    Martin Maldonado Brewers

    Martin Maldonado is the Brewers’ backup catcher behind top-notch starter Jonathan Lucroy, so he doesn’t play much, but when he does get into the game sometimes he makes ridiculously good plays like this one yesterday against the Red Sox.

    Adam McCalvy knows what time it is. He saw catcher Martin Maldonado walk into Brewers camp and asked the hard questions that needed to be asked: After only four days off, a noticeably trim Maldonado reported for duty at Maryvale Baseball Park. “Not that I was overweight last year, but I wanted to come into…

  10. The Brewers-Padres game ended … oddly. But I think the umps got it right.

    How did the Brewers’ winning streak end? One run down, a man on second and Martin Maldonado being called out for interfering with a ball in fair territory: Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think this was a botched call as many have said this morning. Yes, Maldonado’s foot is still in the batter’s…

  11. Edinson Volquez pulls off a first: seven innings, no walks

    Edinson Volquez

    Padres starter Edinson Volquez blanked the Brewers for seven innings Wednesday to win for the first time this year. Normally, that wouldn’t necessarily be worthy of a blog entry. However, it happened to be the first time in 127 career starts in which Volquez went seven innings and walked no one. Volquez, who walked 105…

    Milwaukee transferred Corey Hart to the 60-day disabled list, meaning the injured first baseman is not eligible to return until May 30.

    Boston Red Sox v New York Yankees

    Don’t you love the word “penultimate?” Me too! Yankees 4, Red Sox 3: It took twelve innings, but Raul Ibanez‘s heroics won the day. He homered off Boston closer/arsonist Andrew Bailey to bring the Yankees back from a 3-1 deficit in the ninth and then he singled in the improbably-in-the-game Frankie Cervelli to walk it…

    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…

  17. A’s acquire George Kottaras from Brewers for Fautino De Los Santos

    George Kottaras

    As soon as the Brewers designated George Kottaras for assignment last week the clock was ticking on a trade and sure enough it’s now official: Milwaukee has sent the veteran catcher to Oakland for reliever Fautino De Los Santos. Kottaras makes up for a low batting average with good power and excellent plate discipline, so…

  19. Trade coming? Brewers activate Jonathan Lucroy, designate George Kottaras for assignment

    Jul 26, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    George Kottaras

    In making room for starting catcher Jonathan Lucroy‘s return from the disabled list the Brewers designated backup catcher George Kottaras for assignment. That means Milwaukee has decided to stick with Martin Maldonado as Lucroy’s new backup, but it’s unlikely that they’d be willing to simply let Kottaras go for nothing via waivers. Instead, expect the…

    Jonathan Lucroy was off to a surprising start before suffering a fracture in his right hand almost two months ago. But he’s inching closer to rejoining the Brewers’ lineup. According to Brewers’ media relations director Mike Vassallo, Lucroy is tentatively scheduled to begin a minor league rehab assignment Thursday with Class A Wisconsin. Lucroy began…

    Texas Rangers v Milwaukee Brewers

    Jonathan Lucroy has been on the disabled list since late May, when his wife dropped a suitcase on his hand–and sadly got a bunch of hate mail from “fans”–but the fracture has healed enough for the Brewers catcher to catch a bullpen session over the weekend. Rowan Kavner of MLB.com reports that Lucroy had the…

    With Prince Fielder‘s departure assured, the last thing the 2011 NL Central champion Brewers needed was to lose Ryan Braun for a third of the season. It’s likely to happen, though, even if his appeal is still pending. The rotation should be strong enough to keep the Brewers in the race while Braun is out,…
