Brewers' Keston Hiura: Drills fourth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hiura went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 4-2 loss to Minnesota.

The 24-year-old launched his fourth home run of the season off Sergio Romo in the eighth inning. For the second time this season, Hiura has gone deep in back-to-back games, bringing his OPS up to .833 on the year.

Brewers' Keston Hiura: Three hits, homer in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hiura went 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's 9-3 win over the Reds.

Hiura singled in a run during the Brewers' six-run sixth inning, and then went back-to-back with Christian Yelich an inning later. The second baseman raised his OPS more than 100 points with this one performance (from .658 to .764) after chipping in his second stolen base Saturday.

Brewers' Keston Hiura: Swipes second bag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hiura went 0-for-3 with a walk, two strikeouts and a stolen base in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Reds. He also committed two errors.

It's been a slow start for Hiura in the batting-average department (.213), but at least he's providing a little category juice in fantasy leagues with two homers and two steals through 12 games. He may be due for a day off soon, especially after his pair of errors in the field Saturday (one fielding, one throwing).

Brewers' Keston Hiura: Another multi-hit performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hiura went 2-for-6 in Thursday's win over the White Sox.

Hiura has been one of the few productive bats in the Brewers lineup to start the season, and he is currently riding a two-game hitting streak while reaching base in nine straight contests. He has slashed .278/.357/.472 with three extra-base hits, five RBI, three runs scored and a stolen base during that nine-game stretch.

Brewers' Keston Hiura: Collects first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hiura went 1-for-2 with a home run, three RBI and a run scored Tuesday against the Pirates.

Hiura took Derek Holland yard in the sixth inning, homering to one of the deepest parts of PNC Park. It was his first first long ball of the season, though he has now collected at least one hit in three of his last four games.

Brewers' Keston Hiura: Starting Wednesday's exhibition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hiura (arm) is starting at second base and batting third in Wednesday's exhibition game against the White Sox.

The 23-year-old was scratched from an intrasquad game with right arm fatigue a week ago, but his presence in Wednesday's lineup indicates it won't impact his availability for Opening Day. Hiura's should remain near the top of the lineup for the Brewers after slashing .303/.368/.570 with 19 home runs and 23 doubles in 84 games as a rookie in 2019.

Brewers' Keston Hiura: Set to play defense Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hiura (arm) is expected to play defense in Monday's intrasquad game, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

The 23-year-old has been dealing with right arm fatigue over the past few days, but he's serving as the designated hitter in Sunday's intrasquad action. Hiura should be in the lineup for the start of the season, whether he's the DH or starting at second base.

Brewers' Keston Hiura: Starting at DH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hiura (arm) is starting at designated hitter in Sunday's intrasquad game, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

Ryan Braun (general soreness) has been unavailable the past couple days, and if the regular season began today, Hiura may be the Brewers' designated hitter. However, Braun and Hiura have a few more days to get right before Friday's opener against the Cubs. Hiura's throwing arm is currently too sore for him to man the keystone.

Brewers' Keston Hiura: May return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hiura (arm) could participate in Sunday's intrasquad game, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

The 23-year-old remains out of Friday's action and the Brewers won't have an intrasquad game Saturday. GM David Stearns said the team isn't "particularly concerned" about Hiura's sore throwing arm, and a return to the field Sunday could go a long way toward cementing his status for Opening Day.

Brewers' Keston Hiura: Team not worried about arm
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager David Stearns said the Brewers "are not particularly concerned" about Hiura's sore throwing arm, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Stearns added that the arm issue does not appear to be related to the elbow ligament injury Hiura dealt with in college, which is good news. The 23-year-old is expected to take a few days off from throwing before being re-evaluated.

Brewers' Keston Hiura: Sitting with arm fatigue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hiura was scratched from Wednesday's intrasquad game with right arm fatigue, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

It's unclear when the issue first surfaced for the 23-year-old, but he won't be taking part in Wednesday's intrasquad action. Per McCalvy, GM David Stearns said Hiura's absence was precautionary and more information is expected on his status Thursday.

Brewers' Keston Hiura: Three homers thus far
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hiura hit his third home run of the exhibition season in Friday's spring game against the Giants.

Hiura has picked up right where he left off last season, going 6-for-16 (.375) with three homers, a double, and five RBI over seven games this spring. He has struck out just four times in 17 plate appearances, which -- albeit over a small sample size -- is a lower rate than the 30.7 percent of the time he was punched out in his first big-league campaign. Cutting the strikeouts will be key for Hiura moving forward, and if he is able to do so he could become an even more dangerous hitter than he already is.

Brewers' Keston Hiura: First homer this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hiura went 2-for-3 and hit a two-run home run in Friday's spring game against the Dodgers.

Hiura was hitless over his first two appearances this spring, but he notched a couple base hits Friday, including a deep shot to center field. He will start at second base Opening Day and will regularly occupy a prime spot in the Brewers' batting order.

Brewers' Keston Hiura: Smacks solo homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hiura went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs scored Thursday against the Reds.

Hiura took Tyler Mahle deep in the second inning to record his 19th home run of the season. He now has three home runs in 10 games since coming off the injured list Sept. 14, also recording at least one hit in eight of those contests. The 23-year-old continues to show plenty of promise at the plate, maintaining a .300/.365/.576 line while also chipping in nine steals across 80 games this season.

Brewers' Keston Hiura: In Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hiura (wrist) is in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates.

Hiura was removed from Saturday's game after being struck by a pitch in his final at-bat, but he appears no worse for the wear Sunday morning. Hiura will start at second base and hit cleanup for the Brewers on Sunday afternoon.

Brewers' Keston Hiura: Exits after HBP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hiura went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 10-1 rout of the Pirates but was removed from the game in the eighth inning after being hit by a pitch.

Given the score, the move was likely precautionary, but Hiura's status for Sunday's game should become clearer once the Brewers' trainers have a chance to check him out. The rookie has hit safely in six straight games and is slashing .316/.381/.684 over 21 plate appearances since returning to the lineup from a hamstring strain.

Brewers' Keston Hiura: First homer this month
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hiura went 1-for-4 with a home run in Wednesday's loss to the Padres.

Padres starter Dinelson Lamet carved up the Brewers on Wednesday, outside of Hiura's sixth-inning solo shot that brought his team within a run. Hiura has not finished a game since rejoining the lineup a couple days ago, but he still received seven at-bats over the last two games and is 3-of-9 since returning to action Sept. 14 after missing just over two weeks with a hamstring injury. Hiura figures to play regularly the rest of the way, and it should not be much longer before he is ready to play a full nine innings again.

Brewers' Keston Hiura: Returns to starting lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hiura (hamstring) is starting at second base and batting fifth Tuesday against San Diego.

Hiura saw two pinch-hit appearances over the weekend, and he's since been cleared to return to the starting lineup after missing time with a left hamstring injury. He's slashing .302/.370/.571 with 16 homers, 43 RBI and nine stolen bases over 72 games this season.

September 16, 2019 10:08 PM
Brewers' Keston Hiura: May enter as defensive replacement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hiura (hamstring) could be available to enter Monday's contest against the Padres as a defensive replacement if his pregame workout goes as planned, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

The Brewers are understandably exercising caution with the rookie second baseman, but he could take a big step forward Monday if his pregame work goes well. Skipper Craig Counsell noted that the team will continue to monitor Hiura's hamstring on a daily basis.

September 16, 2019 04:32 PM
Brewers' Keston Hiura: Sits again Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hiura (hamstring) remains out of the lineup Monday against the Padres.

Hiura was activated from the 10-day injured list Wednesday but still hasn't been cleared to actually start a game. He's made a pair of appearances off the bench, though so his return to the lineup likely isn't too far away. Cory Spangenberg starts at second base Monday.
