Brewers' Jacob Nottingham: Undergoes thumb procedure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nottingham had successful surgery on his left thumb Wednesday, Adam McCalvy of reports.

The 25-year-old appeared to sustain the injury during the loss to the Dodgers in Game 2 of the Wild Card Round, though it's unclear why he waited until now to receive the surgery. Regardless, Nottingham will have less than two months to recover before the expected start of spring training in February.

Brewers' Jacob Nottingham: Sitting Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nottingham is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Friday's doubleheader in St. Louis.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brewers' Jacob Nottingham: Sitting in first game of twin bill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nottingham is out of the lineup for the first game of Monday's doubleheader versus the Cardinals.

With starts behind the dish in four of the Brewers' previous six games, Nottingham appears to have at least temporarily jumped ahead of Omar Narvaez on the team's depth chart at catcher. Though Narvaez will catch Josh Lindblom in the first game of the twin bill, expect Nottingham to re-enter the lineup in the nightcap.

Brewers' Jacob Nottingham: Drives in two in blowout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nottingham went 1-for-5 with a home run, a walk, two RBI and an additional run Wednesday in the Brewers' 19-0 win over the Tigers.

Nottingham's second long ball of the season was one of a franchise-record 13 extra-base hits on the afternoon for the Brewers, who posted their biggest run total in more than a decade. Though Nottingham should remain on the active roster the rest of the season while Manny Pina (knee) is out, he'll likely continue to operate as the Brewers' No. 2 backstop behind Omar Narvaez, who received a breather Wednesday.

Brewers' Jacob Nottingham: Pops first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nottingham went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and an additional run scored in Friday's 9-1 win over the Pirates.

In his first game of the year, Nottingham made an impact with his fourth-inning homer. He also got aboard after he was hit by an errant Derek Holland pitch in the third inning, and Nottingham went on to score on Ryan Braun's homer. The 25-year-old Nottingham figures to serve as the backup to Omar Narvaez more often than not over the last month of the season.

Brewers' Jacob Nottingham: Back in majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nottingham was recalled from the alternate training site Friday.

Manny Pina landed on the IL with a torn meniscus, which will probably spell the end of his regular season, so Nottingham is set to serve as the Brewers' backup catcher going forward. He could be in the lineup Friday with lefty Derek Holland on the hill for Pittsburgh.

Brewers' Jacob Nottingham: Optioned to alternate training site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nottingham was optioned to the Brewers' alternate training site Monday.

Brewers' Jacob Nottingham: Added to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nottingham was recalled by the Brewers on Wednesday.

Nottingham spent the first few days of the season working out at the Brewers' alternate training site. He'll be replacing reliever Bobby Wahl on the active roster, who was optioned in a corresponding move. He'll line up as Milwaukee's third catcher and won't have a clear path to playing time.

Brewers' Jacob Nottingham: Heading to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nottingham was optioned to Triple-A San Antonio on Thursday, Adam McCalvy of reports.

Offseason trade acquisition Omar Narvaez and Manny Pina are locked in as Milwaukee's top two catchers and are currently healthy, so it's no surprise Nottingham will join San Antonio when play resumes. The 24-year-old appeared in nine big-league games in 2019 but spent most of the season at Triple-A and had a .231/.313/.355 slash line with five homers in 83 games.

Brewers' Jacob Nottingham: Likely opening in minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nottingham will likely open the season in the minors, according to Will Sammon of The Athletic.

Offseason acquisition Omar Narvaez and long-time Brewer Manny Pina are locked in as the club's top two catchers, so there simply is not room on the 26-man roster for Nottingham when both of his fellow backstops are healthy. Nottingham did earn praise for his receiving work this spring from manager Craig Counsell, which at least bodes well for his chances should the Brewers need a fill-in for Narvaez or Pina at any point.
