News
Garza (back) was moved to the 60-day DL on Thursday.

Garza remains several weeks away from returning as he continues to rehab a lat strain, and the move will simply free up a spot on the Brewers' 40-man roster. That spot will be used on Hernan Perez, who was called up from Triple-A on Thursday after the team placed Scooter Gennett on the 15-day DL with an oblique injury.

News
Lucroy found his way on base all four times up Thursday against the Cubs, knocking a single and drawing three walks.

Unfortunately, the Brewers weren't able to get much going offensively against Jake Arrieta and the Chicago relief crew, as they had more walks (seven) than hits (six). As for Lucroy, he's clipping along with a nice .290 average and .364 OBP, but those have been pretty empty stats -- he has no homers, no steals (not that we expect those) and just six RBI.

News
Rivera will start at second base Thursday against the Cubs.

With Scooter Gennett (oblique) landing on the disabled list Thursday, it's important to note that Rivera is starting over switch-hitter Colin Walsh against right-hander Jake Arrieta, as manager Craig Counsell made a couple other moves that placed left-handers into key spots in the batting order. Counsell has not confirmed his plans for the keystone in Gennett's absence, but Thursday's lineup makes Rivera the early favorite to be the regular second baseman until Gennett returns.

News
Carter went 6-for-11 (.545) with a home run, four doubles, and two RBI in the Brewers' three-game series with the Phillies over the weekend.

Carter entered Friday's game with an .897 OPS, but he exited the weekend with a 1.050 OPS -- the sixth-best mark in the National League. He has hit in only the fourth and fifth spots in the order for the Brewers this year, and will no doubt continue to do so while he is hot.

Tyler Thornburg, #37
Year-to-date Stats

News
Thornburg tossed a scoreless eighth inning in Sunday's victory over the Phillies.

Thornburg opened the season as the Brewers' primary seventh-inning pitcher, but he entered Sunday's contest after initial setup man Michael Blazek for the third time in a row, which signals there has been a change in the pecking order at the back of the Brewers' bullpen. Jeremy Jeffress has a hold on the closer's job for the Brewers, but if he is unavailable for any reason, Thornburg -- at least for the time being -- would be the favorite to see the save opportunity in his place.

News
Presley will get his first start in RF Wednesday against the Cubs, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Presley will get the start with Domingo Santana out of the lineup Wednesday night. Presley has had only seven at-bats since being recalled last Thursday but he's connected for hits on two of those. He's a low-end fantasy play when he starts in daily leagues, but there probably won't be much value to extract in season-long leagues.

News
Flores is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Cubs.

Flores will get the night off with Kirk Nieuwenhuis getting the nod in center field Wednesday. The 24-year-old has made 11 starts for the Brewers in the outfield but is only batting .128. As long as he continues to split time and struggle at the plate, he can be ignored in most formats.

Chris Capuano, #39

News
Capuano owns a 4.09 ERA, 1.73 WHIP, and 10:6 K:BB ratio in 11 innings over eight appearances out of the Brewers' bullpen this season.

Capuano has eaten a bunch of innings for the Brewers this season, but he has not been particularly effective, allowing 19 runners to reach base in his 11 frames and giving up at least an earned run in four of his eight outings.

News
Jungmann (0-4) was ripped for five runs on six hits over just 3.2 innings against the Cubs on Thursday. He walked three and struck out just two.

Pretty much everything Jungmann did well last season, he's bungling so far this year -- his velocity is down, his strikeouts are down, his walks are way up (13:13 K:BB), he's giving up more homers, he's stranding fewer runners, and he's allowing harder contact overall. In short, this April has been an unmitigated disaster for the 26-year-old, and it wouldn't be shocking to see him end up in the minors for some fixing soon.

News
Gennett (oblique) was placed on the 15-day DL on Thursday due to tightness in his right oblique.

Gennett began experiencing tightness during batting practice Tuesday, which led to him subsequently being scratched from Tuesday's lineup. He was also excluded from Wednesday's lineup, though the matchup against the Cubs was ultimately rained out. After further evaluation, Gennett will require more than a few days to recover, so he'll head to the DL, and the Brewers have recalled infielder Hernan Perez from Triple-A Colorado Springs to take his place on the 25-man roster.

Position Breakdown
SS - 19
News
Villar went 3-for-4 with a double, a walk, three stolen bases and two runs against the Cubs on Thursday.

Unfortunately, Villar accounted for half of his team's hits and no other Brewer came around to score. But you can't pin that or the team's subpar offense on Villar, who's sitting on a .377 OBP in the early going. That's all the Brewers can possibly ask for out of their leadoff man, and if he continues his on-base renaissance, he'll hold off hot prospect Orlando Arcia far longer than originally expected.

News
Nieuwenhuis will start in center field and bat sixth against the Cubs Wednesday.

Nieuwenhuis is starting in center field for the fourth game in a row and batting sixth in the order. It's still not safe to say he's the everyday man in center given that Ramon Flores and Domingo Santana see time there as well but the Brewers are showing more trust in the 28-year-old by giving him consecutive starts. Even with the increased playing time, the .276 hitter is best reserved for deeper leagues, as he offers little in the way of counting stats.

News
Boyer owns a 2.16 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 1:3 K:BB in 8.1 innings over seven appearances out of the Brewers' bullpen this season.

Boyer, in his first season with the Brewers, has done a good job preventing runs and has not allowed a ball to leave the park. He will continue working in middle relief.

Jimmy Nelson, #52
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERABBK
3231.13.161425
 
News
Nelson (3-2) allowed three runs (one earned) on two hits and four walks in a loss Tuesday against the Cubs. He struck out six.

An Aaron Hill error set up the Cubs' two-run sixth inning, which cost Nelson both a chance at a win and at a quality start. Nelson was wild, with just 61 strikes in 109 pitches, but he induced 10 swinging strikes and recorded seven ground outs against three fly outs. The Cubs are one of the most disciplined teams in the league, and Nelson's safe approach could have worked out Tuesday if his defense had backed him up.

Carlos Torres, #59
Year-to-date Stats

0011.24.63010
 
News
Torres owns a 5.40 ERA, 1.80 WHIP, and 8:6 K:BB ratio in 10 innings over eight appearances out of the Brewers' bullpen this season.

Torres' numbers aren't pretty, and they were not helped by the four earned runs he gave up over his last four outings. He has a spot in the Brewers' bullpen for now, but that will be in jeopardy when fellow reliever Corey Knebel (oblique) is ready to return.

News
Braun is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cubs.

It's a bit concerning that Braun is not in the lineup following a team off day, but at the same time he has done a good job staying healthy this year, and it seems more likely that manager Craig Counsell is simply giving him an extended rest with the Brewers starting a stretch of 20 games in 20 days. Either way, Ramon Flores start in left field for the Brewers on Tuesday night.

Santana is not in the lineup Thursday against the Cubs.

The Brewers will stick with the same lineup they would have used had Wednesday's game not been rained out, so Santana will get a second straight day off after sitting Tuesday against Minnesota. Alex Presley will get the nod in right field, with shortstop Jonathan Villar leading off and playing shortstop.
