      Brewers' Corbin Burnes: Shines in long relief

      Corbin Burnes allowed one run on one hit and three walks while striking out eight over 5.1 innings out of the bullpen against the Reds on Saturday.The right-hander was excellent in relief of Brett Anderson, inducing 14 swinging strikes on 77 pitches. It marked his second straight appearance working in tandem with Anderson, who has been limited so far as he works his way back from a finger injury. Burnes may have done enough here to earn a starting assignment next week, though he's showing enough of a strikeout punch to warrant an active spot in many leagues regardless of role.

      Brewers' Corbin Burnes: Works in tandem with Brett Anderson

      Corbin Burnes didn't factor into the decision while working 3.2 innings out of the bullpen Monday in the Milwaukee Brewers' 6-4 loss to the White Sox. He struck out five and gave up two runs on three hits and two walks.After starting in his first appearance back on July 25, Burnes was deployed as a "piggyback" pitcher behind Brett Anderson (finger), whose arm wasn't conditioned to handle a normal starter's workload in his season debut. Since Burnes threw 64 pitches in the relief outing, he'll likely be down for the remaining three games of the series before potentially returning to action in a starting role over the weekend during the Brewers' three-game set with Cincinnati. Burnes' relief appearance could pave the way for one of Freddy Peralta or Eric Lauer to make a spot start Thursday or Friday.

      Brewers' Corbin Burnes: No decision in short start

      Corbin Burnes allowed one run on two hits and three walks over 3.1 innings in Saturday's 8-3 win over the Cubs. He had six strikeouts and didn't factor in the decision.The young right-hander pitched fairly well Saturday, but he struggled a bit with his control as he needed 75 pitches to record 10 outs. Burnes figures to receive a longer leash as he continues to get stretched, but he'll need to bring down the walk total to have a real chance of pitching later into games. The 25-year-old is next scheduled to take the mound Friday versus the Cardinals.

      Brewers' Corbin Burnes: Named No. 2 starter

      Corbin Burnes will start Saturday against the Cubs, Sophia Minnaert of Fox Sports Wisconsin reports.Brett Anderson (blister) will open the year on the injured list, so Burnes takes his spot in the rotation -- he may have made the rotation regardless, but this expedited that announcement. Burnes had electric stuff last year but really struggled with his command and confidence, eventually seeing a sports psychologist in the offseason. Since reporting to camp in February, his stuff has been perhaps even better, touching the high-90s with his fastball while also showing off a devastating low-90s cutter/slider. He will face Yu Darvish in Chicago on Saturday and will then start at home against St. Louis the following weekend.

      Brewers' Corbin Burnes: Competing for rotation spot

      Corbin Burnes is one of three options to win the Milwaukee Brewers' fifth starter job, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.Per Sammon, Burnes will be competing with Eric Lauer and Freddy Peralta during summer camp. Burnes threw a live batting practice session Monday and said there has not been much dialogue about specific roles other than that he will continue to be stretched out. The Brewers could conceivably go with a six-man rotation where it's a tandem start on the sixth day, or they could just be very conservative with how deep they let the non Brandon Woodruff starters go. Burnes was one of 10 Brewers to spend a portion of the shutdown period working out and throwing in Phoenix.

      Brewers' Corbin Burnes: Spring success continues

      Corbin Burnes allowed one earned run over four innings in Monday's spring game against the Mariners. He gave up one hit and posted a 6:1 K:BB in the outing.Burnes gave up his first run of the spring Monday, but was otherwise dominant like he has been each time out thus far. Over 10 frames this spring he owns a 0.90 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and a 13:3 K:BB. He is still presumably the seventh option on the starting pitcher depth chart for the Milwaukee Brewers, but there is no doubt he is making a push to climb into the No. 5 spot by Opening Day.

      Brewers' Corbin Burnes: Another stellar outing

      Corbin Burnes tossed three scoreless innings in Wednesday's spring game against the White Sox. He gave up three hits, hit a batter, and posted a 4:1 K:BB in the contest.Burnes has taken the mound three times this spring and has shut down opposing hitters, allowing just the three hits and posting a 7:2 K:BB over six frames. He hasn't forced his way into a rotation spot just yet, but he is at least in the conversation. The Milwaukee Brewers are planning to use him as a starter this year, so if he does not earn a spot in the big-league rotation he will head to Triple-A San Antonio. In that scenario, he would be among the top options should the Brewers need to bring up a starter, and perhaps the most preferred one.

      Brewers' Corbin Burnes: Impresses in spring outing

      Corbin Burnes tossed two perfect innings and struck out two batters in Friday's spring game against the Dodgers.Burnes is off to a strong start this spring, allowing just one runner to reach base over three innings and punching out three batters. His stellar stuff plays up when he throws in small doses, but the Milwaukee Brewers still view him as a starter and are stretching him out this spring. He's currently on the outside looking in for a spot in the rotation, but he's certainly not out of the mix if he keeps finding success as he goes deeper into games over the coming weeks.

      Brewers' Corbin Burnes: Stretching out as starter

      Corbin Burnes is being stretched out as a starter this spring, according to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.Burnes had a disastrous 2019 campaign and spent most of the season either in the bullpen or in the minors, but it was not long ago he was the Milwaukee Brewers' top pitching prospect and the team wants to give him another shot to work in that role. If Burnes starts all spring, chances are he will open the season in the minors, as six players are currently ahead of him in the running for rotation spots. Given his skills, though, a strong spring will at least give him a chance to break camp starting for the big club.
