Brewers' Justin Topa: Shifts to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Brewers transferred Topa (elbow) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Tuesday.

Milwaukee was already preparing for Topa to remain sidelined for the first half of the season while he recovers from a right elbow flexor strain, so the move to the 60-day IL won't have any bearing on his timeline. Instead, the transaction frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for reliever Brad Boxberger, whose contract was selected from the alternate site in a corresponding move.

Brewers' Justin Topa: Lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Brewers placed Topa (elbow) on the 10-day injured list Thursday.

The Brewers aren't anticipating Topa being available for the first half of the season while he recovers from a right flexor tendon strain, so he'll be a candidate to move to the 60-day IL when the team needs to open up an extra spot on the 40-man roster.

Brewers' Justin Topa: Diagnosed with flexor strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Topa was diagnosed with a flexor tendon strain Monday and is expected to miss at least the first half of the season, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

It's a discouraging diagnosis for the righty, who struck out 12 of the 30 batters he faced while walking none as a 29-year-old rookie last season. He's being sent for a second opinion, at which point his timeline should become clearer.

Brewers' Justin Topa: Bound for IL with elbow issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Topa will open the season on the injured list after experiencing elbow discomfort during his appearance Saturday in a "B" game, Sophia Minnaert of Fox Sports Wisconsin reports.

Milwaukee is still awaiting the results of Topa's MRI before providing an updated timeline on his return, but given the nature of his injury, the right-hander seems likely to spend more than the minimum 10 days on the IL. The Brewers had been hoping the hard-throwing Topa -- who logged a 2.35 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and struck out 12 over 7.1 innings as a rookie in 2020 -- would fill a key role out of the bullpen to begin the season.

Brewers' Justin Topa: Could fill key relief role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Topa threw his second scoreless inning of the spring in Wednesday's exhibition matchup with the Padres.

Topa has all of six big-league appearances under his belt, but he threw the ball well as a rookie last year, and the Brewers believe he could be a key part of their bullpen in 2021. Topa stands 6-foot-4 and averaged 97.5 mph with his heater last year, so it's not hard to see why the team is high on him.

Brewers' Justin Topa: Called up again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Topa was recalled by the Brewers on Wednesday.

Topa will be part of his third transaction in as many days, as he was recalled for a doubleheader Monday before being optioned Tuesday. Whether or not he remains on the team longer this time remains to be seen. Josh Lindblom was placed on the bereavement list in a corresponding move.

Brewers' Justin Topa: Back to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Brewers optioned Topa to their alternate training site Tuesday.

He'll head back to the organization's training site in Appleton after serving as the 29th man for Monday's doubleheader with the Cardinals. Topa pitched in relief in the second game of the twin bill, taking his first career big-league loss after giving up a go-ahead unearned run in the top of the ninth inning.

Brewers' Justin Topa: Joins bullpen for doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Topa was recalled as the 29th man for Monday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.

Topa made his big-league debut in early September, allowing a pair of runs in a pair of innings. If he appears in either game Monday, it will likely be in a low-leverage relief role.

Brewers' Justin Topa: Sent back to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Topa was optioned to the alternate training site Friday.

The 29-year-old had his contract selected at the start of the week and made his major-league debut Tuesday against the Tigers, allowing two runs on two hits with two strikeouts and zero walks over two innings. Topa will hope to rejoin the big club later in the season.

Brewers' Justin Topa: Rewarded with callup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Topa's contract was selected from the Brewers' alternate training site Monday.

An unheralded righty reliever, Topa apparently turned heads this summer at the alternate training site, so the Brewers want to give him a look with the roster spot that opened up after David Phelps was traded to Philadelphia. He had a 2.63 ERA and 22 strikeouts in 24 innings at Double-A last year as a 28-year-old.

Brewers' Justin Topa: Joins roster pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Brewers added Topa to their 60-man roster pool Tuesday.

He'll assume the 60-man spot of reliever Mike Morin, who was claimed off waivers by the Marlins earlier in the day. Topa, who posted a 2.63 ERA over 24 innings in relief at Double-A Biloxi in 2019, will report to the Brewers' alternate training site in Appleton.
