  • DL Hall Has Knee Evaluated

    Headshot for DL Hall

    Milwaukee Brewers left-hander DL Hall (knee) had his left knee evaluated in Milwaukee on Monday. "We have no indication that it's worse than (a tweak) right now. But we just want to be conservative. There's no sense in rushing through it or pushing through it at this point," assistant general manager Matt Kleine said. Hall tweaked his knee in his latest minor-league rehab appearance last Thursday with Triple-A Nashville when his cleat got caught on the field. The 25-year-old southpaw initially landed on the 15-day injured list on April 21 with a left-knee sprain and started his rehab assignment with High-A Wisconsin on May 19. It's unclear when his next rehab outing may be or when he might return to Milwaukee. In his four starts for the Brewers before his injury, Hall allowed 14 earned runs on 27 hits (four homers) while walking 10 and fanning 13 in 16 1/3 innings.

  • Willy Adames Hits Go-Ahead Home Run On Monday

    Headshot for Willy Adames

    Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Willy Adames went 2-4 at the plate with a three-run blast that powered the Brewers to victory in the opening game of the series. Adames now has eight home runs on the season with a solid .249/.322/.440, 35 RBI, and eight stolen bases. The 28-year-old is looking to put a disappointing season behind him and is already on pace to smash last year's totals. Under the hood, Adames has an above-average barrel rate, xSLG, hard-hit rate, and walk rate, which are great signs that he could be in the food a big summer. He is expected to continue to serve as the everyday shortstop in Milwaukee and consistently bat in the cleanup spot, setting him up for prime RBI opportunities batting behind Christian Yelich and William Contreras. Adames remains a solid shortstop and middle infield option in all standard leagues.

  • Robert Gasser Tallies Season-High Seven Punchouts

    Headshot for Robert Gasser

    Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Robert Gasser struck out a season and career-high seven batters across seven shutout innings on Monday. He allowed just three hits. The southpaw got back on track on Monday after allowing ten hits and for earned runs in his previous outing. Through his first four starts in the majors (23 innings), the 24-year-old holds a 1.96 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, and near-perfect 1:13 BB:K ratio. His underlying metrics are quite strong as he currently holds a 1.3% barrel rate and 21.3% hard-hit rate, which places him in the top 98th and 99th percentile among qualified pitchers. However, he has struggled to strike batters out with a poor 14.1% K rate. Nonetheless, Gasser has only had one poor outing in the majors so far and will look to keep the momentum rolling on Saturday when he takes on the Chicago White Sox.

  • Rhys Hoskins To Hit On The Field

    Headshot for Rhys Hoskins

    Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Rhys Hoskins (hamstring) plans to hit on the field on Monday for the first time since going on the injured list. "I feel as good as I can," Hoskins said. This will be the first time that Hoskins has hit on the field since being placed on the injured list with a right-hamstring strain. The 31-year-old might need to show a little more before the Brewers send him on a minor-league rehab assignment, mainly with running the bases, but it doesn't sound like Hoskins is far off from a return to the starting lineup as the team's primary first baseman. When Hoskins is finally ready to come off the IL, Jake Bauers will lose considerable playing time in Milwaukee. Before landing on the shelf, Hoskins was slashing .233/.340/.474 with an .813 OPS, nine home runs, 27 RBI and 17 runs scored in his attempt at a bounce-back campaign in 2024.

  • Tobias Myers Getting The Start Against Red Sox

    Headshot for Tobias Myers

    Milwaukee Brewers rookie right-hander Tobias Myers, not rookie Robert Gasser, will make the start at Fenway Park on Sunday to face the Boston Red Sox. This will be Myers' fifth start in his first MLB season. He was called up from Triple-A Nashville earlier in the week and threw a scoreless innings with two strikeouts against the Miami Marlins on Tuesday. The 25-year-old former sixth-round pick by the Baltimore Orioles in 2016 has gone 1-2 with a 5.00 ERA (6.85 FIP) and 1.39 WHIP with nine walks and 19 strikeouts in his 18 innings pitched so far in the majors, making him a pretty shaky streaming consideration for fantasy managers in deeper leagues on Sunday. Depending on how he looks against the BoSox, Myers could stick in Milwaukee's rotation for another turn or two with Joe Ross (back) on the injured list.

    Milwaukee Brewers infielder Brice Turang went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk, and a stolen base Saturday in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Boston Red Sox. Turang took Zack Kelly deep in the eighth inning to give the Brewers a 6-2 lead. His homer traveled 391 feet with an exit velocity of 102.1 mph. The 24-year-old also logged his 19th stolen base of the season, second in the majors behind Elly De La Cruz (31). He is having a terrific season for the Brewers, slashing .301/.356/.429 with three home runs, 19 RBI. 21 runs, and 19 steals over 47 games in 2024. Turang has solidified a role as Milwaukee's leadoff hitter, and fantasy managers should continue to start him in all leagues.

    Milwaukee Brewers reliever Trevor Megill recorded a one-out save in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Boston Red Sox. He allowed one hit and struck out one over a 1/3 of an inning to secure the save. With two outs and the tying run at the plate, Megill was called on to protect the lead. He allowed an RBI single to the first batter he faced but quickly rebounded by striking out Red Sox infielder David Hamilton to end the game. The 30-year-old has converted 8-of-9 saves while owning a 1.93 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, and 18 strikeouts over 14 innings in 2024. Megill is Milwaukee's primary closer, while Devin Williams (back) is sidelined, and fantasy managers should continue to roll with him in all league formats.

  • Jared Koenig Serving As Opener For Second Straight Day

    Headshot for Jared Koenig

    Milwaukee Brewers left-hander Jared Koenig is serving as the opener against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park on Saturday for the second straight day. Koenig will be followed by starter Colin Rea this time around. Koenig joins Zack Greinke as the only Brewers pitchers to start consecutive games. In his "start" in Friday's series opener in Beantown, Koenig allowed a hit and a walk and struck out one in two-thirds of an inning before giving way to right-hander Bryse Wilson. The 30-year-old southpaw won't go very long again in Saturday's contest and isn't a realistic fantasy streaming option. Rea, meanwhile, will still be worth considering as a deep-league streamer despite not actually starting this game. In his nine starts for the Brew Crew this year, he's gone 3-2 with a solid 4.07 ERA (4.67 FIP) and 1.39 WHIP while walking 17 and striking out 35 in 48 2/3 innings.

    Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Bryse Wilson turned in an excellent outing in his team's 7-2 win over the Boston Red Sox on Friday. Wilson entered the game in relief with two outs in the first inning and wound up matching his career-high with seven strikeouts in the game. He finished with two earned runs on six hits over 5 1/3 innings to earn the win. Wilson now has a 3-1 record, 2.86 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, and 38 strikeouts over 13 appearances (six starts). The veteran right-hander doesn't have big strikeout numbers but he's shown the ability to suppress the opposing team's run production, making him worth a look as a streaming option in deeper leagues moving forward.

  • Bryse Wilson Not Starting Friday

    Headshot for Bryse Wilson

    Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Bryse Wilson is no longer listed as the starter for Friday's contest against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park, but he could end up serving as the bulk reliever following left-handed Jared Koenig, who will serve as the opener. The 26-year-old Wilson is still worth starting in fantasy lineups on the road in Beantown. In his second season with Milwaukee, he's gone 2-1 with a strong 2.79 ERA (4.95 FIP) and 1.14 WHIP with 16 walks and 31 strikeouts in 38 2/3 innings over 12 appearances (six starts). His 4.95 FIP shows he's been a bit fortunate so far this year, but he's been better as a starter for a Brewers rotation that has been hit hard by injuries in 2024. Even though he's not starting, Wilson will be the best candidate to pick up a win for the Brew Crew on Friday in a bulk role.

  • Jacob Misiorowski Settling In At Double-A

    Headshot for Jacob Misiorowski

    Milwaukee Brewers starting pitching prospect Jacob Misiorowski has begun to find his footing at Double-A after posting a 3.44 ERA through the first month. Since May, the top prospect in Milwaukee is riding a near-perfect 0.71 ERA with 16 punchouts through 12 innings. While he has only allowed six hits, he has given up 12 free passes, which has raised his WHIP to 1.42. The 22-year-old has elite strikeout potential but still has to significantly lower the 8.5 BB/9 he has had since May 1 if he wants to reach Triple-A this summer. Misiorowski is projected to reach the majors in 2025, according to MLB Pipeline, but remains a coveted asset in dynasty leagues as a top-five right-handed pitching prospect.

  • Freddy Peralta Fans Seven In Loss

    Headshot for Freddy Peralta

    Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Freddy Peralta made a quality start but took the loss Wednesday in a 1-0 defeat at the hands of the Marlins. Peralta allowed a solo home run to the first batter he saw, Jazz Chisholm Jr., and that was the difference in the ballgame. Peralta went seven innings allowing just four hits and a walk while striking out seven. It was a much-needed bounce-back game from the 27-year-old, as he had allowed three earned runs or more in four of his last five starts, including five earned his last time out. The righty now has a 3.81 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and a strong 23.0% K-BB% on the season. He'll take on the Cubs in his next start next Monday at home.

  • Garrett Mitchell Eyeing Return In Mid-June

    Headshot for Garrett Mitchell

    Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Garrett Mitchell (finger) will begin taking swings off a tee ahead of Friday's series opener against the Boston Red Sox. The next major steps would be for Mitchell to first log at-bats in the Arizona Complex League and then head out on a minor-league rehab assignment as he progresses from a fractured left index finger. Mitchell's goal is to return to the Brewers during a series against the Los Angeles Angels that begins on June 17. The speedy 25-year-old was in line to be Milwaukee's starting center fielder and leadoff hitter in 2024, and he could still slot into those roles upon his activation from the 60-day injured list. In 47 career major-league games, Mitchell is slashing a formidable .278/.343/.452 with five home runs, five doubles, 16 RBI, and nine stolen bases over 126 ABs. He's a decent stash in NL-only fantasy leagues with most of the club's outfielders struggling besides Christian Yelich.

Turang and Frelick are on the bench for the third straight day with the Miami Marlins just bombarding the Brewers with lefty starters. With the two lefty hitters out again for Milwaukee, Andruw Monasterio is playing second and batting leadoff, with Blake Perkins in center field and in the nine-hole against Marlins lefty Jesus Luzardo. Even in the leadoff spot on Wednesday, the 26-year-old Monasterio is a deep DFS sleeper while entering the day with a .182 average (4-for-22) with a homer, two RBI and two steals in just 12 games. Perkins is even more of a DFS long shot at the bottom of the batting order for the Brew Crew. Perkins has four homers while hitting .233 (31-for-133) in 2024.

  • Tyler Black Playing Well Since Demotion

    Milwaukee Brewers third base prospect Tyler Black started the 2024 season in Triple-A Nashville. Before getting promoted to the big-league roster on April 30, he slashed .303/.393/.525 with a double, three triples, five home runs, 18 RBI, and three steals. In 23 plate appearances with the Brewers, Black went 5-for-22 with two doubles and two steals. He was sent back to Triple-A on May 9 because Christian Yelich (back) returned from the injured list. Since then, Black has gone 9-for-30 with a double, a homer, six RBI, and four steals. Based on his performance so far in 2024, it seems that Black is a top candidate for promotion once someone on the Brewers goes down with an injury.

  • Joe Ross Officially Lands On 15-Day Injured List

    Headshot for Joe Ross

    The Milwaukee Brewers officially placed right-hander Joe Ross (back) on the 15-day injured list on Tuesday with a lower-back strain and recalled right-hander Tobias Myers from Triple-A Nashville in a corresponding move. It was reported that Ross was likely heading to the IL on Monday night after he was forced to leave his start against the Miami Marlins after just one inning due to back tightness. It's something that has been bothering the 31-year-old veteran for a while, so fantasy managers in deeper leagues shouldn't be expecting him to return from the IL when eligible. Myers should be the first option to hold Ross' rotation spot for however long he's sidelined. In his first nine starts of 2024, Ross is 2-4 with a 4.50 ERA and 1.38 WHIP with 16 walks and 35 strikeouts in 42 innings pitched.

Ortiz was hit by a pitch on his foot in Monday's loss to the Fish but had X-rays come back clean after the game, allowing him to return to the lineup the very next day. The former fourth-round selection of the Baltimore Orioles in 2019 out of New Mexico State has gotten hot since the end of April and is now slashing .290/.398/.533 with a .931 OPS, five home runs, 15 RBI and 16 runs scored in 107 at-bats. He has never faced Rogers in his career but has hit just .148 (4-for-27) with one of his five home runs against left-handed pitching in 2024. In the last 14 days, Ortiz has gone 13-for-39 (.333) with four of his five long balls on the season.

  • Brewers Calling Up Bradley Blalock To MLB

    The Milwaukee Brewers are calling up pitching prospect Bradley Blalock for what would be his big league debut whenever he enters a game. The righty has been pitching at Double-A Biloxi in 2024, and has never even seen any action Triple-A. The 23-year-old doesn't have particularly gaudy numbers in his minor league career, but was pitching well for Biloxi before his call-up, posting a 2.27 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, and a 7:29 BB:K over 35 2/3 IP so far this season. While he worked as a starter in the minors, he'll likely provide bullpen depth for the Brewers, although Joe Ross left Monday's start after just one inning due to a back injury, so the Brewers may need another starter for Ross' next scheduled turn through the rotation this coming Sunday.

  • Joey Ortiz Getting X-Rays On His Foot

    Milwaukee Brewers infielder Joey Ortiz (foot) is going for X-rays on his right foot after he was hit by a pitch early in Monday's game against the Miami Marlins. The good news is that Ortiz was able to stay in the 3-2 extra-inning loss in Miami, going 0-for-1 with two walks and a strikeout to drop his season average to .290 and his OPS to .931. We'll have a better idea of how much time the 25-year-old might have to miss once we get the results of his X-rays. The former fourth-round pick by the Baltimore Orioles in 2019 out of New Mexico State is off to a great start this year with a .292/.387/.538 slash line with a .925 OPS, five home runs, 15 RBI and 16 runs scored in 106 at-bats. If Ortiz is forced to miss extended time, both Andruw Monasterio and Owen Miller could see playing time at the hot corner for the Brew Crew.UPDATE: Ortiz's X-rays came back negative, so consider him day-to-day for now.

  • Joe Ross Likely To Land On Injured List

    Headshot for Joe Ross

    It appears likely that Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Joe Ross (back) will land on the injured list after leaving his start on Monday against the Miami Marlins after just one inning due to lower-back tightness. After being looked at by doctors, it was determined that the 30-year-old veteran is dealing with a lower-back strain, which will almost certainly keep him out for at least a couple weeks. Ross entered his start on Monday with a 2-4 record, 4.61 ERA (3.88 FIP) and 1.37 WHIP with 15 walks and 35 strikeouts in 41 innings pitched over his eight starts. Fantasy managers in shallower mixed leagues shouldn't feel compelled to hang onto Ross now that he's hurt. It remains to be seen who will Milwaukee will use to take Ross' spot in the rotation, but left-hander Aaron Ashby could be an option.

    Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Rhys Hoskins (hamstring) started a running progression ahead of Monday's series opener against the Miami Marlins, and he said he felt good and that it was "a good start." Barring any setbacks, Hoskins should resume hitting by the end of the week as he ramps up baseball activities during his recovery from a strained right hamstring. The 31-year-old slugger was enjoying a strong comeback campaign after missing all of last season due to a torn ACL, slashing .233/.340/.474 with nine home runs, five doubles, and 27 RBI over 133 at-bats, and he should be stashed in all fantasy leagues with a late-May or early-June return to the Brewers in the cards. With five homers and five stolen bases through 95 ABs, Jake Bauers is worth a look as Milwaukee's primary first baseman for some short-term pop and speed.

  • Joe Ross Leaves Early With Back Tightness

    Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Joe Ross (back) left his start after just 15 pitches in the first inning on Monday against the Miami Marlins with back tightness. Manager Pat Murphy said in the dugout that Ross was dealing with some back tightness before the game but felt good enough to continue after warming up. However, Ross' back tightness returned in the first inning. In his lone inning of work, Ross gave up a hit and allowed a walk to the Marlins in the bottom of the first inning. It's unclear exactly how serious the 30-year-old's back injury is, and we probably won't know more until Tuesday. But if you have been using Ross in deeper fantasy leagues, you may want to start preparing right now just in case he has to go on the injured list. Entering Monday's game, Ross was 2-4 with a 4.61 ERA and 1.37 WHIP with 35 K's in 41 innings over his eight starts.

The 24-year-old has been leading off for the Brewers for the last few weeks and has looked solid in the role so far. While he may not help fantasy managers in the home run and RBI categories, he can be a solid contributor of AVG, runs, and steals and should be owned in most leagues for that reason.

He enters Sunday's play second in the majors with a .350 batting average, while his 37 RBI has him tied for third in what has become a breakout campaign.

    Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Garrett Mitchell (finger) is scheduled to start swinging a bat on the team's current road trip, likely in Boston next weekend from May 24-26, according to manager Pat Murphy. The Brewers have said that Mitchell could return around June 1, so the 25-year-old has from now until then to progress in his rehab and go out on a minor-league rehab assignment. The former first-rounder out of UCLA suffered a fractured finger in spring training action and has been unable to play at all in 2024 to this point. He played in just 19 major-league games last year due to a season-ending shoulder injury, too, so Mitchell has had some bad luck with injuries early in his career. In 47 major-league games since 2022 with the Brew Crew, Mitchell has hit .278/.343/.452 with five homers, 16 RBI and nine stolen bases. Milwaukee has a crowded outfield picture as things stand now, so Mitchell's role is to be determined once he makes his 2024 debut.

    The Milwaukee Brewers promoted outfield prospect Chris Roller to the major league club on Wednesday. In a corresponding move, the Brewers optioned Oliver Dunn to the minors. The 27-year-old made his major league debut Wednesday night when he entered the game in the sixth inning as a pinch-hitter, ultimately striking out in a six-pitch at-bat. The right-handed hitter did a lot of that in his 56 Triple-A at-bats this season, striking out at a 36.2% clip (21 times compared to two walks), while batting .250 with zero home runs and one stolen base. Roller was drafted in 2017, so it's nice when you see a player's perseverance pay off, but as far as fantasy is concerned, he is off the radar for now.

Turang has been hot of late and has served as Milwaukee's leadoff hitter the previous seven games, batting .296 with two steals and three RBI. Yelich has been hot all year and has picked up where he left off since returning from the injured list with a back injury, as he's gone 10-for-25 (.400) with three RBI since May 8. Ortiz, who's hitting .261 with three homers and 11 RBI in 92 at-bats this year, could be worth looking into as a DFS sleeper on Wednesday in the three-hole.

    Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Rhys Hoskins (hamstring) is not in the team's starting lineup on Tuesday against the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates. It shouldn't come as a big surprise after Hoskins was forced out of Monday's contest early due to a right-hamstring injury. The 31-year-old right-handed slugger was expected to undergo an MRI exam on Tuesday to determine how serious his hamstring issue is. Hoskins is going to have a second opinion as well, so fantasy managers shouldn't be surprised if an injured list stint looms. With Hoskins out on Tuesday, Jake Bauers is at first base and is batting fifth against Pirates right-hander Quinn Priester. Bauers is currently hitting .244/.326/.476 with an .802 OPS, four home runs, 21 RBI, four steals and 12 runs scored this year and could become more popular in fantasy leagues if Hoskins is forced to the IL.

  • Jake Bauers Continues Hit-Streak On Monday

    Headshot for Jake Bauers

    Milwaukee Brewers first baseman/outfielder Jake Bauers increased his hit streak to four games on Monday by knocking a single and a grand slam. On the season, the 28-year-old has a solid .244/.326/.476 line with four home runs, four stolen bases, and 21 RBI. Since the start of May, he has been riding an impressive .346/.500/.727 line with a strong 5:9 BB:K ratio. Bauers has only been in the lineup against right-handed pitchers so far this season which does hinder his fantasy value. Nonetheless, in deeper mixed leagues and NL-only formats, fantasy managers looking for a strong source of power should consider adding Bauers to their team.

  • Rhys Hoskins To Have MRI On Tuesday

    Headshot for Rhys Hoskins

    Updating a previous report, Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Rhys Hoskins (hamstring) said that he will undergo an MRI exam on Tuesday after leaving Monday's 8-6 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates with a hamstring injury. We'll have a better idea of how much time Hoskins might have to miss once his MRI results are known, but fantasy baseball managers should be preparing for a potential trip to the injured list. Before hitting the showers early on Monday, Hoskins singled in his only at-bat to raise his batting average to .233 with an .814 in his first year in Milwaukee. The former fifth-round pick of the Philadelphia Phillies in 2014 out of Sacramento State has provided plenty of power (nine home runs) and run production (27 RBI) after missing all of 2023 with a torn ACL in his knee. Check back on Tuesday for Hoskins' MRI results.

    Headshot for Rhys Hoskins

    Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Rhys Hoskins left Monday's game versus the division-rival Pittsburgh Pirates after sustaining an apparent lower-body injury while running to first base in the second inning. General manager Matt Arnold says that Hoskins is being evaluated by the training staff after the infielder pulled up lame and was replaced by Blake Perkins, but his injury appears to be a hamstring issue and not his knee. The Brewers should have an official diagnosis sometime following the game, but it's fair to expect Hoskins to at least get the day off for the second game of the series against Pittsburgh on Tuesday. Consider him day-to-day until more is known. The 31-year-old slugger is enjoying a strong comeback season after missing all of last year with a torn ACL, slashing .233/.340/.474 with nine home runs, five doubles, and 27 RBI through 133 at-bats. Jake Bauers is the next man up at the cold corner on Milwaukee's depth chart.

    Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Freddy Peralta has been reinstated from his five-game suspension and is making the start on Saturday against the visiting St. Louis Cardinals. Peralta was given a five-game suspension for throwing at Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Jose Siri on April 30. The 27-year-old likely went through his in-between-starts routine this week after last starting on Sunday against the Chicago Cubs, so he shouldn't have his workload limited in any way on Saturday in a good matchup against St. Louis. The Cardinals currently have the fourth-worst OPS (.631) in all of baseball. Only the offenses of the White Sox, Marlins and Pirates are worse. Peralta is 3-1 on the year with a 3.49 ERA and 0.98 WHIP with 50 K's in 38 2/3 innings over his seven starts. Start him on Saturday against St. Louis.

  • Robert Gasser Twirls Gem In Major-League Debut

    Headshot for Robert Gasser

    Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Robert Gasser twirled a scoreless gem in his major-league debut during Friday's victory over the division-rival St. Louis Cardinals, allowing just two hits with four strikeouts. You couldn't ask for a better showing in Gasser's first taste of big-league action, and the hurler got plenty of run support to record the win on Friday. The 24-year-old left-hander is Milwaukee's No. 5 prospect for 2024, according to MLB Pipeline, and he will almost certainly get another turn in the Brewers' banged-up rotation following this promising performance. Unfortunately, that next appearance lines up for a more difficult task in the form of the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park next Friday. Gasser is worth a speculative add for fantasy managers needing pitching help, but he'll be best suited on benches against Houston on the road.

    The Milwaukee Brewers acquired right-hander Mitch White from the San Francisco Giants on Friday in exchange for cash considerations and designated right-hander Corbin Martin for assignment in a corresponding move. White started the year with the Toronto Blue Jays and is now on his third organization in the first month and a half of the year. The 29-year-old will likely be a swingman for Milwaukee after recording a rough 7.63 ERA (5.71 FIP) and 1.76 WHIP with nine walks and seven strikeouts in 15 1/3 innings with the Blue Jays and Giants this year, all of which have come out of the bullpen. If the former second-round pick by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2016 out of Santa Clara makes any starts for the Brewers because of their banged-up rotation, White will merely be a shaky deep-league streaming option in fantasy.

  • Joel Payamps Placed On Bereavement List

    Headshot for Joel Payamps

    The Milwaukee Brewers placed right-hander Joel Payamps on the bereavement list on Friday. In other moves, the Brewers selected left-hander Robert Gasser's contract from Triple-A Nashville, recalled right-hander Janson Junk from Nashville, optioned right-hander Tobias Myers to Nashville and moved right-hander J.B. Bukauskas (triceps) to the 60-day injured list. Payamps could be away from the team for as long as a week, but it's more likely that he's away for around two to three days. With Abner Uribe in the minors and Payamps away from the team, Trevor Megill is the clear favorite for saves in Milwaukee. That should be the case until regular closer Devin Williams (back) is ready to return around the All-Star break. Payamps currently has a 5.25 ERA, a 1.25 WHIP, a career-high four saves, three walks and nine strikeouts in 12 relief innings for the Brewers this year.

    Milwaukee Brewers closer Devin Williams (back) is scheduled to start playing catch within the next two weeks, according to manager Pat Murphy. Williams has a checkup with a doctor for his back injury in the coming days. The Brewers' bullpen took a big hit when it was announced that the 29-year-old All-Star closer wouldn't be ready to make his 2024 debut until around the All-Star break due to a serious back issue that has been bothering him for a while. The good news is that Williams appears to be making progress. Given how elite he's been as a closer when healthy, he should be stashed in an injured list spot in all fantasy formats. Joel Payamps and Abner Uribe have been called on in a few save situations, but as of right now, Trevor Megill is the favorite for saves in Milwaukee with Williams still out of the picture.

  • Jackson Chourio On The Bench Again Friday

    Milwaukee Brewers outfield prospect Jackson Chourio remains out of the team's starting lineup on Friday as the club faces the visiting St. Louis Cardinals. It's the third straight game that the struggling 20-year-old has started on the bench for the Brew Crew since Christian Yelich returned from the injured list. Blake Perkins is starting in center field for Milwaukee and will hit seventh against Cardinals veteran right-hander Lance Lynn. Chourio is going to be back in the starting lineup at some point, but right now he's the odd man out after starting the year with a .205/.275/.387 slash line while adding four home runs, 13 RBI, six stolen bases and 14 runs scored in his first 33 games in the big leagues. Fantasy managers should keep Chourio on their benches until he gets going.

    Milwaukee Brewers infielder Joey Ortiz went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, his third of the season, in the team's 7-1 win over the visiting division-rival St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday. Ortiz has homered in his last two games played and has gone 3-for-11 with the two home runs, a triple, two RBI and two runs scored in four games since the calendar flipped to May. The 25-year-old former fourth-round pick of the Baltimore Orioles in 2019 out of New Mexico State is hitting .267 (20-for-75) on the year with just 10 RBI and nine runs scored, but he's been a strong option for the Brewers at third against right-handers, as he's hitting .327 (18-for-55) against them with all three of his homers and all 10 of his RBI. On the strong side of a platoon at the hot corner, Ortiz is at least worth rostering in NL-only fantasy leagues.

    Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Rhys Hoskins went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in the team's 7-1 win over the visiting St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday, his second game in a row leaving the yard. Hoskins now has eight long balls on the year, but he's still hitting a weak .220/.322/.455 in his first year in Milwaukee through 123 at-bats. Still, the 31-year-old has been healthy and has contributed power and RBI (21) in a strong Brewers lineup as their starting first baseman. His back-to-back games with homers could be a sign that he's starting to heat up in the month of May, although he's gone just 4-for-26 (.154) with three walks and eight strikeouts in seven games since the calendar flipped from April. Even if Hoskins doesn't start hitting for average, he should continue to be a solid source of power for fantasy managers.

MLB Pipeline ranks Bitonti as the 13th overall prospect in the Milwaukee system. Bitonti is still several seasons away from a major league debut; however, he could become a name to monitor in deeper dynasty leagues down the road if he can reach Single-A before the end of the summer.

Yelich scored on a Rhys Hoskins homer in the first inning and later tripled in William Contreras. It was the lefty's second game back from a lower back strain that caused him to miss about a month of action and he looked much better in this game after an 0-for-5 in his first game back. Yelich and his fantasy owners are hoping he can pick right back up from where he was before his injury, as he was torching the ball with a .333/.407/.708 triple-slash line.

    Milwaukee Brewers pitching prospect Robert Gasser is expected to be called up from Triple-A Nashville in order to make his first major-league start on Friday against the visiting St. Louis Cardinals in his MLB debut. The club's No. 5 prospect, per MLB Pipeline, will be available for the spot start with right-hander Freddy Peralta serving a five-game suspension. The 24-year-old Gasser had the start of his 2024 season delayed in the minors with a bone spur in his elbow, but he's healthy now and ready for his big-league debut. The former second-round lefty had a 5.25 ERA and 1.50 WHIP with six walks and 17 strikeouts in 12 innings over three starts for Nashville, so despite the strong matchup on Friday against St. Louis, the rookie will still be a pretty risky streaming option with a low ceiling. It's likely that he'll head back to Nashville after Friday's start, too, so fantasy managers won't want to spend a bunch of money to acquire him off the waiver wire.

    Milwaukee Brewers infield prospect Tyler Black has been optioned back to Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday with outfielder Christian Yelich (back) being reinstated from the 10-day injured list. Black, the team's No. 4 prospect per MLB Pipeline, went 5-for-22 (.227) with two doubles, no RBI, two stolen bases, a run scored, one walk and eight strikeouts in his first seven major-league games with the Brew Crew. The 23-year-old started five of the seven games he was with the team but will now head back to the farm to hone his craft for the next time the Brewers call on him. The former 33rd overall pick in 2021 out of Wright State broke out in the minors last year and will likely be the next man up to the big leagues if the Brewers suffer another injury to their position-player crop. The left-handed-hitting corner infielder has displayed great plate discipline in his rise up the system.

Yelich will return to Milwaukee after landing on the injured list on April 16 with a lower-back strain. The 32-year-old veteran left-handed swinger didn't go on a minor-league rehab assignment, so it will be interesting to see how he performs jumping right back into the action. Fantasy baseball managers are hoping he picks up right where he left off, as Yelich will return to a .333/.422/.744 slash line with a 1.166 OPS, five home runs, 11 RBI, two steals and seven runs scored in his first 39 at-bats.

Junis' comeback from a right-shoulder injury in early April was interrupted when he was stretchered off the field on April 22 after being hit in the neck by a batting practice ball. He was alert and responsive when he was sent to a local hospital and was able to resume playing catch by April 26. It's a tough break for the 31-year-old veteran, who allowed just one earned run on three hits while walking one and striking out four in a four-inning no-decision in his lone start of the year on April 2 against the Minnesota Twins. When healthy, Junis should be a candidate to return to Milwaukee's starting rotation next month.

Earlier in April, Wilken took a fastball to the face but thankfully did not suffer any loss of vision or concussion as a result. The 21-year-old returned to Double-A on May 4 and tallied a double. Wilken, who was a first-round selection in the 2023 MLB Draft, has not logged many games in the minor leagues but hopes to get himself back on track now that he is fully healthy. Wilken showcased his raw power potential in a limited opportunity with Double-A last season by launching two long balls in just six games. The sixth-ranked prospect in the Milwaukee system should be expected to reach the major leagues sometime next season.

He has recorded three doubles, four homers, six runs, eight RBI, three walks and 10 strikeouts.

Wiemer struggled in his first major league season last year with a .204/.283/.362 line. He hit 13 home runs and swiped 11 bags. The 25-year-old carried his struggles into the early part of this season with a disappointing .174/.208/.174 line with no home runs and just one stolen base. The Brewers will have a revolving door in left field for the time being, splitting between Sal Frelick, Jackson Chouiro, and Jake Bauers.

Yelich had already been doing better running and throwing before having his best session yet swinging the bat in the cage before Friday's game versus the division-rival Chicago Cubs, giving him a chance to re-enter Milwaukee's lineup in the middle of next week. A strained lower back has kept Yelich on the shelf since mid-April, but the 32-year-old star outfielder is returning first-round value on a .333/.422/.744 triple-slash line with five home runs, 11 RBI, seven runs scored, and two stolen bases in 46 plate appearances (11 games) this year.

The 31-year-old veteran backstop was removed from Tuesday's game early with right-hamstring tightness, but it appears he will stay with the team and will avoid a trip to the injured list. Sanchez will continue to work as William Contreras' backup and is worth rostering in two-catcher leagues for his power potential from the right side of the plate.

Boeve posted a dominant .553/.642/.632 stat line with a 13:5 BB:K ratio across 13 games at High-A Wisconsin. Boeve has carried the momentum into his first nine games at Double-A with an excellent .306/.405/.583 line and has already tallied four doubles and three triples. The 14th-ranked prospect is beginning to make headlines and is worth monitoring in dynasty leagues as he is quickly progressing through the minor leagues. Even though MLB Pipeline projects the 21-year-old to reach the majors in 2026, with the rate he is currently going at, do not be surprised if he is knocking on the door by next summer.

  • Brewers Option Abner Uribe To Triple-A

    Headshot for Abner Uribe

    The Milwaukee Brewers optioned right-handed reliever Abner Uribe to Triple-A Nashville after Wednesday's win over the Tampa Bay Rays. Uribe is in the process of appealing a six-game suspension that was handed down by the league after he initiated a benches-clearing brawl with the Rays on Tuesday night when he tried to punch outfielder Jose Siri following his groundout in the eighth inning. The 23-year-old was allowed to pitch on Wednesday as he appeals his suspension, and he was called into action, giving up a run on one hit with two walks in an inning of work. One of the candidates for saves to open the year with Devin Williams (back) sidelined, Uribe has three saves but also a rough 6.91 ERA with 12 walks and 14 K's in 14 1/3 innings. Joel Payamps and Trevor Megill are considered the team's co-closers with Uribe out of the picture for now.

    Milwaukee Brewers infielder Willy Adames has been crushing the ball over the last few days. On Wednesday, Adames went 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs and four RBI in the win over the Tampa Bay Rays. Adames now has three homers and eight RBI over the last two games. There was some thought that Adames would hit lower in the batting order this season. However, he has been batting cleanup or higher over the last few weeks. Adames now has 21 RBI over 30 games this season.

  • Freddy Peralta, Abner Uribe Suspended

    Headshot for Freddy Peralta

    After the Milwaukee Brewers' benches-clearing brawl against the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday, pitchers Freddy Peralta (five games) and Abner Uribe (six games) and manager Pat Murphy (two games) have been suspended. Both Peralta and Uribe are appealing their suspensions and won't have to sit out immediately for the series finale against Tampa on Wednesday. Peralta is being suspended for intentionally throwing at Rays outfielder Jose Siri. The 27-year-old was ejected as a result. Since he's appealing, he should be able to make his next scheduled start on Sunday versus the Chicago Cubs. Uribe incited the benches-clearing incident when he threw a punch at Siri after he grounded out in the eighth inning. The 23-year-old reliever has three saves on the year but also a 6.75 ERA and 1.80 WHIP in 13 appearances for Milwaukee.

    Milwaukee Brewers rookie outfielder Jackson Chourio isn't in the team's starting lineup against the visiting Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday. With Chourio starting on the bench in this one, Sal Frelick, who is starting in right field, will man the leadoff spot in the Brewers' batting order. Jake Bauers also draws into the lineup in left field and will man left field. The 20-year-old Chourio started his first major-league season strong, but he has since disappeared, going 4-for-29 (.138) with a double, no home runs, no RBI, one walk and 12 strikeouts in 10 games since April 21. The cold stretch has dropped his season line to .206/.257/.351 with four home runs, 13 RBI and five stolen bases in 97 at-bats. After an off day on Thursday, hopefully Chourio can get going on Friday in the series opener against the division-rival Chicago Cubs.

    Headshot for Tyler Black

    Milwaukee Brewers infield prospect Tyler Black is starting at first base and is batting cleanup in just his second major-league game on Wednesday against the visiting Tampa Bay Rays and right-hander Zach Eflin. In his big-league debut on Tuesday, the 23-year-old went 2-for-4 and scored a run in the eventful win over the Rays at home. Black wasn't initially in the team's starting lineup, but he entered the contest in the first inning when catcher Gary Sanchez (hamstring) was hurt. His power/speed combination, coupled with his defensive versatility, makes him a prospect worth looking into in deep-mixed fantasy leagues, and he should see plenty of at-bats against right-handed pitchers. Black got the promotion to Milwaukee by hitting .303 (30-for-99) with five home runs, 18 RBI and three stolen bases in 25 games for Triple-A Nashville this year.

    Milwaukee Brewers infield prospect Tyler Black had a memorable MLB debut in Tuesday's 8-2 win over the Rays. Black entered the game to play designated hitter after Gary Sanchez (hamstring) exited with a hamstring injury and went 2-for-4 with a single and a double. The 23-year-old is the Brewers' No. 4 ranked prospect, per MLB Pipeline. He was hitting well with Triple-A Nashville and could earn playing time if that translates to the big leagues. Fantasy managers should keep an eye on his performance and playing time in the coming days.

    Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Willy Adames had a nice game at the plate in Tuesday's 8-2 win over the Rays. Adames went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run, four RBI, and a walk. The 28-year-old has had a solid offensive start to the season, slashing .270/.369/.441 with four HR, 17 RBI, and four stolen bases in 130 plate appearances. Power has always been in his repertoire, but Adames' fantasy value could jump even higher if he can maintain a decent batting average while peppering in some steals.

    Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Freddy Peralta threw 5 1/3 innings of two-run ball with one hit and seven punchouts in Tuesday's victory over the Tampa Bay Rays. Peralta surrendered his first hit of the night in the third inning off a solo shot by Jose Siri. Peralta now sports a 3.21 ERA and a stunning 0.86 WHIP across 33 2/3 innings with 45 strikeouts. The 27-year-old remains an excellent starting pitcher and an elite contributor to your fantasy team's WHIP. He is scheduled to face the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium on Monday, May 6, in his next start.

  • Gary Sanchez Exits With Hamstring Tightness

    Headshot for Gary Sanchez

    Milwaukee Brewers catcher Gary Sanchez (hamstring) was removed from Tuesday's game against the visiting Tampa Bay Rays with tightness in his right hamstring. Sanchez hit into a fielder's choice in the first inning, coming up lame after legging out a throw to first base and getting pulled from the contest right away. Top prospect Tyler Black, who was just promoted from the minor leagues on Tuesday, replaced Sanchez to run for him. The Brewers should offer another update on Sanchez's status when he's further evaluated following the contest. The 31-year-old slugging backstop is slashing a decent .208/.283/.458 with three home runs, three doubles, and six RBI in 48 at-bats (18 games) for Milwaukee this year, and the club would really lean on the red-hot William Contreras behind the dish if Sanchez is facing a significant setback. Black would also see more work as a designated hitter in this case.

  • Brewers Set To Call Up Tyler Black

    Headshot for Tyler Black

    The Milwaukee Brewers are set to call up prospect Tyler Black. The infielder is the Brewers' No. 4 ranked prospect, per MLB Pipeline. Black has been hitting well as of late, as in his last 17 games, he's slashing 328/.425/.612 with five home runs and three stolen bases. Black has been primarily playing first and third base in the minors but is expected to challenge Jake Bauers for time at first base. Bauers has struggled as he's slashing .200/.250/.633 with two home runs. If Black can get consistent playing time, he is a viable fantasy option due to his on-base ability. Black is not on the 40-man roster so a corresponding move will need to be made by the Brewers.

  • Tyler Black Smacks Two Home Runs Sunday

    Milwaukee Brewers first baseman prospect Tyler Black keeps making the push for a promotion to the big league club, smacking two solo home runs on Sunday for Triple-A Nashville. The 23-year-old is now slashing .303/.393/.525 on the season and has shown some power (five HR), some speed (three SB), and patience (11:12 BB:K). The lefty hit 18 home runs and stole 55 bases last season in 123 games between Double-A and Triple-A, and if he does get the call, he could instantly provide a boost to the Brewers as well as fantasy lineups.

  • Christian Yelich Playing Catch From 120 Feet

    Headshot for Christian Yelich

    Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich (back) played catch from around 120 feet in the outfield on Monday. Given Yelich's history with back issues, dating back to last year, it's no surprise that the Brewers are taking things slow in his recovery from a lower-back strain that landed him on the injured list. It's good news that the 32-year-old left-hander is doing baseball activities, but it may still be a while before he's cleared to begin a minor-league rehab assignment. Despite the Brewers slow-playing Yelich's rehab, fantasy managers must keep him stashed in an IL spot in all leagues after he opened the season hitting .333/.422/.744 with a 1.166 OPS, five home runs, 11 RBI, two steals and seven runs in his first 39 at-bats. Until he's able to return, Blake Perkins should continue to benefit from more playing time in Milwaukee's outfield.

This looks to be a rest day for Hoskins after homering during Saturday's contest. The expectation is that Hoskins will return to the lineup after this one-game absence. In the meantime, Jake Bauers will hit cleanup and cover first base during Sunday's game.

    Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Sal Frelick is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's tilt with the New York Yankees. Frelick will sit against the Yankees' left-hander, Carlos Rodon. Joey Wiemer will take his place in left field and hit ninth. Frelick is hitting .267 with no home runs, five RBI, three stolen bases, and 14 runs scored. Frelick is only 2-for-18 since last Saturday. Frelick has 101 plate appearances thus far in 2024, and only eight of those have come against left-handed pitching. This appears to be the case Saturday night. Look for him back in the lineup tomorrow afternoon when veteran right-hander Marcus Stroman takes the mound for the Yankees.

  • Joey Ortiz Hits First Career Home Run, Drives In Four

    Milwaukee Brewers third baseman Joey Ortiz hit his first career home run in Friday's 7-6 victory over the Yankees, and also drove in the winning run with a walk-off single in the 11th inning. It was all part of a 2-for-4 day at the plate that included a sacrifice fly and four runs batted in. The 25-year-old is now batting .264 on the year with a double, a triple, a HR, seven RBI, and a solid .355 OBP thanks to his eight walks (ten strikeouts). Still, he's probably best left to the waiver wire but can be an interesting value play in DFS depending on the matchup.

    Headshot for Wade Miley

    Milwaukee Brewers veteran left-hander Wade Miley (elbow) needs Tommy John surgery and will spend the next 10 to 12 months rehabbing and then decide whether to continue his career. It's a tough break for the 37-year-old southpaw and the Brewers. Fantasy baseball managers that were stashing Miley in deeper leagues can now officially let go. "I've always said I want to go out on my own [terms]," Miley said. "I still feel like I've got more in the tank." While it sounds like the 14-year veteran wants to give it a shot to come back at some point in 2025, it's fair to wonder if he's already thrown his final pitch in the big leagues. Even if Miley rehabs for a comeback next season, he'll be off the radar in most fantasy formats. The former 43rd overall pick by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2008 out of Southeastern Louisiana gave up five earned runs with four walks and two K's in his two starts in 2024.

    Milwaukee Brewers reliever Trevor Megill tossed a scoreless ninth inning to notch the first save of his career during Thursday's 7-5 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. The 30-year-old has been a pleasant surprise out of the bullpen for the Brewers and has been trusted to face the heart of the opponent's order multiple times this season. He has only given up one run in five appearances thus far and has picked up three holds. The Brewers ninth-inning situation has been a bit sporadic with Devin Williams (back) still recovering from injury, but Megill is now in the mix for saves alongside Joel Payamps. Both players deserve to be rostered in deeper leagues, while Megill holds even more value in formats that count holds as a scoring category.

    Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Freddy Peralta surrendered five runs on five hits across 4 2/3 innings of work during Thursday's 7-5 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. He struck out five batters and allowed a season-high five walks in the no-decision. It was not the sharpest outing for the 27-year-old, who saw his season ERA balloon from 1.90 to 3.18 with the performance. Peralta remains one of the premier arms in fantasy baseball and today's outing was merely a blip on the radar. He should still be confidently started in all formats going into his next projected outing against the Tampa Bay Rays.

  • Jacob Misiorowski Strikes Out Seven Tuesday

    Headshot for Jacob Misiorowski

    Milwaukee Brewers pitching prospect Jacob Misiorowski finally looked like the pitcher we were expecting to see when the season opened up, tossing 4 1/3 innings of one-hit ball for Double-A Biloxi on Tuesday. The 22-year-old did not allow a run while walking one batter and striking out seven. The righty had walked 11 batters over his first three starts, so it was good to see his command get back on track. He now has 22 strikeouts in 14 2/3 innings on the young season and figures to see some Triple-A action sooner rather than later if he can string together a couple more good starts. The Brewers' top pitching prospect has the ability to be a front-of-the-rotation piece if he can keep the walks to a minimum, but at 6-foot-7 and with a fastball that can touch 100 mph, he could also be a closer. Either way, dynasty managers should keep a close eye on his ascent.

    Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich (back) ran on the field on Wednesday for the first time since injuring his back. Yelich hasn't swung or played catch yet, however, as he's progressed slower than anticipated from a strained lower back. Considering Yelich battled back issues in the early part of his career with the Miami Marlins, expect the Brew Crew to take a cautious approach with the 32-year-old star left fielder. Yelich was returning first-round fantasy value before hitting the shelf, slashing .333/.422/.744 with five home runs, 11 RBI, seven runs scored, and two stolen bases across 39 at-bats (11 games). The switch-hitting Blake Perkins has received everyday ABs in Milwaukee's outfield since Yelich went on the injured list, slashing .309/.387/.473 with two homers, six RBI, 13 runs scored, and two swipes through 55 ABs overall, and he's worth a look for those in NL-only or deep mixed leagues who need a stopgap solution.

    Milwaukee Brewers middle infielder Brice Turang went 1-for-2 with a walk and two stolen bases on Tuesday versus the Pittsburgh Pirates. Turang's two stolen bases lifts his total to 12 on the season. He is also hitting a respectable .319 with two homers and nine RBI. Turang is unlikely to help much in the power department, but he has been playing every day and so far, has held his own. His true value comes in the speed department and managers looking to improve in that category should consider Turang. He is now tied with Elly De La Cruz for the league lead in stolen bases and will look to take sole control of the lead on Wednesday versus the Pirates.

  • Tobias Myers Making MLB Debut On Tuesday

    Headshot for Tobias Myers

    Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Tobias Myers is making his major-league debut on Tuesday and is starting on the mound against the Pittsburgh Pirates on the road. Myers was called up by the Brew Crew last week for pitching depth, but he never got into a game, so this will be the 25-year-old's big-league debut. Before his call-up to Milwaukee, he posted a strong 1.62 ERA with 22 strikeouts and seven walks in 16 2/3 innings at Triple-A Nashville. Given all of the injuries to the team's starters, Myers has a real shot to stick in the Brewers' rotation for a little bit if he impresses the club on Tuesday. He was originally drafted in the sixth round by the Baltimore Orioles in 2016 and has gone 5-20 with a 5.74 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in his four seasons at Triple-A.

The 23-year-old keeps making his case for a promotion to the big league club, now with a .315-2-13-14-2 line on the young season. With Rhys Hoskins splitting his time between DH and 1B, and Jake Bauers and Owen Miller doing nothing of note with their time manning first base, Black could get the call to the Show sooner rather than later. The lefty could instantly add a boost to the offense with his power-speed combo after belting 18 home runs and stealing 55 bases last season between Double and Triple-A in just 123 games. Fantasy managers with an open bench spot could stash him ahead of his call-up.

    Milwaukee Brewers pitching prospect Robert Gasser (elbow) could be ready to pitch for Triple-A Nashville as soon as this week after being on the shelf for almost a month in the minors due to a bone spur in his left elbow. The Brewers could really use some help in their big-league starting rotation with DL Hall (knee), Wade Miley (elbow) and Jakob Junis (head, shoulder) all on the injured list, but the 24-year-old Gasser is going to need to prove he's healthy at Nashville before he's a consideration for a big-league call-up. Bryse Wilson is likely to jump into the Brewers' rotation, but other options in the minors could be Aaron Ashby, Tobias Myers and Janson Junk. Gasser is listed as the Brewers' No. 5 prospect, per MLB Pipeline.

    Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Bryse Wilson is likely to move from the bullpen into the team's starting rotation for now with DL Hall (knee), Wade Miley (elbow) and Jakob Junis (head, shoulder) all on the injured list right now. Wilson made a spot start on the last homestand when the Brewers had a hole in their rotation and tossed 3 2/3 innings of scoreless ball while walking one and striking out two in a no-decision against the San Diego Padres. The former fourth-rounder of the Atlanta Braves in 2016 has been solid in his seven appearances for the Brewers so far in 2024, posting a 3.29 ERA and 0.88 WHIP with 12 strikeouts in his 13 2/3 innings pitched. In NL-only leagues for sure, he's worth a pickup if he officially joins Milwaukee's rotation.

    Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Jakob Junis (head, shoulder) was hit in the head by a line drive during pre-game batting practice before Monday's contest against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Junis is currently on the 15-day injured list with a right-shoulder injury. He was alert and responsive and was taken for more observation by an ambulance at PNC Park in Pittsburgh. The 31-year-old will surely be put through the league's concussion protocol, and it's unclear right now if his head injury will affect how quickly he'll be able to return from the IL for the Brewers. Junis made just one start on April 2 against the Minnesota Twins before going on the shelf with his shoulder injury. In his lone start, he gave up just one earned run on three hits while walking one and striking out four in four innings for a no-decision.
