  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Cracks roster for NL WC Series

    Wiemer is part of the Brewers' roster for their NL Wild Card Series matchup against the Diamondbacks.

    Wiemer finished out the regular season with Triple-A Nashville, but the Brewers have opted to carry seven different outfielders into this best-of-three series versus Arizona. The 24-year-old could serve as a late-inning defensive replacement or maybe even a pinch-hitting option against lefties. He posted an .815 OPS against southpaws this year at the MLB level.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Sent back to Triple-A

    Wiemer was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Sunday.

    Wiemer operated as Milwaukee's primary center fielder earlier this season, but he's worked in a reserve role of late and has a .483 OPS in 61 at-bats since the start of August. Blake Perkins (oblique) was reinstated from the injured list in a corresponding move.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Dealing with laceration in mouth

    Wiemer sustained a laceration in his mouth on a collision during Sunday's game against the Yankees, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Wiemer entered Sunday's matchup as a defensive replacement in the bottom of the ninth inning and went 1-for-1 with a double, a run and an RBI in the extra-innings loss. He sustained his injury during an outfield collision, but it's unclear whether he'll be forced to miss additional time. He should tentatively be considered day-to-day ahead of Monday's series opener against Miami.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Joins lineup Monday

    Wiemer (mouth) will start in center field and bat ninth in Monday's game against the Marlins.

    Wiemer suffered a mouth laceration when he was involved in a collision in the outfield during Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Yankees in 13 innings, but the injury won't be anything that keeps the rookie out as the Brewers begin a four-game set with Miami. Though he's largely served as a late-inning defensive replacement in recent weeks, Wiemer will pick up his first start since Sept. 3 on Monday.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Sitting out Wednesday

    Wiemer is not in the lineup for Wednesday's tilt versus the Twins.

    Wiemer was a late addition to Tuesday's lineup in what is now his lone start over the Brewers' last four games. He's seen a dramatic dip in playing time over the last two weeks as Milwaukee turns to Sal Frelick in center field and Tyrone Taylor in right. Frelick is dealing with a hamstring injury, though, which could potentially offer a reprieve for Wiemer if an injury list stint is ultimately needed.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Added to lineup Tuesday

    Wiemer has been added to the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Twins.

    Wiemer will cover center field and bat ninth versus the Twins and right-hander Bailey Ober after Sal Frelick was scratched due to lingering right hamstring soreness. Wiemer is slashing just .215/.290/.379 across his first 115 major-league games this year and has seen a significant dip in playing time in recent weeks.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Playing time trending down

    Wiemer is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rangers.

    Wiemer has operated as Milwaukee's primary center fielder for most of the season, but he'll sit Sunday for the sixth time in the past eight games, with both of those starts coming against left-handed pitchers. It appears the 24-year-old will now have to settle for a spot on the small side of a platoon in center field. Sal Frelick is dealing with a hamstring injury, so it'll be Christian Yelich, Tyrone Taylor and Mark Canha starting from left to right in the outfield.

    Wiemer isn't in the Brewers' lineup Saturday against the Rangers.

    Wiemer isn't in the Brewers' lineup Tuesday against the Dodgers.

    Tuesday will mark the third consecutive game Wiemer hasn't started despite boasting a .296 batting average (8-for-27) since the beginning of August. Sal Frelick will slide to center field in Wiemer's place, allowing Tyrone Taylor to start in right and bat ninth.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Sitting Saturday

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Returns to lineup

    Wiemer (illness) is starting in center field and batting ninth Friday against the White Sox.

    A stomach bug prevented Wiemer from playing Wednesday against the Rockies, but the issue seems to have subsided. The 24-year-old outfielder is slashing .304/.360/.348 with three RBI and two runs scored since the beginning of August.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Sits due to stomach ailment

    Wiemer was scratched from the Brewers' lineup Wednesday against the Rockies due to a stomach virus, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Wiemer is one of two Brewers regulars sitting out Wednesday due to an illness, as Carlos Santana will hit the bench for a second straight game. It's unclear whether Wiemer and Santana are dealing with the same type of ailment, but in any case, the Brewers are hopeful that both players will show enough improvement in their respective recoveries to rejoin the starting lineup following Thursday's team off day. Blake Perkins will pick up the start in center field Wednesday in Wiemer's stead.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Scratched from starting nine

    The Brewers scratched Wiemer from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rockies due to an unspecified issue, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Blake Perkins will replace Wiemer in the starting nine in center field and as the Brewers' No. 9 hitter. The Brewers will likely provide an explanation for why Wiemer was scratched from the lineup later Wednesday.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Will get breather

    Wiemer is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Rockies.

    Wiemer has done a fair amount of hitting in recent weeks, but he has not handled right-handers well all season, and he will be held out Monday with righty Peter Lambert on the mound for the Rockies. Sal Frelick will man center field in Wiemer's place.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Wiemer is not in the lineup for Sunday's game in Atlanta.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Sitting in second straight

    Wiemer is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Atlanta.

    Wiemer is on the bench for a second straight day, with Adam McCalvy of MLB.com relaying that the consecutive absences fall in the category of a baseball decision rather than the outfielder dealing with an unreported injury. Though he already looks like one of the better defensive center fielders in the majors, the rookie's production at the plate has slipped of late. Since the start of July, Wiemer is slashing .200/.333/.300 with two extra-base hits in 16 games.
