Albers was tagged for four earned runs in the Brewers' extra-inning loss to the Giants on Friday.
Albers was on the mound when the 10th inning got underway Friday, but he could not keep the game tied, allowing the first three runners to reach base before serving up a grand slam to Buster Posey. Albers has been generally effective this season -- he owned a 3.57 ERA as recently as June 30 -- and has been used more frequently in key spots of late, but Friday's results don't help his ratios or his case for seeing even more of those opportunities.
Albers allowed a hit in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save over Pittsburgh on Sunday.
It was the first save of 2019 for Albers and just the fourth of his career. The Brewers may have been looking to ease the workload on regular closer Josh Hader, so don't expect Albers to get anything resembling regular opportunities.
Albers picked up his third win of the season in Sunday's victory over the Giants.
Albers entered Sunday's game in a bases-loaded, no-out situation with the Brewers leading by two, but the Giants tallied just one run off him and did not score again, which led him to the victory even though he only pitched one inning, as starter Chase Anderson only pitched four innings. Albers has been a reliable arm out of the Brewers' bullpen this season, allowing the opponent to score in just nine of his 29 appearances and posting respectable ratios: a 4.34 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 30:11 K:BB.
Albers tossed a scoreless ninth inning in the Brewers' 11-5 victory over the Pirates on Thursday.
Closer Josh Hader entered Thursday's game in the eighth inning and would have been in line for a save had he remained in the game for the ninth, but with the Brewers scoring four runs in the top of the frame, manager Craig Counsell decided to take Hader out to limit his pitch count. Albers was allowed to finish the job instead, retiring all three batters he faced, one via strikeout. He has recorded two scoreless outings in a row after allowing at least one earned run in four of his previous seven appearances.
Albers tossed a scoreless seventh inning in Thursday's victory over the Phillies.
Albers was charged with protecting a four-run lead when he entered and got the job done. He really struggled at the end of the 2018 campaign, but has been reliable out of the bullpen early this season, keeping the opponent off the scoreboard in 14 of his 19 appearances while posting a 4.26 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 22:5 K:BB over 19 innings.
Albers tossed 1.1 scoreless innings in Tuesday's loss to the Cardinals.
Albers allowed three earned runs in a loss to the Dodgers last week, but he has notched two scoreless outings since. He has been used in a multitude of situations this season, but has not regularly been part of the Brewers' late-inning mix, which has given him limited appeal in fantasy formats.
Albers pitched two scoreless innings in the Brewers' victory over the Cardinals on Sunday.
Albers entered Sunday's game in the sixth inning with the Brewers trailing 4-1, and he kept the opposition off the scoreboard in consecutive frames to keep the Brewers in the game. Albers has not allowed an earned run over three innings this season while posting a 4:1 K:BB, but his fantasy value is minimal right now, as he is not currently part of the Brewers' late-inning mix.
Albers threw a scoreless inning of relief in Tuesday's spring game against the Rangers.
Albers has had mixed results this spring, allowing just two earned runs over 5.2 innings (3.18) and striking out eight batters, but also giving up six hits, issuing two walks and hitting two batters. The Brewers signed Albers to a two-year contract last offseason, and he has likely done enough to hang onto his roster spot. However, he really struggled at the end of last year, and could be on a bit of a short leash if that carries into this season.
Albers allowed two earned runs over one inning in Sunday's loss to the Pirates.
Albers took the mound Sunday for the first time in nearly three weeks, and just like he had done seven times over his previous nine appearances he allowed multiple runners to cross the plate. Albers was briefly a fantasy factor early on, notching two wins and a blown save between April 6-11, and he owned a 1.08 ERA at the end of May. However, he has struggled mightily ever since, giving up 25 earned runs over just 9.1 innings (24.11 ERA), and will not garner consideration for the playoff roster should the Brewers reach the postseason.
Albers (hamstring) was reinstated from the 10-day DL on Wednesday.
As expected, Albers will rejoin the active roster prior to Wednesday's series finale against the Reds. He pitched in three minor-league contests with Double-A Biloxi and should be available out of the bullpen immediately. Across 29 appearances with Milwaukee this year, he's logged a 6.23 ERA and 1.48 WHIP. Keon Broxton was optioned to the minors in a subsequent move.
Manager Craig Counsell said Monday that Albers (hamstring) is back with the team and will be reinstated from the 10-day DL in the coming days, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Albers was able to make a third minor-league appearance with Double-A Biloxi on Saturday, and didn't experience any signs of discomfort or lingering pain in his hamstring. Expect the right-hander to be activated from the shelf Tuesday or Wednesday.
Albers (hamstring) will pitch in a third rehab game with Double-A Biloxi on Saturday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Albers tossed a pair of perfect innings with five strikeouts against Mobile on Thursday, which was hit second outing for Biloxi after suffering a left hamstring earlier this month. Manager Craig Counsell said that the club will "see where we're at" in regards to the right-hander's status following Saturday's assignment.
Albers (hamstring) began a rehab assignment with Double-A Biloxi on Tuesday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Albers is eligible to return Wednesday, and given the short length of his absence, he'll likely not need a long rehab assignment. The Brewers will want to make sure he's right this time around, though, as he was lit up for 10 runs in just 1.2 innings after returning from his previous trip to the disabled list (with a shoulder injury).
Albers was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday with a left hamstring injury.
Jordan Lyles, who was recently claimed off waivers from the Padres, will take Albers' spot on the active roster and in the bullpen. This move isn't all too surprising, as Albers had allowed 10 runs in just 1.2 innings (four appearances) since returning from his last stint on the disabled list (for a shoulder injury). The move is retroactive to Sunday, making the veteran eligible to return Aug. 15, though the Brewers figure to give the right-hander all the time he needs to get right for the stretch run.
Albers struck out three batters in his lone inning of relief in Thursday's 21-5 loss to the Dodgers but surrendered three runs on three hits -- including two home runs -- and a walk.
Albers has been a disaster since returning from the disabled list July 28 after a two-and-a-half-week absence due to a shoulder injury. In his three appearances out of the bullpen, the right-hander has been roughed up for eight earned runs on seven hits and two walks over 1.1 innings. Those struggles along with the trade-deadline pickup of Joakim Soria may relegate Albers' usage to low-leverage spots for the time being.
Albers (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Saturday.
Albers, who has been sidelined since June 11, joins a pretty stacked bullpen after the recent acquisition of Joakim Soria. Look for him to operate in low-to-mid-leverage situations going forward.
Albers (shoulder) will rejoin the big-league club in San Francisco this weekend, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Albers was able to clear his final hurdle Tuesday night, tossing 1.2 innings with Triple-A Colorado Springs during his second rehab outing. The right-hander could be available for Thursday's series opener against the Giants after missing the past six weeks due to right shoulder soreness. Over 25 appearances with the Brewers this year, Albers has posted a 3.45 ERA and 1.15 WHIP.
Albers (shoulder) pitched a simulated game Saturday that he and manager Craig Counsell said went well, meaning Albers will next pitch for Triple-A Colorado Springs on a date yet to be determined, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The righty was supposed to serve in a rehab capacity at Low-A Wisconsin on Saturday, but rain in the forecast changed the plans. Albers likely will make two rehab appearances before rejoining the major-league bullpen, which could happen sometime in the next week.
Albers (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Low-A Wisconsin on Wednesday.
Albers has been on the shelf since the middle of June due shoulder inflammation. He was able too throw a pair of bullpen sessions last weekend and will likely require a couple outings at the minor-league level before reporting back to the Brewers bullpen.
Albers (shoulder) is slated to throw a bullpen session Friday and Sunday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
If Albers doesn't feel any discomfort during his scheduled throwing sessions, he'll likely progress to a stint in the minors early next week, with a return possible shortly after the All-Star break. He last pitched June 11 against Chicago before landing on the disabled list with shoulder soreness.
