Brewers' Corey Knebel: Returns from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Brewers recalled Knebel from Triple-A Colorado Springs ahead of Sunday's game against the Nationals.

Knebel wasn't included among the Brewers' first wave of callups Saturday, but that was only because he needed to spent a full 10 days in the minors after being optioned to Triple-A on Aug. 23. The demotion came a couple weeks after Knebel was bumped from the closer's role, as the right-hander didn't see his performance improve upon transitioning to middle-relief work. Now that he's back with Milwaukee, the 2017 All-Star will need to show improved command and control while working in lower-leverage situations before manager Craig Counsell can use him with confidence in key spots.

Brewers' Corey Knebel: Set to return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knebel will rejoin the Brewers on Sunday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Knebel has been trying to figure things out at Triple-A Colorado Springs over the last 10 days after an early-August demotion to a low-leverage role wasn't enough to turn his season around. He's struggled with both injury and inconsistency this season, posting a 5.08 ERA. He may have to regain manager Craig Counsell's trust in a middle-relief role before having a shot to regain closing duties, especially with current closer Jeremy Jeffress posting a 1.56 ERA in his last 15 outings.

Brewers' Corey Knebel: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knebel was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Thursday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

The Brewers' former closer has been a shell of his 2017 self this season, notching a 5.08 ERA in 39.0 innings this year after recording a stellar 1.78 mark last year. Knebel will head down to Triple-A to work on some things while Josh Hader and Jeremy Jeffress handle closer's duties.

Brewers' Corey Knebel: Slated for lower-leverage work after blowup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Craig Counsell said Knebel, who suffered the loss Thursday against the Padres after allowing four runs on three walks and a hit, will be be used in an "easier spot" the next time he pitches, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. "The next time out, we'll give him an easier spot, for sure. But at some point, we're going to try to work to get him back to big spots in the game," the manager said.

Knebel entered Thursday's game with the Brewers up 4-2, but he proceeded to walk the first three batters he faced before allowing an RBI-single to Travis Jankowski and getting the hook with no outs and the bases loaded. All three baserunners would come around to score thanks to a Hunter Renfroe grand slam, driving Knebel's ERA up to 4.79, the highest it's been since May. This is the relievers second loss in his last three appearances, and he owns a brutal 6.97 ERA through 10 appearances since the All-Star break, prompting Counsell to presumably turn elsewhere -- likely Jeremy Jeffress or Josh Hader -- in the ninth inning for the time being. Despite the temporary demotion, it sounds like the manager is keen on giving Knebel his role back, assuming he earns it. "I think we function best when Corey has the ninth, but if we have to do things a little differently to get him back on track, then that's how we'll approach it," Counsell added.

Brewers' Corey Knebel: Suffers loss Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knebel struck out four batters over two innings but also allowed the go-ahead home run in the 11th inning of Sunday's loss to the Rockies.

Knebel finished Sunday's game after being used in the seventh inning his previous time out, but he was not able to hold the lead in his second inning on the bump. While Knebel has not been used exclusively as the closer of late, he is still the top option for saves out of the Brewers' bullpen for the time being.
