workouts as soon as today.

    Bad news this afternoon out of Brewers camp. According to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com, first baseman Mat Gamel aggravated his surgically-repaired right knee Saturday during a workout.

  11. Brewers revert to thrifty form

    Feb 9, 2013, 7:24 PM EDT

    Ron Roenicke

    The Brewers’ offseason opened with speculation about a push for Josh Hamilton. 3 1/2 months later, their biggest pickup has been Tom Gorzelanny. Mark Attanasio’s Brewers won 96 games and went to the NLCS in 2011, and while the team lost Prince Fielder afterwards, it was able to bring in Aramis Ramirez as a replacement.…

  13. Red Sox sign Lyle Overbay as Mike Napoli fallback plan

    Jan 31, 2013, 4:16 PM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Philadelphia Phillies

    Veteran first baseman Lyle Overbay has agreed to a minor-league deal with the Red Sox, according to Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald. Overbay should have a decent shot at claiming a backup job thanks to Mike Napoli‘s hip problems, which could require some days off and/or late-inning defensive replacements. And if nothing else the…

  14. Lyle Overbay “talking to” Brewers about minor league deal

    Jan 28, 2013, 3:12 PM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Philadelphia Phillies

    In an effort to add some first base depth following Corey Hart‘s knee surgery the Brewers are “talking to” free agent Lyle Overbay, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com. Rosenthal reports that Overbay has other teams interested besides the Brewers, but he played in Milwaukee in 2004-2005 and probably won’t find a better opportunity for…

  15. Corey Hart has knee surgery, will be out four months

    Jan 25, 2013, 2:12 PM EDT

    corey hart getty

    Corey Hart was slated for knee surgery. Then he postponed it in order to get a second opinion. Then he got his second opinion. It apparently matched the first: Brewers spokesperson Mike Vassallo reports that Dr. William Raasch performed a debridement of [Hart's] knee joint surface and repaired a “small” meniscal tear. Recovery time is…

    Jan 22, 2013, 1:28 PM EDT

    corey hart getty

    The Brewers announced last week that Corey Hart was going to have knee surgery after he developed swelling in his knee. The surgery — which was to be a debridement of his knee joint and to repair a meniscal tear – was supposed to go down this week and would have put him on the shelf…

    corey hart getty

    Bad news: the Brewers just announced that Corey Hart will have right knee surgery next Tuesday. The recovery time: three to four months. Hart missed time last year with plantar fasciitis in his left foot. It was his first season as the Brewers’ first baseman, where he took over for Prince Fielder.  Mat Gamel will likely cover…

  18. Expect the Nationals to trade Michael Morse

    Mike Morse Getty

    It took Adam LaRoche a couple months to cave in and accept the Nationals’ two-year offer, but now that he’s returning to Washington expect Michael Morse to be on the way out. Morse has somewhat quietly been one of the better right-handed hitters in baseball since becoming a regular in 2010, but there’s nowhere for…

    Corey Hart

    Corey Hart, who was already dealing with plantar fasciitis in his left foot, hasn’t played since injuring the foot running the bases Sunday and Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports that the Brewers first baseman/outfielder “will be fitted with a custom foot support.” The hope is that will allow Hart to rejoin the lineup relatively soon,…

  23. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 17, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    Chipper Jones

    Braves 6, Padres 0: Chipper Jones with two mammo yicketties on Chipper Jones bobblehead night. One of his homers was his 2,700th career hit. Say what you want about the guy, but he has always had a flair for the dramatic and has always risen to the occasion. Even kinda lame occasions like bobblehead nights.…

  24. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 7, 2012, 6:10 AM EDT

    New York Yankees v Detroit Tigers

    Tigers 7, Yankees 2: Justin Verlander was amazing, striking out 14. I’m not sure why Jim Leyland kept him in there for 132 pitches given that the Tigers had a five run lead by the sixth inning, but I guess the fans liked it. And heck, he was still throwing 100 miles per hour, so…

    Aug 1, 2012, 2:19 PM EDT

    corey hart getty

    Mat Gamel got hurt and Taylor Green didn’t hit, so the Brewers turned to Corey Hart as Prince Fielder‘s replacement at first base and … well, manager Ron Roenicke likes it a lot. Hart had started just two career games at first base prior to this season–compared to nearly 7,000 innings as an outfielder–but he’s…
