Top Keston Hiura News

  • Brewers' Keston Hiura: Crushes seventh homer

    Hiura went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs in Friday's victory over the Pirates.

    Something about Pirates pitching particularly appeals to Hiura, who has hit 43 home runs in his career and 12 against Pittsburgh. Hiura has filled a part-time role all season and started just seven times over the Brewers' last 23 games, but he has gotten the job done when called upon, posting a .756 OPS over 124 plate appearances.

  • Brewers' Keston Hiura: Hits sixth homer

    Hiura went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's victory over the Reds.

    The long ball was Hiura's sixth of the season, and it was also his first extra-base hit off a lefty this season. Hiura has some notable reverse splits going at the moment, as the right-handed hitter owns a stellar 1.090 OPS against pitchers who throw with the same hand but just a .411 OPS against southpaws.

  • Brewers' Keston Hiura: Steals base Tuesday

    Hiura went 0-for-2 with a walk, a hit-by-pitch, a stolen base and a run scored in an 8-7 loss Tuesday against the Cubs.

    Hiura walked and swiped second base in the second inning. He was plunked in the sixth and came around to score on a Victor Caratini homer. Since returning from Triple-A, Hiura has reached base safely in each of his eight starts and has compiled a .269/.424/.615 line in those games. Tuesday was his first start at second base since April 30 and could be a sign that Milwaukee will find more playing time for the 25-year-old moving forward.

  • Brewers' Keston Hiura: Swats walkoff homer in return

    Hiura went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 7-6 extra-innings win over Atlanta.

    Called up from Triple-A Nashville earlier in the day when Willy Adames (ankle) landed on the injured list, Hiura got to play hero for the Brewers by launching a game-winning homer off Jesse Chavez in the bottom of the 11th inning. Hiura had been on fire at Nashville, going 8-for-19 (.421) in five games with three home runs, and the 25-year-old was able to carry that momentum forward for at least one game with Milwaukee.

  • Brewers' Keston Hiura: Recalled by Brewers

    Hiura was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday.

    Hiura spent the first month of the season on the major-league roster and hit .216 with two homers, five runs, five RBI and a stolen base. After going 8-for-19 with three homers, 10 RBI and three runs over five games in Nashville, the 25-year-old will rejoin the major-league club to provide additional infield depth after Willy Adames (ankle) was placed on the 10-day IL.

  • Brewers' Keston Hiura: Sent to Triple-A

    Hiura was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Friday.

    Hiura went 1-for-4 with a solo homer and three strikeouts Thursday against the Reds, but the long ball wasn't enough to retain his spot on the big-league roster. He has a .688 OPS in 42 plate appearances, but his 47.6 percent strikeout rate remains a significant issue. Hiura should receive more regular playing time down with Nashville.

  • Brewers' Keston Hiura: Hits second homer

    Hiura went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's victory over the Reds.

    The long ball was the second of the season for Hiura, who is hitting better and walking more than he did last season but has also struck out in nearly half of his 42 PA. He has started 12 games this season, and with the Brewers healthy, he figures to continue working in a part-time role.

  • Brewers' Keston Hiura: Adds insurance with first homer

    Hiura went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Pirates.

    After going 0-for-3 with two strikeouts to start the day, Hiura gave the Brewers a couple of important insurance runs with his first home run of the season in the seventh inning off Pirates reliever Miguel Yajure. Through 21 plates appearances, Hiura is slashing .222/.333/.722 with eight strikeouts and three walks.

  • Brewers' Keston Hiura: Handling short-side platoon role

    Hiura will start at second base and bat fifth in Wednesday's game against the Orioles.

    Hiura will get his third start of the season, with each of those assignments coming against left-handed starting pitchers. He'll be filling in at the keystone Wednesday for the lefty-hitting Kolten Wong, who takes a seat with southpaw John Means on the hill for Baltimore.

  • Brewers' Keston Hiura: Putting power on display

    Hiura went 1-for-3 with a double, a run and a walk in Saturday's spring game against Seattle.

    Hiura is coming off a couple trying seasons, including a 2021 campaign in which he posted just a .557 OPS over 197 plate appearances and struck out 77 times in 173 at-bats. However, the once-hyped prospect has gotten back on track this spring, going 10-for-25 (.400) with four homers, three doubles, 10 RBI and a 1.500 OPS. Strikeouts remain an issue, as he has fanned in 10 of his 30 PA, and he is slated to open the season in a reserve role. However, Hiura is still just 25 years old, and the door has not been closed on him as of yet.

  • Brewers' Keston Hiura: Getting OF reps

    Hiura will begin seeing some time in the outfield this spring, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. "He's got to earn spots right now and so we're looking for ways for him to be more valuable to the roster," manager Craig Counsell said Sunday.

    Hiura's poor defense at second base and first base made him a potential designated hitter candidate, but the Brewers would likely also want to give Christian Yelich, among others, starts at DH, so it would behoove Hiura to have an avenue into the lineup beyond DH. His sprint speed is roughly league average and his arm is notoriously bad, so it seems unlikely that Hiura will fare much better in the outfield than he did on the right side of the infield.
