  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Nabs win as bulk reliever

    Rea (4-2) notched the win Saturday in Boston, yielding two runs on three hits and three walks over 5.2 frames. He recorded two strikeouts.

    Jared Koenig opened and did yeoman's work, retiring all four batters he faced, including three via strikeout. Rea then took over and put up a bunch of zeros himself before the Red Sox finally broke through in the seventh, scoring a couple runs on three hits. The right-hander had come into this one with a 7.20 ERA over his last three outings, which might be why the Brewers elected to use an opener to switch things up. Rea is likely to face the Cubs next, although whether it will be as a traditional starter or bulk reliever again is unclear.

  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Following opener

    Rea will follow opener Jared Koenig out of the bullpen Saturday versus Boston, Adam McCalvy of reports.

    Rea was originally slated to start Saturday's contest, but the Brewers will instead opt to use Koenig as an opener for the second game in a row. The 33-year-old Rea got off to a hot start in 2024, but he has given up 12 earned runs in 15 innings across his last three starts.

  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Yields five runs

    Rea (3-2) allowed five runs on eight hits and four walks over 4.1 innings Sunday, striking out five and taking the loss against the Astros.

    Rea received a rude welcome with a four-run first inning by the Astros. He then managed to keep them in check until yielding another run in the fifth. Over his last three starts, Rea has registered a 7.20 ERA and has failed to complete five innings in two of those outings. The rough stretch has pushed his ERA from 2.67 to 4.07 through 48.2 frames. Rea has been tagged with a loss in two straight starts after beginning the year 3-0. His next start is expected to be in Boston next weekend.

  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Loses despite quality start

    Rea (3-1) allowed three runs on six hits and a walk over six innings Monday, striking out five and taking a loss against the Pirates.

    Rea was greeted with a two-run homer by Jack Suwinski in the first inning but held the Pirates to just one run over his next five frames. It was Rea's third quality start of the year but he was handed his first loss. He also generated a season-high 12 whiffs, including five via the splitter. Rea has produced a 3.45 ERA with a 30:13 K:BB through eight starts. His next outing is lined up to be in Houston this weekend.

  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Pulled at 65 pitches

    Rea didn't factor into the decision Tuesday against Kansas City, allowing four runs on seven hits and a walk across 4.2 innings. He struck out two.

    Tuesday's appearance was Rea's shortest of the campaign, failing to reach five innings pitched for the first time this year. While he kept the ball in the park, Rea tied his season high in hits allowed and yielded three extra-base hits. Rea has been hit or miss during his last four starts, allowing four or more runs twice but giving up no runs in his other two outings. He's expected to toe the rubber Monday against the Pirates.

  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Shuts down Tampa

    Rea (3-0) earned the win Wednesday over Tampa Bay, allowing four hits and two walks while striking out five over six scoreless innings.

    It was a strong bounce-back effort from Rea after he allowed five runs on three homers against the Yankees in his last outing. Overall, it's been a strong start to the year for the 33-year-old right-hander. Rea's held opponents to one run or fewer in four of his six starts, lowering his ERA to 2.67 with a 1.22 WHIP and 23:11 K:BB over 33.2 innings. Rea's currently on track for a road matchup with Kansas City in his next outing.

  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Roughed up Friday

    Rea gave up five earned runs on four hits and three walks while striking out four batters across six innings during Milwaukee's win over the Yankees on Friday. He did not factor into the decision.

    All five of the Yankees' runs against Rea came via the long ball, as Juan Soto and Alex Verdugo both hit solo shots in the first two innings, and Trent Grisham blasted a three-run homer in the fourth. Rea still boasts a 3.25 ERA through 27.2 innings despite his poor showing Friday, though his fantasy value could take a significant hit if he's unable to bounce back in his next start -- tentatively scheduled for Wednesday against the Rays.

  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Fires five shutout frames

    Rea didn't factor in the decision Sunday in St. Louis after he allowed five hits and three walks over five scoreless innings. He struck out three.

    Rea tallied just three whiffs and threw 49 of 89 pitches for strikes, but he kept the Cardinals off the board for his first scoreless start of the campaign. The 33-year-old has taken no-decision in each of his past two starts, but he's been a pivotal rotation piece early this season for Milwaukee with a 2.08 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 14:6 K:BB in 21.2 innings to go along with a 2-0 record.

  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Win streak halted

    Rea didn't factor into Sunday's decision, allowing three runs on five hits and a walk across 5.2 innings against the Orioles. He struck out six.

    After picking up victories in his first two starts this season, Rea wasn't able to add to his season total Sunday. Rea struggled to keep the ball inside Oriole Park, allowing solo home runs to Cedric Mullins in the second inning and to Ryan O'Hearn in the third inning for his first two homers given up this season. Through 16.2 innings, Rea owns a 2.70 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP and is set up to face the Cardinals on Saturday.

  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Handles Mariners for second win

    Rea (2-0) got the win over the Mariners on Sunday, allowing two runs (one earned) on seven hits over six innings. He struck out three.

    Rea was uncertain to even make his start Sunday after he was reported to have been battling a stomach virus the day prior but turned in another successful outing. He gave up runs in back-to-back frames to open up the game but was unbothered after the Brewers staked him a 6-2 lead by the third. Rea's stuff hasn't been flashy by any means, but he's been an important piece to this rotation that does not have much depth. Things won't get any easier for the 33-year-old who is projected to face the Orioles in Baltimore during the upcoming week.

  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Notches win in season debut

    Rea (1-0) earned the win Sunday against the Mets after he allowed one run on five hits and two walks over five innings. He struck out two.

    The right-hander wasn't particularly dominant as he generated just eight swinging strikes on 84 pitches, but he limited the damage by holding New York to just one extra-base hit. Rea was effective as a swingman last season with a 4.55 ERA, 1.19 and 110:38 K:BB across 124.2 innings, and he's opened 2024 with a more secure spot in the rotation. A matchup with the Mariners awaits next weekend.

  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Wins rotation spot

    Brewers manager Pat Murphy confirmed Tuesday that Rea will begin the season as part of the Brewers' starting rotation, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Rea accumulated a 4.55 ERA and 1.19 WHIP alongside a 110:38 K:BB across 124.2 innings last season, but the 33-year-old righty has looked much sharper this spring. Murphy's announcement comes immediately after Rea pitched four shutout innings against the Cubs while striking out seven batters and surrendering just one walk. With Rea officially claiming a rotation spot, DL Hall, Aaron Ashby, Jakob Junis and Joe Ross will compete with each other for the last two starting jobs in Milwaukee.

  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Re-signs with Milwaukee

    The Brewers re-signed Rea to a one-year contract Thursday with a club option for 2025, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Rea hadn't enjoyed much major-league success prior to the 2023 season, but he proved to be a valuable -- and flexible -- member of the Milwaukee pitching staff while registering a 4.55 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 110:38 K:BB in 22 starts and four relief appearances covering 124.2 innings. The 33-year-old right-hander should be a strong consideration for the Opening Day rotation in 2024.

  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Gets spot on wild-card roster

    Rea has made the Brewers' roster for their NL Wild Card Series matchup against the Diamondbacks.

    The 33-year-old is essentially replacing Brandon Woodruff, who is in danger of missing the entire postseason because of a capsular injury in his right shoulder. Rea was terrific in a swingman role down the stretch for Milwaukee, delivering a 2.22 ERA and 25:6 K:BB over his final three starts and three relief appearances covering 24.1 innings.

    Rea allowed two hits over five scoreless frames during Friday's win over the Cubs. He struck out six without walking a batter and did not factor in the decision.

    Rea rolled through his shutout performance Friday, tossing 50 of 67 pitches for strikes. He allowed just one runner to reach scoring position and never faced much of a threat. It was his longest appearance since July 30. Rea posted a 2.22 ERA over his final 24.1 frames, dropping his season ERA to 4.55 alongside a 110:38 K:BB across 124.2 total innings.

  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Getting start Friday

    Rea is scheduled to start Friday against the Cubs, Adam McCalvy of reports.

    Rea gets the ball in place of Brandon Woodruff, who won't make another start for the NL Central champions until the wild-card round of the playoffs. The 33-year-old right-hander holds a 4.74 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 104:38 K:BB in 119.2 innings (21 starts, four relief appearances) this season with the Brewers.
