    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.

    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.…

    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…

    Jan 28, 2013, 3:12 PM EST

    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…

    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…

    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…

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…

  9. 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

    A few days ago Corey Hart admitted that his foot problems are “not going to go away” and today the Brewers first baseman suffered an apparent setback during a pregame baserunning session.

    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,…

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

    Aug 17, 2012, 5:30 AM EST

    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.…

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

    Aug 7, 2012, 6:10 AM EST

    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…

  16. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke likes career-long outfielder Corey Hart at first base

    Aug 1, 2012, 2:19 PM EST

    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…

    Zack Greinke was ejected in the bottom of the first inning against the Astros this afternoon for spiking a ball in the dirt following a close call at first base.

    Aroldis Chapman

    Rafael Soriano untucking his shirt? Pfft! Child’s play.  Aroldis Chapman did somersaults off the mound after locking down the save against the Brewers last night: In case this video disappears, watch it here. Dusty Baker was not happy with it afterwards, saying “we don’t play like that.” Teammate Ryan Hanigan said “you can’t be doing that…

    We have an official no-hitter alert in Cincinnati. Reds right-hander Bronson Arroyo, who entered the night with a pedestrian 4.19 ERA, has tossed seven innings against the Brewers without allowing a hit. He’s fanned three and issued zero walks, and the only thing keeping him from being on perfect game watch was a hit-by-pitch of…

    Aramis Ramirez went through pregame drills today in the hopes of returning to the Brewers’ lineup, but instead he’ll sit out a fifth consecutive game with a strained quadriceps muscle.

    John Axford Getty

    John Axford didn’t speak to reporters after his club-record streak of 49 straight saves came to an end last night against the Cubs, but he had good reason for it. After the Brewers topped the Cubs 8-7 on a Corey Hart walkoff single in the 13th inning, Axford hurried out of the ballpark to accompany…

    Veteran right-hander Jeff Suppan bounced around between a few different minor league systems in 2011 and had surrendered nine runs (on 17 hits) in 6 2/3 innings through his first two starts this season at Triple-A Tuscon. So it was a shock when the Padres announced Tuesday that they were calling him up for a…
