    It’s all still clicking for the Milwaukee Brewers. Marco Estrada pitched into the eighth inning, striking out a season-high nine batters, and Khris Davis went yard in the sixth inning for his third home run of the year as the Brew Crew rolled to a 5-3 victory over the Cubs on Saturday night at Miller Park.

  8. The Cubs finally scored a run for Jeff Samardzija

    The Cubs finally ended their embarrassing stretch of zeroes behind Jeff Samardzija.

  9. All is quiet with the Brewers and Matt Garza

    The latest on Matt Garza is that there’s nothing new to report. The Brewers and Garza reportedly agreed to a four-year, $52 million contract on Thursday, but the team later announced that negotiations were ongoing and that no deal had been reached. The announcement was rather odd, especially when coupled with the news that he…

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Chicago Cubs

    Pirates 2, Cubs 1: And with that the Pirates are going to the playoffs. It’s so strange, though, how even though it’s the franchise that has lost for the past 20 years — even though it’s just the laundry which has been shut out so long — that we sort of passively put all that…

  11. Fredi Gonzalez ejected after Angel Hernandez refuses to give Braves HBP

    Janish hbp

    In the seventh inning of Monday’s Brewers-Braves game, Marco Estrada had a curveball get away from him, hitting Paul Janish squarely in the knee. It was as about as run-of-the-mill as HBPs get, at least until Angel Hernandez called Janish back to box, ruling the pitch a ball. The video isn’t embeddable yet, but here’s…

    Rockies 4, Marlins 3: The Rockies won this game but the Marlins took the 1993 Expansion Cup for this season, closing out the year with a 4-3 record against Colorado. What — you don’t keep track of the 1993 Expansion Cup? There’s a great ceremony at the end of the series each year in which either…

  13. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Alejandro De Aza,

    All kinds of comebacks on Wednesday. Let’s call it “Comeback Wednesday!” — wait, what? Really? OK, sorry folks. The people in the marketing department said that’s impossibly lame. They’re working on something centering around the idea of “Extreme Comebacks” but they want to focus group it first. We’ll let you know. White Sox 6, Yankees…

  14. Brewers place Marco Estrada on DL, call up Tyler Thornburg

    Jun 5, 2013, 12:55 PM EDT

    San Francisco Giants v Milwaukee Brewers

    Marco Estrada is headed to the disabled list with a hamstring injury and the Brewers will replace him on the roster with Triple-A right-hander Tyler Thornburg. Estrada injured his hamstring during Monday’s start, continuing a rough season that has seen him serve up a league-high 14 homers on the way to a 5.32 ERA. His…

  15. The Brewers move Chris Narveson to the bullpen

    Mar 30, 2013, 11:39 AM EDT

    Chris Narveson AP

    After signing Kyle Lohse to a three-year, $33 million deal earlier this week, the Brewers suddenly have more starting pitchers than rotation spots. While early indications were that Mike Fiers would be the odd man out, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports that Chris Narveson will begin the season in the bullpen. Narveson is coming off…

  16. Mike Fiers expected to lose rotation spot to Kyle Lohse

    Mar 29, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v Colorado Rockies

    There’s no official word yet on who the Brewers will bump from the starting rotation to make room for Kyle Lohse, but Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that it’s expected to be right-hander Mike Fiers. That speaks pretty highly of the Brewers’ rotation depth because Fiers was damn good as a 27-year-old…

  17. Kyle Lohse’s three-year contract with the Brewers is official

    Kyle Lohse passed his physical with the Brewers earlier this evening, making his new three-year contract official. The deal is reportedly worth $33 million and includes $1 million in performance bonuses. And now #Brewers announce 3-yr deal for Lohse: "This signing makes us a better club today than we were yesterday," Doug Melvin said.— Adam…

  19. Canada and Mexico brawl figuratively and literally; Canada wins

    Mar 9, 2013, 6:32 PM EDT

    Canada v Mexico - World Baseball Classic - First Round Group D

    Canada kept its second round World Baseball Classic hopes alive with an emphatic 10-3 victory over Mexico today. Coming off an eight-inning 14-4 defeat at the hands of Italy, a game that was called early due to the mercy rule, Canada bounced back with impressive hitting performances by designated hitter Justin Morneau and right fielder…

  20. Report: Brewers and Orioles scouted Dodgers’ right-hander Aaron Harang

    Mar 4, 2013, 7:58 PM EDT

    Aaron Harang AP

    Assuming all continues to go well with Chad Billingsley‘s elbow, the Dodgers figure to explore possible trades for Aaron Harang and Chris Capuano, who both project to begin the season in the bullpen. With that in mind, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports that the Brewers and Orioles had scouts in attendance today as Harang threw…

  21. Team Mexico, Brewers ace Yovani Gallardo out with groin strain

    Mar 2, 2013, 1:07 PM EDT

    Yovani Gallardo

    Yovani Gallardo was supposed to make a spring start for the Brewers on Sunday and then pitch for Mexico against the United States in the World Baseball Classic. The Brewers, though, have scratched him due to a groin tightness, putting his status for the WBC in doubt. Gallardo’s injury is considered minor. Brewers manager Ron…

  22. 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.…

    By noon we’d already done a dozen posts about players and teams avoiding arbitration ahead of today’s deadline, so something had to give. We’ll keep posting the more noteworthy cases, but here’s a roundup of the not-so-noteworthy ones that will be updated throughout the day. • Gaby Sanchez and the Pirates: $1.75 million • Antonio…

    99976628_crop_340x234

    According to the Associated Press, Chris Narveson has avoided arbitration with the Brewers by agreeing to a one-year, $840,000 contract. Narveson, who was arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter, made just two starts last season prior to undergoing surgery in May to repair his labrum and rotator cuff. The 31-year-old southpaw is expected to…

  25. Chris Narveson expected to be recovered from shoulder surgery by spring training

    Dec 31, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v Arizona Diamondbacks

    Chris Narveson, who underwent season-ending shoulder surgery two starts into 2012, “is expected to be back to 100 percent well before the start of spring training,” according to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com. However, as it stands now he wouldn’t be assured of a spot in the Brewers’ rotation with Yovani Gallardo, Marco Estrada, Mike Fiers,…
