Hiura went 1-for-4 with a walk, a solo home run and a second run scored in Friday's 6-1 win over the Diamondbacks.
The rookie continues to rake. Hiura is slashing .286/.360/.532 through 19 games in August, and in 64 big-league contests he has 15 home runs, eight steals, 38 RBI, 41 runs and a dynamite .958 OPS.
Hiura went 3-for-7 with two doubles, two RBI, two runs and a stolen base Saturday in the Brewers' 15-14 win over the Nationals in 14 innings.
The rookie continued to shine at the dish and on the bases in the Brewers' thrilling win, but he made things more difficult on Milwaukee by committing a two-out throwing error in the bottom of the 14th. Fortunately for the Brewers, Junior Guerra was able to strike out pinch hitter Joe Ross to end the threat. Milwaukee will continue to live with Hiura's regular lapses in the field so long as he keeps bringing life to an offense that has been lacking in reliable second-half performers aside from reigning NL MVP Christian Yelich. Hiura owns a monstrous .344/.420/.664 batting line since the All-Star break.
Hiura went 3-for-4 with a pair of home runs, a double, three RBI and three runs Wednesday in the Brewers' 8-4 win over the Pirates.
Hiura had gone 4-for-32 at the dish over his prior nine games before busting out in a big way in the series finale in Pittsburgh, reaching base four times while posting a career-high three extra-base knocks. The rookie has more than lived up to his billing as a polished power-speed threat with 13 home runs and seven steals in 52 games, but he could still use further refinement in the field. He committed his 10th error after he was unable to corral a throw in the bottom of the fourth, preventing the Brewers from turning a potential inning-ending double play.
Hiura is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs.
Hiura is in a 3-for-22 slump since the end of his 16-game hit streak last weekend and will receive a breather in Sunday's series finale. Mike Moustakas will cover the keystone in his place while Travis Shaw takes over at third base.
Hiura went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Reds.
The rookie went deep to lead off the fifth inning, Hiura's 10th homer of the year. He's slashing .327/.384/.613 through his first 40 big-league games, and despite Travis Shaw's apparent resurgence in the minors, it seems unlikely Hiura will lose his grip on the starting second base job in Milwaukee.
Hiura (quadriceps) is starting at second base and batting seventh Tuesday against Cincinnati.
Hiura was scratched from Monday's lineup due to quad tightness, but he was able to make a pinch-hit appearance Monday night and has been given the green light to return Tuesday. The rookie second baseman has been red hot of late, slashing .486/.537/.865 with a home run and nine RBI over his last 10 games.
Hiura (quadriceps) walked in a pinch-hitting appearance Monday in the Brewers' 6-5 loss to the Reds.
The Brewers made Hiura a late scratch from the starting nine while the rookie was battling a tight left quad, but his usage off the bench implies his injury isn't a major concern. Hiura will presumably be re-evaluated when he reports to work Tuesday before the Brewers decide whether to reinsert him back into the lineup at second base or extend him another day off.
Hiura was scratched from Monday's lineup against the Reds due to left quadriceps tightness.
Hiura was named the National League player of the week earlier in the day, but he'll be held out Monday due to injury. He'll be considered day-to-day moving forward. Tyler Saladino draws the start at the keystone and will bat eight in Hiura's stead.
Hiura went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run in a 10-7 loss to the Diamondbacks on Friday.
While Hiura turned in another quality performance at the plate, it wasn't a solid all-around night, as he made an error to negate a potential double play in the third inning and was also caught stealing in the contest. Even so, Hiura's offensive excellence since the All-Star break should be enough for the Brewers to stick with him in an everyday role despite his shortcomings in other areas. Through his first eight games of the second half, the rookie has gone 17-for-31 with nine extra-base hits, nine RBI, eight runs and three steals.
Hiura went 3-for-3 with two walks, a home run, three runs scored and two RBI in Tuesday's 13-1 rout of Atlanta.
The rookie's solo shot in the second inning got the Brewers rolling, and he remains a key part of the offense after that. Hiura is making sure he's in no danger of a return trip to Triple-A, slashing .357/.438/.661 with four homers, four steals, nine runs and nine RBI in 15 games since his return to Milwaukee in late June.
Hiura went 3-for-4 with a double, a triple, an RBI and a stolen base in Monday's loss to the Braves.
Hiura has come out of the gates hot in the second half, going 9-for-16 (.563) with five extra-base hits, four RBI, and two steals in four games. The player Hiura replaced in the Brewers' starting lineup, Travis Shaw, is getting things going at the Triple-A level, but Hiura doesn't seem to be in any mood to swap spots again. He now owns a .915 OPS through 31 big-league games.
Hiura went 3-for-4 with a walk, a double, a home run and two RBI in Friday's 10-7 extra-inning loss to the Giants.
The rookie's solo shot in the bottom of the 10th didn't affect the outcome, but it did give Hiura an impressive eight homers in his first 28 big-league games. The 22-year-old is slashing .276/.339/.524 to begin his career, but he'll need to keep producing with Travis Shaw starting to find his stroke at Triple-A.
Hiura went 1-for-3 with a run, two stolen bases and two walks in a 7-6 victory over the Pirates on Friday.
The 22-year-old only had one steal this season coming into Friday, so to see him swipe a pair Friday was surprising. Hiura has received quite a bit of playing time lately, though, playing in eight games since the Brewers recalled him June 28. He is batting .269 with six home runs, 10 RBI, 11 runs and three steals in 93 at-bats this season.
Hiura went 2-for-5 with a homer and two runs scored in Monday's 8-6 win over the Reds.
Hiura broke a scoreless tie with his solo shot in the fifth frame. It was his first homer since being recalled from Triple-A San Antonio on Friday. The rookie infielder has an .848 OPS across 85 plate appearances. As long as he continues hitting like this, the Brewers will be forced to keep him in the lineup.
Hiura was recalled by the Brewers on Friday.
Hiura spent most of the month of June with Triple-A San Antonio despite posting an .865 OPS over his first 17 big-league games, but with fellow infielder Travis Shaw failing to turn things around at the big-league level, the Brewers decided it was time for the two to swap spots. Hiura started all but one game when he was up earlier in the season, and with Shaw in the minors, he figures to play second base nearly every day for the Brewers moving forward.
The Brewers will promote Hiura from Triple-A San Antonio, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.
Hiura has earned his second stint with the big-league club this season, after he racked up a .281/.333/.531 line across 69 plate appearances in Milwaukee earlier in the campaign. To make room for him on the 25-man roster, the Brewers optioned Travis Shaw to Triple-A San Antonio, which should clear the path for regular playing time at second base for Hiura.
Hiura homered in his last two games with Triple-A San Antonio and is now hitting .323/.404/.677 -- good for a 1.081 OPS -- over 54 minor-league games this season.
Hiura put up huge numbers with San Antonio before an impressive three-week stint with the Brewers from mid-May to early June, and he has continued to mash since being sent back down earlier this month. It's not clear when he will be called back up, but when he does, he figures to be an impact bat for the big club like he was last time around.
Hiura is 9-for-29 (.310) with two home runs, two doubles and seven RBI in seven games since being optioned to Triple-A San Antonio.
Hiura hit the ball well with San Antonio (1.106 OPS) prior to making his big-league debut May 14, hit the ball well for the Brewers (.864 OPS) over his 17 games with the big club, and has continued hitting the ball well since returning to the Triple-A level (.941 OPS). The Brewers have not indicated when they plan to call him up again, but that day may not be too far down the road -- and he figures to hit the ball well again whenever it comes.
Hiura was optioned to Triple-A San Antonio on Monday.
Hiura will head back to the minors to free up a spot on the roster for Travis Shaw (wrist), who is slated to return from the 10-day injured list ahead of Tuesday's series opener against the Marlins. The well-regarded prospect fared well in his first taste of the majors, slashing .281/.333/.531 with five homers and a stolen base in 17 games for the Brewers, and should be back with the big club at some point this summer. Look for Mike Moustakas to shift back to second base in the meantime, with Shaw reclaiming his spot at the hot corner.
Hiura will start at second base and bat cleanup in Sunday's series finale at Pittsburgh.
Hiura hit a clutch two-run homer in the ninth inning Saturday to force extra-innings and has three home runs and seven RBI in the last four contests. It's unlikely to be an everyday change since Mike Moustakas (hand) is out Sunday after being hit by a pitch, but it's a clear indication of how well the 22-year-old has hit since his promotion in mid-May. Hiura is slashing .300/.354/.567 with five home runs and a double in his first 16 major-league games.
